View Full Version : Shopping for a kenwood mixer

I am shopping for Kenwood mixer for my wife who's picking up on her baking :D . I'm hoping whether any baking experts here can help me out, we are probably looking at the Kenwood Chef models, but there seems to be a few versions, how do you decide which model to go for?

Sorry if this is a beginner question, I'm just in charge of researching and paying :o , & I know nuts about baking, so hoping to get some help.

Many thanks in advance...

Recommend the Chef model. The Major model is the bigger sized brother for larger quantity cake or dough mixtures.

There's also variants of these models which can cost more. Full cast metal alloy body and metal bowl will cost more. The lesser ones have more plastic parts and plastic bowl. They're just as lasting, not to worry..all depends on how much you'd like to spend.

So difficult to decide or to understand.

Kenwood mixer km001 1000W with only 4.6 liter bowl, sufficient to withstand beating bread dough? RM$2,599 The bowl looks pretty small.

Kenwood mixer km005 1200W with 6.7 liter bowl, can it make small cake of 5 eggs 300g flour? RM$3,499. Heavy stainless steel. Is this one too noisy? It looks great, heavier than the other two.

Kenwood km750 900W RM2,899 with 6.7 liter bowl, half stainless steel, can this one withstand beating bread dough too?

I would like to get the Km005 for bread dough making, but am worried it could not beat a 5 eggs cake 300g flour.
Can anyone give me some advise which of this three is the better? :confused:
