To add to the durability and to aid in cleanup, it is made of stainless steel.
What it does
This stand mixer is perfectly suited to do anything and everything you would want in a mixer. Because of its powerful engine and planetary rotation of the attachments (which ensure an even, thorough mixing), this food mixer is a great choice for nearly every recipe. With its three speed setting and included attachments, it can make whipped cream, mix cake batter, or help in making bread. Then, when all is said and done, it can be washed easily, folded, and put away.
What it comes with
The Kenwood KVC5000T Chef Sense comes with everything you will need to use it correctly. This includes a deep bowl, capable of holding up to 4.5 liters; a splashguard, to keep everything clean while you mix; a K-beater; a whisk; a dough hook; and an instructional booklet. More attachments are available for additional purchase.
This is the basic beater that you can use for almost anything. It has been designed so that it reaches throughout the bowl, leaving no pockets of unmixed dough or batter. This is the attachment used for most cakes, biscuits, pasta, meatballs, and pastry dough.
This has the design of the traditional whisk, which adds airiness to a mixture. Because it adds so much volume, it is traditionally used in soufflés, meringues, cheesecakes, and mouses.
Kneading bread is hard work, but necessary if you want to turn out a good loaf. It’s done to stretch the gluten, giving it the ability to rise as needed. No kneading, no rising, no light, fluffy bread. This dough hook makes kneading easy and hands-free. That means no more aching arms! The dough hook mixes and kneads bread quickly and easily, allowing you to take a break instead of doing it by hand.
The design of The Kenwood KVC5000T is very sleek and modern. This mixer is at home in any kitchen; you might not want to put it away! It has very stylish lines, and is a futuristic stainless steel and silver. Though beautiful, it is a very hardworking machine, and one that is easy to care for. Keeping it gleaming is as simple as wiping it down every once in a while. For those that value the aesthetic of their kitchen appliances, this mixer is definitely for you!
- It has planetary rotations. These are rotations that ensure there are no areas that remain unmixed, so that you won’t have clusters of dry ingredients that never managed to mix with the rest of your batter, dough, etc.
- There are two power outlets: A slow speed outlet and a high speed outlet. They can be used to run different attachments, so that they work to the best of their ability when used.
- The Kenwood KVC5000T Chef Sense has a fold function that is fairly unique to this type of mixer. It allows ingredients to be folded in, rather than just mixed. This is important in some recipes that require ingredients to be folded, not mixed.
- This mixer also offers a pulse option. This is a great choice for adding a bit of air into your recipe, making it lighter and fluffier. This is controlled on the same illuminated control panel that you use to adjust the mixer’s speed.
The Kenwood KVC5000T Chef Sense is a powerful stand mixer that is perfect for almost every kitchen. Though it is expensive, it more than makes up for it in its hard work, its pleasing aesthetic, and its ease of use. It has three attachments, which make mixing cake batter, whipping soufflés, and kneading dough easy and hands-free. Though it only runs at three speeds, it offers planetary rotations and a pulse option, making it a very efficient mixer. It is also powerful, running on 1,100 Watts, a high voltage for this type of kitchen appliance. The bowl it comes with high capacity, as well: It holds up to 4.5 liters, nearly fifty percent of what other popular blenders can hold. To ensure that mixing is mess-free, there is a splash guard. When the mixer gets dirty, no worries! It’s stainless steel, making it easy to clean and care for. When you’re done, you can just fold it up and put it away! But, with its sleek lines, you might not want to.
This is a great mixer to have. If you have the money to spend, and you’re in the market for quality equipment that will last, this is your best choice.
