Elegant and SophisticatedVery powerful mixer. Has a smaller footprint than it's competitor. Looks great on the counter and very easy to use and store. This is my first stand mixer and I didn't want/need all the attachments that one can get with the KA competitor. Only suggestion would be for Breville to make their own cover. I bought the stainless version and would like to protect it from dust etc. I have contacted Breville with my request and I'm not the only one who has called regarding this issue. Highly recommend this product, especially if you are a guy and are just learning how to cook. And although there were mashed potatoes EVERYWHERE, this was not the fault of the mixer but rather the user. :o)

Well designed stand mixerI purchased this mixer to replace a Kitchen Aid Artisan mixer that I bought 3 years ago, which had problems. The Breville is a nicer mixer, with a rich looking stainless steel exterior, and well designed handles that make it easy to move (and it's heavy). The bowl is easy to insert and remove - this was a problem I had with the Kitchen Aid, as bowl repeatedly got stuck after mixing. The Brevillle does an excellent job mixing cake and cookie batters. Beware, however, the motor is powerful, and don't do what I did, which is to turn it to its highest speed too quickly, or you will end up with batter on the ceiling!

So far I like the Breville mixer. I love the fact that all my pound cake batter was mixed completely (the scraper beater seemed to help that). I also like the fact that the mixer speeds are indicated in mixing terms rather than numbers. The timer is great as far as keeping track of how long something has been beaten.What I don't like is that it "walks" on the counter . This happened when I was creaming my butter and sugar. I will try it again soon to see if this is a continuing problem or something that I can adjust with my mixing speeds. I don't bake a lot, so hopefully I can figure out how to better set the mixer speed to avoid the "walking".

In love!I recently purchased the Breville stand mixer, and have already put it through a LOT. By far, the thing that has impressed me the most (besides its sleek design) is the speed at which it mixes dough or whips cream, compared with the hand mixer I'd been using! I've used it for a variety of baking projects in the two weeks since I've gotten it, and the only complaint I can come up with is that the pouring shield is a little cumbersome to attach and to use. Other than that, I think Breville has designed a quality product, and I look forward to many years of use from it.
