My All-New Kitchen Aid Baby!

Just like many other bakers (and bakers wanna be like me!) there is always this choice that you have to make between a Kenwood or a Kitchen Aid. Its a never ending debate if you log onto forums what discuss which one is more superior than the other!



I had a chance to see one of the local baking sifu at her home and she was using a Kenwood Major. It was pretty bulky and noise compared to the Kitchen Aid I was eyeing the past year. Despite it being a "Major" model and big physically, it was light! The sifu placed her Kenwood on top of a pedestal and the pedestal was moving like 5 inches away from the original position within 10 seconds of beating on high! And boy, was it noisy!


Therefore, my choice would be a Kitchen Aid! Its smaller and more svelte in size and looks really sexy with its natural curves ... hehehe. And its very stable! It does not move and inch even on high speed! And its pretty silent too, which was good cos I can whip up something late at night and my neighbours wont complaint. Oh boy! How I love it! And the colors are so vibrant and can brighten any kitchen up!


However, being a very simple me, I decided on one of the safest colors in the world. It blends well into my kitchen (ie not standing out!) and that is what I want. My focus in my kitchen is the kitchen and not its appliances *wink*.


What's your choice?

I never take any consideration about the colours of my kitchen equipment, hehe:-)

If me, I think I will choose black. Hope you will find the right colour.

WOW !!! I don't bake so often that I would invest in something like that.

BUT....got to say you are getting to be a serious baker! One day won't be surprised that you are selling cakes and cookies. :)

Hi I was googling for KitchenAid in Malaysia and stumbled upon your blog. I am looking to buy a KitchenAid mixer and after calling a few shops most of them quoted RM2,400 onwards for KSM150. Is the Living Depot in Puchong still the cheapest place to get it? Thanks for sharing!

Hi Soo, that was during the sale time, which is usually year end I think. I got mine from TBM for Rm2,250.

Hiya, sorry where is this TBM you are referring to? Am currently scouting for a Kitchen Aid too :)

Carole, call Ken of TBM Bangsar Village (22874818 or mobile 012 2225318) Tell him you got his number from Joanna who bought KA from him last year. They just had a promo/demo last week for some new KA gadgets I think. The other salesman there dont give good discount.
