No, sorry, I don't have one but if it's as good as the reviews it can't be bad..spec looks ok.

but I guess it all depends on how much you will use it.. I bought a KitchenAid Professional which is used every day for several tasks.. not just mixing.. .. built to last and the design hasn't changed since the 1920s, made in the USA .. but there is a price premium for quality. .. like my old Singer sewing machines.. it will go on for ever, no doubt it will be handed down to my daughter and hopefully hers..

Thanks Jim, that's the rub............... we would love a KitchenAid or a Kmix but can not really afford it right now :cry:

We did buy daughter a Kmix a couple of years ago and she loves it. I still fancy the KitchenAid:whistle:

I tend to be pessimistic about these things......... buy cheap, buy twice and all that:cautious:

We still use a Kenwood we bought in 1978, got all the attachments, Spud peeler Seldom used, the mincer, Used at Xmas, whisks nearly every week, Dough hook 'occasionally.
Well worth paying the Extra, 46 years old? and still supplying the service

that's my maxim..

save up for the best then you won't be disappointed...

As Rangi says, The old Kenwoods were good.. can still pick them up on ebay , but if it goes wrong.. more money lost..

I got a kmix last year when Amazon were doing free toaster and kettle. All of them have been fantastic. Feel really guilty though as i had my Mum's old kenwood in the loft. Which works perfectly well just doesn't look as pretty :(

The wilko one looks really nice though and it will be under warranty if anything goes wrong.

I'm a newbie.
Have to agree with Spidey on this one! (y) Suppose it all depends on how often you will be using it but from the reviews it appears to be a good mixer. I have a KitchenAid but use doesn't warrant the cost!

I know you are old, but since when has 1978 been 46 years ago? :)
