Good value for the price.

After 30 plus years of using a Kenwood chef it got too heavy to manage so I was pleasd to find this smaller lighter mixer and certainly a lot cheaper. The pros : light, smaller worktop footprint, same range of blades and good size bowl.
cons: motor wattage is smaller, a tendency to throw pastry mix out of the bowl. Never having had reason to use a lid before I had a fast learning curve. Any speed over 2 and it was out of control. I've made a 4 egg cake mix for 2x 2lb loaf tins and that was fine but the pastry made with the K beater needs to be worked on, probably a change of fat to something like Trex which will combine quicker, but nice to be making my own pastry again. The dough hook I haven't used because I no longer make bread but I think it would struggle with anything but a small loiaf. Overall nuce to have a Kenwood again.
