    After 40 years of service my Kenwood Chef was in need of some tlc. Mike has done a super job in servicing and refurbishing the machine ready for another 40 years work. Mike kept me informed throughout the work.

    I’m as pleased as punch My grandmother’s 1952 Kenwood Chef is as good as new. Perfect timing with lockdown in place. Thank you Mike for such a brilliant job and your customer liaison is second to none.

  • Shona Sutherland (Thursday, April 23 20 06:10 pm BST)

    My beloved Kenwood, which had certainly seen better days, was well in need of some TLC, and no better place for it to receive that than at Kenmix Engineering! Excellent customer service and a beautifully serviced machine, with new parts, delighted to have my machine back in use!

    Mike can work wonders with old Kenwood Mixers
    Bought one from eBay naively thinking I could plug it and use it
    Not for a 60:year old machine
    All good as new now

    Absolutely over the moon with my kenwood Chef that Mike restored and mended after it blew up . It was my late mums 1969 model . It’s had a full refurbishment and I must say the photos on your site do not do them justice ! I picked the colour which was a fabulous metallic blue and it looks amazing ! Thank you so much ! What a star you are x

    I’ve had 2 old kenwood majors restored by kenmix. They were both in their 20s and now run perfectly again! No hesitation in recommending to others, prompt friendly service.

  • Seamus (Friday, April 24 20 07:41 am BST)

    I have 2 of Mike's refurbished Chef's, a model A700 and 700b. Both came back literally as good as when they left the factory in Woking 60+ years ago. Mike is also happy to document the full restoration process on his website so you know exactly what you are paying for - not all other restorers do this which says something in my opinion.
    I have a 701a waiting to go when funds permit and I'm sure it won't be the last 🙂.

  • Nicola Cocking (Friday, April 24 20 09:33 am BST)

    Overjoyed with my beautiful kenwood, Mike sourced a machine and customised it to my exact requirements. Mike updated me regularly going above and beyond to make my
    Special kenwood even better than I could have imagined.
    I cannot recommend him and Kenmix engineering highly enough! Thanks Mike I love my machine so much.

  • Seamus Ellis (Friday, April 24 20 12:10 pm BST)

    What Mike doesn't know Chef wise isn't worth knowing. I've got 2 refurbished A700s he's done and they truly are better than new. He's the only refurbisher that puts photos on his site of the restoration process as far as I'm aware which says a lot I think.

  • Helen Twydell (Friday, April 24 20 02:53 pm BST)

    Amazing service from Mike. I had my Gran’s old A707A which mysterious blew up the day she was being interred (!!) and he absolutely transformed it. It’s now blue / black and silver and looks incredible. Just wish my Gran could have seen it.

  • Jim Eldridge (Monday, April 27 20 09:30 am BST)

    I cannot praise Mike and his work on repairing our much-loved Kenwood Major enough. With it's motor gone, we thought it was finished. No-one held any hope of repair, until we discovered Mike at Kenmix. Superb work, brilliant customer contact & service. The absolute best.
    I would advise anyone with a Kenwood needing work, look no further than Kenmix Engineering.
    Thankyou, Mike.

  • Derek Murphy (Monday, April 27 20 09:27 pm BST)

    Outstanding service mike, used my mixer this afternoon after it arrived back this morning. Thank you for all your help.

  • Jim Eldridge (Tuesday, April 28 20 09:17 am BST)

    I cannot praise Mike at Kenmix Engineering too highly. Our much-loved 35 year old Kenwood Major had given up the ghost, its motor burnt out, and all the firms and organisations we spoke to told us there was nothing to be done except dump it. The, fortunately, we discovered Kenmix Engineering. Not only did Mike tell us he could repair it, he kept us updated throughout the repair process. We now have our Kenwood Major back in our kitchen, looking and working even more wonderfully than before. Thankyou, Mike You are a Kenwood wizard.

  • Joanne Gamester (Tuesday, April 28 20 05:48 pm BST)

    We bought a beautiful old Kenwood Chef at a jumble sale in the 1980s amd it has sat in our loft ever since. We kept it for its superior quality and design but had given up hope of making use of it and we were about to get rid of it when I found Mike on the internet. Thank you Mike for doing a lovely job. I am so pleased with it. The paint job is fabulous and it works fine and I'm sure will outlast the new mixer I had been planning to buy. I.m sure it will outlast me too!

  • Frank (Friday, May 01 20 08:27 pm BST)

    Brilliant service! My 50 year old A901 is running perfect!

  • Irene Atkinson (Saturday, May 02 20 08:41 pm BST)

    Brilliant job my Kenwood A901 is 50 years old and is now in perfect condition. Just sorry I did not know about you when we disposed of my daughters A701 that she had acquired

  • Andrew (Monday, May 04 20 10:43 am BST)

    Mike restored a A700D mixer I brought off eBay. I love the design of the A700 mixer compared with the modern counterparts. I went for a very bold Orange and the restore was better than I expected. So if you have any doubts, don't as Mike will do a fantastic job.

  • Chris Varnals (Thursday, May 07 20 08:45 pm BST)

    We entrusted our well used and rather elderly Kenwood A701 Mixer to Mike's tender loving care. We wanted a refurbishment that made the machine as good as new and serviceable for many more years to come.We were impressed by Mike's enthusiasm and in depth knowledge of the machines in his care. He kept us fully informed throughout the time that he had the machine and even checked on progress following dispatch to ensure that it reached us safely. We were more than delighted with his workmanship and would recommend Kenmix to anyone who wants to get their mixer restored to full health.
    A really great job and a machine capable of running on for many more years.

  • Seamus Ellis (Saturday, May 09 20 09:54 pm BST)

    Mike is the only guy I'd consider when it comes to Chefs. I have 2 of his amazing restorations , both of which are the A700 type. They are both as good as when they came off the production line in Woking 60 odd years ago!!

  • Lyn Saunders (Tuesday, June 16 20 07:30 pm BST)

    Really pleased with the work Mike has done on my 45 year old Kenwood Chef. As a wedding present from my mother in law I had kept it despite having purchased a newer model. I then saw a TV program about Mike and decided to contact him. My original machine is now restored and looking great! Thank you Mike.

  • Lorna (Friday, June 19 20 05:29 pm BST)

    So pleased to have my Kenwood back. Thank you very much for everything. Arrived home less than 24 hours after you had dispatched it.

  • Joanne George (Wednesday, July 01 20 07:21 pm BST)

    My late mum’s well-loved Kenwood Chef mixer - at least 50 years old but just like new again after a fab restoration by Mike. She’s ready for another 50 years . Thank you Mike!

  • Carole Green (Friday, August 28 20 08:42 pm BST)
