Three (3) Top Rated Mixers - Bosch, Ankarsrum and WonderMix

There are 3 mixers I know people love (love love love) but honestly they've always been out of my budget.  As a matter of fact, when I got married I bought myself a little $9 hand held Hamilton Beach mixer and that is what I used for the next few years (of heavy, heavy use!) until the motor burned out.

When I replaced it, we had a couple little children by then and I couldn't afford anything more so again, I replaced it with a hand held Hamilton Beach and used that for the next 10 years.  By this time I was making 1000+ cookies at Christmas time, not to mention cooking 3 meals a day for a family of 5.  It held up like a champ and soon I was gifted a KitchenAid mixer one Christmas - which took the load off my little hand held and opened up the world of using my mixer for things like breads and doughs!  Things my little hand held could never have dreamed of tackling.

These days I still have that KitchenAid mixer and I still always have on hand a little Hamilton Beach mixer; they are awesome for quick jobs, beating the egg whites over a double boiler on the stovetop for 7-minute frosting and whipping something up quick.  However, the bigger mixers are such a wonderful investment as they can do SO MUCH.

One day I hope to own a Ankarsrum but two of the more popular brands (because of affordability) tend to the Bosch and the WonderMix.

I looked up all 3 on Amazon last week and wrote a draft post showing all three for comparison.  At the time of research the prices were as posted although we all know Amazon's prices go up and down daily... and sometimes go up (or sell out) between you putting it in your cart and hitting the purchase button.  So the prices below will need to be doubled checked at the links before purchasing as the price currently posted on Amazon is what they sell for.

Still... if you are looking for an upper end home mixer for yourself or perhaps as a Christmas gift this year, these links can lead you in the right direction if you plan to purchase through Amazon.
