Thinking of buying a Kenwood stand mixer? In this guide we’ll give you the lowdown on three models from our range; the Titanium Chef Patissier XL, the Cooking Chef XL and the Titanium Chef Baker, and explain why these versatile kitchen companions deserve to take pride of place on your worktop.
Often referred to as being a much-needed extra pair of hands in the kitchen, think of a stand mixer as your own personal sous chef. Whether you’re baking or cooking, your stand mixer can perform a vast range of tasks - from combining ingredients to whisking egg whites or kneading dough, more quickly and more efficiently than you ever could by hand. And while they’re hard at work you’ve got your hands free to work on another part of a recipe; saving you prep time and effort and helping you achieve better results too. And that’s not all. Some of the stand mixers included here can also be used to weigh ingredients and even cook them, while the range of over 25 additional attachments available for the Chef range mean your stand mixer’s talents can be even further extended to include spiralizing vegetables, blending smoothies, making juice, grinding meat and more.
Mixes, whisks, kneads… with an impressive 1400W motor and durable stainless steel tools the Titanium Chef Patissier XL can do everything you would expect of a premium stand mixer- and then some. Because this is definitely not just your average stand mixer. Firstly, there’s the 7L stainless steel EasyWarm bowl which can be used to gently warm your ingredients; perfect for melting butter or chocolate, and even for proving dough. Then there’s the built-in EasyWeigh scales that allow you to weigh ingredients directly into your bowl as you go for mess-free baking and a lot less washing up, while the clever touchscreen functionality with six SimpleTouch preset functions make everyday baking tasks available at just the touch of a button. All the mixer’s innovative features are thoughtfully designed to help you achieve the best results with ease. So, conveniently nesting inside the EasyWarm bowl is a second 5L mixing bowl, which can be seamlessly swapped in when a recipe calls for more than one bowl. There’s also the in-bowl illumination to help you better see the colour and consistency of your mix, and a one-handed mixer head lift so you can easily add extra ingredients as you go.
Our most technologically advanced stand mixer yet, the Cooking Chef XL has built-in induction technology to let you cook with your mixer as well as use it for baking. There are 13 easy to use preset functions that you navigate via the touchscreen, including dough kneading, dough proving, Italian and Swiss meringue, slow cook and one pot meals; simplifying even the most complex of recipes and allowing you to let the machine take over when you need to focus on something else. The in-built EasyWeigh scales allow you to measure all your ingredients straight into the bowl (or any of the other optional attachments you might be using) as you go, saving you time and cutting down on mess. You can even connect this mixer to the Kenwood World App. Choose from hundreds of mouthwatering sweet and savoury recipes and send step by step instructions and inspiration straight to your machine.
Passionate home baker? Meet your new best friend in the kitchen. All the award-winning Titanium Chef Baker and Chef Baker XL models come with precise built-in digital scales so you can effortlessly weigh ingredients directly into the bowl as you go, and soft-start speed control for mess-free baking. The 1200W digitally controlled ChefMotor™ has a delicate fold function that makes light as a feather meringues and mousses, while the unique planetary mixing covers the entire bowl, ensuring no ingredients get left behind around the sides or at the bottom.
