Kenwood Prospero KM283 Stand Mixer Review
The Kenwood Prospero KM283 Stand Mixer was built expressly for use of the whole family every day without worrying about the unit breaking down. Equipped with a powerful motor and several tools, it will simplify mixing and food preparation, and unlike other stand mixers, the Prospero is fully interlocked for safety.
Kenwood Prospero KM283 Stand Mixer Features
The Prospero is powered by a 900W motor, which is more than enough to meet the needs of even the most demanding families or individuals. The powerful motor is backed up by a 4.3 L stainless steel bowl made specifically for mixing dough and other foods. Aside from Kenwood’s planetary mixing action, the unit comes with three bowl tools.
With its compact size, you’ll appreciate the Prospero as it doesn’t take up a lot of space. Unlike other kitchen machines that are designed for use only on special occasions, the Prospero was made for everyday use. One of the more notable features of the mixer is the variable speed control, as it gradually increases the speed without compromising the control.
The importance of the speed variable control as it eliminates the “jump” that occurs when you adjust the speed in other mixers. This jump causes parts of the mixture to be thrown out of the bowl, but Kenwood has addressed that problem here. Aside from the variable speed, there’s pulse too, providing you with the means to start and stop where required. That is another useful function when you want to crush ice and prevent too much processing.
The unit also has an electronic speed sensor which helps the Prospero maintain its speed under various load situations. This feature is very useful when you’re adding eggs to a cake mixture or kneading bread dough. When you run the mixer you’ll probably notice some speed variations as the Prospero is adjusting to the load. It’s nothing to worry about and is completely normal.
Now that you know the features, this Kenwood Prospero Km283 review can now proceed to the pros and cons.
Kenwood Prospero KM283 Pros
• The motor is powerful
• The parts are easy to clean
• The instructions are easy to follow
• There are several attachments included in the package

Kenwood Prospero KM283 Cons
• The bowl cover design could use some improvement
• A bit expensive
The Prospero has received a lot of positive reviews and they are well deserved. The machine delivers as far as power and versatility are concerned, and the design is very good. The speed control for instance, has been placed at the side so it’s easy to reach.
The attachment capability is first rate and there are two speed outlets that operate on different speeds suitable for particular tasks. These outlets are located at the top of the unit, so you don’t have to turn or move it around, a very convenient feature.
