Housed in durable die-cast metal, this stand mixer features a powerful 1,000-watt motor that can handle the heaviest mixing tasks. Its extra-large, 7-quart, stainless-steel bowl accommodates big batches–even double or triple recipes. The unit also provides 12 mixing speeds, along with a 15-minute countdown timer and automatic shutoff, for maximum precision. Choose the slow-start function to eliminate splatter or the ultra-gentle fold function to carefully blend in delicate ingredients. The mixer's tilt-back head allows for easy access to the mixing bowl and makes attaching accessories simple.

Accessories include a chef's whisk, a flat mixing paddle, and a dough hook, as well as a splashguard. The whisk aerates ingredients to increase volume or can also be used on slow speed to gently combine dry ingredients. Contoured to reach the bottom and sides of the bowl, the flat mixing paddle ensures thorough mixing. The dough hook makes hand kneading obsolete, while the splashguard offers an extra-wide pouring spout for easily adding ingredients. The stand mixer also contains three power outlets, including a high-speed outlet for its optional dedicated attachments (meat grinder, citrus juicer, blender, food processor, or pasta maker–all sold separately). The stand mixer measures 15-1/2 by 11 by 14-1/2 inches and carries a three-year product warranty and a five-year motor warranty.

Love My Mixer

After reading the (many) low ratings of both Kitchen-Aid and Cuisinart mixers, I was a little fearful of spending so much money on something that may break quickly and may not be able to handle continual use. However, I have been using this machine every few days for the past month and a half, and I cannot believe I have cooked without a large stand mixer all my life. This machine is easy to use, so much more efficient than a hand mixer, and finally I have a bowl large enough to hold my double recipe mixes. I have made numerous bread doughs, cookies, cake batters, and very large batches of frosting. My machine does not “walk across the counter” like some others have stated. As for bread doughs, I no longer have to knead by hand–I simply let the dough hook do its job while I clean up the kitchen. The only time my machine sounded like it was straining or it started to rock a bit was when I had a heavy dough that was on too high of a setting and was throwing the dough so hard it was throwing the machine off balance. I have found (and the directions say) bread doughs need to be on the lowest of settings. When I first saw the video on that, I thought that was strange because you would think heavy doughs would require more power, but they actually require less–just more time at a low and slow setting. However, even though my mixer bowl is the largest capacity (7 quart), my bread batches have been normal size recipes–those that make about two loaves. I haven’t tried to double those recipes, and maybe others who have had issues with their machines were filling up their bowls with more ingredients than I have yet tried. With that being said, I hope this machine lasts a long time because I have become very spoiled having so much power at my fingertips and saving so much time in the kitchen. I would be very sad having to go back to a hand mixer.

I think that this one is better than the other brand (having used both)

I’m happy that I went with the Cuisinart over other brands. There are numerous points to make to say why this a great mixer, but you could make some of the same points about the other brands. The deal breaker that made me go with Cuisinart (aside from the fact that I already owned other Cuisinart products that I was very happy with) is the fact that the mixing bowl is so tall. The height of the mixing bowl helps to keep what you are working on (whether bread dough or meat loaf) down in the pool instead of climbing up.

Would NOT recommend this mixer

Machine should have been able to mix a larger load without looking, sounding and shaking like it was going to fall apart

Pros: 1. This mixer is great at making yeast dough because of its power and large capacity.

Very Nice

This works great and we’re very happy we purchased it. We were torn between this and the “traditional” Kitchen Aid Normal and Pro models, but we went with this as it has a 1000w motor and the Kitchen Aid have I think a 375w and a 450w motors and the Kitchen Aid motors have an issue with burning out according to the reviews. This is very well made and looks a performs great.

Wife loves it

Technically my wife loves it. The extra 7th quart produces a lot more meaning less time mixing and more time doing make up and watching soap operas. (just kidding- she’d kill me if she saw that :)) Very good quality, easy to use, easy to recommend to others. She likes this a lot more than the 6 quart kitchen aid I had tried to get her.
