Wife can’t live without it

I bought this mixer for my wife this mothers day and she was so happy. I can say my mum has been using her kenwood for years and they are so pleased with this mixer.
She really loves it for dough making and can easily make 1-1.5kg mixes with ease. The machine is a little quieter than the previous model and she is happy that the small filter is no visible on this model. Its disappointing that this model no longer comes with the thermo glass blender and food grinder, but other wise great value for money for those people who dont use them.

Making bread was one of the main reasons I bought mine. I spent a lot of time looking for the answer to this question and in the end, the answer is that there is no wrong answer.

Generally speaking I would suggest mixing by hand (spoon) initially just to get everything together a little bit. Then start at a slow speed until you have a ball forming, from there turn it up to around 3-4 (relatively low-moderate speed) for up to 10min of kneeding.

If you go too quickly the dough will fling off the kneeding tool and will heat up affecting the gluten.

Bread is fairly temperamental and affected by lots of factors so just play around a bit with what I’ve suggest above, hope it helps.

Thank you very much for your response. That explains why my gluten was breaking down. I was following the same procedure as my kenwood 4.8l titanium chef not realizing this bowl is soo much bigger needing a diff technique

I'm in agreement with Pammy, that sounds like a mechanical problem with the latch.
Since the machine is brand new it will be covered under the initial manufactures warranty, I'd suggest cleaning it out and taking it back to the place of purchase. It's a hassle but they will often just replace it for you.

I bought it one month ago .I am so happy,but I thought it can mix minimum amount of egg and flour . I tried and didn’t work out.
Does small bowl 4.6 fit for my bigger machine if bought separately ? Thanks

I regularly mix small quantities in my large bowl, however I find that you need to premix things a little when using the dough hook, otherwise it doesn't get enough 'grip' on the mixture to bring it together. The whisk and K-mix attachment both seem to be better at picking and combining small batches.

My recommendation is to use a spatula to help bring the dry and wet ingredients together slightly when working with small batches prior to turning on the mixer.

Hope this helps
