The Innovative Stand Mixer. Revolutionise the mixing experience with MixStar from Morphy Richards.
MixStar is designed to solve the problems of traditional stand mixers, which can be bulky, awkward to manoeuvre and time consuming to use.
The compact design incorporates a neat storage caddy for all of the accessories, which sits within the bowl - meaning no more scrabbling around for whisks or hooks in the back of the cupboard. MixStar is designed with modern living in mind and also fits comfortably into and under standard sized kitchen cupboards. Don't let the small footprint fool you, however - MixStar still boasts a generous 4 litre working capacity!
Easy to Use Open Top Design
Using a stand mixer can often be daunting. MixStar is designed with ease of use first and foremost, and makes mixing hassle free. The innovative design moves the motor under the bowl to provide an open top design, meaning there is no need to turn off the mixer to add ingredients, or move it out from under cupboards during a mix. Changing over the attachments, removing the bowl and using the controls have been made as simple and straight forward as possible, so you can get on with the task at hand with minimal fuss and bother.
Compact yet Powerful Design
Traditional mixers are often big and bulky, take up valuable work top space and don’t fit in many cupboards. MixStar has been designed with modern living and usage in mind but still retains a large 4 litre working capacity mixing bowl. Without the large mixing arm, it has a smaller footprint and is lower in height, which means it can be stored inside cupboards easier. If you choose to it leave out, MixStar also fits into any kitchen space with ease and can still be operated under a kitchen cupboard. By being able to leave it out and access it more easily, you will get much more out of MixStar.
Easy to Store
Storing a stand mixer and accessories can often be a problem, and leaving accessories loose in the bowl can cause damage. To overcome this as well as preventing you losing parts or scrabbling through drawers and cupboards, we have designed an innovative caddy to store all the accessories neatly. The MixStar caddy sits in the bowl without causing damage, and has a space for each component - so they are ready when you need them.
Full Cover Splash Guard
Mixing can be a messy process, so MixStar includes a transparent splash guard that covers the full bowl. This allows you to keep an eye on your mix, whilst keeping your kitchen surfaces mess free. The splash guard has an inlet built in as well with its own cover, which makes it even easier to add liquids and ingredients to your mix without the worry of the contents splashing out onto you.
Built-in Dual Blade Scrapers
On a traditional stand mixer, you often need to stop the mix in order to scrape down. This requires manoeuvring the machine, raising the arm head and then scraping around repeatedly, which can be messy and tiresome. MixStar includes a dual scraper attachment that can be used with the whisks and beaters. They rotate at the same time as the attachments, scraping down the sides of the bowl and saving you a lot of time and effort. They also help to incorporate all the ingredients, so that you get the perfect mix.
Dual Action Accessories
Stand Mixers rely on one large attachment, and require a few revolutions in order to mix the entire bowl’s contents. MixStar delivers twice the action with dual, counter-rotating mixing attachments. They rotate on their own axis whist also spinning around the bowl, ensuring you get the perfect mix. MixStar includes 2 beaters, 2 whisks and a dual dough hook, as well as crib cards to guide you on what to use for different mixtures. The twin beaters effortlessly incorporate everything into the mixture and are suitable for medium to thick batters. Twin whisks whip in tandem to help incorporate air into your mix more efficiently than standard planetary stand mixers. The dual hook dough blade simulates a skilled artisan baker's hands as it stretches, folds and tucks bread dough.
To help follow recipes with specified mixing times, we have incorporated a digital count-up timer. It starts when you begin mixing, pauses when you do and will continue to count when you start up again. When you enter the next phase of your recipe, you can reset the timer at the touch of a button.
6 Variable Speeds & 650W Motor
Although Mix Star is compact, it still performs and can handle any mixing tasks you throw at it. The 650W, 6 variable speed motor and dual action accessories allow you to mix a variety of ingredients with ease. MixStar and can handle bread dough or batter, and is delicate enough for whipping egg whites or cream.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SkippyLisa from Game changer! I have had this mixer for a couple of weeks now and it has been amazing. Solidly packaged, easy to follow instructions, looks great on the kitchen worktops and is compact in comparison to the traditional stand mixers. I love the fact that all parts fit within each other as well as the convenience of it being dishwasher safe. Game changer for me and no more misplacing any parts! I have used this a variety of time now. Cakes, Yorkshire puddings mix, mashing potato (even my teenage son who hates mash loved the texture and asked for seconds!). It takes no time to use and the fact that you can add ingredients as you go without having to take the lid off is extremely convenient. The suction on the base allows it to be sturdy and feel secure. The lead is long enough to reach the sockets with ease and it looks modern and clean. It is simple to change the parts over and the way it ‘scrapes’ the bowl has meant that I have not had to mix in addition to this. There are numerous settings and the higher up they go the noisier it is. However, the positives outweigh the noise as it is only needed for a short time and I would not take a star off for this. It has meant that my two teenage boys now want to be involved in making cakes etc....even placing it in the dishwasher. No fuss for any of us! I highly recommend this for a variety of uses and not just cakes and batter...the soft and fluffy mashed potato is a must! Looking forward to trying out the bread, pizza based and a variety of other options.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sue K from Great mixer but noisy The Star Mix arrived with plentitude of packaging. It was simple and achievable to unpack - and the storage of this useful kitchen item is compact, meaning it doesn't take up too much cupboard space. It came with multiple attachments, allowing you to get creative with different ideas; the recipe book was a lovely touch. The size of bowl is perfect for those large & yummy bakes. I used the Star Mix for a simple banana cake recipe. The beaters are strong and sturdy and produced a perfectly mixed cake batter. The speed of the Star Mix are accurate to dials, and the timer is an additional feature ideal for following specific timed recipes. I really love how clear it is to understand what the different tools are used for. I'm excited to try meringue and dough mixture next! It was easy to clean and pack away. I would give this 4 out of 5 stars as it is extremely noisy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Yaya from Suprisingly powerful I bought this as a space saver initially to replace many handheld mixers that kept burning out due to overuse. I dont have the kitchen space for a large mixer. I can now store this so easily leaving surfaces free but to my suprise this machine far outreached my expectations in regard to power. Its fab and i have never baked so well and so much. The beaters are brilliant, whisks too. Its so neat. Luv it

Rated 5 out of 5 by Eastryman from Absolutely brilliant innovative design I started using this machine a month ago and have great results with all recipies. I followed the recipes in the booklet and I have made the lightest victoria sponge ever and the lemon drizzle cake was as light as air. I have used the machine to make bread with great success. I have never found a stand mixer that kneads well but this one does. I did leave it going for about 8 minutes to get the right texture but some easier than kneading by hand. Today I made the cheese scones from the booklet and again they came out perfectly. The design is great as its easy to see what is happening as you mix and you can add ingredients easily. The mixer and scraper action is brilliant as it means that all of the ingredients get mixed evenly. The mixer is so easy to clean and compact to store. I have a very expensive stand mixer but this little machine does just about everything I need for baking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BrownieBaker from Love it I think this mixer is great value for money. It works really well and I love how all the parts are stored inside the bowl so I'll never lose them and its great for saving space! I also love the unique automatic timer feature which helps to keep track of how long the mixer has been going and avoid overmixing ingredients.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Johnsu from Super Mixer What a great compact mixer. I researched the market before making my decision to buy and was ideally looking for a mixer with at least 1000 Watts. Considering recommendations from other of your customers, I decided to buy this model that stored all attachments within its bowl. Since using it, it's a great buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MD27 from Recommend the mixstar Really delighted with this mixer. Very convenient and efficient and love the storage set up. I was a bit dubious when reading other reports about it being noisy so was really pleased when I first used it - it is quieter than my electric hand mixer Would recommend this mixer - it is being used regularly!

Rated 4 out of 5 by LJ92 from So far so good. I use to have a kenward stand mixer but had to replace it after it was stolen in a move. I was intending on buying another but then I came across this. What initially drew me to it was the design and fact it takes up less space, I have a extremely small kitchen now and a traditional stand mixer is just too big and takes up too much space. This is definitely a improvement on a standard stand mixer that are too big and then too high anyway let alone when you need to lift it. Even if you have space this is still a improvement. Best of all although not so big and bulky the bowl is still decent size. The attachments being stored nice and neatly inside are great also. The only negatives I have had so far are that the scraper attachment doesn't completely touch the sides of the bowl which is annoying, it is also rather noisy than what I am use to. So far I have made cakes, butter icing and basic biscuits these have all worked fine and had no issues at all with, I have yet to make dough or bread etc so slightly worried how it will hold up to them but will have to wait and see. The way the bowl sits on base has so far been fine although do wish it was slightly better and more secure. If you turn it it can end up undoing the bit in the middle, which can be easily done whilst trying to make sure it is on right . Overall though I haven't had any issues with it and would definitely recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mr othello from Mixstar....baking star! Having seen my 10 year old niece struggling with hand held mixer, & the amount of time she spent mixing the ingredients I wanted to buy a mixer that would save time, yet lend a reliable helping hand, so she could concentrate on baking lovely cakes for the family, she is a big bake-off fan! I didn’t want a big machine that’s hard to work with, heavy to move around or something that takes up too much space. Bearing in mind a 10 yr old will be working it with her mums supervision. Having researched quite a few mixers I came across morphy’s mixstar, this mixer ticked so many boxes, it’s EASY to use, Easy to clean, Easy to store & all accessories pack neatly into the mixer after use, bingo just what I was looking for. I bought this, and we put it to the test today, the mixstar knows it’s job well & works effortlessly, leaving you with plenty of time on hand to do other kitchen tasks, while it does all the hard work for you. I must say I was surprised how quickly my niece completed the baking tasks today with mixstar at her side, she had a big smile on her face, after completing her baking tasks in quick time. The only drawback if you multitasking different ingredients for different baking if only Morphy’s had included an extra mixing bowl with this machine, reason being you have to take out the bowl clean it wash it and start over again, but hey that’s not a big deal. Though it’s a bit pricey but it’s quality & with 2 year manufacturers warranty what more can you ask for?I would recommend it to anyone who wants a good simple mixer that’s easy to use,a space saver and is fun at baking time.
