So far so good
I purchased this machine after doing a lot of researching. My poor old sunbeam of 40 years can't keep up with my demands (still goes though). I needed a tougher machine for breads and large cakes. I am impressed with this machine so far. Love how you can adjust the beaters lower if necessary. It is a lot quieter than the sunbeam and feels robust. I remember my mum having a Kenwood Chef and she loved it, so thought it was time to give one a try. Saved for 6 months and I am very happy. :-). Fingers crossed it will last me as long as the sunbeam!

I purchased this model of Kenwood mixer after deliberating between this and a KitchenAid.
I wanted a fairly large, robust stand mixer which is also able to take attachments (specifically, a pasta roller). My mum always had a Kenwood mixer, but the metal construction of the KitchenAid felt robust and sturdy.
I looked at various features of the two and settled on the Kenwood for a simple fact - the motor wattage.
This model of Kenwood has a 1700w motor - the KitchenAid that I was looking at I think was only about 300w - this to me is a huuuuuu...ge difference and almost makes the decision for you. I feel that the Kenwood was better optioned (attachments included in pack and the features of the mixer). My favourite feature is the Bowl Lighting and the Pulse function. I have made so far a pavlova, whipped cream, a cake mix and bread - all of which have come out perfectly and as expected. And I have to say, as soon as i turned it on, childhood memories flooded back - these still SOUND (and smell!) the same as my mums old Kenwood mixer from the 70's - here's hoping mine lasts that long

My Mothers pride & Joy
I am still using my Mothers Kenwood Chef Mixmaster it probably was the oriiginal one first released it has to be 40+ years old , never been serviced and beats like a charm,
My must have!
This is a replacement for my 25 year old kenwood! Bought in December 2018 and have loved every moment cooking with it. The bowl has a much larger capacity, the motor is more powerful and the attachments great. I love the paddle for creaming butter etc and the folding attachment for those delicate dishes like macarons. Would recommend highly to anyone who bakes.

The machine that does it all
Love my titanium XL! I have been using mine now for 2 years and every week it gets a regular work out at least 4 times a week with buttercream, dough and general mixing. I have a few of the attachments which makes for much convenience. Highly recommend

Best mixer ever...I love the Machine
My wife loves using this machine which beats and mixes perfectly. If she has one criticism it is that the mixing bowl is too deep which can make it difficult to get the mix out.
All attachments that came with the mixer are easy to fit and easy to use.

Have been using this product for the past year and a half and I am constantly astounded by it.
It has a very powerful motor with a large bowl that cleans easily and isn't too heavy.
I am definitely looking forward to getting a couple more for my kitchen!
Reliable and built tough
Im all about quality when it comes to electrical appliances and that is why I choose Kenwood every time.
I cant love this mixer enough. Powerful and very generous bowl size is a huge bonus for me.
I know this machine will last a very long time even though i use it almost every day!
I love this mixer. I've been a chef for ten years and this is by far the best mixer I've had. I now tell every kitchen I work in to get one. The bowl six is great, and perfect for double batches. I also love the light feature (which I often use on early mornings in the kitchen!) I've never had an issue with it and I'll often use it on long 12 shifts of making cakes.
Can't live without my Chef XL!
I love my Kenwood Chef XL. I've had it for over a year now & use it all the time (it sits proudly on my benchtop!). Compared to my old stand mixer this one has such a powerful motor which I especially notice when whipping cream or egg whites in no time at all. The large bowl size is great & use it for both my savoury & sweet creations. I love that you can get the additional attachments too (I now have the blender & spiralizer). And I still get a bit excitement every time I turn on the illuminating light over the bowl!

My favourite kitchen appliance
In my career as a chef and caterer, I've tried several different brands of food mixers but my Kenwood Titanium definitely stands out! I love that the machine stops automatically when you open it, unlike some other brands which don't stop and cause a huge mess in the kitchen. My mixer has made my cooking 100x more efficient and I only wish I got it earlier! The mixing bowl is generous in size and I've had no issues with it when baking for friends and family. I also have the ice cream maker attachment and it is a dream to use.

Best Mixer, same as the oldies from the 60's!
As per my profile, I have had the unfortunate opportunity to own several stand mixers. I have a Sunbeam MX9500 (that I still need to review) that was great, but I stupidly doubled and an already large dough and it hasn't been the same since.
I have also inherited an old 60's Kenwood chef A701 that is still going great, but dont want to destroy it with large batches and dough. So I bought the Titanium XL.
From first opening, what a well constructed, solid (but not overly heavy) stable machine. Love the huge high quality attachments and big bow...l. The whisk is the most solid whisk ive seen, Kitchenaid cant even compare. Great safety feature with not turning on if the speed dial is already set when plugged and and the motor cuts out if the head is lifted. I adjusted all my attachments within a mm of the bowl to make sure I get the best possible mix. Folding speed is so smooth and slow to delicately fold in the flour for a cake. Small quantities are also possible with this machine once the tools have been properly adjusted with the supplied spanner. I have easily whipped up 2 eggwhites with the whisk (I usually use a hand mixer anyway or my little kenwood chef, but I wanted to see if it could do it). The XL bowl is similar width to my chef Bowl, so even though it is bigger (taller) it can do all the same as the chef size bowl. Spiral Dough hook is amazing and provides the best kneading action I have seen on a domestic mixer. Really kneads it, and not just spins it around the bowl. Creaming beater is also the best scraper beater I have used. It scrapes the bowl, but also pushes everything back down. Some machines like Breville's Scraper Mixer also scapes the bowl well, but tends to push ingredients up the wall of the bowl away from the beater.

This is one of the strongest home users stand mixer. The motor is strong the bowl capacity is very big. All attachments are great. I have found that when brand new sometimes the mixing bowl can get stuck. I have put a little oil around the slots that lock the bowl in and this recitified the issue. Over all I would never buy another machine. It is expensive but well worth the money. Also comes with a 10 year warranty
Fabulous all rounder!
Absolutely in love with this machine, it works silently and efficiently and is able to keep up with me and my small cake decorating business (needless to say, I use this a HEAP and it never struggles under the pressure). I especially love the Flexi-Beater attachment and the handy light that lights up the bowl as you use it. The huge bowl size is also a big bonus, especially for the quantities I need to make. Thank you for an amazing product Kenwood!

Heavy duty kitchen appliance
This is a true kitchen machine not some little toy. Very well made, sturdy thoughtful design. I can see one of my kids inheriting it! Plenty of useful attachments, we especially love the food processor. Bowl size is generous, and the light into the bowl to aid visualisation is such a brilliant idea.
The motor is powerful and kneads bread dough easily. The variable speed control allows for exact speed selections. The halo illumination and bowl cover do their jobs well. My previous Kenwood served me for 37years with no issues so sticking with Kenwood was easy. The most important feature for me is that almost every piece is dishwasher safe. I’ve also purchased the blender and food processor attachments and they too are mostly dishwasher safe. I’ve used the K beater, whisk, dough hook and creaming tool and they performed well. I’ve yet to use...the folding tool. I chose this machine primarily for its motor size and have been happy to enjoy all the other features it has. The size of the mixing bowl is great and gives scope to work in larger quantities.
After our poor hand mixer died, we decided to upgrade to a stand mixer.
After doing some research, both with friends and online, I had my heart set on a Kitchenaid, but after looking at both in store, we decided on the Kenwood titanium.
It won us over for the bigger motor, 10 year warranty, the impressive studyness of the parts, along with the smaller features such as the led light and splash guard
A bakers dream! Can’t live without it!
The Kenwood Titanium is the ultimate appliance for any home baker or professional chef. The motor performance is brilliant & the bowl capacity is great. It manages huge amounts of cake batters to bread doughs. The best part are the excellent attachments which are easy to pop on & clean. The food processor attachment is my absolute favourite as it grates, slices & blends perfectly everytime. The Kenwood Titanium is definitely the best & most used appliance in my kitchen! Can’t live without it!
I. Am. In. Love!
I've used a couple of different stand mixers and this mixer is a million times better than anything else I've used! It comes with a large range of attachments that are really useful, I use my creaming beater almost daily, and the attachments are super hard-core and seem like a really good quality! The bowl capacity is one of my favourite things, it's a lot bigger than what I've had before, and as I tend to do quite large batches it saves so much time as I can do it all at once instead of having to do multiple batches in smaller quantities. My o...ther fav feature is how gradually you can increase the speed! Oh my goodness, the days of flour poofing out all over me/ the bench/ my whole house are over! This mixer is hands down my fav kitchen thing I've ever had. It really did exceed my expectations!
Questions & Answers
Hello, am asking this question about the Kenwood Cooking Chef XL. When kneading dough using the pre-set cycle the bowl comes loose and starts to shake around somewhat during the kneading process. The bowl does not ratchet into place, I can only tighten it into its holding brace and no matter how much I try tighten it, it comes loose and starts moving around. Does not affect the end product, of course, but is quite noisy and annoying. Is this normal?
Your bowl should lock into place by placing the bowl on the stand and turning it to lock, if your bowl is coming loose after you have locked it in place, can you direct message us with your contact details and we can have someone from Kenwood Customer Service ring you to troubleshoot or you can ring them directly on: 1800 126 659
We would like to buy 2pcs for trial, and would you show me the Certificate of Quality (CQ) and if yes also show me your sample of Certificate of Origin (CO)? My email: firstname.lastname@example.org, and contact +84985247768. Thanks in advance!

What reviewers liked about this stand mixer:
- By far, the quality that reviewers appreciated most was the durability of their Kenwood stand mixer and the Kenwood brand name in general (many were using the Chef XL Titanium to replace Kenwood stand mixers they’d used for decades)
- The generous bowl size, which means you can make extra-large batches per mixing session
- Additional attachments worked effectively, with special mentions going to the blender, spiraliser and ice cream maker attachments
- Although this mixer is a little on the pricer side at $1299, reviewers rarely mentioned this, and the few who did also said they believed the Kenwood Chef XL Titanium was worth the price.
