Anyone here bakes?

I love baking and want to buy a good mixer. I heard of KitchenAid but wow! almost $300 for it is not in my budget. Is there a similar good mixer like that one but cheaper??

    I was looking at other brands like Hamilton Beach 64650 6-Speed Classic Stand Mixer but not sure if its good. It looks like just the hand held one I got just with the bowl.

      I have a kitchen aid but it was a Christmas gift from my parents a few years ago otherwise I wouldn't have one. I used to have a stand mixer that I paid about $20 for at walmart and I really liked it. You could take the mixer part off and use it as a hand mixer.

      I have a hand mixer, I want something like a stand mixer for easier baking.

        A great way to find one cheaper is to wait until Christmas time and they have good sales on them or on qvc or the home shopping network. They always have good deals too, especially around Christmas.

            Not a clue. My sister saved up for two years for her. She put money aside whenever she could in a jar labeled 'mixer'. I personally don't like gadgets..because I usually ed up breaking them... I have broken an electric can opener before and nobody knows how, so I just use elbow grease. :)
