Russell Hobbs Desire Kitchen Machine Mixer 20350, Not worth the money

Stand Mixers
1

For me this is a difficult item to review. It looks great, has a nice feel to it and did everything i wanted to a satisfactory level. However, it does have its downfalls, mainly being the noise when you use it. The excess vibrating i can deal with, but for a brand new and never used machine, it sounds like something that’s on its last legs. Obviously you will have a guarantee, but no one buys something hoping that it will go wrong as they have that insurance, and i’m not convinced this will withstand a lot of use. Unlike others, i’ve had no issues with having to scrape mixture off the side of the bowl. I can’t fault anything the machine does, but my liking towards it is swayed more by the appearance of it rather than the capabilities to do the job. This would be ideal as a machine used now and again, but i’m unconvinced how long it would last so a slightly more costly alternative would probably be the route i would choose.

As still not used it but like the search of it.

Russell Hobbs Desire Kitchen Machine Mixer 20350, 4.5 L, 700 W – Black and Red

  • Planetary mixing action with 700 W of power
  • Whole plastic housing with metal gear system and pop-up head lift
  • Variable five speed and pulse function
  • Large 4.5 L st/steel bowl and non Slip feet
  • Three mixing attachments: (beater, dough hook, whisk)

Beautiful, but falls brief. . When this is stunning machine that would search attractive in any kitchen and does just what a mixer is essential to do, it disappoints a little. For my baking, the biggest peeve is needing to continuously halt the machine to use a spatula on the sides of the bowl. The paddle/whisk tends to depart a ton of mixture clinging to the aspect of the bowl and compared with some others i have tried out (andrew james/kenwood/kitchen assist) the combination tends to arrive out a minor uneven with bits of unmixed flour popping up needing a large amount of examining. The manage is very straight ahead contrary to a large amount of the newer styles which include electronic timers, variation velocity attributes and unique modes of spinning/hook motion. All you have listed here is a lock and eight variants on velocity. Very simple and straightforward to appear to grips with for somebody who does not want difficult technology that necessitates a ton of instruction manuals and mistakes to master from. Will come with the simple lavatory normal attachments, whisk (fantastic for beating product or building clean batters), dough hook (critical for building bread or pastry) and a paddle which is terrific for managing matters like cake batter or cookie dough. For a starter mixer, this is pretty decent despite the fact that it is a bit pricy. For the very same cost i would counsel skipping this one particular and likely with anything like the a thousand/1500 watt andrew james types which appear with a 5.

An introductory degree machine. Having now experienced a opportunity to test this with a assortment of bakes, i think i am harmless to say that this is not heading to be a machine for the dedicated baker. It is correctly serviceable for another person who wants a thing that appears pretty good and will assist them make the occasional batch of buttercream. It has to be explained that the beater is not superior at reaching all parts of the bowl – this means you have to halt it frequently to scrape down. Not a massive effort and hard work – but however additional work. With heavier mixes (like a bread dough) the machine does vibrate and rock really a whole lot – which just isn’t a big concern once more but not perfect. This is alright as much as it goes – but i you should not have self-assurance that it will very last for the very long phrase. It is trendy, it is serviceable – but it is not a match for a kenwood or a kitchenaid substitute.

It lacks a bit of speed but it unquestionably serves it is objective for my demands. It is straightforward to clear and stays place on the get the job done surface owing to the rubber feet beneath it.

Russell Hobbs Desire Kitchen Machine Mixer 20350, 4.5 L, 700 W – Black and Red : Bought this as a xmas extra for my 11 year old grand daughter, she wouldn’t be without it, her mother loves it too, they often bake together.

A serviceable but entry level mixer. It’s a stylish beast to be sure and looks good on the countertop but it’s not designed or built for the dedicated baker. The mixing action doesn’t reach the bottom/sides of the bowl which requires manual intervention with a spoon now and then. If you are using it to mix something thick or heaven forbid, dough the machine vibrates and strains and even wobbles around the countertop a bit. It’ll do for the odd cake but if you have ambitions to bake often this probably isn’t the best machine out there, it’s also quite large which may be of concern to those with limited space.

At the time of writing, this machine is selling on amazon for £109. It’s actual retail price is £149. For £119 you could buy a kenwood prospero, or for £149, in my local sainsburys, they had a proper kenwood chef km330. There are loads of other stand mixers on amazon that offer much better value for money, and judging by the reviews, do a better job. This machine is mainly plastic, and because of this, does not have the stability necessary when being used at any speed higher than. To overcome this, it has suckers on the bottom to hold it in place and stop it working itself off the edge of the worktop. Russell hobbs call these non-slip feet. The head of the machine lifts up so that you can put the bowl on the base, but the hinge does not look very strong, and sounds as though it is grating on something. There is a splash guard which you can add to the bowl, and has a useful spout so that you can add ingredients when it is running.

An introductory level machine. Having now had a chance to test this with a range of bakes, i think i am safe to say that this is not going to be a machine for the dedicated baker. It is perfectly serviceable for someone who wants something that looks quite decent and will help them make the occasional batch of buttercream. It has to be said that the beater is not good at reaching all parts of the bowl – meaning you have to stop it frequently to scrape down. Not a huge effort – but still extra work. With heavier mixes (like a bread dough) the machine does vibrate and rock quite a lot – which isn’t a huge issue again but not ideal. This is ok as far as it goes – but i don’t have confidence that it will last for the long term. It is stylish, it is serviceable – but it is not a match for a kenwood or a kitchenaid alternative.

This is a really nice looking machine. The suckers at the bottom help keep it securely in place. The attachments are the standard kbeater type that is used for mixing cake batter etc. The balloon whisk for egg whites etc and the dough hook. Kbeater & dough hook are cast sprayed aluminium and the balloon whisk is stainless steel and cast aluminium. I always love the stainless bowls on any mixer. Yes it is noisy but then i find all these types are. I tend to put a few tea towels underneath to minimise the noise. And alike all the other type of mixers like this the beaters never reach the bottom, so they give you a spatula to help with the scraping of the ingredients.

Beautiful, but falls short. . While this is beautiful machine that would look stylish in any kitchen and does exactly what a mixer is required to do, it disappoints slightly. For my baking, the biggest peeve is needing to constantly halt the machine to use a spatula on the sides of the bowl. The paddle/whisk tends to leave a lot of mixture clinging to the side of the bowl and unlike others i’ve tried (andrew james/kenwood/kitchen aid) the mixture tends to come out a little uneven with bits of unmixed flour popping up needing a lot of checking. The control is very straight forward unlike a lot of the newer models which add digital timers, variation speed features and different modes of spinning/hook movement. All you have here is a lock and eight variations on speed. Simple and easy to come to grips with for someone who doesn’t want complicated technology that requires a lot of instruction manuals and mistakes to learn from. Comes with the basic bog standard attachments, whisk (great for beating cream or making smooth batters), dough hook (essential for making bread or pastry) and a paddle which is great for handling things like cake batter or cookie dough. For a starter mixer, this is pretty decent although it is a bit pricy. For the same price i’d suggest skipping this one and going with something like the 1000/1500 watt andrew james models which come with a 5.

Throughout the years i have tested many mixers but this is the first russell hobbs one i have tried. First off this is a cheap mixer (£99 at time of writing) – do not compare it to more expensive ones as that is an unfair comparison. The mixer doesn’t look cheap and the parts feel fairly sturdy. It is noisy in operation but the speed control is quite nice to use. It also comes with a splash guard which helps keep the mess in the bowlthe mixing action is not the best but like i have mentioned already, in this price bracket you rarely get perfection. This does require a lot of bowl scraping regardless of which bowl tool you use. There is a reasonable amount at the bottom which the mixer cannot get to. The dough hook works much better as the dough picks up all the stray ingredients in the bowl. The mixer does sound a bit strained when kneading but it doesn’t move around the worktop like some others do.

Wahl James Martin Stand Mixer, Basic mixer which does the job

Cheap and looks and feels it. Nothing like the quality of even a modern kenwood. The shiny black finish is soft and marks easily, and although this machine produces a perfectly good cake, it just isn’t a pleasure to use. Good entry level stand mixer for the occasional baker. If …
