This is not everyone's cup of tea but might give you another option if you are looking to buy one of these mixers.

I was searching around and found that the cheapest way to buy these currently is through Amazon US.

amazon.com/gp/…KW/

If you select your UK address at checkout it adds the import duty and postage costs which turn out to be $468. At today's rate of 1£=1.63399$ this turns out to be £289.

The next best price I have seen is around 347 on House of Fraser through recognition card and use of myunidays code.

->325-watt stand mixer with 10 speeds and 67-point planetary mixing action
->Solid, all-metal base; 5-quart stainless-steel bowl; 2-piece pouring shield
->Uniquely styled tilting head allows clear access to the beater and bowl
->Multipurpose attachment hub; flat beater, dough hook, and wire whip included

Catch:
Please be aware of the following if you do chose to buy through this
1) you will most probably need a voltage converter. ( not sure about this)
2) some banks may charge 3% transaction fee for payment in foreign currency
3) warranty is only 1 year as compared to 5 year warranty offered elsewhere and not sure whether this will be valid in UK
4) currently there is an offer of claiming free ice cream maker attachment if you buy from authorized retailers in UK so you'll miss out on that
5) Amazon shows import duties cost at checkout so not sure whether this includes VAT as well and you should probably call and check with amazon first

I just wanted to give you another option if you are looking to buy one of these. Hope it helps someone. If not, try the following deal for £347+quidco+ Ice Cream Maker which is what I bought.

Would this not need a voltage converter?

Yep, they are 110V in the US!

Can you return if damaged to Amazon UK ?

I think that this will be expecting 120v, so you would also need a step-down transformer.

decent transformer that will take the load from the mixer will be over 80quid

Mixer is 325 watts so it'll need a 500VA step up transformer.

hahah. yup. legin free linux distribution

As this'll almost certainly only be 110v then there's no real point as far as I can tell, the cost of a transformer, let alone the sheer buggerance of having a bulky transformer on your worktop plus this little beast would drive many cooks mad. Just buy the UK version and keep the wife happy

Yea you need a big ol transformer don't you? Better to wait and buy from UK in my opinion. I remember nearly buying it from US and getting info on what extras I need but then a few months later it went cheap here.

The warranty is invalid if you use it on incorrect voltage or with a converter. I looked into importing one last year. Plus. the VAT and import duties will add a big amount to the cost so please beware!!

Might be cheap, but with added hassle!!!!
