For me the Stirling stand mixer from Aldi , es perfect,
I am so happy with the Stirling Stand Mixer ( from Aldi) I never have a problem, I paid $200 for it and not $600 or $700 , for a Kitchenaid . I recommend it, if they will selling again . I am so happy with my purchase!
Purchased at ALDI for $200.00.
This is great!!!
My mixer was bought for me by my husband. I had always wanted one, but we never seemed to have the money BUT then we went to Aldi, it was love at first sight. It now sits proudly in my kitchen. Only one problem, and that is that i can't whip cream in it. So frustrating!! Does anyone out there have any clues? I love thick whipped cream but have had to go without.

4 years , not a problem
Had the Aldi Mixer for 4 years and it's mostly used for making bread every few days. The mix time is usually between 10 and 15 minutes of very hard work. It would be nice if the gears were a bit quieter but it's never failed or stopped because of overheating. (I was not aware of the4 minute limit.)
My impressions, brilliant machine in value for money. If it was to break down today I'd buy another when they become available.
Purchased at Aldi Victor Harbor for $129.00.
Lasted 3 uses only. Aldi does not have parts and absolutely no help. Better to spend money on well known brands.
Beater broke on the 3rd use. Only used at christmas time in 2018 2019 and broke 2020.No replacement available and no help from aldi. Extremely heavy and very noisey. Plastic id very basic.

Loud , does basic kneading and Misleading Warranty
Bought it from Aldi died just after year, good for basic kneading but then sometimes had to with hand after as it does not do the perfect knead. But for the money it was okay. But when actually it contacted the service centre, them saying it cant be covered after one year but has 3 year warranty written all over it. It cant be serviced so can not cover it . Then refund the money if you can't cover it.

Dissappointed in the Aldi product Classic Stand Mixer
It was impossible to cream butter and sugar for a cake, no matter how long I beat it, it was very unsatisfactory. What a waste of time. Should have looked at reviews before buying it,. I had to go back to my trusty hand mixer to make the cake. I'll look closely next time before buying what I thought would be a good product.

This is a good Mixer
I have been using this mixer for a long time and I really like this mixer. I recommend this mixer to everyone because of its built quality and standard they are offering.

Waste of Money
Bought from Aldi 3 or so years ago. It's useless... the mix attachment doesn't reach the bottom of the bowl (there's a little rise right in the middle of the bowl and the rest of the base is lower). The mixture just sticks to the bottom and sides whilst the attachment tries to do its job. I haven't tried to use it in 2 years but got it out today thinking it can't be THAT bad.... it is! Trying to cream butter and sugar is torture and basically impossible. Finally I had to get out my hand mixer and use that. Far more effective but at least it worked.
Also, the mixer is extremely heavy to lift.

Poor quality, no power
I had mine for a couple of years and used it on average once per month. With just 1 kilo of dough it overheated, making the cover to melt and crack. I ended up with pieces of plastic in the dough, all wasted and the mixer is ready for the rubbish bin
It does everything it needs to
Sure it's not the best on the market, may be 80% close to it, but it cost 20% of that.
If I have a criticism to make is only that I wish it had a dedicated funnel to allow pouring the ingredients while spinning, the location of the hole in the lid doesn't make it very comfortable - not a big deal though - particularly because the plastic disc which covers the rotating whiskers covers that exact hole when spinning.
Well done Aldi, another great value for money product.
Not sure what these other people are complaining about. Maybe they bought a f...

Bought and broke after two years ,
Was okay , not bad for the price but didn't last long enough , made a lot of noise,
Great, Untill it works
I used monthly for 4 years. It is now broken. When I switch on the power the led light will blink and the motor will not start. I guess there is a sensor that check the motor and does a safety check. I will probably buy a better brand next time.
Mixing attachments do not reach the bottom of the bowl therefore mixture is not mixed properly, you have to finish mixing by hand. The item is also very heavy, very disappointed in general in this product. I don't use it anymore, money wasted. Very sad as Kogan in general is great.
Dangerous and badly designed
It's dangerous; I believe negligently so, by design. Buy this and risk mangling your fingers. There are other issues relative to design.
I got this because I needed something to mix while doing other cooking chores (as compared to using a couple of hand-held mixers and leaving them dripping while doing other things, for example). My main hand-held mixer has the eject button on the top; so ,while holding it in one hand, the beater things can be pulled out with the other hand. This Ambiano mixer has the Turbo-Speed button in exactly that place. ...
Waste of Money
Have had this appliance for 18 months to 2 years and has been used very little. Problems with the motor when turning the knob on and now can't raise the arm so it is useless because I can't get the bowl under the beater or change the beater. No repair available.
My similar mixer
I can't even find my exact Ambiano mixer product name or picture but I have recently bought a white one. I used it for the first time yesterday and couldn't work out why the egg and sugar didn't mix ... soon found out the the flat bottom of the bowl didn't "flow" the ingredients together and there were streaks of unmixed egg ... puzzling at first. When washing the basin I felt the bottom of the bowl had a very small depression in its moulding right at the edge to the upright sides [hard to describe but I'm sure any cook would get the idea ....].... How does anyone in product design think that ingredients sitting in a lower level at the outside of a bowl would succeed in schooling those ingredients into the mix being blended? I'm over 70 and have been using my mother's and grandmother's mixers since I was 9 years old ... NEVER have seen a mixing bowl design like this. I don't want to have to be pulling the beaters off to use as a handheld ... the whole reason of buying the machine was to avoid that. This is the 2nd faulty product I've bought from Aldi in the last few months: the slow cooker I bought developed a crack in the glass lid the first time I used it. Cheaper prices also need to offer reliable quality, especially when it is any product associated with food.
Mixer won't run.
Its noisy. But also the rotary knob has a problem in that it only works intermittently. when this happens, which is now most of the time, the light flashes. I have tried tapping firmly on the knob but the result is it only operates when it wants to, which now is not often. Not the first problem i have had with this Kuchef brand. I am now very selective when it comes to purchasing mechanical items from ALDI as i have had to return a few faulty items.
I can't find my docket so i don't know how this will pan out. Rob-Queensland.
I was given this as a present from my mother who struggles with money. She was very proud to give me such a good looking mixer. Problem is it does not reach to the bottom of the bowl. I have to stop it often to scape the bottom dry ingredients up. Also had trouble releasing the bowl from the machine without spilling the contents. I've converted back to my 25 year old black and decker who has never missed a beat. I'm too afraid to tell mum as she would be too embarrassed.
I have had this machine for about 12 months, and used it minimally, with no problem. I went to turn the machine on, and the light kept flashing. The motor would not start. I returned it to aldi, who told me to return it to the manufacturer. I was told that the postage would be payable by me if the fault was mine. It is a very heavy machine, so the postage would be a large amount, but as the machine was no use as it was, i returned it by mail. That was almost 3 month ago, and i have not heard a word. Terrible product, and terrible after sales support
The Kuchef model 419401 I bought from Aldi 16 months ago is the first stand mixer I've ever had, so I didn't really have anything to compare to as such. Did like the machine, didn't like the squeeling noise it often made, then very dissapointed that it hadn't had a lot of use, but stopped working. When it is first turned on, it will work, then as soon as it is stopped, the light then starts flashing and it will not turn on again at all, just the light continues flashing. After a day or more, try it again - same story. Have just organised to ret...urn it for a refund, they were very helpful, but unfortunately replacement is not available, refund is the only option. Starting to question the Kuchef brand, as I only just returned a dry fryer which was also under warantee but stopped working as well, I really liked that product too.
