Your trusty stand mixer has become a stalwart of your kitchen. You swear by it for bakes, food prep recipes, and more besides. It’s a veritable assistant, but why stop there? We’d like to introduce a stunning kitchen machine that redefines what it means to have an all-in-one kitchen companion. The Kenwood Cooking Chef XL does everything your stand mixer does, and it also cooks, weighs, and connects to your smartphone. Game-changing? We think so. The addition of the weighing scale, connectivity and touchscreen are what set the Cooking Chef XL KCL95 from its predecessor, the Cooking Chef KCC90, intentionally designed to make your job in the kitchen more seamless. We make a case for why this is one cooking chef that you can trust by your side.

By now, we’re all pretty familiar with how impressive today’s stand mixers are. We’re accustomed to them having multiple functions and nailing our food prep as well as levelling up our kitchen game. But the Cooking Chef XL takes that one step further to minimise mess and maximise convenience: by having its own integrated induction cooking and built-in scales. With the mess-free EasyWeigh scales, you can weigh your ingredients directly into the mixer or through the attachmen
We love the pleasure of dining out. After all, meals are all about the experience, and Malaysians do love their food. But what makes a dinner extra special isn’t just the atmosphere, but the people with whom you share it. And for uninterrupted conversation and feeling utterly at ease with the ones we love, well, sometimes there’s no better place than home. Having a well-equipped kitchen combines the pleasure of companionship with the love imbued into home-cooked meals. Eating out will always be a treat, but for everyday meals, tools like the kitchen machine present options so you can have your cake (or ondeh ondeh) and eat it at home with your family. When it comes to choosing a suitable kitchen machine for your home, we’re truly spoilt for choice. The Kenwood range offers powerful blenders, food processors, and all-in-one stand mixers that can whisk, knead, mince and even roll pasta dough. This means your dishes can range from local favourites like Ayam Masak Merah
If you’ve got a sweet tooth and love the art of baking beautiful cakes, then you’re at the right place. Bundt cakes are dazzling, beautiful and taste great. One thing’s for sure, bundt cakes make a great centrepiece cake for occasions such as Christmas festivities or Thanksgiving!What is a bundt cake?Bundt cakes are essentially cakes made in a unique ring-shaped pan with fluted sides more popular in European countries. You can say it looks like a nicely formed doughnut but slightly more elevated in height and sturdiness. The good news is —bundt pans come in different materials, shapes, sizes, and designs. Some pans are made of silicone, cast iron or the more common one, aluminium. That also means you have complete control of how you want your bundt cake to look. However, it’s key to ensure that the recipe remains extremely moist as more surfaces of the cake are exposed to high temperatures, hastening the baking process. Check out this article on how to remedy baking issues if you’d like a crash course.For this recipe, we’re using a non-stick anodised aluminium

Craving for something warm and spicy when this time of the year rolls around? How about a flavourful gingerbread cake slathered with cream cheese icing, topped with a drizzle of coffee syrup!

There’s nothing quite like the restaurant experience – the ambience, the service, and above all, the delicious food. But also picture this: the same mouthwatering meal, but in the comfort of your home. Imagine putting your feet up while cradling a warm ramekin of chocolate souffle, or an unhurried candlelit dinner of duck confit for two, without worrying about closing time. How may you rightly ask? Can this be achieved in a home kitchen, without an army of assistants? The answer is yes, but not without the help of a kitchen machine - a team of sous chefs in itself. It may not necessarily replace all your nights out, but here’s the thing: it gives you options. Because the kitchen machines today do more than bake, with the Kenwood kitchen machine range featuring powerhouses that chop, blend, pulverise, knead and grind. The Kenwood Cooking Chefeven puts actual cooking on autopilot mode with its induction technology. This level of sophistication means that dishes like
