I had always looked at this mixer with total envy. the colours were amazing but especially the red one as I have always somehow had red in my kitchen although went totally red again recently. These mixers always looked so solid and well made, even better close up (saw one in a store once and fell in love!) Unfortunately price stopped me getting it there and then and so to dream. Anyway recently someone gave me a Kenwood chef for a gift and its really nice to use and makes everything so easy and effortless. I have been won over. I am very impressed with my Kenwood and love it to bits. Its not glossy red or as quirky as the Kitchenaid but is brilliant. I am glad you enjoy your Kitchenaid, and you seem very pleased with it and also have had a Kenwood too so you know how good they are too. Have many happy hours with it, I know I will with my Kenwood.
Thank you for your great review.
