We’re huge KitchenAid fans. The number and variety of our classes certainly put the appliances through their paces, but the robust design ensures that they stand up to pretty much anything that we throw at them.

In the cookery school we use everything from hand blenders and kettles to ice cream makers, and of course, the original stand mixers. We have the Artisan 6.9L stand mixer and the iconic 4.8L version. They’re as good as the commercial mixers we use in the bakery – but on a smaller scale! The dough hook attachment, in particular, is invaluable. It saves time and energy and guarantees professional results every time.
