Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

QWhat is a 'pulse function'?
APulse turns the mixer on for very short periods at full power, allowing you to make the finishing touches to mixes, or blend stubborn parts of a mixture.
QWhat are common accessories for mixers?
AMixers may come with any or all of these standard attachments: a kneading tool for dough, a set of whisks or beaters, a citrus pressing tool, a tool for mincing meat, or a pasta maker.
QWhy do some mixers not have an entry for speeds?
ASome mixers don't have set speed levels (low, medium, high, etc) but instead a knob to gradually increase the speed from low to very high.

Mixer Buying Guide

Mixers are kitchen appliances that use a motor powered whisk or paddle to effortlessly mix and combine ingredients. They are used primarily for making cake batter, bread dough, pasty and desserts. Unlike blenders or food processors, they are not designed to cut or puree ingredients, but instead to whisk or knead far quickly and more efficiently than any human could. If you’ve ever felt your arms hurt from trying to whisk up homemade mayonnaise, then this is the appliance for you!

There are two main types of mixers on the market - handheld and stand mixers:

loading image

Handheld mixers: these devices consist of one or two whisks placed into a plastic or metal casing, with a button or trigger to activate them. The whisks can be immersed in the ingredients, and the whisks will mix far more efficiently than if done by hand. Handheld mixers are smaller and far cheaper than stand mixers, but are less powerful than their larger brethren. Also most handheld mixers only use whisk attachments - this is fine for most baking and kitchen prep tasks you’ll need, but won’t work for making bread dough or kneading.

Stand mixers: these mixers consist of motor-powered whisks, which are built into an arm and stand, allowing the whisks to be lowered into the attached bowl for mixing. They are far heavier machines, and much more expensive than handheld mixers, but are far more powerful and capable of a larger range of functions, such as kneading dough. Because they are heavy, stable machines they are far less likely to make a mess while mixing at high speeds, though of course this means they also take up a sizeable space on your kitchen work surface. However if you find yourself baking cakes or bread regularly, a proper stand mixer will save you countless hours of manual mixing and kneading!

loading image

Capacity

This attribute only applies to tabletop mixers, but is an important consideration - the bowl capacity will determine how much food/ingredients can be mixed at one time. The tabletop mixers on our site range from small 0.5L mixers (which would be most useful for sauces and small batters, such as cupcakes or muffins) to enormous 5L mixers (which will handle everything you could need, including the biggest cakes or bread dough enough for several loaves at once).

loading image

Power Levels/Speeds

All our mixers have a power rating, measured in Watts (W). The higher the power level, the more efficient the appliances will be at mixing and kneading. This in turn leads to smoother mixes, well-kneaded doughs, and better results!

Many of the models on our site also have multiple speed settings. This is important because different recipes require different speeds - making mayonnaise for instance requires a fairly slow speed, while cake batter can be mixed at a faster speed. The instruction manual with your machine will give better information on the specific speed to use for each type of cooking.

Included Accessories

Finally, many models of mixer come with additional accessories to increase the functions performed by the appliance. This can include dough hooks for more efficient kneading of bread dough, beaters specifically made for eggs, or a spatula for scraping out batter and dough from the bowl. They may also include chopper attachment for easily chopping small quantities of nuts, herbs or fruit.

While not necessities, these extras can make your cooking more efficient and easier, so are worth bearing in mind when choosing between models.

Sage mixers range in price from £169 to £300, and the third highest average mixer price out of all brands is Sage mixers with an average price of £236.

Mixer Brands - Average Ratings

We have analysed 10 expert reviews and 6,956 user reviews for mixers available online and used this data to calculate the average rating for each brand of mixer. The top three mixer brands are KitchenAid, Kenwood and Bosch. KitchenAid has an average rating of 92%, Kenwood has an average rating of 90% and Bosch has an average rating of 73%.

Biggest Mixer Retailers

The biggest mixer retailer by number of products currently for sale is eBay. We found 219 current mixer offers from eBay. The second biggest retailer is Amazon UK with 136 offers. That means eBay is much bigger than Amazon UK when it comes to mixers. Currys is the third biggest retailer with 46 current offers.

When Are Most New Mixers Released?

Most new mixers tend to be released between November and December. If you wait until November 2018 then you might be able to get better features on your mixer. It's also worth keeping in mind that the price of the current mixers tend to drop off when the next models are released. In November 2017 25 new mixers were released making it the biggest month that year for new mixer releases. 46 new mixers were released in December 2016 making it the biggest month that year for new mixer releases. The biggest month in 2015 for new mixer releases was March, with 21 new mixers released that month.

How Fast Do Mixer Prices Drop After Release?

New mixers drop in price by an average of 4% in the first 6 months after they wer first released. That means a saving of £4 on a typical £120 new mixer if you wait 6 months before buying.

Available Colours

We found 118 mixers that are mixers that have a White coloured, which makes White the most popular colour amongst new mixers. The second most common colour amongst new mixers is black. We found 54 mixers that are mixers that have a black coloured.

Powers

'Power' represents the power level of the mixer, measured in watts.

Across the range of mixers, the powers range from 65W to 2,000W. The powers of the majority of mixers range from 200W to 350W. The Swan SP32010, which is priced at £169.00, has the biggest power and is a 1,500W mixer. The mixer with the smallest power is the Panasonic MK-H4, which is an 80W mixer and currently retails for £76.91.

A larger power level means that the motor in the mixer is more powerful, leading to faster and more efficient mixing.

Bowl Capacities

'Bowl Capacity' measures how much can fit in the mixer's bowl, measured in litres.

The bowl capacities of mixers range from 0.45L to 6.9L. The bowl capacities of the majority of mixers range from 4.5L to 5L. The KitchenAid 5KSM7580, which is available at £599.00, has the biggest bowl capacity and is a 6.9L capacity mixer. The mixer with the smallest bowl capacity is the Braun HM 3135 WH, which is a .5L capacity mixer and is available at £52.31.

A bigger capacity means that you can mix more ingredients at once, making it easier to cook large amount of food.

Types

The type of the mixer denotes whether it has it's own dedicated bowl (a 'stand mixer') or whether it is just the mixing unit (a 'hand mixer').

Stand mixer is the most frequently found type amongst new mixers. We found 127 mixers that are stand mixer mixers. We found 116 mixers that are hand mixer mixers, making this the second most popular type amongst new mixers.

Speed Levels

The number of speed levels the mixer is capable of mixing at.

The speed levels of mixers range from 1 to 16. The speed levels of the majority of mixers range from 5 to 7. The mixer with the most speed level is the Nesco HM-350, which is a 16 speed level mixer and is on sale for £32.02. The Elgento E12004, which is available at £23.99, has the least speed level and is a 1 speed level mixer.

More speeds on your mixer mean that is it more versatile, and can handle ingredients that require slow, gentle mixing as well as those that require fast, vigorous blending.

Which Are the Cheapest Retailers for Mixers?

The chart below helps you decide which retailer is normally cheapest for buying mixers. For each retailer it shows the total number of mixers where they currently have a market leading price. The chart below helps you decide which retailer is normally cheapest for buying mixers. For each retailer we took all of their prices and looked at what proportion of those prices where the cheapest on the market.

Proportion of Mixers for Which Each Retailer is Cheapest?

Assessing how cheap each retailer is for mixers by counting the number of cheapest prices for that retailer, makes the retailers that offer the greatest number of mixer prices more likely to offer the greatest number of cheapest prices. The chart below considers the proportion of each retailer's mixer prices that are the cheapest compared to other retailers. The cheapest retailer that we found using this approach was eBay. 67.1% of their mixer prices were the cheapest that could be found anywhere.
