Out Goes The Old, In Comes The New

This is my little faithful helper, Khind which I bought when I first started working in 2007. For a RM79 stand mixer, I was surprised that it actually lasted for 5 years. Since a year ago, it started to show signs of fatigue as the motor is getting too weak to do any decent mixing/creaming and it took really long to achieve the desired end result. So, it’s a valid excuse for me to get a new one. Yay!

Mr. D and I were discussing what brand and model to get. Of course KitchenAid is the first name that came into my mind. Well, actually I was very adamant on getting it and was planning to get it shipped from US. However, it didn’t go as planned. Mr. D researched a few models from Sunbeam, Breville, Kenwood and compared their specs. Interestingly enough, he found that KitchenAid stand mixer has the lowest mixing power, only 300 watts. I was actually surprised when he told me that. So, in the end after much deliberations, we opted for Breville’s BEM410R model, sleek & sexy red. We were lucky as Harris Scarfe had a sale on that day and we bought it (including a bonus ice-cream bowl) for $264. Happy me!

So, what about you? How do you go about choosing your kitchen appliances? Do you look for the specs or the brands?
