Better to get a model that mixing bowls come with a handle/ear. Easier to hold the mixing bowl during pouring batter into the baking tins.

I'm using a cheap Philips model. But I have heard from friends is that with KitchenAid, there are 'blindspots' that the mixing handle can't reach. Meaning you need to stop the machine and use a spatula to scrape down the sides and bottom. Recently I have been watching a lot of youtube videos on baking, I do notice most of the KitchenAid users do that. Then I came across a youtuber who is using Kenwood KMix, does not scrape down the sides. I thought it was due to the way she edited the videos. But I googled, apparently Kenwood KMix is better in that sense, no blindspots. Apparently, Kenwood's 'engine' is more powerful.

For my Kenwood, I need to adjust the screw so that the mixer can reach the bottom. Still need to scrape down the bowl. Edit to add: mine is older model, unlike the newer KMix.

Engine powerful also siong leh - easily overmixed :wink:

Ahh I see! Good point you have made there about easily overmixing!
