Cuisinart SM-55


The Cuisinart SM-55 is a good machine to have in your kitchen. Although it has a few places where food can get stuck while mixing ingredients, we feel that can be easily taken care of if your mess is cleaned up quickly. However, because it does have...

The Cuisinart SM-55 comes with a five-year warranty on the motor

This stand mixer does not offer planetary mixing

This is a good stand mixer with a powerful motor.

Rated #1 by America's Test Kitchen


I seriously considered getting the Kitchen Aid Professional Series, but just could not bite the bullet when it came to spending that kind of money. When ATK rated the Cuisinart #1 I was overjoyed. Plus, I got it though Newegg with a $40 off coupon and...

Very strong, never gets tired. This was tested by America's Test Kitchen (Cooks Magazine) and was the winner for stand mixers. It did tie with the Kitchen Aid Professional, but it is quite a bit less money, therefore it got the win. I have used mine...

Splash guard feels fragile and is a bit of a pain to get on and off. I wish there were a way to set the timer to go down, instead of just up. It is a little touch sensitive and sometimes I go a minute too far and then have to reset the timer and start...

Great Product


This is a superior product. I have been casually shopping the more well known brand for years. I changed my mind very quickly to buy this product . I am happy that I did.

800 Watt motor ; Speed settings ramp up to keep you from wearing the ingredients on your face ; DVD tutorial for setup, use and several recipies ; Countdown timer very nice ; Fold button turns mixer 1.5 times to add fragile ingredients ; At time of...

You must be careful with the splash guard. Putting it on always make me feel like I'm about to break it. It simply fits into two grooves in the head, but it requires more pressure against the plastic than I would expect. Once it snaps into place, it is...

Best mixer on the planet


If you like to bake, this mixer is a must have. Three times more powerful than anothing in its class and it is a breeze to use (and clean). I have one of these in both of my kitchens and recommended it 100%
