Next Kenwood product to be discussed is the Kitchen machine. I have been using two Kitchen Machines. KENWOOD PROSPERO KITCHEN MACHINE KM241 and KMIX KITCHEN MACHINE KMX51.
The Mixers come with a dough hook, beater and whisk. For me, the dough hook is the most used.
Initially I started using the KENWOOD PROSPERO KITCHEN MACHINE – KM241
It can be called as a ‘beginner’s delight’. Easy to handle and is light weighted in comparison to other Kenwood kitchen machines. Since it can easily be taken out when needed from the shelves, the stress of placing it as a table top appliance, occupying space in the kitchen slab is reduced. This one is apt for kneading or whisking in small quantities. This machine is handy in kneading- the simple pizza base, chappathi dough to bread and buns.
The self explanatory video below, shows the procedure of kneading buns made easy. This certainly simplifies the inconvenience of kneading by hand.
The fear of all purpose flour, polished white sugar, unwanted enhancers and preservatives added in the store bought products, encouraged me to bake healthier versions of baked goodies. I started baking more and more breads and buns. I started using the sturdier version- Kmix Kitchen Machine. This machine comes with a 5lr. large mixing bowl made of polished stainless steel. This has been my ideal partner in the recent past, in making breads, buns, cakes and pastries.

Next to kneading, I use the beater for blending certain complicated cake batters – like the one below- date and walnut whole wheat batter or even a carrot cake batter which needs quick incorporation of ingredients. And not to miss, the cream cheese frosting that I do with the whisk attachment, with less strain on hands.

Most importantly, one big bowl can serve all purposes, thereby limiting the usage of several utensils in the kitchen. Kenwood Kitchen Machines are truly ‘K’apable, ‘K’omplete and ‘K’ompetent.
