Summary: I've been saving for a while to have this ... and it was out of the box in a flash and a cake in the oven followed quickly. Wasnt overly noisy as per another review, no louder than my processor ... cakes were a dream.
Summary: Haven't used it a lot yet, but it made the first batch of bread OK. A real niggle is that paying extra for this model doesn't seem to buy you much. The instruction leaflet states that all Chef models have the same mixture capacity, regardless of motor power.
Summary: In the week or two that we have had our Kenwood we have not been disappointed about the build or quality of this machine. It was infuriating to see it left by the the courier Yodel, on our doorstep in the rain, without anyone having signed for it, so black marks to them - Yodel seemed unconcerned...
Summary: I know I have let womankind down in a way - I ASKED for a Kenwood Chef for my birthday! It is wonderful, I made a great fruit cake and it had no problem mixing it all. The result (my family tell me) was an amazing cake.
Summary: Ater the motor burnt out on the previous Kenwood (used for too much bread dough mixing) we thought we'd get by with a handheld blender/whisk. It was a disapointment, with the whisk too puny to mix cake, and a blender attachment that had to be used with care or it splattered everything with soup.
Summary: The KMC560 is alot quieter than I remember my Mothers old Kenwood Chef was, looks good, and does a really good job of kneading dough (alot easyer than doing it by hand thats for sure) the machine is well made, simple to use, and of course there are lots of attachments to buy if you want them.
Summary: it arrived in good time and in good condition its quality is like no other you certainly get what you pay for i made a cake as soon as it was unpacked it mixes every single ingredient brilliant the best tasting cakes i have made well don to kenwood
Summary: This mixer is brilliant and at a price that can't be beat. I make cakes as a part time endeavor. I used to use a handheld mixer to bske with but they kept on breaking on me. My wife said 'why not buy a proper mixer' but i knew they were expensive.
Summary: The foodmixer was purchased primarily to knead bread, hence that is why I had the more powerful model, hopefully my wife will also use it to make cakes. The accessories list seems enormous but very expensive.
