I’ve owned my Kenwood kMix stand mixer for almost three and half years and I absolutely love it. The kMix standing mixer is a dream to use in the kitchen and I wouldn’t be without it now. I recently read in a magazine about the Kenwood creaming beater and how it would reduce the frustrating need of scraping round the mixing bowl. Thank goodness for silicone spatulas!
After finding an online supplier I ordered the AX500 creaming beater which fits the kMix, although do be careful not to accidentally buy the attachment for the Kenwood Chef instead. Online retailers are selling the AX500 from £19.99 upwards plus postage, so it’s worth shopping around.
I had high hopes for this new attachment as up until now the I’ve only used the K beater for making cakes, cookies and buttercream. I’m honestly really impressed with the AX500 creaming beater. It has a rubber wiper that skims the inside edge of the bowl ensuring the mixture is well mixed and does most definitely stop the need for scrapping round the bowl. I found that there was only a tiny amount of flour attached to the rubber wiper after my cake batter had been beaten. So that was a huge improvement.
I believe new kMix stand mixers now come with the creaming beater but if like me you have an older model and don’t have one, it is definitely worth the investment.
Until next time.
