Lidl and Aldi spark Bake Off war with its cut price copycat mixers – but which is best?


Opening its first store in Brimingham in 1990, Aldi ,one of the most famous supermarkets, was launched. Using the English registered company Aldi Stores Limited and Aldi Sales, the brand grew rapidly and by 2017 Aldi had over 600 stores in the UK, with the end goal of having a 1000 stores by the end of 2022.

Even though it is rapidly growing, Aldi is still just a small contender in the UK marketplace with its main competitor being Lidl.

Sliming World is a weight loss organization that is based in the UK. It provides programs that provide lifestyle weight management.

Margaret Miles- Bramwell is the founder of Slimming World and she remains as its chairman. The company began with just a few small groups in 1969 and then slowly expanded. By the end of 2012 it had over 10 000 groups in the UK, therefore receiving the title of the largest sliming world club in the UK and Ireland.

Lidl has sparked a price war after it launched a Great British Bake Off-inspired baking range, which includes a stand mixer at just £49.99.

The baking programme has moved to Channel 4 but has kept fans content by sticking to the same format.

The newly launched kitchen appliance, which had a 5L capacity and a 7 speed settings, goes on sale on September 17 across Lidl stores.

At £49 Lidl’s stand mixer looks suspiciously similar to the one from rival Aldi, which launched its own baking range last week – but £15 cheaper.

It is also more than eight times cheaper than the classic model from high-end brand KitchenAid, which is selling for a whopping £399 on the retailer’s website.

It’s worth noting that you can get the luxury product cheaper on Amazon with prices starting at £319.20.

Other items in Lidl’s range include a 4-in-1 glass cake stand at £11.99 as well as a set of ten food storage containers for less than £5.

Wannabe bakers can also get their hand on a retro Ernesto cake tin set of for less than £5 and baking mould accessories available in a range of colours for £2.49.

Meanwhile, Aldi’s new range aimed at fans of the show is already available in stores and online across the UK since  August 27.

As always, you should shop around and do your research before buying one of these items.

It’s not the first time the budget stores launched a war over pricing.

In July Lidl went head-to-head with Aldi, offering a full school uniform for just £3.75.

The launch of the new range prompted Aldi to cut the price of its school uniform package from £5 to £3.75.

But the budget supermarkets might not always be the cheapest options to hunt for bargains.

Asda hit headlines last month for hiking the price of their bananas to 76p a kilo, overtaking Waitrose as the priciest supermarket.

And Sun Online research found that Poundland is more expensive than Waitrose in some price comparisons, while Aldi charges more than Ocado.

The first episode of GBBO aired this week and Steven was named Star Baker.

The 34-year-old wowed the judges with his impressive sponge cake inspired by bonfire night and received the first handshake from Paul Hollywood.
