I’ve long talked about getting a KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer, but only when I turn professional. Whilst I’m still clearly an amateur in the kitchen, my trusty £3.99 handheld mixer from Tesco has suffered an unfortunate demise after a recent run in the dishwasher. I mourn its premature death, really; even though it is not something a serious baker would use, my dear Tesco mixer has done a lot for me. Just look at all the goodies that have come out of my kitchen under the care of this humble mixer! Since I can’t bake without a mixer (well, I don’t have arms of steel…), and the baking itch is starting to get to me, I’m agonising over two things now.
1. Should I get another handheld mixer from Tesco? Or should I get a KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer, prematurely so?
2. If I get the KitchenAid (oh my gooooooodness, I’m so excited!!!!), which colour should I get? Should I get safe colours such as Almond Cream and Onyx Black, so I wouldn’t have a problem matching it to my future kitchen when we move back to Singapore? Or should I go for something whimsical and pretty – Pink Charity or Cranberry, and design my future kitchen around it? Or should I go for something bold – Empire Red or Candy Apple? If I get the colourful ones, will it matter if my kitchen doesn’t ‘match’ since it’s a KitchenAid and it will look sexy even in a toilet anyway. or am I kidding myself?
HELP! Leave a comment and let me know your answers to Questions 1 and 2!
