Kenwood Chef cake mixer, model KM 210 (Chef Excell)
Doesnt have to be the exact model but would help if it is an older model. I particularly am after bread receipes and the SPEED on which to use the dough hook. I have googled with no success except for those for sale on Trade Me. Am happy to pay for photcopying/mail.

Hi. I have found a book that says: You can start off by using the paddle mixer and then switch to dough hook. You can stop the machine from time to time to add flour. Use speed 2 to mix slowly, combining, Speed 4 is the medium, speed 6 is medium-high, and 8 is high. Speed 10 is too high for bread doughs. So maybe between 2 and 4 might work. Just dont ever strain the machine if the dough is thick. If I find more info, I will certainly pass it on to you. Good luck, Carol
Thank you Carol, sorry it has taken so long to reply. Thought it would be a low speed, now to find a reciepe!
Thanks again for your help.
When I unpack all my books, I will find one for you, I have several.
That would be great thanks. I have got the Alison and Simon Holst Bread book, has reciepes and instructions for bread machines or to make by hand, lovely book. Its just I have wrist problems and find I cant knead the bread for as long as sometimes required or as good, hence wanting info re use of kenwood chef dough hook. Plus baking bread in my oven is bound to give and even nicer product than what I get from bread maker. No hole from the darn kneading paddle for a start
