    Good Housekeeping review here:

    Also, have a look at the Amazon reviews for the 18553 - mixed reviews and concerns about breakdowns - the mixer itself looks exactly the same.

    My opinion: it looks like fantastic value for money but I would worry about getting replacement parts in the future as Russell Hobbs is not known for its mixers.

    Have a look on YouTube as well for independent demos.

    How come this didn't post yesterday??

    Oh well...

    Thanks Tiddlywinks. Always good to get a second opinion. I'll have a looky around.

    Yellowbear - what do you think now you've seen the reviews?

    What are you going to use the mixer for? What's your budget? Are you looking for the most affordable or a real workhorse?

    Some of the review videos show this model working next to a KitchenAid mixer for a side by side comparison - the dough hook didn't pick up as well, the whisking took much longer and, generally, it rocked around more.... BUT the KitchenAid is five times the price!

    I have a KitchenAid and got it after months of poring over reviews... primarily went for this instead of a Kenwood because it is built using the original design and all parts are serviceable and readily available so it should last me out :rotfl:.

    The Kenwoods have started to get more mixed reviews with people saying the newer ranges seem less robust.... I don't know if that's right but I steered away for peace of mind.

    So, what're your thoughts?
