When it comes to preparing dough and icing for any type of baking, our Defy Hand Mixer is an essential tool to have. It’s easy to clean, doesn’t take up much space in your kitchen, and is well suited for quick tasks such as whipping egg whites or creams. Since the beaters are not fitted to a particular mixing bowl, you can use a hand mixer in any type of bowl.
To perfectly bake a cake, consistency is always key. Our Slimline ThermoFan+ Eye-Level Oven uses fan assisted which cooks at lower temperatures so that you can bake those succulent, fluffy recipes you have always dreamed of. In addition, Thermofan+ enhances the flavour while optimizing the cooking time.
