The first Innovations

Over 70 years ago, Kenneth Wood designed a mixer that would change the way millions of people enjoy food. He was guided by strong principles of quality, innovation and design. And from that first factory in Woking, England, he made British innovation admired around the world. 

As the company developed a range of smart, innovative products, it wasn’t long before the arrival of our very first Chef Mixer. 
The first generation of a true design icon, it introduced the revolutionary concept of planetary mixing – moving the tool around the bowl as it rotates for a more thorough mix. Giving home bakers just like you, the power to create more amazing dishes with much less effort.

Evolving inside and out

Thinking differently, delivering more

Back in 1998, we added our first food processor attachment to the Chef. And in 2017, we introduced a suite of advanced bowl tools to ensure you have a tool for every job. We now have over 25 attachments, enabling you to do everything from making mince, squeezing fresh juice and creating homemade pasta.

Last year, in homes around the world, cooking and baking was redefined and became a focus more than ever before. Home cooking is far more about putting a meal on the table at the end of the day, it’s about the freedom to cook, to gather friends and family when we can and share the joy in creativity.

And we love being there with you along the way. From the sweet first taste of sugar at a first birthday to feeding a hungry teenage crowd or cooking a ragu just like Nonna used to make…whatever cooking means to you, we’ll be there to help make it happen
