I've been dying to get a benchtop mixer for ages so we just put one on lay-by for xmas (FH's gift to me). The Kitchen Aid was just a bit too expensive and I don't think I'm a serious enough baker to really get my money's worth right now. I think the Kenwood will do me just fine and look lovely sitting on the bench.
I'm getting the yellow one. Pretty...
I'm keen to know how much you use it and what sort of things you make with it apart from cakes?
I have the kitchenaid too and love it, i got some of the attachments from our wedding registry. The kenwood looks pretty great too and mum had a kenwood mixer that lasted for about 25 years so they are good quality.
