If you're a keen baker, a benchtop food mixer is a solid investment.

Bench mixers make light work of mixing cake batter, kneading dough and beating egg whites at the turn of a dial. So if you’re a keen baker, buying one of these machines is money well spent.

We've tested 11 models priced from $145 to $1195 on a range of kitchen tasks, and explain the features to look for.
