It is a stylish workhorse for a tabletop kitchen appliance.

All the Beating, Creaming, Whipping, and Kneading Can be Done With the Kenwood kMix KMX5
The Kenwood kMix KMX5 comes with an array of smart features. These include functions from a soft start (for minimal spills), to an electric sensor that has been placed into the unit to maintain speed under different conditions.
Its exterior looks are charmingly retro. This is mixed with features that are made for the modern era. To start, the kMix KMX5 has a die-cast aluminum body which makes it lighter at 8.1-kilograms. Before you think that “it’s not light,” know that it has heavier rivals in the same class. Also, it has a small footprint which makes it compact enough to carry around the kitchen quite easily. With its neat footprint, it is still able to keep a generously sized mixing bowl.
It comes with four tools, them being a dough hook, the K-beater, a whisk, and a flexible creaming beater. With these, they all provide excellent versatility. There is also a cover that flips off at the front. This will reveal the socket for additional attachments, such as a meat grinder.
Another feature is a small switch which releases the head of the mixer for various other attachments. For its bowl, it boasts a chunky handle so users will have no trouble lifting it off to be placed onto a kitchen countertop. Still on the bowl, it has a removable splashguard with a hinged lid.
When it comes to mixers, there is usually a knack for fitting in various tools into the unit. Thankfully, the kMix does this with great ease. Users would only use a straightforward push and twist motion to remove and attach tools.
As for performance, the kMix excels in this department. For example, when you start making doughnuts, you may want to start with at minimum speeds. When you bump up the knead speed to 2, it will happily do so without any hitches. The resulting dough will be elastic, soft, and has perfect consistency.
The Kenwood kMix KMX5 is one of the greatest tools to be made for bakers everywhere. It is perfect for those who are starting out with baking cookies for their families, to professional bakers who prepare full-sized cakes.
