Kenwood k-Mix My Favourite Kitchen Gadget

I am sharing with you one of my favourite kitchen gadgets - my Kenwood k-Mix Fire Cracker. For years I made my cakes by hand or using a small electric hand whisk. Nothing wrong with a hand whisk, I still use mine for those smaller bakes. But they do not cope well with large batches of cake batter or butter cream. So 2 years ago I took the decision to invest in a kitchen mixer.

k-Mix verses KitchenAid?

Like many people looking to buy a new kitchen mixer I faced the Kenwood vs KitchenAid dilemma. Both machines are expensive, although budget was not issue I had money set aside specifically for a new mixer. I researched the two brands, and came to the conclusion there really is not that much difference between them. They both look great, come in a range of colours, virtually the same speed. Although the k-Mix is lighter in weight.

For me it came down to the fact that I am a home baker, I bake frequently but not every day.  I have a petite frame so weight was important. It needed to be easy to pull forward to the front of the kitchen work surface. I will be honest, I am also sensible with my money, although some in the family may use another term for this - I prefer sensible. Although I had the money, I just could not bring myself to pay the extra for the KitchenAid when I knew the k-Mix would do the same task. 

I love my K-Mix! 

  • I now bake lovely dough based recipes, the dough hook is fabulous. 
  • Big cake mixes - not a problem. 
  • All in one recipes - even better. 
  • Batches of light fluffy butter cream - quick and easy. 
  • A recipe that needs you to mix for 10 minutes, I do not need to hold the mixer I can step away to get ingredients or just to do a happy dance!

So there you have it my K-Mix is my favourite kitchen gadget. Do you have a favourite kitchen gadget?

  2. I've been looking for a mixer, I really like the look of this one.
    I don't have a favourite kitchen gadget at the moment, I'm looking to upgrade everything as I'm starting to cook fresh and from scratch

  3. I really want to invest in something like this but I don't think I bake enough! Sounds like an amazing addition to your kitchen! xo


  4. I got one of those for my 30th birthday and I LOVE it! I haven't done any dough recipes though so I must have a go.


I really do appreciate you leaving me a comment, and I enjoy reading them all.
