Kenwood Mixing Bowls – SOLD

29 Jul

Kenwood mixing bowls

Kenwood mixing bowls

They may be very plain to look at, but these Kenwood mixing bowls aren’t that easy to come by. They would originally have been sold as the smaller of the two bowls that accompany a Kenwood mixer, but presumably they outlasted the machine. The one bowl does have some scratches on the inside base, which I assume were caused by the beater running along the pyrex, but other than that both bowls are in good condition.

A great pair for anyone who’s into their baking. These bowls also make nice salad bowls or serving dishes for pasta.

Dimensions: Each bowl measures 18cm tall x 13.5cm in diameter

Price: R120 each

1970s Kenwood Chef – SOLD

Kenwood Chef with blender attachment

Kenwood Chef with blender attachment

This Kenwood Chef was a great find! They’re pretty hard to find to begin with, let alone in good nick, and with so many attachments. It even has it’s original instruction booklet! Plus it has the blender attachment, which is a real plus. A friend of mine once bought a whole Kenwood Chef just so that she could use it as a blender – apparently they’re the best blenders!

A classic kitchen appliance that was built to last – I’ve sold 70 year old Kenwood Chefs that were still going strong!

Dimensions: The machine measures 30cm tall x 10cm wide x 35cm long

Price: R760 including attachments

Kenwood Slicer and Grater – SOLD

Kenwood slicer & grater attachment

Kenwood slicer & grater attachment

This is the first time that I’ve ever sold a Kenwood attachment by itself, but it’s such an attractive accessory with that lovely Kenwood logo, and it seems to be in pretty good nick, so I thought why not! Plus I still have a Kenwood Chef for sale, so I thought it might be nice to combine the two – whoever buys the Kenwood Chef gets this slicer/grater thrown if for free – and at the discounted price of R600 for the lot! Not to get all home-shopper channel on you, but that’s a lot of Kenwood for your buck – the attachments* alone are worth more than that!

*The Kenwood Chef already comes with a cream maker and a mincer!

Dimensions: 20cm tall x 8cm wide x 15cm deep

Price:

  • Slicer/Grater attachment – R120/ OR
  • Kenwood Chef plus Slicer/Grater – R600

1970s Kenwood Chef – SOLD

Kenwood Chef A701A

Kenwood Chef A701A

This Kenwood Chef (A701A) has seen better days, but I suppose that’s the thing about Kenwoods – even after years of use when their good looks are starting to fade, their motors are still going strong! That’s why people pay the crazy high prices that they do for them! And while the machine itself is a bit tired looking, the accessories it comes with are pretty clean. The cream maker looks like it’s barely been used, and the mincer, although missing its tray, is still in tip-top working order and also nice and clean. These accessories alone sell for around R450 and R400 respectively, and can sell for even more (people really are mad!).

Dimensions: The machine measures 30cm tall x 10cm wide x 35cm long

Price: R620 (including cream maker & mincer)

1950s Kenwood Chef – SOLD

Kenwood Chef A700

Kenwood Chef A700

I stand to be corrected, but I think that the Kenwood Chef A700 was the very first Kenwood ever made – prior to finding this Kenwood, I’d only ever seen the A700 in photographs, so I can’t imagine that there are too many of them floating around! The A700 was manufactured by Kenwood between 1950 and 1957, after which it was replaced by the A700D. What’s amazing – aside from the fact that it’s still going strong after nearly 70 years – is that it seems to take modern Kenwood accessories. The person I bought it from used a blender with it (see pics under ‘more’) – unfortunately the blender is a bit damaged so I’m not selling it with the machine, but I wanted to include the photo so you could see what I was talking about. Impressive that they’ve managed to keep their fittings the same after all these years! Sadly though, somebody has painted the Kenwood, and has done a pretty shabby job of it! I think that the paintwork was done a good many years ago, and likely because the machine needed a bit of a face lift, but it’s still a pity that it’s not completely original – that being said, the new paint probably helped to preserve the machine somewhat. The bowl is fascinating – it weighs a ridiculous amount! In fact I suspect that it’s cast-iron that’s been sprayed with a stainless steel finish – which would explain the black marks that won’t clean off (see pics under ‘more’).

This Kenwood Chef is an amazing bit of engineering – how many of today’s appliances do you think will still be in good working order in 65 years time? Very few I’d guess!

Note: Because of the weight of the bowl, and the rest of the machine, this Kenwood is for sale in Durban only.

Price: R490

Vintage Kenwood Chef – SOLD

Kenwood Chef with blender

Kenwood Chef with blender

I see quite a few Kenwood Chefs on my travels, but I’ve been burnt in the passed so I’m a little wary of them, but I bought this Kenwood from a dealer that I know well, and he assures me that it’s in good working order, plus it looks pretty clean and Justin had a listen to the motor and it sounds nice and strong! The Kenwood Chef A701A was first introduced in 1962 and was manufactured until 1976, when it was replaced by the 707 (they sound like Boeings don’t they?!) – which makes this blender in the region of 45 years old! There are a few signs of it’s age, but for the most part it’s in reasonably good condition. The most obvious issue is the missing Kenwood badge, but that really won’t affect its performance, nor will a bit of peeling paint and a piece of broken plastic on the one handle. And on the plus side it has the famous K hook along with another beater attachment, its original instruction manual, and (big, big plus!) the blender attachment. I can’t remember who it was, but the last time I sold a Kenwood with the blender attachment someone wrote to me very excited to say that the Kenwood blenders beat all other blenders hands down – a nice endorsement!

Dimensions: The machine measures 30cm tall x 10cm wide x 35cm long

Price: R580
