My old Kenwood Chef died after nearly 30 years of hard work. I bought another brand mixer but it did not do what it claimed to do. Lakeland were marvellous and very helpful in assisting me to upgrade to this machine. This one does do what it says on the box and is an absolute delight to use as well as being a very handsome machine. This machine will never be hidden in a cupboard. Cakes, bread mixing and liquidising is fantastically easy and I am looking forward to using the food processor soon. Thank you again Lakeland Customer Services. You are stars!
