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.

A Bread Baker’s Long Term Report

 on December 14, 2016
By Al
I’m a bread baker. This requires a stout mixer that can mix a dough with up to 8 cups of flour. I read a review of this mixer where another bread baker said he was disappointed that a 10 cup dough bogged this mixer down. My experience is 10 cups would bog down any consumer-oriented mixer, and probably end its life prematurely. Too bad, but you will have to pay around $1000 for a low-end professional stand mixer for this job. I switched to the Cuisinart around 3 years ago, after killing a top of the line (in those days) Kitchen Aid, sending it in for repair ($150), and killing it again. I have not been able to kill the Cuisinart – and I’m an active bread baker. The down side to the Cuisinart is that it is not as handy for “normal” less-intensive jobs as the Kitchen Aid. It’s bowl it tall and skinny, and a not as easy to manipulate. But, it is tough, and I’ve not come close to breaking it with heavy loads of bread dough.

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.

Here are the things I love about this mixer

I bought this mixer after my KitchenAid 6quart lift mixer’s gears stripped out after one year. Here are the things I love about this mixer!

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

 on March 8, 2015

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.

I bought this mixer to replace a KitchenAid 6qt Pro …

By Mrs. Debra A. Meyers
I bought this mixer to replace a KitchenAid 6qt Pro Mixer. This mixer has withstood 14 batches of pizza dough, and over 60 batches a year of cookie dough. I have had it since 2012 and it has not failed me once. The KitchenAid froze solid while mixing pizza dough, during the holidays. They want $171.00 dollar to replace all of the gears. Bogus, My original KitchenAid is too small for my use now, but it still works 40 years later.

Needs better motor and controller

Needs better motor and controller. Not really heavy duty as advertised. It gets hot and shuts down mixing twelve cup bread some of the time just before you are done mixing. Been replaced once already.

I Love It!!!

I got my first kitchen aide at 16 and have only had one other in the 40 years since. I read a thousand reviews but wanted tilt head (hated the KA lift arm) and bigger. I never would have thought I would recommend something else but I am just so in love with this mixer I can’t believe it. It’s a little lighter which makes moving it easier as I get older so I like that. The size of the bowls combined with the tilt head is fabulous and easy to work with. I made 50 lbs of mashed potatoes for Christmas and with two bowls it was a dream. I’ve also made tons of cookies already and it’s just wonderful to operate. Seems to have all the power I need to double and triple batch cookies. I’m going to try bread next but expect it will work just as we’ll. highly recommend.
