Has anyone got any experience with the kmix or can recommend another mixer? I would love a ka but my budget just can't stretch that far.
Here is the kmix if anyone's interested http://www.johnlewis.com/231257610/Product.aspx.
If you look at the spec, the motor is only 500w
This one is cheaper and has larger motor, so it's less likely to burn out, I think.
Although the one you linked to *does* look cool!! :D
Mind you, having just had a quick look at all the Kitchen Aid machines, they're only 300w or 500w....
So, actually, I'm no help whatsoever!!!!
I'm a Kenwood gal! LOL!!
ps: I'm also in Ess e x and how funny they've edited out the name place in your profile...!!!!
Oh a Kenwood will last YEAR AND YEARS AND YEARS.... I have one that is 41 years old (only a year younger than me!) I advertised on Freecycle to see if anyone had one that they didn't use any more, in the back of a cupboard. And remarkably, someone replied.
I've since had it serviced and 'pimped' - it's now pink and glittery and is STILL running as well as ever.
Here's a link to it:

Hi, I'm assuming you've already got your mixer by now but just had to say my hubby bought me a KMix for my birthday and it's the best thing I've ever had!! Sad but true!! I love it and use it several times a week for all sorts of things. The folding function is brilliant as it also lets you add in fruit without breaking it up (for instance in scones etc). Top vote for the KMix. Now if only I could afford to get a second bowl ...
