Hi guys i am looking to buy a decent mixer as i only have a hand mixer at the moment and would like to make my own MMF.
I am in the UK could you let me know what model you have and if you would recommend it.
I know the majority of people are from the US on here but i'm sure i could find a similar model.
I would recommend the Kitchenaid mixer. I use it to make mmf but i only do half recipe at a time which yeilds about just over 1lb of mmf.
Depends what your budget is. I only had a budget of around £100 to £150, so I went with the Andrew James Stand mixer from amazon which cost £110. It works great IMO, for the price it's fantastic. The only downside is that the slowest setting isn't that slow but that doesn't cause me any problems because I don't make buttercream with Icing Sugar which can fly around everywhere.
If you have £300-£450 budget you could go with a Kitchen Aid or Kenwood. A lot of people say that the Kitchen Aid is extortionately priced here compared to the US sites when you convert the £/$ costs. And there are a lot of threads on this site which say the newer models of the Kitchen Aids aren't that good.
