It's here, it's here!!!

It's Christmas come early!! Dear hubby so kindly got me this Kenwood beauty on Sunday. Been very patient waiting for it to be delivered. It just arrived! :)))

Was meant to be for Christmas but decided to buy it on the spot as it's usually out of stock at most places. We were lucky to spot it at Carrefour.

I didn't think it wise to spend almost a thousand to get one (I know that's what the KitchenAid would cost). I'm just a simple homebaker, not by any means professional. The only grouse is that this particular model doesn't come in silver. But I can live with that. The thing that attracted me was the cover over the mixing bowl. This way my batter doesn't splatter everywhere. You know me and my problems with them creepy crawlies (yeeks, just thinking of them gives me the creeps).

It comes with a liquidiser which attaches to the top of it and you can buy accessories to add to the basic set such as mincer, juicer, etc. I think it's time to do an auction on Yahoo! to get rid of some old stuff. ;) By old, I don't mean all dirty and overused. Most of the items are rather new and very rarely used.

The extension cable is very cleverly designed to be kept in a compartment on the back of it. No messy cables.
