The other week I came home to find something very exciting in my front porch. It was my brand new Kenwood Titanium Chef. This was my early birthday present to myself, and I hope I get enough birthday money to pay my credit card bill off!
I’d spent weeks researching and agonizing over which mixer to get. Looking at websites, reviews, catalogues. I finally decided on a Kenwood Chef because you can get so many attachments for them (I’m hoping to get the mincer and mini-mill soon, and I’m seriously considering the ice cream maker), and it has an excellent reputation for durability and efficiency. Then I spent more time trying to decide which model to get (more poring over websites, reviews, catalogues). I opted for the Titanium because I’d also been considering buying a food processor, and this model comes with that attachment as well as blender (something else I didn’t have).
I’d read on reviews that the box was huge, this wasn’t an exaggeration. It was heavy too! I managed to slide it into the living room, and decided to unbox everything there and move them separately into the kitchen, much less taxing! My cat was very interested in the box for all of a minute, it mustn’t have smelt enough like food so he then ignored it. I, on the other hand, was like a kid at Christmas, I couldn’t wait to unpack everything.
In the box there was:
- The mixer
- Glass blender
- Food processor with knife blade, thick slicer/shredder, thin slicer/shredder, and a julienne disc
- Dough Hook
- Spanner (to adjust beaters if necessary)
- Instruction book
- Leaflet about attachments
- Recipe Book
- Recipe CDROM
Anyway now my kitchen has been brought out of the kitchen gadget dark age into the bright and shiny technological age, literally, the machine is very shiny! I’ll be doing more posts on the attachments, so look out for them. You’ll also notice my Chef featuring in my recipe blogs too. I’ve already made cakes, buttercream frosting, whipped cream, and bread in it so keep checking my blog for posts on them and other goodies in the coming weeks!
