Kenwood Chef or Kitchen Aid

Which do you prefer, and why? I know that Kitchen Aids are more stylish, so it is really the functionality and quality that interests me, especially now that Kenwood Chefs are made in China. Thanks.

Which Mixer?

This subject has come up many times here on the forum and you will find opinions divided amongst those who love their KA's and those who are devoted to their Kenwoods! As someone who has both, but not, I hasten to add, of the current models, I may be able to help. I have had a Kenwood Chef since 1973 and it still works well, if a bit noisy, but I have just had a bright Candy Apple red KA as a Christmas present and have been using it for the last month or so. I really can't see any difference between the efficiency of them, apart as I say that my older Kenwood had become a little noisy. I think the only one who could really tell you which is the best, if there IS a best one, is someone who has a current model of each and I doubt if that person exists!!! They do say that the current Kenwoods are not as good as the older models but again, that is debatable. Sorry, not much help I know, go for which you like the look of is my advice! I suppose the other deciding factor could be the price, Kenwoods do seem to be good value.

Mixers

I agree with what Nenna said above. I have had both makes and my current mixer is a KitchenAid which I've had for several years now. I chose it at the time because the Kenwood, did not seem to be as sturdy and looked quite tacky for the price. However, looking at the current models they seem to have improved again. I would go into the shop and "pull them around" and get the feel of them.

Which one?

My Kenwood is pushing 40 years old and I "stole" it from my Mother. Still going strong and I can't fault it. If the new models are as strong and reliable then they are great.

There are very good reports of the Kitchen Aid and it is a bit prettier. The design of the Kenwood is not exactly glamourous but having flat surfaces it is easy to clean the frame which is useful if you keep it out on the work surface in the kitchen.
