OK, it’s not on the cheap side, but KitchenAid mixers have long held gravitas in the world of baking, having made many a star appearance on shows like The Great British Bake Off.

It comes complete with a variety of attachments including a flat beater, dough hook and six-wire whip and pouring shield. As well as the stainless steel 4.8L bowl, there’s a handy 3L bowl that’s ideal for preparing smaller batches and sits inside the larger one for easy storage.

If you feel like getting even more adventurous in the kitchen, the KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer has 15 optional accessories, including tools for making fresh pasta and a transparent pouring shield, so you can add ingredients without splashing but still have a clear view of what’s going on in the bowl. Slicing, chopping, grating, peeling, juicing and spiralising – it’s all at your fingertips!

With all this extra time at home, there’s no better time to experiment.
