For what it may be worth, Which? rates the KMX754 ahead of the 750. Perhaps it's the glass bowl instead of the aluminium-coated one that makes the difference. Not that I treat Which? reviews as gospel, these days, sadly. They say of the 754: 80% Brilliant at kneading, whisking and mixing, great at whipping cream, quiet, dishwasher-safe, easy to use But heavy glass bowl And of the 750: 73% Whisks and whips well, excellent at kneading, mixes cake batter well, nice and light (they mean the bowl), easy to use But quite heavy, tricky to attach splashguard, not great for buttercream https://www.which.co.uk/reviews/stand-mixers/article/recommendations/which-best-buy-stand-mixers if you're a member
Excellent news. Thank you. I made the mistake of switching from a Chef to a Sage mixer a few years ago. The beaters don't reach the bottom of the bowl and can't be adjusted. Hopeless. I just wish Kenwood were still British owned and made. I believe they're now owned by De'Longhi, with products made in China. I try not to do anything to support the Chinese economy, given all the wrongs China is perpetrating in the world. KitchenAid is still US owned and made, I believe, which makes them tempting.
Ah nuts, I paid more a month ago for the 760 which is the same specs but comes in stupid colours. This would have suited a whole lot better.
The whisk/k-beater knocks against the bottom of the bowl OR the whisk/k-beater isn’t reaching the ingredients in the bottom of the bowl. What should I do?You need to adjust the height of the bowl tool. With the mixer switched off, insert the beater or whisk and lower the mixer head. Check the clearance between the tool and the bottom of the bowl. Ideally the tool should be almost touching the bottom of the bowl. If the clearance needs to be adjusted, raise the mixer head and remove the tool. Using a suitable spanner loosen the nut sufficiently to allow adjustment of the shaft. To lower the tool closer to the bottom of the bowl, turn the tool shaft anti-clockwise. To raise the tool away from the bottom of the bowl turn the shaft clockwise. Tighten the nut. Fit the tool to the mixer and lower the mixer head. Check its position (see point 1). Repeat the above steps as necessary until the tool is set correctly. Once this is achieved tighten the nut securely. No adjustment of the dough hook is necessary
Anyone know if the bowl tools can be adjusted in length, as with the Chef, to get as close a fit as possible to the bowl?
