Summary: I chose this model as I wanted something of a reasonable size and power that I could use mostly to make pastry - it does this really well. I already had a liquidiser so dont use that but the chopping discs are useful too although sometimes its quicker to just use a knife cos of all the washing up with the mixer. It looks nice too.
Summary: Lacking in kitchen surface space I decided to go for a compact processor. The only thing Kenwood shrunk was the dimensions. This seems to cope equally as well with every task as it's bigger counterparts. Clearly it is a compact when it comes to capacity but that really has never. Limited my enthusiasm for this little powerhouse. On a couple of occasions I have had to empty it once and process the rest of the batch...
Summary: The main unit is a little small, but this is not important as the motor is clearly not up to the task of anything. I have used this very little, and when trying to make some bread crumbs (i.e. nothing it shouldn't be able to cope with) it died. This fault seems to be pretty common and so I would not buy this product.
Summary: Displayed more pictures on the advert than what you get in the box, when you get it a little note inside saying , it now does not come with a spatula. States it comes with a cook book and it does not.
Summary: It's a beautiful appliance and it's performance is adequate to ones who give it a moderate use. For a more intense usage it just looks to fragile. The smell of burning unfortunately is persistent. :( But not all is bad: It has a nice range of accessories, it's very compact and it's a good value for money. Ideal to cook for 2. No regrets here for buying this item.
Summary: The Kenwood brand has gone down market with this model,the main reason why bought this product is to blend fruits. The first it was used there was a smell of burning I put this down to being new,but it still make me feel as if it would catch afire or blowup. the ordeal was soon over, it was a relief to switch off and that the smoothie didn't taste of burning.
