Read on for more information on each stand mixer, and get ready to enjoy a whole new world of baked goods. Its celebrated Artisan Series 5-Quart Stand Mixer is a kitchen classic, designed with ten speeds and a powerful motor to easily whip, knead, and mix ingredients.
It features a 300-watt motor and the same planetary mixing rotation as a Kitchen to thoroughly incorporate ingredients into batter and dough. Choose between seven different speeds, including a gentle folding setting; the gadget’s non-slip feet keep the mixer from rocking as it works.
Additionally, the Hamilton Beach comes with a splash guard, dough hook, whisk, and flat beater for a variety of baking projects, and its four-quart stainless steel bowl is dishwasher-safe for easy cleaning. Thousands of shoppers, including hundreds who gave the mixers five stars on Amazon, swear by the appliance’s effectiveness.

If you’re ready for a top-of-the-line mixer for superior baking, Ankarsrum’s Original Kitchen Machine is an excellent choice. Made of incredibly sturdy chrome and steel, the 600-watt mixer is strong enough to mix heavy dough and feasted breads without overheating.
Additionally, the Ankarsrum’s unique motor-in-base design gives several advantages: It keeps the mixer from rocking as it works, makes it much easier to add ingredients to the bowl, and means the machine fits conveniently under overhead cabinets. What’s more, the base turns on its side to transform into a wide variety of other kitchen tools, including a juicer, a blender, a meat grinder, and a pasta maker.
The Ankarsrum Original Kitchen Machine is so popular that it’s earned a noteworthy 4.7-star rating from hundreds of reviewers who say the device is powerful, durable, and high-quality. “After burning up my third Kitchen for home use, mainly bread making, I gave up,” a reviewer who is a professional baker wrote.

For a phenomenal machine that even professional bakers turn to, check out Kitchen’s Commercial Countertop Mixer. Built to hold up to 16 cups of flour, this appliance is big enough to handle even your most substantial projects with ease.
Unlike its Artisan line, Kitchen’s commercial model has a bowl-lift design, where the mixer head remains stationary. You’ll find tons of happy customers who’ve left reviews on Kitchen’s site, including one who said, “I have a cottage baking business and make a lot of products, especially artisan bread, and needed a large capacity mixer that can handle six to eight loaves at a time.
The mighty appliance features a 660-watt motor, a tilt-head design, and even a pouring shield to prevent splatters and messes. Amazon reviewers say the stand mixer is a great size for big baking projects and compliment the machine’s thoughtful design features.

Meanwhile, we’ve highlighted the Russell Hobbs Go Create (£90) as a sub-£100 model, which is a good option for occasional bakers. Advertisement For those keen to multitask, the Bosch Optimum (£625) is an excellent choice due to its blender option and built-in weighing scale.
There are three attachments in the box including a whisk, flat beater and dough hook and a plastic spatula and splash guard. We did need to stop halfway through to coax the ingredients around edges back into the bowl, but this wasn’t a huge problem.
With its rather handsome, polished stainless steel body, the Kenwood Chef XL (£700) comes with a powerful 1,700W motor. In the box there's three stainless-steel attachments including a dough hook, whisk and K-beater, plus a creaming beater and fold tool to create particularly light mixes.
You also have the option to add to the base design with up to 20 attachments for tasks such as blending, cutting pasta and mincing meat. When we used the cream beater to mix the caster sugar and butter, we were surprised at how quiet the operation was, particularly as this is the most powerful mixer in our test.
The body feels robust and satisfyingly secure on the worktop too, with only a slight vibration while in use on a high-speed setting, compared to other designs we’ve tried. While the Kenwood comes with a splash guard, the ‘soft start’ speed dial works well to ensure ingredients doesn’t come flying out of the bowl when it initially gets turned on.
We simply poured the ingredients into the bowl and measurements were shown on the LED display, which is positioned neatly on the front of the mixer. Another useful feature on this design is the Smart Dough sensor, which ensures a constant mixing speed and comes in useful when you’re kneading a large quantity.
