Bake and create to your heart’s content with this Kenwood mixer. The powerful 500 Watt motor combines the toughest ingredients – great for making heavy dough. As it’s a stand mixer, it’s suitable for worktop use and requires less elbow grease. For peace of mind, the Auto Stop function halts the mixing when the head is lifted, so it’s safe too. It comes with 3 accessories – a whisk, dough hook and creaming beater – for more ways to cook and bake. The variable speeds give you total control over your mix, giving perfect dough and batter.

Good quality, sturdy and robust with easy to use features
Although heavy, this product is a very sturdy, good quality piece and I did not worry about it tipping over when in use.
It actually came with an extra 'flexible beater' which I wasn't expecting which is designed for creaming and mixing soft ingredients. This beater, alongside the other three ( k-beater, whisk and dough hook) makes this products really versatile in terms of usage.
The different speed settings are really simple and easy to use and the machine as a whole takes a lot of the hard work out of mixing different foods for baking. The different attachments are also easy to fit and remove.
The safety features such as the automatic 'off' when the head is raised.
It looks really smart and I like that it matches my other 'cream' coloured appliances.
Although the instructions were easy to follow, I felt that the diagrams could have been displayed in more detail - particularly for the use of the splash guard. It wasn't entirely obvious how to fit the splash guard correctly, especially as it stays quite 'wobbly' once in place - I expected the fit to be better, or at least for the instructions to have explained this.
One of the reasons I didn't give this a full five stars is because it can be quite tricky to remove the bowl from the stand with contents inside without first removing the beater, otherwise it requires some manouvreing and care not to hit the side of the glass bowl with the beater - if the head of the machine could recline further it would help (unless this would of course make it topple over).
I am also a little bit confused as to the care instructions. The main manual says that the tools/beaters must be washed by hand and not in the dishwasher. It is not clear if the splashguard can go in the dishwasher, but the new 'flexible beater' states in its own manual that it can be washer OR put in the dishwasher.
There was no information in the manual with regards to the attachment outlet at the front of the machine, so I am unsure as to what this is for.
Overall, a really easy to use, good quality product which takes the hard work out of baking!
Pros: Ease to use, Good build quality, Looks goodCons: Noisy
