Ken­wood Chef Sense, £449.95, John Lewis

I’m a sucker for a pretty ap­pli­ance, so I fell in love with this pas­tel-hued mixer at first sight. It’s easy to wonder whether some­thing with such good looks can live up to the job, but luck­ily this model can. It’s more pow­er­ful than oth­ers, with a 1100W mo­tor, so it whizzes cold but­ter straight from the fridge in sec­onds. It comes with all the usual tools, with the op­tion to buy over 20 more.

Kitchenaid Mini £449.95, John Lewis

As bak­ing queen of the of­fice, I was re­ally ex­cited to test the mini ver­sion of one of the most iconic food mix­ers and I wasn’t dis­ap­pointed! I live in a flat, so this is an ideal size, sit­ting pret­tily in the corner of the kitchen. It comes with a whisk, dough hook and flat beater, and you can also use the at­tach­ments from the larger clas­sic model. I tested it out on a batch of cookie dough and found it re­ally easy to use. The three-litre bowl means you can mix up a lot in one go, too, so you can cook up big batches. amy hodge, Food ed­i­tor

Smeg SMF01 Mixer £299.99, ama­zon

This su­per-stylish model comes in a range of colours and is very sim­ple to use. It feels strong, well made and good qual­ity, and, although it’s sturdy, it’s not too heavy to move around. The at­tach­ments feel first class and are quick to change. It can be used for ev­ery­thing from cakes and pas­tries, to whisk­ing egg whites and mak­ing pasta. The stain­less steel bowl is great as it locks in place eas­ily and the con­trols are on the top so it’s sim­ple to ad­just the speed. I would def­i­nitely rec­om­mend this mixer. ali­son wal­ter, art direc­tor
