Where to find: stand mixer and crockpot

Post by intime0 » Tue, 04 Jan 2011 12:54 pm

I would like something under $600 for the stand mixer...my DH won't go there. LOL. We cannot find anything lower.

also, not much like even finding a crockpot.

I've seen tiny very overpriced (IMO) crock pots at Tang's (at VivoCity) I believe. Tang's also has a large selection of stand mixers but I never noted the prices.

Depending on the day you go, you may have some luck with these items at the Salvation Army store at Upper Bukit Timah Rd.

You should go have a look at Sia Huat. They actually cater towards the commercial restaurant market, but they have a retail store in Chinatown on Temple Street that will sell to the public. <br>

The prices and much better than department store and they have a huge selection. Just don't expect it to be laid out like a Tang's. You have to search and ask for what you want. I just bought a pizza stone (rare to find) and some cafe latte glasses this weekend. Go early in the morning as they get crazy busy and crowded!

I was wondering if you ever got your stand mixer and how much you paid for it. I am shipping a lot of stuff from the US and I am debating if I should buy a Kitchenaid stand mixer and ship it along

What about the crockpot?

Thanks

You won't want to bring a 110v stand mixer to a 230v country. You could use it with a step-down transformer I guess, but why bother?

Crockpot in US = Claypot here in Singapore. What the Brits call a slow cooker. Widely available if you look.

Totts is a fairly new shop on Bukit Timah at the Sime Darby centre (BMW garage) that sells everything food related - all dining/kitchen stuff immaginable. Its the consumer version of Sia Huat mentioned above. You do pay a little more for the nice shop fittings though.

TOTT is a really good shop, although they didn't sell a tortilla press when I went there looking for one..............which I'm sad about :cry:

Loads of stand mixers though
