Anyone else fall in love with baking this year? Yes, I know I could have been jumping around with Joe Wicks every morning but watching him sweat it out with a coffee and slice of cake was just as fun.
The KitchenAid Artisan Tilt-Head Stand Mixer will be the best friend to cooks, bakers and chefs alike, this mixer comes in three sizes, small, medium and large and we will be taking a closer look at the medium version. These mixers come in a huge selection of colours (31 to be precise) ranging from subtle to bold and attention seeking, we were lucky enough to receive KitchenAid’s Colour of the Year, Kyoto Glow, combining a unique but balanced look. This stand mixer uses a direct-drive motor with efficient wattage to power conversion straight into the bowl, the robust design is strong enough to handle even the toughest mixes. Constructed from solid zinc metal it is built to last a lifetime and more and comes with a five-year guarantee. The Medium mixer comes with a 4.8L stainless steel bowl, 3L stainless steel bowl, transparent pouring shield, six wire whisk, dough hook and flat beater ensuring this mixer is ready for anything from bread and cakes, to whipping cream and mashing potatoes.
The attachments can all go in the dishwasher which means less time cleaning and more time enjoying your food. The medium mixer can take on both small and large batches, with the ability to process up to 12 eggs, 1l of whipped cream, in baking terms this will give you a 2.7kg cake or 9 dozen cookies. The stand mixer was the original home stand mixer with the unique ‘planetary action’, this allows the beater to spiral to at least 59 touchpoints around the bowl for a fast and thorough mix. The speed can be adjusted via the control lever from a gentle stir at level 1 up, beating at 6 and fast whipping at level 10. The tilt head makes it easy to access the bowl without making a mess, the single multipurpose attachment hub on the head opens the mixer to a wide range of uses? from a spiralizer to a pasta roller, ice cream maker or food grinder. This mixer will become your sous chef, it’s strong, consistent, reliable and versatile. At the end of the day it is easy to clean and will sit pretty on your work top ready for the next culinary adventure. RRP £599
