wave Now, next week I am being paid for my tutoring.  The question is this.  Do I splash out and buy the Kenwood Prospero mixer?   I really, really want it and am trying very hard to convince myself that I need it as I only have a wee hand mixer.    Or, shall I be  sensible and put the money in the bank!!!   Over to you folks!!!!

Now then sweet girl, you have embarked upon the baking route so, you abosolutely need a Prospero (?). When one makes multiple cakes, one needs a decent mixer, as I did when decorating cakes for a living.  Go for it!

I'll try that again!

Can't pronounce on the Prospero - mine is a classic Chef. Bought it last year and am so pleased with it. It does a better job than I could ever do with previous tools. (Magimix and hand beater) I went for the Classic because the Prospero was going to sit awkwardly in my limited space.

Be aware - while researching, I came across several sad tales of folk who had not assembled the blender correctly - or had detached it from the base machine badly, and dumped the contents into the motor. Kenwood's guarantee does not cover this. Just saying!

A toast to Mr K Wood - he did a good thing!chefwave

Excellent!  Did you get a good price on it?  You will save yourself so much effort when baking now.  Have fun getting to know it when it arrives.

I'll try that again!

Good girl! I've got a chocolate cake recipe that is a whole different animal when made in the mixer. It can whisk in so much more air that the human hand.chefwave

A PM with a postal address gets the recipe - it is in an elderly book which never leaves the house! This applies to anyone who is greedy for chocolate cake, not just Danuta.
