This piece of kit would look at home in the most stylish kitchens. Its design combines the original Kenwood mixers from the 50s with a luxe, modern, chrome casing.

The shiny steel attachments are quality, and can go in the dishwasher. The signature K mixer/beater does a fantastic job of scraping every last bit of cake mix from the sides of the bowl. That’s also down to the planetary action of the machine, which turns the socket and beater in different directions to pull ingredients towards the centre of the bowl.

Although the bowl has a 5-litre capacity, whisking smaller amounts (for example, one egg) shouldn’t be a problem as the attachments can be ‘unwound’ slightly to ensure the very bottom of the bowl can be reached.

As with the KitchenAid range, there’s an impressive selection of supplementary attachments on offer, the pasta accessories being a particularly good buy. These make different varieties of pasta and stretch dough for perfect lasagne.

Dials and controls are chunky and built-to-last with an intuitive design (the button to tilt the head is usefully located on the back hinge of the machine – a safety function means everything stops if this is used when the beater is in motion, too).

The handle on the stainless steel bowl was a bit awkward for dishwasher stacking, but we liked it when twisting the bowl away from the stand to transfer batter to a cake tin.  

The chrome finish might not be for everyone, but there are other colourful versions available. A great all-rounder with impressive build quality.
