Igenix IG8702 Die Cast Food Stand Mixer Dough Blender Mixing Bowl : A really good high quality mixer to use at home to make cakes/bread

This arrived well packaged and in pristine condition. As soon as we took it out of the box, this felt like a solid quality item that will last. Once unpacked it is very easy to use. It comes with a whisk, dough hook and beater. The bowl is a good size (5l) with a splash protector. The mixer worked really well, mixing some quite ‘heavy’ cake ingredients over a fair period of time. This isn’t a light weight mixer – but it is a work horse and looks as if it will mix many cakes etc. If you are looking for a ‘strong’ mixer, then this is difficult to fault.

This is a very solid piece of kitchen equipment. I was a little surprised at the short time limits given per operation, but in practice, it was long enough. I put my order in for a victoria sponge sandwich cake the day it arrived, and it is so easy to use, my wife is now an enthusiastic cake and scone maker. The instructions and controls are clear. It would have been nice to have had a few recipes included, but a mary berry book sorted that out. The power lead is long enough and of stout quality.

Igenix ig8702 die cast stand mixer, 5 litre, 1000 w, matt greyi’m typing this review with a cake and some muffins baking in the oven while watching great british bake off on the telly, having just tested my first stand mixer. I am known as a cook who uses practically every dish and bowl in the kitchen and the main thing i notice from using a stand mixer for the first time is that i’ve only used two bowls, the stand mixer bowl and one more, so at the very least this mixer means i’ve created less washing upfirst impressions were that this is a heavy piece of kit: delivered to the door by a young man with enormous muscly arms, i soon discovered how heavy it was when he handed me the box and it rapidly descended to the floor as soon as i took it with my weedy arms, bowed under the unexpected weigh. This means this is definitely a piece of kit that i will not be getting in and out of the cupboard but leaving on the side – so if you have a small kitchen you’ll need to think whether there is space for a stand mixer on the side or whether you want to be hefting it in and out of the cupboard every time you use it. The mixer comes with a very brief information leaflet covering everything you need to know – which isn’t very much, because it’s a pretty simple piece of kit. It creamed my butter and sugar together well and mixed the rest of the cake too. I’ve also used it mix bread mix then knead it to make wholemeal rolls, though haven’t yet used it for whisking. I did find there was a bit of a problem when using the bread hook in that the dough seemed to collect in a vertical blob with only the bottom part being kneaded and the top part just sort of rolling around. Perhaps there’s a technique to keeping it in the bowl and i did stop the motor and push the dough back down into the bottom of the bowl a couple of times. So this meant that, while i saved energy by not having to knead the dough myself for the requisite 10 minutes, i couldn’t just walk off and leave the stand mixer to itself: i had to monitor and adjust it. The stand mixer has a powerful 1000 watt motor with 8 different speeds.

Igenix ig8702 die cast stand mixer, 5 litre, 1000 w, matt greythe mixer is of a quality construction and looks pretty good in the kitchen. Its a machine that is designed for making quality cakes and loafs etc. You can be sure that the ingredients you set up for making cakes etc are completed in a very timely and efficient manner with minimum of fuss and fatigue. The mixer has variable settings for speed, you get a proper dough blade for mixing. How good is that, its awesome. You get a rim lid that means at faster speeds there is no splatter coming outside of the bowl and pour in scoop to add ingredients. The mixer does allow for more efficient usage and minimises the necessity of bowls and tools, i thought this made the mixing of ingredient much less of a chore and overall really, really easy. The mixer will have more pride of place over our current food processor as we find that we will be making much greater usage of this. I made a sweet load yesterday with some live yeast and surprisingly it was a success. The advantages over hand held mixer are numerous, no splatter, this mixer set up and ready to go, ease of use, efficiency, assured good results every time.

The style of the mixer and the look of it is great,very stylish. However the only downside to this is its heavy and because the bowl doesn’t move round when mixing the ingredients seems to gather around the edges and i was mixing more than the machine was doing so did not like this at all really. Has a very powerful speed when on high. Make sure you don’t have greasy hands when trying to change the speed your hand just slips away and doesn’t turn found it quite small. If the bowl had moved i would have kept this as it is a nice powerful mixer.

This is a nice big food mixer that’s sturdy and made wellits a 1000w powerful motor die cast stand mixer with 5l brushed stainless steel bowl with splash guardit has an advanced electronic on/off speed control button dial with 8 speedsit contains three teflon coated mixing tool attachments1. A whiskthe beater is used for mixing cakes , pastry and creaming butter with ingredientsthe dough hook is designed to kneed doughand the whisk for whisking eggs and creamit has non slip feet for extra stabilitythe mixer head can be lifted and lowered by the mixer head release leveralso the splash guard has an opening for adding ingredients while the mixer is workingthis is a joy to use and works well with any of the mixing tools and does the joba must have in the kitchen.

It is sturdy and well built. It is fairly heavy but not excessively so. There aren’t too many instructions but you can figure out how to use it quite quickly. I haven’t used any new mixers for a while so i can’t really compare it to any of it’s competitors. This does save time and mess and it is much easier than using hand blenders if you have a lot of mixing to do. This does have a few options and different settings so you might have to do some experimentation. It can get a little loud but then that should be expected.

I am not much of a baker and often prefer to do things by hand rather than use expensive kit that is hard to clean. I have, however, been toying with the idea of getting one of these mixers since every tv chef seems to need one. I think this item is excellent value. You can spend twice as much for a very similar product. It is sturdy and very easy to use. I was impressed that it comes with all the relevant accessories, including a dough hook. I also like the many speed settings available. A welcome change from the usual high, medium, low. I haven’t used it much but it has coped well.

As far as i am concerned, a food mixer is a food mixer is a food mixer. However, as far as my wife is concerned there are food mixers and then there are food mixers. For her (and thus for me), this falls into the latter category. The igenix die cast mixer looks and feels of really good quality. As one would expect from something that is die-cast, it is metallic throughout ,and really chunky and solid. It looks as if it will be hard to break – although i wouldn’t like to accidentally drop it on my foot whilst moving it around. To use, it’s a literally a case of taking out the box, unwrapping, plugging in, and off you go. The bowl is a substantial thing, and to fit it under the mixer you have to raise the top of the mixer itself. This also allows you to fit the required mixing blade (there’s a dough-hook, a beater and a whisk). These are easy to fit and replace.
