Just found this top of the range non-cooking mixer from Kenwood and wanted to share with the ozbargain baker and pizza maker community.
Main selling point for this tank of a machine are
*Stainless steel attachements which are dishwasher safe
*10 year warranty (beat that kitchenaid)
Lastly, for those who want to save a little bit of money ($200 to be exact), there is the Kenwood Chef XL Elite KVL6300S $471.20
So basically it has the same attachments as the flagship model but with a less powerful 1400w motor, no halo light, metal body and 5 year warranty.
Blurp for the KVL8300S
