thismisn't the best time to post, most people are feeding kids bathing etc, are you looking for a all purpose mixer or one for baby food?

sigh..and I wasnt going to post today...

I recommend my magimix 5100 it is brill, I use it for everything.

If you mean an actual mixer then the Kenwood Chef is very good and better than the kitchen aid according to a caterer friend of mine.

yes deffo trying to give up. Not posting but lurking for a while. Well a big fat zero for that today

kitchen aid - hmmm I think possibly emperors new clothes

but FWIW I only have my magimix - I dont even have a blender - and cook anything and everything with it. you can make pizza dough using the plastic paddles although I tend to do bread etc by hand as I quite enjoy it.

I have the Bamix and it is fab! So handy as wall mounted so always handy but doesnt take up counter space. It alone will do basic blending/mixing stuff-gen used for liquidising soups/getting lumps out of sauces and custard/mixing powdered milk (for orphan lambs!)
I have also got a little food processor thing that just clips on the stick bit, just the right size for chopping a few veg really small, making breadcrumbs etc and so easy to wash up.
I do have a full sized food processor and a very pretty kitchen aid blender-both of which are hardly used as so much more faffy to wash up.
I have a kitchenaid mixer having had a kenwood for 10 yrs, was seduced by nigella but have to say that I think kenwood was better although not as attractive on work surface!
Just call me gadgetgirl!

Have a Kenwood Chef and love it. My mum has had hers for probably 25 years and it's still excellent. Kitchen Aid might be prettier but I've heard they're not as good. Go for Kenwood ma chere ks. I also have a Magimix thingy and don't like it (also the plastic bit that holds the grater has managed to break, don't know how!!)

I love my Kitchenaid. Quite fancy a Magimix for chopping stuff though.

Magimix, without a doubt. I find my mum's 30 year old Kenwood chef better for dough mixes, but Magimix wins for me - its fab. Wish i could justify upgrading from my 1997 3100 to a chrome satin 5100 - but i can't as it is still going ( and will be, no doubt for the next 20 years). Kitchen Aids are endorsed by nigella, which makes them a big no no for me.

Food processor - Moulinex, without a doubt. Just got the Ovatio Duo Press 3 and it's fab - gets used daily.

I know this is not helpful info, but I have an original 1950's Kenwood Chef which I bought off ebay. It has all the attachments and the original book.

I am so sad because I love it and love using it !

A vote for a Kenwood Chef here. As well as doing the basics, it has lots of different attachments, some more useful than others. I've got the ice cream maker and citrus press attachment and it comes with a liquidiser. I've also got a handheld Braun and I find that's all I need.
