Summary: This is really a straightforward mixer and very easy to handle. For openers it's light weight, so easy to move around the counter, it has the bowl scraper paddle for cake mixing, it has the count up and count down timer and the dough hook is a snap to clean. This is a mixer of dough and cakes etc. period. It has 575 watt motor and performs kneading and other tasks with ease. The mixer does walk on the counter but only at high speed, but most seem to do that.
Summary: I've had a few stand mixers The mixer arrived and it was the color ordered. It fits perfectly on the counter under the cabinets, so it will be used often. I made a new loaf of yeast bread and the mixer performed well. The watts are exactly what friends have indicated they would prefer. Making yeasted breads etc. at least once a week, it appears this mixer will handle that as well as cakes. It is quiet compared to others and it doesn't seem to walk across the counter.
Summary: I bought this mixer based on the BBB reviews and by-passed the KitchenAid Pro to purchase this mixer instead. Mistake and here’s why. 1) The title of this product states “Pro” which gives the impression this is a professional series mixer and thus comparable to the KitchenAid Pro. Breville is not a Pro, even states in their warranty that if you use it for commercial purposes - the warranty is no longer valid.
Summary: I absolutely love this mixer. Was torn between the KitchenAid and this Breville. Although both mixers have good reputations and excellent features, I went with the Breville. The deciding factors for me were 1) additional power compared to the KitchenAid mixers in the same price range; 2) lighter weight that make it easier to move, if necessary; 3) the fact that the spatter guard was included in the price; 4) the electronic controls; and 5) the larger 5 quart standard...
Summary: This is the first stand up mixer I have. I've been coveting the Kitchenaid mixer for many years and have hesitated getting it because it is heavy and big and expensive. I saw this mixer at Sur Le Table and asked about it. It has more power than the Kitchenaid, a more streamlined design so it's not so bulky and heavy. I've been using it to make cookies recently and found that I have less clutter using it compared to when I use a hand held mixer. Love this product.
Summary: I bought this mixer because I like to make home-made bread. best purchase ever... making bread has become a super fast and mess-free process. I have owned this for about 2 years. I use it regularly (at least once a week) to mix bread and pizza dough and it has worked absolutely great. Before buying this I spent a lot of time researching other similar products and this one just seemed by far the best. I highly recommend to anyone who likes baking.
Summary: I have had this stand mixer for about 8 months now, and I have loved every minute. Apparently it has an automatic shut-off for when it overheats, but I have never had that happen, even with mixing up double batches of pizza dough. I use it several times a week for making homemade bread, cakes, whipping cream, icing, etc. I have never owned a Kitchenaid, but I have heard they like to "dance." Well my Breville does not.
