For the price it's a great mixer. Only downside is it's noisy

Have one of these & love it to bits. Heat added

Mine arrived last night... Looking forward to its first beating.

just saw on Saturday kitchen, looks flimsy

how do these compare to kenwood pressarios

Rather than start a new thread, another option is to purchase this http://www.andrewjamesworldwide.com/UserControls/productIndividual.aspx?ProductID=291

Total is £92.69 Delivered but gets you the blender and meat grinder kits too

I have been toying with the idea of buying one of these, can anyone advise how this well unit works whilst mixing dough? My pizza and bread recipes use between 650g & 750g of flour.

I'm currently in the market for one of these tho I was hoping for a kenwood. They seem to need replacing after 30 years hard use, I can't imagine this would last anywhere near that long ... But it's a third of the price so 10 years might be about fair for the price??

mixer + delivery cheaper on amazon!!!!!!!

Have just bought the one with the mincer, hopefully it will be good enough for my modest use.
Will certainly put it through its paces before the warranty expires.
Nice post OP and Syzable for the alternative link

hi. cant do the reply thing...we just bought the kenwood from sainsbury's at £129. for my mum xmas gift. we ourselves bought the older model last year in feb for 80or 90 £.

how do you reply to someone specific comment?

Did you mean Kenwood Prospero? Not sure what pressarios are, but if it was a typo and you meant Prospero, I used to have one of those, recently replaced with a KMix. Looking at the pic of the Andrew James mixer, the mixing implements all look much bigger and sturdier than the prospero, the prospero's dough hook is very thin so doesnt make very good dough. Also the AJ machine has a much more powerful motor. I would say go for the AJ mixer personally, the prospero is quite hard to clean, and I never found it to be much good for cake mixes either. Hope that helps.

I've used mine to make pizza dough using 1kg of flour, mixed great. I'm really happy with mine.

Is it flimsy?? I'm thinking this might be a much cheaper alternative to a kenwood, was looking at spending £230 on the kmc570 which is down from £400 on amazon but can't help thinking that £92 for the full package is much more up Father Christmas' street!!

Wondering myself if the Kenwood is worth the extra or not!!!

Looking at the cost of attachments, I'm sorely tempted to go for the Ultimate 7 litre Food Mixer Package. Around £200 with the discount code. It even comes with a sausage maker!

Andrew James Ultimate 7 Litre Food Mixer Package

We use a Kenwood with some oomph (KM010) which is good & heavy, ..needs to be in order to remain stable when bashing large qty's in it's 4.6litre bowl.

The andrew james strikes us as very good value, is appearing to be quite heavy, though is that separate or the total package? as the glass blender (easier to clean) is a bonus, but bound to be heavy, which may affect the overall weights appearance.

The bowl is also larger than a kenwood (which is pretty capacious for most cooking requirements when batch baking)
The 1500W motor, depending on gearing is in the upper band of power for a mixer of this ilk.

You will (i'm sure) have to place a reassuring hand on top to keep it a bit more stable on the work top when working at high speed or hefting a loaf's worth of dough around (but that's normal)

What with the accy's it appears a inbetweener clone of the Kmix & the kitchenaid, which at this price for the full shebang we (as heavy users of our kenwood) would contemplate as a cheap but not 30yr workhorse.

We'd say go for it, get some good use out of it, grab a morrisons pork deal & try out the kebbe (sausage maker) which again looks a clone of the kenwood, they are slow but fun, check out the wifes sausage stuffer review here

for which you'll need some skins (from a place like weschenfelders) ...2 people & plenty of space, don't make the mistake of dishwashing your sausage maker attachment & have some greaseproof paper ready for storage after it's been cleaned & lightly oiled prior to storage, takes a few mins whilst cleaning up!

I'd be seriously tempted to give this deal a bash, get your kids understanding food (& possibly yourself)

As a Kenwood diehard, I doff my cap, value for sure ....HEAT

i have the kenwood prospero and have had no probs with it, does all the cake and dough mixes perfect for me.

you go to the right hand side of the comment box and will give you 4 options.....reply is the one you need to answer someone back.....btw did you buy the kenwood prospero?

Love mine

I have the larger model and it is brilliant for bread making using 3lb of flour. Not many mixers cope with this amount.

Ordered, great price and free delivery to NI.

Flimsy would definitely not be a word I'd use to describe it. The one in this post is the exact one I have. I have had it two years and use it at least once a week. It's a heavy mixer, sturdy, and the metal bowl is still as shiny as when I first got it and I use it a lot. It is removed with a twist. It moves up and down with a little push of the lever which makes it "free moving" and yes, if I was being picky, it is slightly noisy, but it's not an issue for me at all. I love it and always get comments about it from people who see it on my kitchen side.

Another thing you may find helpful - when I first got it, there was a fault with it and I called them to complain. They acted faultlessly. Sent me free returns label instantly, and sent me a brand new one out within days and even followed up with a phone call.

Hope that helps

Brilliant ordered for my daughter!thank you !have some heat!8)

I've had mine for a month or two - previous HUKD post for a slightly lower price. These mixers are heavy and that 1500w motor is really noisy, but I make 2kg of pizza dough at a time (enough for 8-10 30cm pizzas) and it's all done in about five minutes. I've made sourdough loaves and rolls, panettone, stollen and some light fruit bread (like an eggless panettone). All came out really well. But the biggest surprise was just how well it makes cakes - especially sponges. Made a 3-egg Victoria Sponge which was as light as you'd want it to be and tasted fabulous. I ummed and ahhed about getting a stand mixer but now, I wouldn't be without it.

BTW - found this online - if you like Mr Kipling Country Slices, these are even better. This recipe makes around 40-44 slices (about 20 slices per 30cm x 30cm baking tray).

Preheat oven to 180c (lower if you have a fan-assisted oven - I don't have one) and have at the ready two 30cm by 30cm shallow baking trays lined with greasproof paper/baking parchment.

Put 300g of softened unsalted butter and 300g of dark sugar (preferably muscavado) into the mixer and beat with the whisk attachment at speed 2 until light and fluffy. Add in four eggs, one at a time, and whisk in well (if the mix splits, add a tablespoon of flour to bring it back). Once the eggs are mixed in, add 300g of sifted plain flour,two teaspoons of baking powder, two teaspoons of mixed spice and a scant half teaspoon of salt. Use the spatula to scrape down the sides of the bowl and give it one last mix. Add in 250g of good quality mixed fruit, by hand, using the spatula in a figure-of-eight movement to keep the air in the mix. Divide equally between the two baking trays and bake in the centre of the oven for about 18-20 minutes. Don't overbake. Once a knife or skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean, take out of the oven, cool in the tray for five minutes and then slide out (holding the greasproof paper) on to a wire rack to cool completely. I use a pizza cutter to divide these up and do it as evenly as I can. The end ones from each tray look the least professional but you can scoff those as cook's treat.


Edit - Mr Kipling not Kiplng - and I forgot to add that when the tray bakes have cooled a little, sprinkle a generous amount of caster sugar all over the top of each tray before letting them cool completely.

Noisy and smelly.
Smells like the motor is gonna burn out at high speeds?!!!!
But otherwise so far so good.
Guess I will keep putting it through its paces.....watch this space...

hmmmm, not sounding too great then... a lot of 1 star reviews with speed … hmmmm, not sounding too great then... a lot of 1 star reviews with speed being an issue... May go for the more powerful 800w motor Kenwood Chef. Whilst I want something that looks good, its more important that it does the job it is supposed to!


she's not going to tell you to take it back because it doesn't have pansies on it!
buy the one that does the job better.

just an FYI..the code AJLUV13 still works so this deal is Active again...I just ordered one...
