nice mixer

I bought this so I wouldnt have to mix and knead dough by hand and I have to say I love this and have used it so many times since I purchased it in December! It comes with attachments and stainless steel mixing bowl! Works great and the bowl is nice size I dont have to worry about stuff flying out!

Love this product. I have been using it for past 5 years. No complaints. So easy to use and clean. Kneeds dough in minutes. Happy to have it in my life. Its super easy to use.to kneed just put water and flour in appropriate ratio and done. Its different speeds give easy kneeding. Even easy to use for men too. One time investment for years. Looks wise is also very attractive. I got this product on thanksgivinf first but thought it might be messy to returned it. Then my husband got me this as valentines gift. I opened it thinkingif i don't like will return it. Believe me once i opened and used it never even kept in its box. Its lying on my kitchen shelf and has become a part of my life. I kneed almost 3-4 times in a week as we prefer eating flour tortillas and i prefer fresh dough for making them. Love it. I guarantee you just buy it and see the results. Kitchen aid is the best brand in these mixers I have seen so far. I would recommend this product

Excellent product with high energy!

This product will accomplish anything you really want it to! It has enough power to handle dough, as well at the stamina to whip egg whites or whipped cream quickly! On the downside, it can have trouble scraping up the bottom of the bowl, but using a spatula intermittently can help with that (this seems to be a problem with most mixers). The timer function is wonderful for exacting recipes, and the dial knob is easy to use. The mixer comes with a dough attachment, as well as a whisk and a standard beater attachment, all of which are well-made and sturdy. The optional features, such as the food processor and pasta maker are alright, but I have found they are more user-friendly on the Kitchen-Aid mixer (the pasta maker on the Cuisinart seems to cause the pasta to fall down in one large clump, instead of sheets!). Overall, and excellent product, lots of power, and the ability to handle many kitchen tasks!

I have used and tried this mixer several times for baking goods. I have used it for everything from cookies to brownies and cakes and pies, basically all sorts of baked goods. I have basically only used it for sweets and such so I can only really review on how the machine handled with these but as a whole I have never been let down by this mixer. It is really powerful and for the price was above and beyond in regards to my expectations. Mixing Performance It is a standard and up to parr mixer. I haven't yet tried it really on dinners but as for desserts I am really happy with it, I kind of wish that it wasn't plastic though. But it is to be expected for the price I would say. Ease of Cleaning All the plastic parts wipe off and wash down pretty easily by hand or you can even throw them into the dishwasher if preferred. Design It is a pretty simple and basic design but it works overall for what it is. Durability Nothing as of yet has broken off or come loose for me which is a nice plus.

Great Mixer!

I did my research before spending money on a stand mixer. I wanted something equally proficient for thin batters as well as thick bread dough. The deep bowl and powerful motor makes it almost unnecessary to scrape down the sides of the bowl. The slow-start feature mixes new ingredients without splashing them. The splatter guard keeps mess in the bowl while also allowing me to add ingredients without taking everything apart. It has a timer that counts down and turns itself off, which is great for those times I have my hands full when time is up. Every piece is easy to clean. It is a total workhorse that looks beautiful in my kitchen Mixing Performance I made wheat bread using this mixer last night. It handed the beginning stage of mixing the yeast, molasses, and white flour very well. When it was time to add additional flour and other ingredients, I used the handy spout and continued mixing. Once the dough became stiff it was easy to tilt the head and switch to the dough hook. Kneading 4 minutes with the dough hook was so much easier than doing it by hand 5 to 8 minutes. It was my first time using an appliance to make bread, and I was totally pleased. I have whipped egg whites using the whisk and added granulated sugar. The result was a light and fluffy meringue with little effort. Ease of Cleaning The splash guard keeps ingredients from splashing all over the mixer and the rest of my kitchen. Afterward, the mixer itself was still clean. The splash guard comes off easily for washing. The dough hook and mixing paddle are non-stick so washed up quickly and easily. Although the bowl locks in place during use, it releases easily. Ease of Use This is a no-brainer to use. Everything is labeled well. The count-down timer makes it easier than ever to keep track of mixing time while I am off working with another dish. Design It's a beautiful machine for a modern kitchen, but I do wish it would have a larger selection of colors. Durability I haven't had it very long but I do expect it to last a very long time, based on the great warranty offered by the company.

Major disappointment

1

I bought the cuisinart stand mixer to replace my 6qt kitchenaid. After I went through two worm gears on my newer model kitchenaid, I knew it was not the mixer for me (or my bread-making)! I scoured reviews and decided to go with this machine. Upon its arrival, I realized so much of the darn thing was made out of plastic! You can imagine my frustration, as I was trying to buy something more durable. The plastic piece that covers the attachment in the front did night align properly, so it would not even close! Since I was replacing my kitchenaid for a better kneading machine, the first thing I used it for was a small batch of bagel dough. At first, it seemed to do all right, aside from it being extremely loud. Then, it started to wobble and jostle and I feared it would bounce right off the edge of the counter!!! It looked like something off of a cartoon, my mixer was dancing all over the place. After several minutes, it overheated and shut off entirely. I tried several recipes that came with the machine and had the same bad luck. Apparently there are quite a few bad batches of these and I was one of the unfortunate recipients. The company was very frustrating to deal with and would not take responsibility for the malfunctioning machine; they believed it was damaged during shipping. Upon further research, I read many reviews that had precisely the same experience I did. Such a bummer. Bring back metal machines, America!! Design Like I mentioned, plastic parts everywhere! Poorly made pieces that don't fit together quite right. Durability An expensive piece of JUNK! Save your money and buy a Bosch universal or a Blendtec mixer/blender.

I love this mixer! I bought it to mix bread dough and it easily can handle a recipe for 2 loaves. Love the timer and fold function comes in handy when you need to mix for a specific time and the fold was great for mixing in nuts or chocolate chips into cookies and the like. Highly recommend!

One of my favorite appliances

I think my favorite part of my Cuisinart mixer is the sheer amount of choices I have in terms of speed: 12 different settings! I actually have the option to use a speed that isn't quite super-fast, but not quite slow either. In addition to that, there's a "fold" and timer, both of which are so, so useful. Comparing this to my experience with a Kitchen Aid, it's much easier to load the bowl. It's also lighter and, in my opinion, quieter. The Cuisinart mixer doesn't quite move around as much when it's on: it tends to stay in the same position, even at the highest speed. Even though there aren't as many attachments available for the Cuisinart, I love it. I use this for both my pastries and my bread: the dough hook is nice and sturdy, and prevents the dough from slipping and sliding (even if there's additional fats added, i.e. brioche). It kneads my breads well, well enough that after proofing I'm left with a beautiful loaf that amazes my family and friends.

Cuisinart Helped Me Savor the Good Life.

After I retired, I wanted to indulge myself by broadening my baking and cooking skills. When I lucked upon a sale of kitchen appliances, I was thrilled to acquire the Cuisinart 12-Speed Stand Mixer SM-55. The stand mixer comes equipped with: a chef's whisk for whipping potatoes or egg whites; a flat mixing paddle for cookie and cake batters; a dough hook for kneading doughs for breads; and a splashguard with pour spout. Subsequently, I purchased the Blender and Food Processor attachments to prepare vegetables, and the Citrus Juicer attachment to whip up juices and shakes. I prefer stainless steel cooking equipment, such as the Cuisinart mixing bowl. The study bowl with handles is shiny, easy to clean, and makes me feel like a professional chef. The depth of the bowl eliminates splatter, and it's big enough to hold large combinations of ingredients. The speed control knob allows me to combine the ingredients gently at first, then advance to higher speeds. I highly recommend the Cuisinart line of mixers and attachments, especially the SM-55. As Cuisinart's logo supports, using the Stand Mixer SM-55 has allowed me to savor culinary experiences more. Shhh! Don't tell my daughters they will be receiving theirs soon under the tree.
