The power of a KitchenAid

A KitchenAid kitchen mixer needs less power to give a lot of power. This is because the motor drives the attachments directly, without loss of force. Are you looking for an extra powerful KitchenAid with which you want to know heavy dough types, such as bread dough? Then with a KitchenAid of 300 watts, you're already in a good position.* Direct drive

The power of a Kenwood

Kenwood kitchen mixers have a powerful engine just like KitchenAid kitchen mixers. The engine drives the attachments indirectly, so the kitchen mixer will need more power to provide a lot of power.

The expansion possibilities of a Kenwood stand mixer are comparable to those of a KitchenAid. Although the Kenwood attachments are a lot cheaper than those from KitchenAid. This makes it easier to expand your kitchen mixer. In addition to a food processor attachment, Kenwood also has a blender attachment for making smoothies.

In terms of quality and strength, the KitchenAid and Kenwood kitchen mixers are close together. The possibilities for expansion are also similar, but there are no big differences to mention.
