Cake Mixers

Hi all,

I'm looking to buy myself a new cake mixer.

I don't want to spend more than £150 ideally so I know that rules out the Kitchen Aids and Kenwood Chef type mixers.

I've been looking at the Andrew James and the other options on Amazon. I did actually buy an Andrew James mixer last year but found that you had to keep stopping it to scrape the sides of the bowl. With my current one (a Breville) I can do this while it's still going, but it's an old-fashioned one with the two whisks that don't always reach the bottom of the bowl and it's much slower.

Mine also doesn't have a splashguard so putting in icing sugar is a nightmare!

Can anyone suggest a good mixer where it doesn't leave the food up the sides of the bowl and is within my budget. It also needs to have a splashguard.

Thank you!

I just use a hand held Moulinex mixer that I have had for donkey's years along with this spray protector.

I put a cloth over mine when mixing buggering icing sugar, and start real slow.

I have a Kenwood Chef, and while I love it, I still have to stop it to scrape the sides of the bowl, as it doesn't get to the very bottom. And I lost the splashguard in a housemove, so I also have to resort to the tea-towel trick.

I think the main benefit to one of the expensive ones is the motor lasts forever. The usability is pretty much of a muchness, IMO.
