If watching the Great British Bake Off has given you the need to knead, you can read all about all this best baking gear in Gadget issue 14, now on sale. To celebrate, we also have some Smeg kitchen kit that might take your fondant fancy to give away. One lucky winner will win a Smeg stand mixer and blender.
The Italian appliance makers Fifties-inspired range doesn’t just suit the vintage style of Bake Off’s big tent, it’s actually part of the show’s furniture. Look closer next time you see a contestant reach into the fridge for ingredients and notice the familiar curves and brightly coloured designs.
But just because Smeg’s kitchen range has a traditional look, doesn’t mean it’s not packing cutting-edge features under its die-cast aluminium casing. The £350 SMF01 mixer has a vast 4.8-litre stainless steel bowl and an 800W direct motor with variable speed control, so you mix anything from bread to whip cream. It also comes with optional attachments, including a three-piece pasta maker and cutter set. The £150 BLF01 has a maximum of 18,000 RPM, but because you don’t want to liquidise everything, it also has four-speed settings as well as pulse, crush and smoothie functions.
