Wonderful little machine, easy to store and has usefull onboard holder for blades. Runs quietly and smoothly.
I brought this product for myself about a month ago.
I have been used to mixing with a wooden spoon in the first years of my baking, then my sister in law brought me a cheap mixer from Asda, it was a 250W.
This mixer, after a few years of use, became grubby, but I certainly got my moneys worth.
So I needed it to be replaced and had been researching for about 2 months.
Points to bear in mind when buying a new mixer:
1) "Check the current Watt of your current mixer" - As a very experienced baker, I feel that a lot of the taste, success and rising of a cake is due to the speed and technique of the mixing. So I chose this Kenwood one as it is also 250W. My cakes still turn out the same as before :)
2) Looks and style are certainly not everything. This Kenwood one doesn't look a lot at all. Its a bit of an ugly duckling. So you might consider a Dualit one. Not only are they 500W, and for me that is double the speed I am use too, but the reviews all over the internet are hit and miss. This Kenwood mixer actually proved to have a hell of a lot more good and positive reviews than the Dualit ones.
3) Really make sure you read reviews and pay attention to the negative ones as well as the positive ones.
At the end of the day this mixer is not expensive at all and you can't faulter that.
Hope this helps ;)
12 August 2012:
Review update...this mixer is still going strong, no problems at all.
The switch is poor, motor too noisy and the numbers on the switch rubbed off on the 2nd use. I am SO disappointed in Kenwood, I think they have lost their quality. Don't buy this machine, it is cheaply built.
It has however been making a grinding noise the past few uses, and today it gave up. Upon opening the mixer casing(which is very easy to do) I found that the beater gears, which are plastic had worn out. You can however find replacement parts on the net for about 5 pounds including postage. Replacement is going to be a very simple job, then I can hopefully look forward to another few years of use.
the replacement gears lasted about a week as they weren't the same quality as the originals and ground themselves to nothing. I now just use a plain old whisk!
Today, however, after fairly modest use, the mixer broke. When it was taken apart it was apparent that this cheaply-made mixer was not built to last - the cog wheels which turn the beaters were made of plastic and the worm thread connector (metal) had just chewed them away until they couldn't turn.
I would never buy another Kenwood after this experience.

Bought this to replace an ancient Kenwood hand mixer which funnily enough is almost the same as this one but not shiny chrome. Read morePublished 5 months ago by M. Frow
