out of stock [Amazon Prime] Kenwood kMix Bench Blender Black 1.6L - $49.50 Delivered @ Amazon AU (was $200)

690

A bit more sturdy than the Tribute Collection. Historically between $128 and $269 at HN according to pricehipster.

Smoothies, juices and soups are simple to make with this easy-to-use 800w blender by Kenwood. Cast aluminium in a coloured finish holds a large 1.6L ThermoResist glass goblet ready to crush ice, cream chunky soup or whizz up a medley of fruit into a healthy smoothie. ThermoResist Glass allows you to move between hot and cold liquids as it withstands thermal cracks and the vented filler cap allows steam to escape safely. The Glass goblet has blending ribs to enhance blending performance, pushing the ingredients back over the blades, there is also a profiled pouring spout and ergonomic handle for easy pouring. The Multizone Blade Technology ensures that more of the food is in contact with more of the blades, more of the time, for effortless crushing and blending. Keeping your kMix blender in tip top condition is easy as well: the blades, goblet and base can all be dismantled for easy cleaning . The drop on goblet makes this blender suitable for left and right handed users.

    I got one from last Amazon's deal. Happy with the quality.

    It's ok. Doesn't blend all the banana when I make a smoothie though. There are always small chunks left.

    I'd say it's only worth $50-$100.

      The hell … do you pulse it a few times?

      • +1 vote

        Yeah varied the intensity and also tried the pulse mode.

        If you pulse it for long enough I'm sure it would get all the bits. But then all the sides get covered in half blended oats. So I try to avoid pulsing it for too long. My shakes are probably 500-600ml.

        My last blender was a kenwood x-pro which never had that issue but it was 4x as pricey. The design is quite similar to this model though.. So watch out for leaks into the motor part of the blender.

          is yours leaking or just some do?…is it an all metal body?
          trying to justify the purchase as we got the matching kmix kettle a couple weeks ago…probably should have grabbed it instead of the cheapy braun - mainly for aesthetic reasons but also because kenwood :P

          @franco cozzo:

          The kmix hasn't leaked yet.

          But it has a similar design to the blend x pro which failed in just over 12×l months (myer let me refund)

          What happens is the seal gets loose at the bottom and liquid leaks into the actual machine area.

          There's a drain at the bottom which allows liquid to flow out but I wonder if it's possible that liquid can actually leak into the motor part.

          Having said that the motor was fine (x pro) it was just the seal had degraded. I would have used it daily if not 2/3x per day sometimes.

          Look at the reviews and you will see other people say the same thing.

          I did buy it again though so I'm willing to give it another chance.

          @Circly: thanks for the detailed critique. appreciated :)
          i dont think it will get anywhere near as much work at ours as you put yours through and i can see why youd need a decent machine if you use it that frequently. think it was a good move…glad i nabbed it this time around!

          @franco cozzo:

          No worries! It should be good for the average user.

          Also I hear Amazon has good warranty so it's worth a punt.

      I've got two blenders here and both proved useless for compliant banana smoothies.

      The only thing that works is this Braun Food Processor that i'd grabbed earlier. It's the boss of all contraptions in the kitchen now.

        Glad it's not just my smoothie blending skills!

        I use one of those Ninja blenders (I use the single shake attachment) - works perfectly with frozen bananas - I also add a large amount of Mayver's Cacao super spread, a scoop of WPI and use rice milk instead of cow's milk: awesome taste, btw. I sometimes add Mayver's Cacao peanut butter which makes it even thicker. Sorry - getting a bit off topic, there 😇

          For a second there i thought Macgyver was involved…

          I use frozen banana pieces, yogurt, milk, and maybe some fruit if the fridge is giving. Yeah, real master.

      Blender that can't blend the banana worth $5.

  • +3 votes

    I have bought one in last deal. Its pretty good. Worth the money. Its blends pretty fast and smooth.

  •  

    heh…only black available at the bargain $49.50 price.
    just bought one in cream for $49.50 with 1 minute left on the deal according to my amazon cart and then it just instantly shot back up to $204.00!
    …that was close! :P

  •  

    How does the waitlist work? when its out of stock. Is it when theres alot on the waitlist they allow some of them go through checkout?

  •  

    Now I just need the kettle :) Thanks op!

  •  

    Why don't you blend frozen bananas, wouldn't that blend better?

    •  

      I think most of us are talking frozen bananas.

  •  

    Does anyone know if there will be new deals tomorrow?

  •  

    …nice quality appliance. very pleased with the purchase ;)
