Q: I am shopping for my first stand mixer and have two options: a Kenwood robot and a KitchenAid stand mixer. Price is not a problem since they cost more or less the same, with the Kenwood series having a wide range of prices. Which one would The Kitchn readers choose?

The big difference I found between the models I chose are that the Kenwood includes a 6.7 litre bowl, while the KitchenAid machine has a 4.83 litre bowl. What turns me off is that the Kenwood is generic and ugly and the KitchenAid is annoyingly noisy. Any advice?
