At A Glance
The Kenwood kMix is

the most expensive hand blender in our round-up and it comes with the

most attachments. Indeed, the Kenwood kMix is more a blender and food

processor in one. The food processor bowl comes with a cutting blade, a

grating and slicing attachment that can shred a lettuce with ease, and

it also comes with a whisk and two different sizes of 700W stem hand

blenders – a large one for industrial soups or a smaller one for

miscellaneous tasks.

This makes it fairly intimidating when you

first set it up as the kMix and all of its attachments can be assembled

upon a special display stand that looks fairly impressive in the

kitchen.

We Like
The kMix has an easy locking system

that makes it easy for you to change accessory and safe for use at high

speeds. All of the blades use a 700W motor and the Kenwood TriBlade

technology, and we can assure you that all of them cut anything down to

size with ease and speed.

There are five different speed

settings to use, and the various blades and food processing combinations

allow a bit more control over how smooth the mixture ends up than other

hand blenders we’ve tested.

You simply have to twist the top of

the kMix to change the speed and there’s just one button to turn the

blender on. It’s easy to use and grip, too.

The kMix also looks

great. Its aluminium and stainless steel design has a pleasing retro

charm and the build quality is top-notch.

We Don’t Like
The

premium materials that Kenwood has used to make the kMix have an

unfortunate side effect: it’s heavy. The kMix is a heavy gadget on its

own, and when you attach either of the stem hand blenders, it can be

pretty taxing on your wrist.

As mentioned before, the kMix is a

bit intimidating and its not immediate how the slicing and grating

attachment functions, but there’s a great instruction manual that we’d

actually recommend giving a read. There’s a selection of recipe

suggestions too.

Should You Buy It?
If you’re willing

to shell out a whopping £120, the Kenwood kMix is certainly worth it.

There’s a variety of attachments to tackle any culinary task and it’s

very easy to use.
