"Most beloved kitchen thing…"
I've had mine for a few years and it's fab. I particularly rate the Titanium as it includes the food processor so saves space on an additional item.
I have built up my collection of add-ons, of which there are many, my favourite is probably the grater.
I was totting up how much I'd used it over Xmas and it really was well used...
*grating massive amounts of cheese for a fondue
*making breadcrumbs for stuffing
*making oreo crumbs for mud pie
*making cake for mud pie
*whipping cream for mud pie
*making pastry for cheese tart
*kneading dough for various breads
*Mincing leftover meat to use in ragu
*mincing meat for sausages
*stuffing sausage filling into casings
And those are just the things I can think of off the top of my head!
If you cook, buy one, you won't regret it!Read moreLess
"It might not be the prettiest but it does everything!…"
I had been debating buying a Kenwood Chef Titanium for a number of years, so when it came up on an Amazon "Black Friday" deal I took the plunge.
I have basically cleared out all of my other gadgets and replaced them with the Kenwood, as it comes with a food processor and glass (heat resistant) blender.
It has the full range of bowl attachments including, a dough hook, the Kenwood K mixer for heavy cake mixes, a balloon wisk and a rubber "blade" for lighter mixes.
I choose the Kenwood over the Kitchen Aid (KA) as the KA has far fewer attachments. I also didn't like the way the KA's attachments fix to the front of the machine, as you couldn't leave them on because they are so large. I leave the food processor on top of the Kenwood and it doesn't make the machine's footprint any larger.
The motor is powerful enough to knead a decent quantity of bread dough and it's not too noisy.
If you cook and bake a lot this machine will save you so much time.Read moreLess
"How did I bake without it?!…"
I love my Kenwood Chef...and all the attachments to go with it!
Great for kneading dough, whisking egg whites and even for making ice cream.
It isn't cheap...but I've had it for a few years now and it was definitely worth it!Read moreLess

"I've had my Kenwood Chef for 7 years now and…"
I've had my Kenwood Chef for 7 years now and use it at least 4 -5 times a week. So the initial investment was well worth it!
Apart from the sheer endless uses, once you buy additional attachments (ice-cream maker, pasta maker, juicer, potatoe peeler), I love the fact that it is made to last and can be "serviced" when the need arises. Previous food processors I've owned have had to be thrown away once faulty, as individual components could not be replaced.
After initially keeping the Chef tidied away in a cupboard as it's rather large, it now has a permanent spot on my worktop. I realised that having it there makes it much more likely for to actually use it!
I known of others who have bought the Chef and never used it, then were disappointed about having spent the money. So if you are not the kind of person that regularly cooks/bakes, don't expect the Chef to magically start doing that for you!
If however, spending time in the kitchen is something you enjoy and do regularly, the Chef will be you BFF!Read moreLess

I have filed this under Food Processors, but actually it is much, much more. I originally thought about it as I was looking for a food mixer - I was agonising over whether to buy this or a Kitchen Aid. I plumped for this, and am SO happy that I did - and here's why
- Price - MUCH cheaper than the KA, esp when on offer on that well-known online retailer.
- The versatility - it is a great mixer, but as well comes with a food process with key slicy bits; AND a glass blender.
- The attachments for the mixer itself are great - a beater, a whisk, and best of all, a flexi-blender which gets every last bit form the bowl (unlike that of the KA).
- Style, not fashion. Yes, the KA is pretty and comes in loads of colours, but my Kenwood is a thing of stylish substance. It is in beautiful shiny stainless steel, which I polish lovingly and will go with any kitchen in the land.
Also - it does the job. I use the processor and mixer most, they are great. No complaints!Read moreLess
