I am in love again.

With my new KITCHENAID ARTISAN.
After being a loyal friend for 38 years, my dear friend the Kenwood Chef decided that he had had enough. What to do? Buy another Kenwood or look at something else?
The forum I am an administrator on, (Violet's Pantry) are pretty well divided on this subject. Some prefer Kenwood and others love the KA.
So I did some more research and found all the wonderful colours it comes in. People said that I should get the pale pink one as my kitchen is mostly pink. But to be honest with you, to me that looked cheap.
The colour I decided on, is called Boysenberry. Hmmmm, yum.
This machine is so quiet! About half the noise of the Kenwood. And efficient. I had to cream butter until it was white, so on half speed, it managed this in under two minutes. WOW! And I could still hear the radio in the background. Ha ha.
My next post will be the cake I made, something I have never attempted before, a delicious Victoria Sponge. Stay tuned.

Congratulations Hottie! Your new machine is a beauty! LOL I think fans of these two machines can be likened to the people who are either Ford or Holden;) Well, I can appreciate both - I have a an old Kenwood so 'side' there, but there is no getting away from the beauty of the KA:) Happy Baking!!

PS, My old machine 'The Lion' roars so loudly I think it frightens the children:P

Congrats on your KA. I have the baby pink KA and to be honest it looks far from cheap..I don't think KA could look cheap no matter what colour.
