The main new feature is the induction plate under the bowl, which allow you to apply heat up to 140C. The unit is also has more electronics than the Major, with a digital display which functions as a timer and a temperature readout.
The temperature is controlled by a knob on the front, which clicks round in 2-3 degree C increments. Although that's not terribly accurate in itself, the temperature readout and the thermostatic control is spot on, so once you get it to the right temp it will stay there. It's only rated to +/- 5C but I tested it with a semi-pro RayTemp digital thermometer and it was within 1C of the displayed temperature. This is great as one of my main uses is as an improvised sous vide - fill the bowl with water, put meat or fish with a little marinade or olive oil in a ziplock bag, submerge it in the water to force out the air and seal it. Although there's no active circulation I've found it works very well just through convection.
Also new is a pulse button, and a 'fold' button which turns the mixer once round, although I can't say I've every used that one. There are also some extra plastic covers to keep steam in the bowl and away from the mechanism as well, as a few sensors to check everthing is ok.Read more ›
It is incredibly solidly made (and the Titanium chef is pretty solid already). The hooks, beaters etc are extremely solid and hefty, and superlatively well designed. The bread hook, for example, is much more efficient than my previous one (which was also cast stainless steel). Don't forget to adjust the height of all the attachments, this is extremely important. To do this you use the provided spanner to loosen the nut at the top and then turn the shaft counterclockwise to lower it. Once you have an appropriate height you just tighten up the nut again. The bread hook was so stiff that my husband had to put it in a vice to undo it (they say in the instruction manual that it 'is factory set and shouldn't require adjustment' but that's only true if you bake large quantities. I wanted to be able to knead as little as 1 1/2 cups of flour, and once the height has been adjusted this is no problem. Same with 2 egg whites, etc. The best height for the hook is about 2mm from the bottom of the bowl. For the K beater, stirrer and whisk, barely touching the bottom. For the silicone beater, touching lightly.
It creams small or large quantities of butter and sugar efficiently and very fast, much better than any of my previous machines.Read more ›
So I placed this Kenwood Cooking Chef next to the old Kenwood KM701A in our tiny and now congested kitchen. Even before understanding the heating aspect or the "cooking" aspect of this new mixer. My wife absolutely loved it. She even described it as being beautiful. She went on about how all the attachments looked so stable, solid and reliable, being made of cast or forged stainless steel! She was now convincing me that this is the machine to keep. We sold off the KitchenAid, which was already packed back in its box for a week now. It had a lot of demand and it sold for nearly the price I bought it for.Read more ›

For several years I had an old Kenwood 701A that was over 40 years old which I bought on eBay. My wife loved this machine and was hugely opposed to any idea of an upgrade. Read morePublished on 21 Mar. 2013 by SomersetDeepak
