    Kenwood is king forget the fashionable pretenders!

    5/5
    Yes, it may not be as pretty as other mixers. Yes, it does not sit on your counter looking like a showpiece as other mixers do. But, let's remember that we don't buy mixers for those reasons. We buy mixers to mix, primarily for mixing cake/bread ingredients. Having had the pleasure of using other brands both myself and in friends/family kitchens over several years (early 40s) I always return to Kenwood! Kenwood is superior in every sense. I have never been disappointed at any point with their mixers. They are efficient, strong and amazing mixers. I love watching the mixer effortlessly cream the sugar and butter to a lighter fluffy mix and then slowly add my eggs. The mixing is perfect with no curdling. (This, of course could be down to my own skills! Unlikely, but thought I'd throw that out there!) I make large birthday cakes to order (10 eggs usually per individual cake that depending on opulence of request I'll need to make a few to build) hence, trying so many mixers! My other mixers have struggled with these large quantities and I decided needed a bigger bowl. Having had a horrendously disappointing experience with the other BrAnd I didn't even look at their bigger bowl version, it HAD to be kenwood. I should never have allowed my frivolous fashionable (that'll look amazing on my worktop) side to choose at any point in my past. Forever scraping the side to make sure whole thing was mixed. No planetary mixing action there! My cousin was exhilarated to accept my offcast but equally disappointed as time came to pass. It eventually ended up with my mother, who has always mixed my hand and with her age creeping higher was glad of the help without experiencing the disappointed feeling. I should have given it to her first in retrospect. I am saying Kenwood is King: - Powerful - Effective mixing - Light and airy mixtures produced - Superior cakes produced - Had some grudging compliments from people, but cakes were so good they would have seemed pretty to have said anything else. - The planetary motion catches every grain of sugar in the bowl. - Large bowl = easier life for large batches - Even easier to do the small volumes for cupcakes if it a child's party for example (cookie monster cupcakes are very popular) but not always children's parties popular with women's birthdays too! I love baking and as you are investing a lot of money always choose substance over style. Yes, I know the GBBO used the other brand. If I'm being honest that it what sealed my decision before. But, save yourself the disappointed feeling. I've been around the houses brand wise and I am NEVER moving away from Kenwood again. I am forever buying, trying and then selling to try another brand. I am getting older and need to settle and just get on with baking as it is my bread and butter. The only con was it's weight, but mixers are heavy. All mixers are heavy, apart from the small hand mixers but they are not even in the same book as stand mixers for baking. So, I didn't like the weight. The only downside I found. But, they are heavy and that is it. No point in being grumpy about it as every brands mixer is heavy. You just need to get on with it! I am doing that now and if anyone asks me now, tell me cake lady what should I get? 'Kenwood, large XL if you are doing bigger cakes and even if you're not it's still an amazing mixer. Buy Kenwood, they are King'.

    Looks great and does the job perfectly!

    Im very pleased with this Kenwood Stand Mixer and glad I didnt go for the Kitchen Aid. Despite this machine having a huge bowl it looks suprisingly compact, pushed back on my worktop and I particularly like its clean lines and as it is white it doesn't stand out too much! It's not too heavy, making it easy to pick up and move out for use, feels well made and is very easy to use without the need for fiddly controls. The balloon whisk is brilliant and Ive mixed batter and bread dough using both the K and the dough attachments and had excellent results. It comes with a clear plastic bowl cover to stop splatters and there is a lidded part through which liquids etc can be added which is useful. There are lots of fancy attachments including pasta cutters, a mincer, ice cream maker, blender etc that can be purchased separately so I know this machine can do pretty much everything should I need it to. Only slight negative is the clever spatula tool that came with it which isn't quite long enough to reach the bottom of the bowl but I have once that does anyway. Other than that I love it!

    Value for money

    5/5
    I’ve bought this machine mainly for doughs. After a week of baking I can say that it’s very powerful and does what it says on the tin! Very happy with my purchase!

    An excellent kitchen machine

    5/5
    The Kenwood KVL4100W food mixer is an excellent mixer. I have used quite a few times since it arrived last week as I was so impressed with it. Due to the 1000 Watt motor it has plenty of power to mix successfully especially the dough hook which has got me back into bread making. I can only recommend the mixer,

    Baking made easy

    I’ve been thinking of purchasing a mixer for a while andI decided on purchasing the Kenwood chef XL after looking at other mixers and reading reviews, yes there were others that did have few more reviews but I’ve had Kenwood in the past and been happy with their products, my main reason for purchasing this mixer is I’ve always wanted to make my own bread but unable to knead the mixture as I have trouble with pain in my fingers and them going into cramps , but with this machine the mixture is mixed and kneaded ready for it’s first rise in a matter of minutes , I’ve also done cakes , buns with no effort needed, it is also so easy to clean after use. I am Very happy with my purchase (and so is other half as he gets to eat the buns lol)

    Excellent mixer

    5/5
    Kenwood Chef is renowned for lasting years and I think this will do exactly that. Bought the XL in case it’s ever needed but I suspect the standard one would have been fine as this looks massive.

    Amazing all-rounder food mixer!

    5/5
    This food mixer really is the ultimate all-rounder for any mixing needs! The appearance is lovely and it fits into my kitchen well with the sleek white and silver design. It comes with four accessories and these are super easy to fit with a simple turn motion. There’s also 20+ further attachments that can be bought separately! The variable speed is great and even at its fastest setting, the mixer is extremely quiet and mess-free. It looks great, is really heavy duty and sturdy and I’d highly recommend this to anyone looking for a really good mixer that will last!

    Wicked
