Damn amazing. Shame got the Artisan. This would be better for doughs
Great price.. uptick
I don't need this because I only eat two minute noodles, but great deal.
Great deal OP, looks like no stock in VIC though
Gone. Went to do research on it and boom all gone
Next time, buy first, research later. That is the true way of an OzBargainer ;)
I've learnt the lesson too many times.
This or a Kitchenaid
Kenwood if your main priority is dough, and you want to do more than a kilo at a time. Kenwood also have a better variety of accessories.
KitchenAid are better built, longer lasting machines though.
"better built and longer lasting" is highly debatable.
Kitchenaid use a much less powerful motor which can be stressed easily compared to the Kenwood.
Less powerful how? Because they're lower wattage? All else being the same, motor wattage is a mostly meaningless comparison. You're also comparing a less efficient belt pulley transmission to a direct drive setup.
Used within their respective limitations (hence my dough comment), the KitchenAid will last longer 9/10 times. It is of course up to the consumer whether the limitations are worth the added longevity.
The Kenwood uses lower quality components overall.
@wintermadness: "The Kenwood uses lower quality components overall." Do you have any evidence to back this up? I have heard the exact opposite in comparisons before, specifically the plastic/nylon gears of the KA kit wearing out or breaking more frequently.
@BoundedRationality: It uses a single sacrificial nylon gear by design, so if the unit is overloaded that's all that breaks. If you overload the Kenwood you're killing the gearbox and/or the motor.

well shit… missed out on this offer so bought the KVL85004SI for $809. https://www.davidjones.com/product/kenwood-kvl85004si-titani...
If I buy yours, it would be purely for display at my household because it looks beautiful :D
Really good price, I forgot what price I paid a few years ago, higher than this for sure.
