Can Anyone Identify The Mixers Used On Master Chef ?
I've been watching some of the recent episodes and noticed the mixers have a first look appearance as retro Hobart bullet Kitchen Aid's, but apparently they are not, at least nothing in retail production.
I don't have a HD tv, but I can make out that they are pivot head units with a handle on the front of the head. All KA's have the accessory shaft hidden behind a logo'd flap in the same place. I've yet to see any perspecitive where the controls are visible or any manufacture name. They are definitely not Kenwood or Cuisanart type based architecture. Doing a search on them, I noticed that others must be searching too as Google's auto complete lists a few search suggestions asking the same question. Image searchs show Breville having a mixer that has a handle on the front of the head, although the unit is definitely not the retro bullet look of the ones on the show.
While it's possible they have mixer housings made for the show not to endorse any particular brand, it's not probable as many other items are logo'd with manufactuer's names. I've noticed during the past few years that cooking shows have increasingly stopped using KA as a sponsor and their appliances. I can't tell for sure, but these mixers appear to have the same planetary movement like KA/Hobart.
