Well I've decided to get rid of my very basic hand mixer and invest in a standing mixer. I've been looking and there are just so many, I can't decide which one I should go for. I'm looking for a decent mid-range one, I don't want something super cheap and I really can't afford to be spending £600+ on one either. Any recommendations would be great!

I want to buy the Cuisinart 7 quart. Here is a link to it. I do have a KA and love it. I just want something with a bigger bowl and more power.

You cant go wrong with a 6 qt Kitchenaide! I love mine. I have a 5 qt also. I even just had KA replace a accessory that was 2 months over the warranty.

KA Professional 6qt would be my rec. I have two of them, and they are workhorses. I'd just say get the biggest/best you can afford. Even if you don't always need a big powerful mixer, it's worth it's weight in gold for the times you DO need it. Also, if you can afford it, I'd say get an extra bowl. It's also great to have when you need it.

I'm in the UK and recently bought a Kenwood Chef 560is was about £225 on Amazon... I'm really happy with it, It's not as pretty as the KitchenAid but does the job perfectly
