Which? tries brand new Kenwood Chefette mixerIs this the perfect blend of hand and stand mixer?

20 December 2013

The Kenwood Chefette mixer looks like the perfect combination of a stand mixer and hand mixer, but is it any good? We asked one of our team to prepare some cake mixes with this £70 Kenwood mixer and give her verdict.

It might look just like a stand mixer but this new kitchen aid from Kenwood also allows you to detach the top and use it as a hand mixer. 

Kenwood promises that it will 'help you make the perfect cake', so we tried it out to see whether it lives up to this claim.

The Kenwood Chefette in a nutshell

Powered by a 350W motor, the Chefette has five speed settings and a pulse function. The unit comprises a three-litre polished stainless steel bowl (with a working capacity of 1.5 litres) and a plastic splash guard to prevent mess.  

It comes with metal beaters for basic jobs such as whisking and mixing ingredients for cakes or pastries, as well as some dough hooks.  

The Chefette is available from Currys, Ocado, Debenhams and Co-operative Electrical.
