Hotpoint Multi-Functional Kitchen Machine : Solid and Functional Mixer

Stand Mixers
1

This machine is heavy, has a quality feel about it and is nicely finished. At the current sub-£100 amazon price, i’d rate it good value, and that’s the basis for my four-star rating. At a price much above that, you might prefer to save up for a kenwood chef. It’s as easy to use as a chef and generally works well but the chef has a pedigree and there are load of accessories for it. You get a quality, comprehensive recipe book with the chef too, or at least we did with ours (our second), a couple of years ago. The hotpoint is new and feels a little like work in progress. I imagine some of the criticisms that follow will get fixed. You might want to wait and see. Go to the product page and there’s very little detail about the machine, just a two-sentence description. One thing it does say is ‘can be further upgraded thanks to its range of professional accessories’ (and indeed there’s an `attachment connection’ at the front/top of the machine) but there’s no sign of any such accessories; there’s no link on the website and you won’t find them under ‘spares and accessories’. It’s just a food mixer, at least for now.

Incredibly very good price tag for a direct generate kitchen machine. Quite great cost for a immediate push kitchen machine. 4 star for the reason that i might like to have additional powerfull machine and a tiny little bit more big container.

The product arrived well packaged and the mixer wasnt broken. It is a large weighty machine, but seems pleasant in a superior sized kitchen. The machine is pretty easy to use and the results had been superb. It handled mixing a ten inch (25cm) fruit cake. The machine comes with a ten speed dial and a acceptable sized electricity chord. The bowl is a pretty good size for huge cakes and so forth. The machine to me appeared extra than potent more than enough for even the most important blend. Nevertheless, for the cost at the moment advertised, i was suprised that the number of accesories involved was confined to a dough hook, a whisk and beater. The literature says you can purchase extra but amazon didnt have a website link and the product or service internet web site at the time of looking didnt definitely help.Here are the specifications for the Hotpoint Multi-Functional Kitchen Machine:

  • Multiple attachments – wire whisk;flat beater; kneading hook
  • Main Bowl 5 litres
  • timer function
  • recipe booklet
  • stainless steel body

Specialist excellent mixer. . It’s possible it really is the good british bake off result, but household baking is back again in trend in my house in a large way, so this experienced high quality mixer was achieved with an tremendous quantity of enthusiasm and some pretty massive grins in my housethe first thing you notice about it is that it is genuinely pretty substantial, selecting up the box when it was shipped and you realise that it is also very weighty. Neither of these things is a negative detail though. It is not the sort of machine you will be placing absent after use, as you actually would want this to be on display screen in your kitchen, so make certain you have home on a function floor for it to be proudly exhibited. Established up is simple, as is the operation. It is a extremely simple machine, being just a variable velocity mixer with three distinct attachments (whisk, dough hook and a flat bladed beater). The machine really only has one particular management and that is a dial to decide on a person of the 10 speeds. The bowl is superbly built, remaining brushed stainless metal and double layered – it is major and tactile and clamps firmly to the foundation. The within of the bowl is easily curved to help the elements to blend and to make cleaning a lot easier also. There is also a plastic splash protect that partially covers the bowl whilst in use, and this was truly my only criticism as it is a minor challenging to place in place and take out, but that genuinely is a really minor point.

I have been dreaming of owning my own ‘proper’ kitchen mixer for a extended time so jumped at the chance of this one particular. A extremely large item, i can not visualize it getting off around the kitchen or staying knocked over which is good. A minor noisier than i had hoped but only slightly. Will come with a balloon whisk, a dough hook and a flatter beater, as well as a rigid spatula. Nevertheless seeking to figure out how or where by to obtain excess equipment but i’ll get there. The instruction/recipe booklet is pretty rubbish but the mixer is very self explanatory and there are unlimited recipes on-line so i will forgive the booklet. The speed options are awesome and gradual which signifies we have experienced no ceilings included in egg white. Attaching and removing the splash guard is a very little fiddly and hard but perhaps this will improve with apply. Appears to be like fantastic in the kitchen and is really straightforward to thoroughly clean.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • VERY GOOD PRICE FOR A DIRECT DRIVE KITCHEN MACHINE
  • Large sized mixer other attachments available.
  • Great mixer, other functions limited right now

Like other reviewers of this product or service, i’ve desired types these for several years, and an prospect arrived together to personal a single. As shortly as you choose it out of the box you can explain to it really is a top quality products. I appreciate the stainless metal finish and it will in good shape ideal in with any kitchen decor. It matches other stainless metal objects in our kitchen these kinds of as the toaster and kettle. The mixing bowl is of sufficient dimensions for mixing, is easy to take away and clean up. As stated somewhere else, this merchandise is major but i guess that can help with the security of the mixer while mixing so it really is for excellent purpose. I’m impressed with it can be mixing abilities and i’ve used it to combine the dough for bread so considerably. The instruction booklet is sparse but i worked out how to use it (in common male fashion) by messing about with the controls until finally i figured it out which took all of 5 minutes. I adore this appliance and it has pride of place in our kitchen at household.

Stainless steel bowl makes for good surface for beating egg whites, having only used plastic bowls in the past, this is a great improvement. However it is large and heavy taking up a lot of space on bench or in cupboard. – i’d think twice about needing such a large machine, i’d need to be baking often and in quantity to justify this purchase.

Very good price for a direct drive kitchen machine. Very good price for a direct drive kitchen machine. 4 star because i’d like to have more powerfull machine and a little bit more big container.

Review of hotpoint multi-functional kitchen machine km 040. The hotpoint multi-functional kitchen machine is a heavy duty food-mixer. Without the additional attachments, which you have to buy separately, the range of functions is limited. The machine is robustly built and very well beautifully in stainless steel; it will look good in any kitchen. Although i have only given mine limited use, it seems strong enough to last an exceedingly long time. The three ceramic tools supplied (wire whisk, dough hook and flat beater) are simple to change, and the machine is very easy to wipe clean. The large brushed stainless steel mixing bowl is exceptionally well made and there is a convenient splash guard to keep the contents within the bowl. The controls are straightforward, with a dial from which you can choose from 10 speeds, depending on whether you are blending, mixing, stirring, beating or whipping. This machine is more than you need if you bake the occasional sponge cake or occasionally bake a lemon meringue pie, although it will do the job. It is better suited to baking enthusiasts who wish to mix and bake in batches of two or three cakes at a time, or if you make your own bread dough.

I have now used the machine for cookie and bread making, and can write a short review. What i like best in without doubt the bowl. It is so beautiful and so solid, and the two handles are actually not only for decoration, but make it easier to clean the bowl and to remove it from the machine. It is very solid in hard plastic, and can both be used as a scraper and a knife. The scraper is perfect for me, and a true multifunctional scraper because it is so hard. The light in the bowl when the machine is on is very nice. In total, the design is fabulous.

Great mixer, other functions limited right now. So, first thing you notice is that it’s heavy. For me this is a good thing, it generally means quality / metal components. It also makes the unit more stable and less prone to vibration. This models comes with the standard accessories, but you can get other add-ons that use the front adaptor (inc. Pasta maker, cookie cutter). The controls are very easy to understand, well laid out and have a good feel to them – nothing is loose or uncertain. The finish is good, with metal and plastic matching nicely and it certainly looks like a quality appliance. I have used this for cakes and bread and it is great for both. The big bowl is great, and will take a huge amount of mix; enough for a couple of full-sized cakes or several loaves. The motor in this is only 400w (i have seen some professional maxhines that are close to 1000w) but it seems to handle a two-thirds full bowl just as easily as a nearly empty one. Perhaps the direct-drive motor has something to do with this. It’s certainly impressive and instantly responsive. Changing attachments is easy enough, and the excellent smooth bowl makes cleaning by hand very easy.

The product came well packaged and the mixer wasnt damaged. It is a large heavy machine, but looks nice in a good sized kitchen. The machine is very easy to use and the results were excellent. It handled mixing a 10 inch (25cm) fruit cake. The machine comes with a 10 speed dial and a reasonable sized power chord. The bowl is a very decent size for large cakes etc. The machine to me seemed more than powerful enough for even the biggest mix. However, for the price currently advertised, i was suprised that the number of accesories included was limited to a dough hook, a whisk and beater. The literature says you can purchase more; but amazon didnt have a link and the product web site at the time of looking didnt really help.

A really big machine that stirs things. I am glad i got to try this out, because i’ve seen nigella with her kitchen mixer on tv, and it looks glamorous, and i’d always wondered if it would improve my life. Well i was surprised to conclude that actually i don’t need something like this, but i would never have found that out if i didn’t get a chance to try itcaveat: the reason i didn’t get much out of this is because i have a breadmaker, which i use to make dough, and then i turn out the dough and bake it in the oven for a nicer shape. So i wouldn’t use the dough hook function on this machine, because a breadmaker is better: it does more of the work for you, since it applies heat to get the dough to rise as well. If i didn’t have a breadmaker i probably would want to use something like a dough hook because i am lazy. That or i just wouldn’t make bread. Secondly, i have a small blender, which is just big enough to mix ingredients for one cake. It also makes lovely light buttercream icing, and will whip cream. It only cost me a tenner from a charity shop, and since i only need to cook for two, my basic blender is good enough for me. And i don’t mind using a hand whisk for other things if i need to.

I love this kitchen machine, its a good looking addition to my kitchen. The bowl is solid with a beautiful finish. It is easy to use, the attachments are easy to connect/change over. It is heavy to move but i wouldn’t want it anywhere else but on my kitchen worktop.

Aptly named ‘hotpoint multifunction kitchen’. This is very sleek and elegant out of the box. Quite compact and space saving. It comes in polished stainless steel silver finish. The direct drive motor, has 10 speed dial with a lock and release button for lifting the motor to attach relevant parts for whisking, kneading or beating. The mixing bowl is quite large at 5l with dual handle and is made of double layer stainless steel in polished silver finish. According to the diagram on the box this comes with three attachments a whisk, a kneading hook and a flat beater. However mine came with only the whisk and kneading hook. The second flaw in my box is that it did not come with a user manual but it was easy to work out how to use the machine. Not much assembling was required, so no problems there however there is a promised recipe book which is also missing from my pack.

From the second you take this item out of its packaging you realise what a quality piece of equipment you have just purchased. It exudes class and it’s stylish finish will compliment any kitchen. The solid stainless steel mixing bowl has a large capacity and is very easy to clean. The machine itself is very easy to operate, the utensils are easy to fit and change. Included are a dough hook, whisk and a stainless steel mixer. The operating instructions supplied are very clear and in operation it excels with a good speed ratio. It mixes ingredients in seconds. The results so far have been very impressive. If you are in the process of looking for a new kitchen gadget then this little beauty won’t let you down.
