Summary: I would recommend this mixer, everything turns out as it should do. It is well worth the cost because of the quality of it. I have had a Kenwood previously, my mother always used one too, I like the constant high standard of manufacture.
Summary: Very pleased with this machine and all of the attachments. The splash cover is a great addition especially when mixing royal icing, saves "dust" everywhere. It does make a bit of noise when on the go, so I place the mixer on a towel if I'm baking late at night. It lives on the worktop and so it is used and loved!
Summary: I purchased this for two reasons one was because my Prospero had broken and secondly because it was a very good price. Since I have had this I have used it extensively, does everything I expected it to do. It site said it had slight cosmetic damage, that's about right, two small scratches and £120 cheaper than a major retailer.
Summary: Sorry to say after my 40 year old machine stopped working,decided to purchase another one. Motor poor strength. Materials no where near as solid as 'old one' Will not purchase Kenwood machine again. Called customer service to complain of poor performance of motor and return item . I was referred to the local repair agent. I have therefore taken it no further after such poor customer communication.
