If you have even the faintest interest in baking, you'll need a stand mixer on your worktop. It will tackle the hard slog of kneading dough, blending cake mix or whipping buttercream icing. This particular model has what's called a 'planetary action', which means it turns in ovals, not full circles, making sure everything is blended evenly and mix doesn't stick to the sides – bad luck bowl lickers!

Three tools are included – a flat beater for cake batters, a dough hook for, erm, dough, and a whisk for beating eggs and cream. It also has ten speed settings, giving you full control over every baking task. Use a low setting for kneading bread or pizza dough or folding delicate cake mixtures, and the highest speeds for whipping up meringues.

Ignore the description on the site as this mixer comes with a 4.83ltr bowl (AO lists it as 2.7ltrs). That's enough to hold 2kg of dough or 2.7kg of cake mix. As the bowl is made from metal, you can pop it in the fridge beforehand it will stay chilled

You can fit the bowl with a protective splashguard, which makes it safe to add ingredients while the mixer is in motion. If you've ever had a face full of flour or a worktop sprayed with icing sugar, you'll know how crucial this can be.

Forget 'on your marks, get set, bake.' This is a case of 'on your marks, get set, BUY!'
