Bake-off season is well under way, which can only mean that KitchenAid envy has well and truly set in.
Seen on screen in an array of beautiful colours, these machines are on every baker’s wishlist. However, with the hefty price tag of £549 (never mind the copper model which comes in at an eye-watering £739!), these beauties aren’t ideal if you’re on a tighter budget.
But never fear, as Your Home has scoured the kitchen market in the search of finding the best budget stand mixers and here are our top picks under £100.
