The best kitchen appliances – 2018/2019

With a kitchen machine you can make everything from eggedosis to big yeast bakers easily and easily. Below we have collected tests of the best mixers on the market so you can easily choose the best machine for you and your needs.

Best in test

Our review shows that it is OptiMUM MUM9yx5s12 from Bosch that is best tested by kitchen machines. It boasts a strong engine and features features.

Soon after, the Bakery Boss comes from Sage to secure second place. Bakery Boss gets boasted to be good at the most and not least quietly in use. Also, many like to get the “K-spade” that scratches the pages while mixing as standard.

Third place and last pallet location goes to Kenwood Chef XL Titanium KVL8300S . It is evenly over a good and reliable kitchen machine.

All the kitchen machines in the test make a good figure, and since the test winner Bosch is the most expensive machine in the test, it will be an equally good option to choose one of the less expensive machines. As there are larger differences in price than in score, it would be worth taking a look at more than just the test winner before deciding.

For example, his test loser, Electrolux Assistant Pro EKM6000 , is a recommended product of tek.no. It is the clearly cheapest machine in the test and will be an obvious option for those who do not want to spend too much money on a kitchen machine.

Remember: The number of tests that make up the score in our test is also worth taking into consideration. The score for Bosch is based on two tests, while the score for Bakery Boss is based on nine different assessments. When it differs relatively much in price, there will be something to be aware of.

What is a kitchen machine?

The name of the kitchen machine itself really explains nothing but its use in the kitchen. The English word for cooking machine, stand mixer, says a little more about what the machine is. Because, in essence, a kitchen machine is a big mixer or chopper, which can usually make larger portions.

Ideally, a kitchen machine will make baking and cooking both easier and more efficient. Particularly heavier tasks like chasing dough are infinitely much easier by letting a machine do the coarse work for you. A kitchen machine is also handy for mixing cocktails, whipping and no fog whipping, for example, of cream.

Most of these work areas can be used for other products. For example, if you just want to whip and make simple touches, a hand knife will be what you need. If you make a lot of smoothie, a spellmaker will be a good option.

If the capacity of a spellmaker is too small, a blender could do much of the same job, but to a slightly larger extent. Blenders are thus well placed in the center layer between the kitchen machine and the stitcher.

Since the dividing lines in many areas may be sliding, it is advisable to be aware of your own needs. It would make it much easier to make a right choice.

Tips for choosing a kitchen machine

Not only are there many types of machines that cater for different needs, but it’s also a huge information port filled up with model numbers, color codes and version codes of the same product that all contribute to creating confusion in the search.

What should you look for and what does not you need to care about? The answer to these questions depends on what your plans are in the kitchen. Below we review a few criteria that will be crucial to what type of kitchen machine you should buy, and not least how much you need to invest in the machine.

Application

As mentioned, your use will be crucial for the choice of kitchen machine. Should you bake regularly and in large quantities, it will often be an idea to stretch the budget more than if you want to mix bagemics from the store. The rule of thumb is that the more expensive the machine, the higher the building quality and the better material usage. This should at least be expected.

Capacity

When you know what to use the kitchen machine, whether it’s like a big breeder chopping machine several times a week, or mixing a waffle stirrer once in a while, the machine’s capacity will be crucial. The capacity of the machine you choose will determine the amount of quantity you can make at a time. Therefore, choose a machine with capacity to suit your needs.

Size

Kitchen appliances are often large in size and how much space you have will be decisive for which machine will be the best product for you. Whether you’re thinking of having it standing on the kitchen counter or storing it in the closet between each use, the size of the machine is important to include in the assessment.

Weight

In addition to the size of the machine, the weight will be worth thinking of before deciding.

On the one hand, it will be difficult to store a heavy kitchen machine on top of or inside a closet. Both, considering that you have to lift it back and forth, but it may also be a matter of whether the shelf will handle the weight. Being heavy is difficult to handle. Then you will want to have the standing available on the kitchen counter, if you have space of course.

On the other hand, a heavy kitchen machine will also have its advantages. A heavy kitchen machine may not be mobile, but in return it is usually stable and still in use. A light machine will have easier to move on the kitchen counter during use than a heavy machine is.

Here, you should prioritize whether you want a bauta of a machine, good or bad, or if you want a little handy one, on good and bad.

Option and customization

This test has both kitchen machines with many customization options and machines without the option of optional equipment.

For example, there is a lot of optional equipment for the Bosch test winner. This allows it to fill the role of most other kitchen machines. Other machines, as both products from Sage have simply not opened for extras.

If you want your kitchen machine to do more than mixing and baking, it would be an idea to choose a machine that either comes with or opens for extra equipment. You may, for example, depending on the model and equipment you could eat meat, make ice cream or pasta.

If you want one kitchen machine to relate to, a machine with optional extras will be a good option. Should you only bake and make stirring, there is no need for extras you know you will not use. Think about what kind of possibilities you need and want.

Effect

Contrary to what you think, there is no automation in that big engines with a lot of watts do better than small motors with little watts.

In our test, the test’s smallest engine in the KitchenAid 5KSM125 scores about as well as the test’s largest engine in the Kenwood Chef XL Titanium KVL8300S. This shows that it is more about building quality than technical specifications in itself.

Noise level

It is easy to imagine that if you have a large power machine with a powerful engine, it will create a lot of noise during use, while a small engine produces less noise. However, as with power, building quality is the most important criterion, not size. In the product descriptions below, we provide the noise level of the machines in decibel *.

To have a reference of the numbers below lies a regular conversation of about 65 dB. For each 3 dB volume is doubled. Thus, 68 dB is experienced as twice as high as 65 dB.

Bosch Optimum is packed with features controlled from the panel in front of the machine. It has an integrated weight and is quiet in use, even during the chasing of heavy doughs. However, the Bosch machine is pulled to be a bit cumbersome in switching on and off the accessory and that the ball is difficult to remove from the machine.
