I am interested in Kenwood Food Mixer the ones that seem to be in my budget are the Kenwood Prospero KM262 or 265. However anyone any comments on these or alternatives and b. What is the difference. I like the idea of having a few attachments do they both have the range? Thanks

you can check out how the machines compare on the kenwood website.

What do you want to use the machine for. For me the 262 is, apparently, useless as it will only process 500g dough. I use 1500 g flour in my KC, a very old machine. My machine is used primarily to make bread, and Christmas cakes but it makes a fantastic meringue too. For me I would go for capacity of mixing and engine capacity /power.

There are some excellent deals available

agree with Bazzer, Chef or Major. I've got the Chef and added lots of attachments,it came with liquidiser, use it a lot. Great for bread mixing. foxy x

I was thinking of buying a Prospero last year and with advice from this site and, in particular, from James, I bought a Premier Chef and I am absolutely delighted with it. It's a wonderful machine.

In fact I'm now thinking of buying the ice cream maker attachment and wonder does anybody have one and, if so, is it good and/or worth the money?

Kenwood.

Im glad you are pleased after following my advice Deirdre! Would have hated you to come back and say you were dissapointed.

I've no experience of the ice cream maker, but have a look on amazon. You dont have to get it from their of course, but the good thing is the customer reviews. They publish the good and the bad, many website only let the good ones go on show!

I can only echo the sound advice given above.

You want the biggest capacity, and the highest motor power that your budget allows.

You may feel you only need a small bowl for your needs, but you can mix a small amount in the larger bowl, but not a larger amount in a smaller bowl!

Good sites to look on are amazon.co.uk and lakeland.co.uk

The reason is both these sites publish all reviews, not just the good ones.

Shop around, take your time, there are some brilliant offers around.

Don't know if they still have it, but recently Robert Dyers had the basic kenwood chef on offer for £99.99 instead of £199.99

I have no experience on the prosperos, but I do believe that Kenwood in general offer excellent quality items

Personally, I chose the model I wanted, and waited until I could afford it.

Thanks again James. You really are a treasure.

I had checked out the reviews and one of them said you could use the ice cream attachment bowl as a second bowl for your Kenwood. If this was so it would definitely be worth it. But does this mean the inner part of the bowl (the bit you freeze) separates from the outer? I can't imagine keeping a bowl the size of the Kenwood mixer bowl in the freezer. I can't seem to find anything about it on the Kenwood site, which makes me think this may not be correct. So it would be really helpful if anyone on DOL who has one could let me know.

The alternative is the Philips Delizia, where you only have to keep a disc in the freezer, is a lot cheaper than the KW attachment, and also gets good reviews but then I don't get a second bowl for my KW.

Have a good Sunday James and happy cooking everyone.

The only thing I can suggest, Deirdre is to give Kenwood a call. I've called a couple of times in the past, they seem well trained and know what they are on about.

023 9247 6000

From the pics, it does seem to look like, if the inside comes out, it could be used as an extra bowl, but, as I said, I've no experience with this item.

Have a good afternoon.

James you're a genius, you've done it again. When you gave the English phone number I realised I had not tried to find the KW people here in Ireland, so I googled Kenwood Ireland and found their agent here and rang them and YES YES YES the inner steel lining comes out and you put it in the freezer and the outer bowl is the KW white bowl and all for €59.99! How brilliant is that? They could have the attachment for me in 2 weeks as it has to come from Italy (and you know how much the Italians like their ice cream!!!).

Delighted and excited. Thank you again James.

Deirdre,

Im glad you are so happy!!!!!!!

I have found the kenwood staff very helpful on the phone (you know what its like when you phone a company and the person on the phone only vaguely knows what you are on about........)

Im certainly no genius, I assure you. But if you are happy, my work is done! LOL!
