Q & As

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 12 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Exactly what I needed Really good size ,does exactly what Inwanted and excellent value compared to other mixers on the market 23 June 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Glad I got it! Spent ages trying to find a replacement for my old broken hand mixer and procrastinated over this purchase for a long time until I realised I had to make a birthday cake. The cake turned out very well and I was pleased that this mini mixer was so easy to use and easy to clean afterwards. Have used it a lot since and find the little stand and bowl very useful so I don't have to hold the mixer all the time and the bowl cover saves you mixing in a cloud of flour or icing sugar dust. Very happy with the purchase. 23 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best buy, highly recommended My husband bought this for me as I have shoulder problems and I've been amazed at how excellent it is. The rotating bowl works well and you barely need to scrape it down. It mixes really well, copes with 6 egg mixtures (although I haven't made a really heavy Christmas cake yet) and I like the way you can detach the hand mixer. I've used my daughter in law's Kitchenaid and this seems just as good for a fraction of the price, and it's light and small enough to put away in a cupboard, unlike the Kitchenaid. 12 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by brilliant mixer Bought this, to replace my old one. Read reviews before purchasing, and being a Kenwood I knew it would be good. Only used it for cakes so far, and they come out delicious. Machine is really easy to use, and easy to clean. The plastic guard and rotating bowl is a bonus.......... If you are looking for a new mixer....can't go wrong with this one. 24 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it I bought this to replace a much older Chefette, at least 35years, which gave up the ghost at last. This mixer is a neat size and doesn't take up much room in the cupboard. It is very like the older one but quieter and has a bigger selection of speeds. I have made quite a few cakes since its arrival, most by the all in one method and it copes admirably. Egg whites whip up on their own whilst I am doing something else, whole eggs and sugar whip very quickly. I prefer the metal bowl to the older plastic one, it is bigger and scrapes much easier because of the better rounded shape. I have not yet tried the dough hooks so cannot comment on them. I also haven't had occasion to use the splash shield but can see that it could be useful when using icing sugar I would recommend this product 18 November 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Kenwood Chefette Brilliant product and great to have the adaptability of using it as a hand mixer. Also the splash cover is great when using icing sugar. 18 November 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by You won't regret this.... Having tire of fancy kitchen gadgets that comes with endless attachments which I don't need and takes ages to clean up, I've decided to start shopping for mini replacements/options. Whilst I bought this mainly for the dual hand/stand option and the simplicity of the design, I was really happy to find that the bowl rotates when used with stand, the whisks are well placed to mix effectively and when stowing it away, you can wrap the cord neatly at the end of the mixer! I like using the steel bowl for my main cake mix, and if I need to whip cream or egg whites, the whisks comes off easily and cleaned, re attached and I hand hold the mixer to do the whipping in a separate bowl. Since buying this, I've been baking 2-3 times/week, my kitchen worktop is clear of clutter as everything is easily washed and stowed away in cupboards. Bye bye big gadgets.... ( Next stop: a hand blender, "mini" replacement for my massive food processor which sits in my cupboard happily as I rather chop manually than bring it out and deal with the washing up) 15 October 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Kenwood mixer I am very happy with this mixer, I was undecided which one to buy and I must say very happy with it. The bowl is a good size and mixers go right to the bottom also can be used as a hand held which is handy for smaller mixers. Have not used dough hooks yet but overall I am very pleased with my purchase. It also fits in my cupboard as I have limited space on the side. 17 June 2014
