The Kenwood kMix KMX52 Stand Mixer Almond Cream is ergonomically designed so you’ll have an easier time preparing cakes and other food mixtures, and it is equipped with a 500 watt motor with a sophisticated electronic speed control that allows for ‘soft starts”. What this soft start does is increase the unit’s speed slowly so you have complete control over the process. And that’s just for starters.

Kenwood kMix KMX52 Stand Mixer Features

This Kenwood kMix KMX52 Stand Mixer Almond Cream review can also say that the soft start feature ensures splashing is kept to a minimum. As anyone who’s used a mixer before can tell you, things can get messy, so the soft start is definitely a welcome feature. Like the other Kenwood models, the Kenwood kMix Stand Mixer has a fold function and planetary mixing action built in. The fold function helps with air retention, an integral part to mixing recipes.

In addition the package comes with 3 nonstick bowl tools namely the dough hook, balloon whisk and K beater, plus two power outlets are included if you want to use other attachments. With the power outlets you can buy other attachments and use the mixer for pasta, grinding, mincing and more.

The ergonomic design of the machine means you’re not going to feel weary handling the controls even for extended periods, and all controls are located in front for added convenience. All the attachments for the Kenwood kMix KMX52 Stand Mixer are also connected at the front so it’s quick and easy.

The planetary action and the generous 5 litre bowl allows you to prepare copious amounts of ingredients and mixtures, and if you have to do some delicate mixing, just use the fold function so it moves more slowly. There’s also a glass blender separately available that you can pair with this.

True this mixer has some shortcomings, but they are only a few, and it has more ups than downs. With a 500 watt motor this machine is more than enough to meet the needs of most people, and the quality is very high. As noted by many reviewers, the soft start function makes cake mixture preparation less of a hassle. Not only is the process quicker, but you‘ll spend less time cleaning splatter on your countertop.
