If true this is a great deal!
Thanks for posting, I've added the price & retailer to your deals title.
Don't know a great deal about food processors, but how does this one compare to this?

Well the deal posted isnt actually a food processor but rather a mixer, whereas your groupon is a food processor.
That's a great price!

£30 cheaper than it usually is when 'on offer', like when I bought one around last Christmas.

Not a bad machine, but my wife still prefers her Magimix 4200 processor for the stuff that she makes [mainly cupcakes and cakes etc] She says it gives much smoother results???

As mentioned in the original post..........
Not sure which is the better buy, this or the Grundig UM9140:

Looks pretty well made, good reviews, takes all the kitchenaid accessories.

Pretty low power though.
The grundig looks good, trying my local now for a Kenwood
Got one of these a few months ago and find it never makes good cakes, really easy to overmix & doesn't ever seem to reach the bottom of the bowl no matter how much I adjust the attachments.
End up going back to my £4 hand mixer every time

You need a better model then, like the 1400w models, more headroom to prevent overheating, with presumably better gearing! ...ours is fine (KM010) & is used daily for bread & the like, using many of the accy's such as grinder, sausage machine on the other outlets.
1000w is fine for general use but for frequent bakers & those putting it through "kitchen hell" need to rest their machine from overheating whatever the power, all things need to cool including plastic / metal gearings.

Did you not have the silicone attachment?

if not reaching the bottom of the bowl there is an adjuster, take a gander at your manual.

I don't think you can really compare power as they're geared totally differently. The Grundig is direct drive.
Just wanted to say my parents have had their kenwood one of these for over 30 years.

Yeah that's what I was saying, I've adjusted the attachments down using the spanner supplied, it still seems to leave flour/sugar, etc right at the bottom. Maybe I should use the flexible beater instead of the k beater

I'd say that "power" is a figure that can be abused just as much as "megapixels" in order to dupe the uninformed customer who thinks that bigger must be better. This is the input power - what it takes from the mains - which can be very different from the actual useful power available. It's all down to the motor efficiency, and the sad thing is that it's very cheap to make a very inefficient motor which behaves like a small fan heater, producing a lot of heat (easily dissipated with the fan on the motor shaft) but not much useful mechanical output. So when appealing to a market of ignorant customers, it is in the manufacturer's interest to make the appliance as inefficient as possible!

If it has an *induction* motor it is likely to be much more efficient and will also be much quieter.

Once again: do not be fooled by "power rating".

Unfortunately that statement only has any significance if the brand means anything, which, nowadays, they don't. This is not the same machine your parents bought thirty years ago.

i have used it to make pavlova and some "millies"cookies, all came out exactly as they should,all attachments worked well and didnt leave any residue at the bottom of the bowl.Top job i think:)

thanks for the info pibpob... how do you suggest we go about buying a mixer?.... since the power rating doesnt decide and neither the brand names so its difficult choosing from the range available... I want to buy one since long now and really cant decide on any among the affordable range of under £250... the technical details provided under the mixers do not specify which motor they are using

I know this is much cheaper but... if you have your heart set on a Kitchenaid, keep saving.
Thanks for the tip-off - my other half just got one from the Sheffield store.

By reading reviews, if necessary asking for clarification if such mechanisms exist (eg on Amazon). You may be able to find manuals online which will give full specifications, or you could ask the manufacturer's UK office. A cursory glance at the Grundig one looks like it's reviewed highly and camelcamelcamel shows that the price has tumbled, although you should of course check for other prices elsewhere on the web. Of course it must also match your requirements - no point in getting millions of accessories you will never use, or buying one just because it does something well which you're not likely to use it for.

And another tip: always completely ignore "RRP" and "was" prices, both of which are terms of marketing abuse - the only valid comparison is with how much it's available for elsewhere.
thanks pibpob... didnt think of chking manuals

cheapest i've seen is £218 but its used,new is around £230 ish, so i think its a good deal:)
managed to get one put by for me, bit of a drive tbh but its a good price.
My local store was kind enough to get one transferred in from another store for me. Had to pay upfront and should be ready to collect by the end of the week.
oh really, thats kind of them wonder if mine would do it for me as its a fair trip to make for me tomorrow. What did you just ask them or did they offer?

can i ask what store did this for you.

thanks

My wife has the Grundig. She's an aesthete as well as a baker and think the Grundig looks better than the Kitchenaids in John Lewis. It works well too. If you want a Kenwood, frankly, I would buy a virtually unused second hand, unwanted wedding present top of the range model, which are quite easy to pick up for less than £100.
can you say where you can pick up the top of the range kenwoods mentioned for under £100 please
Look on gumtree, ebay, charity shops or your local paper. Mixers are a classic wedding gift or vanity purchase and are often unused or used once or twice. I recently picked up a vintage chef with liquidiser and nearly £200 of attachments for £50. It was boxed. The older chefs are better than the new ones. I picked up that one on Gumtree.
Does anyone know if there is stock in stores? Don't want to take trip down only for it to be a waste of journey
Just bought the last 1 on display in my local store. Need 2 check all parts are there!
Just picked up a display item here too. Everything as should be and got it for a tenner less at 119.97!
