Major flaw in Chef XL
Major flaw- the attachments holder/locker is made of plastic, while the pasta roller attachment weighs 1330 grams. The result - broken attachment holder, due to combination of weight and rotation force!
Purchased in December 2019 at MegaMarkt Austria for $546.00.
Don't buy this machine
Very Dissatisfied with this CRAP.. unless you want to make 60 cup cakes at one time dont buy this!!! It only does super large batches, no good for anyone unless they want to bake cakes for 100 people at once. Bowl too big to do a normal size recipe!! Wont cream butter and sugar together... just plain CRAP!
Paid $700 at Bing Lee. Doesnt have a smaller bowl as beaters too big for a smaller bowl so no option there!!
False advertisement! Should say on box you have to triple all your ingredients for the beaters to touch the ingredients...
Phoned Kenwood and they dont Care!
Dont waste your money on
KENWOOD CHEF XL.
Model: KVL 6300s
Oh and P.S.. it shakes across the bench.
I had my old Kenwood for 35 years. I bought the Kenwood Chef XL Elite KVL6300S. I find it quieter, the dial is smoother to turn. there is a lever at the back to pull the head up, It is powerful and beats quickly .The planetary action combined with the larger whisk covers the bowl area well. I still scrape the bowl sides in between beating.
The bowl is large, larger than the old white Kenwood bowls, The bowl has a large capacity , it is stainless steel , The attachments are larger and stainless steel. I haven't used all the tools it comes with...
I recently upgraded my Kenwood Chef for a newer and larger model and was very pleasantly surprised by how much quieter it was. With a larger motor and capacity I found the XL Elite to be much quicker at getting my recipes were I needed them. I am still perfecting the ice cream bowl but this was a bonus free item and possibly one I would not recommend, the mixer attachments provided with the unit are of top quality and give plenty of scope to play with.
Questions & Answers
What is the difference, other then price, between a KVL61000T, and the KVL6300S? I have compared the spec sheets and cannot see any differences, if any.
Hi Ian I think it’s a KVL6100T. The main Difference in my view is the unit’s weight and Watts as 1 is 10.4 kg /1700 watts opposed to 1400 and 8.9kg. Both great products though. Some small aesthetic things like polished stainless steel bowl vers just stainless steel but just a great durable brand. I hope this helps.
Thanks for your reply. The specs I saw had them both at 1400 watts, and 8.9kg. I'll probably go with the bigger machine. If it lasts as long as my previous Kenwood, ( upwards of 30 years ), I will be happy.
Hi Ian, if you go with the bigger machine be prepared to double your mixture as a standard recipe volume of ingredients are way to small to mix in the large bowl that the XL comes with. I found out the hard way after spending huge amounts on my XL mixer.. now when I make cup cakes instead of the usual 12 or so I have to make 60 and give them all away as there are too many just for me... hope this helps
