My Kenwood mixer arrived courtesy of a seller on Ebay. All it had was a bowl and a K beater, no instruction book. I bought a new balloon whisk and a dough hook but what next.

In this book there is a list of basic tools and then a page with small illustrations of each attachment. The next page is a list of tools and attachments plus the page numbers where you will find recipes for each attachment.

I have to admit that I have bought vintage and new attachments with different part numbers from this list and apart from a cream maker which would only fit upside down (it was for a A701 and my mixer is an A901) luckily I have not bought any which do not fit.

The book first of all shows the K beater and other two tools and gives you recipes based on the use of them such as cakes and bread etc.

It then moves on to the Liquidiser, hints on use and recipes, soups, sauces etc.

Each attachment in turn is expained and recipes which use that attachment are shown.

The book even covers attachments that fit on to attachments. Such as the Fine Grater attachment that fits on to the Mincer attachments.

It falls between the ideas of an instruction book and a cookbook.

If you have an instruction book and the instructional leaflets for various attachments you probably won't need this book but I am finding it very useful.

This book has relatively little to offer if you only have the basic Chef and standard tools. But if you have some of the extra accessories(or are thinking about buying them) then this would be useful. It has a chapter for each type of accessory(mincer, pasta maker, grinder, etc)
As an introduction to the tools it's good, as a "Complete Cookbook" it falls far short.

This book may be quite old now, but it is helpful in getting to grips with the use of and various attachments for the Kenwwood Chef. It does help you to get the best from the machine, even if some of the recipes are a bit dated now. We have found it useful and the recipes do give you some ideas for things to try and experiment with - which is part of the fun of preparing and cooking meals. Obviously, models have moved on since this book was written and some details will no longer be applicable (as with our KMC010 titanium), but there are some useful hints and tips to give a bit of guidance. The new models do come with a cookbook and some rather sparse instructions, but we found this older publication a useful back up.

Lets face it, Kenwood are not cheap pieces of kitchen equipment and anything that helps to get the best out of them is really useful for a new owner (and to justify the expense of buying a Kenwood!!) Just find a decent, low priced copy.

We wanted an up-to-date cookbook that specifically referred to our Kenwood Major. We had a 1970's cookbook that had come with our earlier CHEF we bought back then. This new book covers the new appliances/attachments available with more current recipes. We are very pleased with it and the speed it reached us. Thank you to the supplier and thank you Amazon!

This is a very good cookbook because it tells you which whisks to use and which speeds to use. I am a new Kenwood chef user so I was struggling to get it right with a regular cookbook. Delivery was very quick and I would recommend this book to all Kenwood Chef ownwes.

Brought for a neighbour she has told us it is a good cookbook she has a Kenwood Chef and wants to make soups etc so this book has helped her to do just that. We would recommend this book to others who wish to make various dishes regarding their Kenwood Chef.

This cookbook has a good number of recipes with easy to read instructions. The information gives you precise methods so you will be able to perfect a various range of meal, but also be able to adapt them to your own needs.
