I have had a very busy run up to Christmas, with lots of cooking and baking. I made cupcakes for children in need, followed by red velvet birthday cake, an almond and cherry cake for a tea party, lemon drizzle cake and snowflake shortbread for my work Christmas table and also some lovely chocolate biscuit puddings and Christmas cupcakes for our Christmas meal dessert. Baking can be very therapeutic but its hard work creaming and mixing all the ingredients, that’s when you wish you had a helper.
My helper came in the form of VonChef 1200w stand mixer from Domu. It is a stylish and sleek mixer in a contemporary silver design with 6 choices of speed and an extra Pulse function. It is able to whisk, mix and knead ingredients into a perfect dough or batter mix in minutes with the help of chrome flat Beater, kneading dough hook and a balloon whisk. The mixer is a good size as it comes with a 5.5 litre dishwasher safe stainless steel bowl with a splash guard to stop that flurry of icing sugar or flour drowning you.
Assembling and using the VonShef was simple as there is only one dial to turn. The attachments click in and out fairly easily. The splash guard is a godsend but only drawback with it is that you have to feed the whisk or other attachment first through the opening of the guard before clicking the attachment in place and its little bit fiddly. Cleaning the attachments is simple and the bowl is dishwasher safe too. I love my VonShef and I must say that its certainly came at the right time and has proved to my best friend in the kitchen when it comes to baking. If you wish to purchase your own VonShef , it retails at £ 77.99 and comes with all the attachments and a lovely recipe book to get you baking straight away.
I would like to thank Domu for sending me my kitchen helper, all the views and opinions in this post are my own and unbiased
