So while we were in David Jones and Myer, the SO dragged me to have a closer look at the mixers available. There were so many options that boggle the mind, but it's really the shininess that's so distracting.
After an hour or so of um-ing and err-ing, we finally came home with our very own stand mixer!
It's the Breville Wizz Planetary Mixer in red! Its RRP $549.95, but we got it for $444 after the Myer every-$75-get-$14-off (a total discount of $105).
And in typical infomercial style, THERE'S MORE!!!
That includes a Freeze and Mix kit (RRP $99.95) to make ice-cream/gelato and a copy of Luke Mangan at home and in the mood (USD$25.55).
How could we say no?
And the first thing I made with the mixer: a marbled sponge cake. I followed the recipe that came with the mixer and while the resulting cake was more like wet sand (definitely not my best cake attempt), I'm still thrilled I never have to whinge about mixing dough ever again.
