Mixing Up Some Magic!

As some of you know I am an avid baker, cook and love house related paraphernalia and  knick-knacks! In total you could say I am enjoying being a grown up, with a little disposable income who gets to 'play house'. More than most I also love a good bargain, saving money, getting value and feeling I'v gotten a great 'aul deal.....wherever that may be! That said in January of this year.....I developed an obsession! An obsession of all things Kenwood and even more so all things Kenwood K-Mix (in raspberry red!). As a child my Mom always had a Kenwood Chef Mixer. She would always bake with us as children and let us spoon in the flour etc. to 'help' her (until the day I dropped the weighing scales into the Kenwood Bowl on high speed....I wasn't too popular that day). Because of these fond memories I always thought I'd like a Kenwood Chef probably due to the sense of nostalgia associated with it but also just because they're so handy! 

So one day in the depths of the Arnott's basement on Henry Street, I was having a little look. Two very helpful ladies rushed to my assistance when they saw me hovering by the K-Mix stand. I allowed them tell me the ins and outs of the K-Mix and do the hard sell! I smiled and nodded and asked all the right questions and told them I would be absolutely delighted to take one......if they knocked €100 off the price of €499. As my Dad always says to me 'If you don't ask you won't get!'. They looked dumbfounded and stunned but long story short following the two lovely ladies running up and down the stairs on numerous occasions for 'discussions' with the manager, my wish was granted! €100 off the price and they also threw in an adorable children's replica which is battery operated and can beat an egg....genius! (Pity my Mom didn't have one of these!). I was 'thrilled with the win' so to speak! I called in the reinforcements to help me carry it home (a.k.a Molly - man of muscle) and before I knew it I was home cooking up my very first batch of cupcakes to christen it! Ahh domestic bliss. 

So a series of K-Mix Products followed including a KMix Toaster, a KMix Tri-Blade Blender, KMix Hand Mixer and a K-Mix Blender. A little excessive...maybe, but I justify them all by using them excessively!

  1. Just wondering what u think of a food processor for baking cakes. I was in Arnott's yesterday and very close to picking up a Kenwood processor with built in weighing scales.....amazing! Any thoughts, I'm thinking that it prob won't incorporate as much air as the mixer. Erika X

  2. Well if you already have a KMix I really don't think there is any advantage in terms of making cakes or cupcakes. Though the food processor is great for things like making home made meatballs and certain cookie dough and for chopping vegetables etc. very finely. I use a magimix for this when at home in my Mom's kitchen. That said I now have the Kenwood K-Mix Tri-blade in my own kitchen which is very useful for the above functions. It also comes with different attachments including a regular and wide footed plunger for blending, a whisk, a grating plate, slicing plate and regular blade. It is also available in Arnott's and online. It comes in a range of colours! See the link below. Hope this helps x
