Kenwood vs KitchenAid stand mixers : A must read guide

While there are various Stand Mixer brands out there, KitchenAid has always come out on the top since a long time but Kenwood’s products aren’t much far behind which begs the question: If you had to choose between Kenwood and KitchenAid, which one would be better? There are various factors involved in this decision and so we have compiled a list of things which you might look into while deciding which brand is better.


If we were going on looks alone, KitchenAid would win this competition hands down. With various colors and shapes, its mixers are found to be the most attractive looking and when you need to store them in plain sight in the kitchen, it surely helps that they look this great. Its smooth and shiny outer just enhances the kitchen interiors making you feel happy about it and making your guests a tiny bit jealous too.

It’s counterpart, on the other hand, isn’t exactly as stylish and sleek to look at so if you are looking for some nice looking stand mixer to store in your living room or kitchen, I guess the choice is pretty obvious.


While you can find many attachments for KitchenAid on HomeGuyd separately, there are some tasks which are still not possible with your its mixers. It is also seen that it is a little more difficult to install the attachments to these mixers than to the Kenwood mixers.

Kenwood stands mixers come with a whole set of attachments which makes them perfect for performing a variety of tasks making sure that you don’t have to buy other kitchen equipment for these tasks.

So if you are looking for a multitasking equipment, you should definitely go for Kenwood as it can easily give you a diverse performance without buying additional attachments.


Kenwood’s motor is found to be more sturdy than that of the KitchenAid.

When you are using your Kenwood machine at high power, you don’t have to worry about damaging it and it will effectively perform your task with relative ease whereas if you are using KitchenAid machine, you can’t use it at a very high power because there’s always a chance it might break under the pressure.

Kenwood undoubtedly sounds like a strong machine and if you are in search of this, then this should be your go-to machine and not KitchenAid.


When it comes to durability we prefer the Kitchen Aid stand mixer but don’t get us wrong. Kenwood too has a long history of durable products and its robustness is one of the main reasons it won’t break down easily. For the neutrals, I’d say it’s a tie on this one.


KitchenAid machines are comparatively easier to clean as they have fewer crack and nooks to clean than the Kenwood mixers which have a larger amount of gaps and holes and attachments to be cleaned and scrubbed.

Easy to Move

While Kenwood is quite as large as KitchenAid stand mixers, they are easy to move, unlike the KitchenAid mixers which are heavy and so quite cumbersome to move from one place to another.


This is a no-brainer really, Kenwood costs less than the KitchenAid mixers and this could play a huge role while buying a stand mixer. If you are looking for a not so costly and highly effective stand mixer, then Kenwood is your brand.

Kenwood provides you with a value for money product, unlike KitchenAid which is expensive and may not suit your needs.

To be honest, there is no better product really, it actually depends on your needs. But if we had to choose, we would say Kenwood is a slightly better than the KitchenAid stand mixers with their robust motor, high efficiency, and low cost.
