My wife uses this mixer a lot
December 30, 2013
Bought this mixer 2 years ago for my wife as a birthday gift, to replace a kitchedaide stand mixer (small one). She bakes quite a bit and wanted a
mixer with good capacity and a strong motor. The design of our kitchen cabinetry will not allow anything taller than 16", so Kichen Aide was off the list.
My wife loves the power and capacity. Also the countdown timer is a very good feature! (HELLO KITCHEN AIDE???)
But here are 3 problems she has:
1) Mixer is VERY LOUD!!! Sounds like a jet engine on take-off.
2) Beaters do not get to material in the bottom of the bowl or sides. There are after market attachements that have a scraper, but unfortunately have never been able to find one in stock.
3) Timer switch assembly recently came loose/broke off the side of the mixer.
If we did not have the issue with our cabinet height, she would go back to a Kitchen Aide in a heartbeat!
Pros: Power, Size, Speed
Cons: Quality, Loud, does not mix all materials efficiently.

Outstanding performance!

I needed more bowl capacity than my older KitchenAid mixer offered, but the larger KA mixers are too high for my mixer cupboard. After reviewing several brands, I decided to try the Cuisinart. I've had the mixer for 3 years, and have absolutely no complaints. It handles everything from egg whites to bread dough with ease. I love the timer--definitely a great convenience. I did purchase a scraper blade separately, because that gadget simplifies the mixing step with many recipes.
