Review: Kenwood kMix KMX50 Stand Mixer


Kenwood have been making kitchen machines for over 50 years and most of us have grown up with our mothers or grandmothers baking with a Kenwood Chef.

The Kenwood Chef’s have proved themselves time and again with many people still using the same one 10, 20, even 30 years later. Kenwood now have the KMX stand mixer in their range which are also proving to be just as good.

They are built to last, perform beautifully, and look great. It comes with the main stainless steel or glass mixing bowl, depending on which colour you buy, and 4 bowl tools – K beater, balloon whisk, dough hook, and the new flexi beater.

The KMX machines can be used for a multitude of baking needs and has a slow speed outlet for additional attachments such as a food grinder and pasta cutters.

Don't be put off by the fact these have only a 500w motor compared to the Chef’s which have from 800w upwards as this machine has a different drive system and no high speed outlet so 500w is more than enough.

The KMX machines have a great retro look to them and come in a number of different colours – both bold and striped – and will fit into almost any kitchen design and it’s the sort of machine you will want to keep on display rather than hiding away in a cupboard.

The KMX stand mixer, along with its easy of use, great looks, and available accessories, also has a whole range of other items to match such as kettles, toasters, hand mixers, blenders, and hand blenders. These are only available in certain colours though so do check before purchase if you want them all to go together!

Although not as versatile as a Kenwood Chef, no high speed outlet and not as many attachments currently available, its performance, style, and matching accessories more than make up for this.
