Review Summary:

I got the Cuisinart™ 5.5 Quart Stand Mixer in polished chrome couple of years ago. It has a good capacity and a powerful engine to handle cooking and baking tasks. It comes with three accessories, for mixing, whiping and kneading dough. I also got an option blender accessory which saved me getting another appliance. It has 12 speeds, which is very convenient. Auto shutoff Countdown Timer is very useful as well. Cuisinart has other optional attachments that can be purchased separately. There are three power outlets which you can connect accessories to which will allow you to blend, process food, squeeze juice from your favorite citrus fruits, or even make homemade pasta and grind your all kinds of meat. What's included:

  • 800-watt stand mixer
  • 12 speeds
  • 15-minute countdown timer and auto shut-off
  • 5-1/2-quart stainless-steel bowl
  • Gentle-fold functions
  • Chef's whisk, dough hook and , flat mixing paddle
  • It has a splash-guard to avoid mess
  • Made of die-cast metal
  • It measures 15-1/2 by 10 by 12-1/2 inches
  • 3-year product warranty and a 5-year motor warranty

The mixing stainless-steel bowl comes with handles, easy for holding, scraping and cleaning and you don't need to rotate the bowl the mixer takes care of everything. It handles large and small batches equally well. The mixer has a slow-start function that reduces splatter. And the fold function allows you to mix like professional chefs. Pulsing generates 1-1/2 to 2-1/2 revolutions. It is easy to clean it with a damp cloth in fact it still looks as new! The tools are dishwasher safe so it is really easy to use in the kitchen. Plus when I compared the warranty to KitchenAid stand mixer found it to be much better and Cuisinart is a prominent company, in fact I own their food processor and hand-mixer as well. It has a tilt head that locks into place and it is lighter and has a smaller footprint than competitors so it takes less counter space.

I highly recommend this product, I am very happy with the results, it is easy to clean, powerful to handle larger jobs, I have not had any issues with it at all and if I ever had to replace it I would probably try to buy it again.


  • Powerful yet lightweight
  • Does large and small batches equally well
  • Good Warranty
  • Good accessories

  • Cons

  • The splash-guard is sometimes hard to put on and take off
