All the talk of breadmakers on another thread has reminded me to ask whether anyone knows a company that will re-enamel my beautiful old Kenwood mixer/mincer??

I was given it as a wedding present, I think its about 20ish years old (possibly older) but with a new motor in so goes like a dream!! Unfortunately its a bit bashed with age and I was wondering if anyone knew of a specialist who deals with these!? Long shot but you guys always seem to come up with something!!

What ever you do don't get rid of it......the old ones are the best. I have an older one - but it has a plastic you have a porcelin or metal one?

I have both a porcelain and a metal bowl! The people who gave it to us had kept all the instructions and attachments, it is an absolute beast tho! Takes up loads of space but I was gobsmacked when I saw the newest kenwood enamel mixers for over £300!!

Sorry - meant to post earlier but forgot!

Can't believe how lucky we are to have such nice friends who would give us such a lovely gift - they also gave us a set of Denby with 10 place settings which (seems extravagant but was passed down to us from their parents as they don't have children of their own to hand them on to).

Would it make you even to know that we also own a cream dualit toaster (bought for only £5 in mint condition)

I can't believe that I wrote on another thread that I'm not materialistic, am seriously having to rethink my attitude...

No - I just can't get excited about a toaster....if it was a fridge now....maybe?

This isn't getting your kenwood enamled tho' have you tought about one of those could do lots of little layers to fill in the chips, then sand and do 1 or 2 top coats?

Do you think that would work? I hadn't even thought of something like that. I thought I would just have to send it off somewhere to be done but now you suggested that I may have to do some research.... !!!

Buy a bath kit - it's about £30

Do it in very thin layers and sand between every 2 or 3 layers (you may need 20 if it's a deep chip) - then when it's all smooth - do the whole thing so the colour matches (might need 2 or 3 caots to cover)

Thanks katymac, I'm going to have a look for a bath kit at the weekend and give it ago. I guess its fairly similar to repairing stone chips on a car which I have done before.

Thanks again! x
