Hand mixer or stand mixer?

I don’t have a mixer but am doing more baking and could do with one

I also have a bread machine that I use daily and so I’m wondering if I have space for a stand mixer too

In which case I guess I should go with a hand mixer?

...unless a stand mixer can replace my bread machine and so my dough kneading and il just bake it in the Dutch oven instead of machine?

What should I buy please?!

I use a hand mixer but then my kitchen is tiny.

Personally I would invest in a stand mixer. Bread baked in a dutch oven is far better than in the bread machine. I only use my bread maker for the dough facility. Hope this helps.

I only used my bread machine to make the dough too; baking in the oven gives a much better loaf. My bread maker failed and I couldn't replace it, (even though it was still under guarantee because every man and his dog were buying bread makers from Argos) so I use the stand mixer. A long way round to say you don't need both.

I don't go in for display pineapples, and i think counter top mixers fall into this category unless you actually use this frequently. Hand mixer neatly kept in a drawer. Fwiw, mine is made of beautiful shiny steel and every bit as eye candy as the pretty counter top mixers.
