the mixer's motor isn't as strong or sturdy as advertised even for a moderate cooking & baking
8 September 2014
Summary: total rubbish. don't be fooled by the 1000 watt power. the mixer's motor isn't as strong or sturdy as advertised even for a moderate cooking & baking. i bought that mixer a little over month ago. it broke down all of the sudden, & when i tried to ship it back to get it fixed.
Summary: I hate my new cuisinart. The handles on the bowl are very awkward. The beater does not mix the ingredients in the very bottom adequately; there is a flaw in the design of the "splatter" cover. Every time you need to raise the head, you have to remember to turn the little handle.
Summary: Pros: 1. This mixer is great at making yeast dough because of its power and large capacity. 2. A small adjustment in liquid or flour will create a dough ball that cleans the bowl. 3. I let the dough rise right in the bowl after covering it with oil. 4. It also handled 4 batches of brownies.
Summary: Just the right size for just about anything. From cookie dough to home made bread crumbs. cleans very easily and the handles make it a cinch to pick up regardless of what is in it weight wise.
Summary: 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.
Summary: This 1000 watt or at least 1 horsepower mixer is fantastic and probably the strongest mixer to consumers for under $1000 -(SEE HOBART). Now before all you techie people criticize the 1Hp reference look up your NEC tables or Google Horsepower. This mixer is a monster compared to others in it's class.
