Looks a bit like a kitchen aid but a LOT cheaper! Seems like a good price to me. They have it in other colours too.

Good price + quidco

Hot

We have one already but it's great so heat from me.

Now I am confused... think I will be buying one of these mixer things for my wife for Christmas.

She only bakes occasionally so the KitchenAid would be complete overkill. How does this mixer stack up against the Kenwood Chef (331 version that is currently on offer in Currys here (http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/kenwood-chef-classic-km331-169-currys-1723633).

I think she would prefer the look of this but my main questions are:

Is it built to last?
Is the 400w vs 800w motor a big deal?
Am I right in thinking you cant use the other kenwood attachments (grinder etc.) with this model?

I know she would much prefer the look of this, just trying to be practical!

Not sure if this is any help:

this is interesting about the adjustement:
To me the main problem was that the beater just wasn't touching the bottom of the bowl, hence why everything on the bottom wasn't being mixed in. After trolling on the Kenwood site I realised that you can actually adjust the beater height by moving the screw head just near where the fitting pops in. I have played around with this and it seems to have fixed the problem with the beater now touching the bottom and sides! I am amazed why this isn't correctly fitted like this in the first place? Needless to say it is now doing what it is supposed to do - mix cakes!

If she's an occasional baker/cook then the 400w will suffice but it's like a washing machine with a small spin rpm, it's slower, less efficient and with heavier mixes, useless...

I was hoping I might get some answers to these questions myself! It seems like a really good price and I've found some great reviews on amazon. Decisions decisions......

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!

My folks have had this for 7 - 8 and its still going strong, hot from me!

I'm probably wrong - but...

If this mixer is "direct drive" like the kitchen-aids... then the motor is in the top of the mixer, and drives the attachment more...."directly".

I don't quite get what kitchen-aid mean by "direct drive" but I'm guessing there's less transmission loss, therefore they don't need large Watts to churn the mixes.

Alternatively, I guess other mixers have the motor housed in the base, and use pullies / universal joints (or some other magic) to drive the power around to the attachments.

I'm just speculating, I prefer just eating cake.....

Poor mans KitchenAid.

Well my poor mans kitchen aid has been going strong for 3 yrs, very happy and cracking deal!

You cannot beat the Chef.

you can with a baseball bat.

Looks good,

Great buy Ive been looking for one of these.

You can get an extra £10 off with O2 Priority Moments

I bought the Kenwood KM280 reduced from £199 to £79 two days ago in store at Sainsburys, their website stills shows it as £129. It was a genuine orange ticket £120 reduction, in plain white and not at all one of the stylish mixers that abound currently but it is excellent quality and worth £79 all day long, it even included a blender attachment, 900w motor etc.

Check out the larger Sainsburys you might get lucky too.
