Needing a new cake mixer. What is a good middle of the range one. Looking at either a Kenwood classic chef mixer or perhaps a sunbeam. Any suggestions would be appreciated thanks.

I have a kenwood, and it works really well. I got the chef major and it can do everything I want it to do, including making large cakes and bread etc.

IMO you cant go pass a kenwood mine has just died it was a wedding pressie 48 years ago cant ask for better than that.

I can go one better. Using my Mum's Sunbeam, its from the 1950's and still works perfectly.

If the Kenwood Classic you intend to purchase is made in CHINA give it a wide berth. It will not last like the old NZ Australian, or UK manufactured Kenwoods do. Better to buy a secondhand NZ AU UK model off Trademe.!

We have a Breville Scraper mixer ( the $200 odd one, not the $700) had it 3 years so far, love it, and crikey, do we use it!

Thanks I just noticed other threads on the same topic - didn't think to look first. The Breville scraper seems to be a quite popular choice and it is one of three I have narrowed it down to.

Absolutely right. Kenwood A700 for me from Trademe and it goes so well.
