I'm looking to buy a stand mixer, with a budget of £200. Any ideas on which is best?

Thanks :)

KitchenAid! They can be expensive but if you find them on sale or as a display model then jump on it. I absolutely love mine. I got the display model and paid about $180 for it, including the extended warranty.

You could pick up a brand new Kenwood for less than £200 - don't go for the fancy silver models, the performance is exactly the same.  There's a KM330 on Ebay for £160.

 

I've never used a Kitchen Aid - been a Kenwood girl all my life.  I wanted another, cheapie mixer and bought an Andrew James one recently - yes, it was cheap but you get what you pay for - I wish I hadn't wasted my money.  It's noisy and the beaters do not touch the bottom or sides of the bowl - there is no means of adjustment either. 

 

I'm currently collecting old models of Kenwood for hubby to refurbish as I'm starting to teach baking and cake decorating - I wouldn't dream of using anything other than a Kenwood for the job.
