I've been looking at the Kenwood machines - do you think that the major is a better bet than the chef even if I'm not making large cakes or bulk amounts of baking? The chef titanium seems to have the same functionality but is a smaller machine....
My mum has the chef. I would have got one had I not needed something bigger for work!

Still don't know what to get! The Kenwoods all have really high watts where as the Kitchenaids are only around 500 watts :shock: so presuming they are not as powerful found a good bargain on a Kenwood Prospero which has all the attachements and everything I want but realised it is only plastic not metal so not the same thing adn won't last forever :(

I would go for the most expensive one you can afford. If I had the choice it would be the titanium due to its higher wattage, quality (more metal, less plastic!). It also has the medium speed outlet for a food processor but the chef doesn't.

OK since I wrote that last post @Louise I've spotted the chef sense and I love how it looks (still slightly less than the kitchenaid but I now understand a Kenwood is much better after mucho research!), not much in it wattage wise compared to the titanium but I really love it so I'm going to see who in my family wants to put in to see if I can get it for my birthday :cake: :yahoo:

Looks good. Doesn't come with nearly as many accessories as the Titanium though. Will you be getting a seperate food processor? The Titanium comes with a blender, food processor and creaming beater whereas the chef sense is just a mixer with 3 attachments.

It has all the exits to put them on though @Louise . Annoyingly John Lewis has a special until today where you get the blender and the food processor bowl (which really i think is all I'll really need) for free! I've found a really good deal (if there are enough of the fam that want to go in that is!) and then I'll just have to pick up the other bits as I go. I know that the Titanium is probably a better idea with all the bits but I don't love how it looks as much and I've already had to let go of my 10 year dream of getting a KA for my 40th :hohoho:

And I had a look and the Titanium only seems to come with the same as the Sense plus the glass blender which are only about 20 quid so I'm thinking I have to look at it a long time so I should go with the one I like the look of best. The only thing I'm not sure about is I think there is an extra exit for accesories on the Titanium but not sure what - can you shed any light on that @Louise ?

:lol: Aah ok, I didn't think it had the medium outlet for the food processor like the Titanium does.
