I have one of these mixers already and it's great just ordered one for my mum for Christmas. It gets fab reviews on amazon.

And free postage thanks

wish id got this instead of the morphy richards one as the AJ comes with flexible beater to reach sides of the bowl

Might just have to buy one for my Mum.

I have one of these and got one for my mum too. great mixer!

@those who have one, can you store all the tools in the bowl when not using? Thanks

You you can


thank you for answering

Not good for heavy duty mixing I bought one last year and motor burnt out after about 3 goes at making bread.
No problems getting refund though.
If you are serious about using one on a regular basis then defo pay more I bought a kenwood which I am so much more happy with.

My friend bought one last year, and is really pleased with it, until the balloon whisk broke. The only problem is that that is no replacements were you can buy. Even on the website they do not do the spares, unless you email them.

Second-hand Kenwood Chef as a collect only on Ebay or Gumtree is a much better bet if you're serious about baking. Buy a Kenwood from when they were still made in the UK and bulletproof. There are spares, repair people and they just go and go. Get lucky and you might get one only used once or twice since the wedding day. I paid £60 for an A701A and got the glass liquidiser, chopper and mincer and a few other attachments. Buy a cheap mixer and if you use it much the motor will burn out, the plastic gearing will shred and you won't be able to find cost-effective parts. Nice retro looks too.

AJNEWs01 doesn't work, any ideas what I'm doing wrong

Looks good ( like the side scrapper blade) -
none left in cream
Appears no attachment slot on front for things like mincers

I don't trust Amazon reviews, I know what has happened when I've tried to post negative Amazon reviews, and I have heard of people having problems with not being able to obtain spares for this particular product.

I've had the bigger version of this for over 2 years, I make a lot of cakes and they've never been as light as with this. Fab machines!

Bought one for my daughter a couple of years back and it's still going strong despite hard use.
Thoroughly recommended.

Great for the occasional use. Wife has been using it on and off throughout the year and we've never had a problem. Just to note though the utensils are not dishwasher safe. Found that one out the hard way!

I bought one of these last year to make dough in but when using the kneading tool even with a 750g ball the moving around of the ball was enough to persistently cause the locking latch to unlock and switch off.
Given that kneading is a 20 minute process on low speed I never used the machine again.
Am not saying it is a bad brand compared to others, or that it isn't any good for cake mixes and less solid items rather that if you are intending to make dough and items which cause the mixer a lot of strain you may need to budget for something better, although they aren't cheap are they!?. Incidentally I ended up using my morphy richards bread machine on dough settings which actually gave better results anyway and was a darn site less messy to deal with.

I discovered that too with the beater and the chrome finish came off. However I put it in the dishwasher again and all of it came off so I didn't end up with bits in the cake, it doesn't rust so I still use it. I was gutted when I did it though.

If you are a regular baker then don't bother. A very noisy machine sounds like a plane taking off when you use it on high speed. The motor burnt out after a few uses of making bread. Company would not refund it even though it was under warranty and only fixed it. They then sent it back with a note saying that it could only be used for 4 minutes at a time on high speed and then should be allow to cool down for 20mins!
When I tried to explain to them that their own recipe book says Bread or Meringue take upto 8 mins on high speed that the machine was then not fit for its purpose they were not interested in any problems.
Utensils are supposed to be stainless steel but they go black in the dishwasher and then leave black on your food when you use them again.
Terrible machine, Terrible company. Would never buy from them again. Better to spend a bit more and have kenwood.

I am happy when I find a good deal as well

This machine makes a noise like a train, but that's it's only failing in my book. On average, it is used three or four days a week. I think that's pretty serious usage. It makes 600g-700g of shortcrust twice a week. In the run-up to Christmas, it has been in constant use turning out pastry for dozens and dozens of mince pies, and countless 1kg pannetone, stollen and Julekake without fuss. It turns out at least two 800g-1kg sourdough and yeast-based loaves a week. At high speed or low speed, this mixer has never let me down. It turns out Viccy sponges so light that I still can't believe how good they are or that I made them. It has more than paid for itself since it arrived at my door almost exactly a year ago.

I just had a look in the manual. It does clearly say:

- The dough blade, balloon whisk and metal beater blade are not dishwasher safe.
- The accessories should only be cleaned in warm water and washing up liquid.
- The mixing bowl is dishwasher safe.

Avoid if thinking about making bread..SERIOUSLY!!!

Either you work for the company or you are just very lucky, my motor burnt out after 3 goes making bread.

So as a happy owner I must, according to your warped logic, be a shill? Do get some sense even if you're only capable of getting a little.

I have one. It's alright for the money. I was using it with the dough hook one day though and it went flying off the work top. I also find it's not so good for medium quantity mixes as the scraper or whisk doesn't touch the bottom.

For some reason all the Andrew James products have very good reviews on Amazon and a large number of them too. I think there's something dodgy going on there. Anyone able to shed any light?

I would but I can't get my Andrew James torch to work LOL
