Nick the Editor of asked if I would choose a cooking gift on a budget from Tesco.

I chose an almond KMix Premium Handmixer by Kenwood which also comes in red, black and white. It's robust, stylish and comes complete with it's own stand to hold the mixer, dough hooks and beaters. The mixer operates at 350 watts and making cakes is a doddle. It also has five speed settings plus a very useful pulse setting.

Meringues, lemon coconut drizzle cake and Yorkshire Puddings were put to the test this week and the mixer performed all of the tasks with ease.

This mixer would make a great present, also Kenwood have put the mixer in a wonderful black presentation box with a photograph of the K-Mix on the outside.

A few suggestions for cooking gifts, are the Salter Slimline Stainless Steel Digital Scales, Cast Iron Reversible Grill, Kenwood Chrome Food Processor and the Philips Handblender, and are all under £50.

Thank you Nick for supplying the KMix Handmixer by Kenwood.

I have one these - so useful and really sturdy to use, the number of speed settings is so helpful. I need new scales so will check out your selection.
