1. Kitchen Aid Mixer $899.00 From Millys Kitchen
Everyone loves KitchenAid! An American icon since 1938 and still coming off the production line today as it was way back then. Made entirely of cast metal this new Artisan model weighs a robust 11.3kg. A direct drive 300w induction motor will handle batches of bread dough and batters with ease using the 10 speed solid state controls.

3. Vacuvin Pineapple Slicer $27.50 Size: 24cm high. Rating:
From Millys Kitchen
The Vacuvin Pineapple Slicer is composed of two pieces: a shaft which is about 7 inches long and a 3-incle slicer /corer circle with teeth that is attached at the base, which cuts into the pineapple as you are twisting. This award-winning slicer also makes perfectly-shaped pineapple rings, reducing the mess and work out of preparing this tropical treat to a mere pulverizing 30 seconds.
