The award winning Smeg stand mixer is becoming a style icon in its own right and is beautifully crafted with a die-cast aluminium body and superb ergonomic design. The 4.8 litre capacity high polished stainless steel bowl is a perfect capacity for all uses and sits below the 800W direct drive motor with planetary action. The lever on the top allows variable speed control between 1 and 10 with the lower range perfect for kneading and the top end better for high speed whisking. In the box, there is also a recipe book and three attachments for getting started.

Features

  • Body material: Die-cast aluminium

Good deal but is 800w enough for an 4.8l bowl?

Is this style over substance? Couldn't you get a better stand mixer for the money?

More of a question than a statement, just did some casual googling and this is a well regarded unit and a great price
I don't personally have any SMEG products but I got an older version of these for my Mum a few years ago and she uses it all the time, baking etc and it's still going strong, so I think it's a pretty well tested product and definitely worth it at this price. Oh and it's also a 800w and hasn't burnt out yet so seems to cope ok.
How does this compare to a Kitchen Aid Artisan which have a 300w motor but seen as the gold standard of mixers

Kitchen Aid mixers are garbage and certainly NOT the gold standard lol. I know as I have had lots (all with problems).

They struggle with dough and the latch fails too. Also - it's funny that people are saying this 800W isn't enough power when Kitchen Aid's have just 300W!!
Smeg lol

Not for dough


Shame. That's what I wanted it for. Do you know any that are good for dough?

Try the Kenwood Chef Titanium (model no KVC7300S). It's an absolute beast - I think it's 1500w - and it's what we have. I honestly think it would mix cement.

It should have serious longevity too if it's predecessor is anything to go by. We inherited my mum's old kenwood chef and it only went kapput last year after 30+ years of near-daily use.

It's expensive, but worth it. Especially if you only have to buy once when you might have to buy 2+ times with other brands.
Cant comment on others but we have had this mixer for 2 years and it's been great for our general use, can get other easy to clip in attachments like grinder etc too. Looks good enough that we keep it out on the island. Not my choice as I do think you pay for "style" to an extent but, We have matching Victoria Range, toaster and kettle and have had no issues with any of them so far so think they also do have the substance, also not as common as the kitchenaid.

what a beautiful kitchen! I have the same kettle in green.

So what about with dough? Previous comments have said it doesn't handle dough well

Absolutely agree about kitchen aid, I have had one and not impressed. Motor pretty poor on it- I have a kenwood kmix now and it is brilliant. Nearly 5 years old and still
going strong. I would also recommend a mixer that has a compatible creaming tool. A must for any keen baker.

Some people want style. So it depends what your definition of "better" is.

I have a Kenwood KMIX750 1000W and it cannot handle 2kg of dough, it overheats then I have to wait for it to cool down. I split the batch in two if is too much.
Hydration and temperature make a difference but I keep them low (harder on the mixer) for pizza dough.

This is a bit annoying as ive been researching a mixer for about 3 months now.

Total watts really doesnt tell you anything about the quality of the gearing and how much energy is actually at the mixer. Its a bit like a 300bhp car being trounced by a 150bhp car because the 300bhp cant get its power down.

You have to really research. Despite 300w on kitchenaids theyre supposed to have high quality gearing.

Personally im stuck between a kitchenaid, kenwood or a smeg.

Worryingly, kitchenaid prices have dropped dramatically over the last 3 months. You dont suddenly drop prices of a Ferrari unless youre struggling to sell them. Which suggests their current batch might not be that great.

The current kitchenaid prices shouldnt be viewed as offers due to how long theyve been so low.

Aside from that, this smeg is a bargain for the headline figures and additional accessories arent too bad a price from Marks Electricals online. So a hot from me.

Depends on consistency of the dough and amount. Each mixer has a limit.

If all youre doing is baking bread or mostly bread then you need to research a product which is dedicated for dough or primarily dough.

These stand mixers for normal home use are supposed to be a bit of everything.

Im not surprised! Read your manual.

The maximum that kmix can do is 1.3kg of dough. It says it quite clearly on the specs.

Kenwood Chefs can handle up to 2.2kg.

Kitchenaids don't have high quality gearing. They have cheap plastic gears which fail. The old real Kitchenaids had metal gears. The pro models are the only ones now with metal gears. The normal ones like the artisan are plastic.

Explains it then, everything i read said how good they were, which didnt tally up for me with the price drop.
Must be a good tear down video somewhere online.
Looked at Which mixer reviews and this Smeg only gets a 50% rating compared to other Best Buy machines on 82%. Pros - Good mixing and kneading - Cons - Poor whisking, difficult to select setting, Narrow chute on splashguard.
I will just leave these here for those that are actually interested in buying the product.

I'm always a bit dubious with which, have had various which recommended products which turned out to be terrible. Not sure how independent their researchers are at times! I think for a general use home mixer this is a great buy at this price, its serving us well but no doubt it does have its limits too, like capacity! I certainly wouldnt rate it as 50% as we couldn't fault ours. but then people are maybe comparing it with much higher end machines too, it all comes down to how much people can spend and their kneeds! See what I did there :/
Any budding cake makers out their this is a great piece of kit - price is also very, very good - nice one OP
Oos now 😫

I have a kitchenaid. Looks great on the counter and that's about where it's positives end. If you look at owner reviews and have they actually function during use (especially things which push them like making dough/bread), Kenwoods are the best. Do they look the best? No. When I think of a Kenwood, do I think of something high-end? No. If I was buying a mixer now and didn't have one, would I buy a Kenwood? Yes.

Looks like you should've done your homework first then,

Eh? When I bought my Kitchenaid they were the machine everyone was after and they were also featured constantly by top chefs on all the BBC programmes etc. No-one said a bad word about them. I did tons of research before buying my KA. The problem with KA is they built their reputation on their old machines which were really good and have nothing to do with the machines they sell these days - they're owned by Whirlpool now. If you're gonna make cakes and the odd loaf of bread, all of these mixers will be fine for you - the KA probably actually has the advantage is looks better. If you plan on baking bread every other day, you're gonna need a seriously good solid high-end machine. My KA has overheated a few times and had tons of black smoke pouring out of it when making bread when I used to do single batches of dough - you will be ok with these machines if you stay well below the max flour limits and split them into small batches. Make sure you use the correct water ratios. The latches on the KA that keep the motohead down are not fit for purpose and badly designed. The motorhead will bounce up and down when dealing with dough and adjusting the screws will not fix the problem and will release itself. I had loads of KA mixers and they all had the same problem. I then sent mine back to KA a few times, and they basically did nothing and refused to replace it and sent it back saying they fixed it, but it wa doing the same thing. I put lots of thick hair bands around the front and around the latch to prevent this from happening - it looks ridiculous but is the only thing that works. Funnily enough - I was watching one of the top chefs on a BBC cookery program a couple of years ago using his KA, and I noticed he did exactly the same lol!!
