Good quality for the price
Mixer is great. I don’t like the way stuff sticks to the bowl that comes with the mixer. Overall definitely worth what it costs though.

Does the job!
I really like my new Precision Master 500 Watt mixer. My old Kitchenaid 325 Watt finally went to stand mixer heaven and was smoking after trying to whip up cold butter and sugar (had it for 20+ yrs.) Needless to say I needed something more powerful if I was to continue baking those special cookies so I chose this model for its price point and great reviews. Of course when I received it, the first thing I did was mix cold cold butter w/sugar and this baby handled it like a champ! I like the 12 speeds on this as well. I ended up buying the Agave color and it's so pretty! Cuisinart for the Win!

The mixer is great except the paddle and whisk do not reach the sides or bottom in this 5.5 quart.

Beautiful
This is my first stand mixer. I haven't owned it long but have used it 3 or 4 times. It's quite and smooth. The motor seems plenty powerful.

Powerful, quiet, perfect!
I make all my own bread and, while my old West Bend stand mixer had been very reliable, it just couldn't handle heavy bread dough. This mixer has all the bells and whistles of the more expensive one plus a stronger motor and 2 extra speeds. It was a no brainer and my bread is better than ever!

User friendly
I bought it to my 17 years old daughter who likes cooking. She only spent 5-10 minutes to make the dough of the bread by using this mixer. She loves it so much.

Great choice for a stand mixer.
After watching stand mixer reviews online, I chose the Cuisinart Precision Master stand mixer. On arrival, It was well-packaged. I have used it to cream ingredients, mix cookie batter and knead bread. When mixing, the beater reaches to the bottom of the bowl, so no issue with unmixed ingredients. Easy to use, easy to clean. I am very pleased with the quality and function of this product, as I am with my other Cuisinart small appliances.

ELEGANT WORKHORSE!
Fantastic replacement for my former brand. Used it again last night! It powered through the 5.5 cups of flour to perfectly kneed the bread dough with minimal signs of trouble. The motor got a little warm, with the 9-minute kneeling time, but did just fine. I love this mixer, and am eager to start buying attachments ASAP! Thrilled with this wise purchase!

Very nice!
I am very happy with this Cuisinart mixer. I researched several different brands and Precision Master™ 5.5-Quart Stand Mixer had more power and speed along with comparable attachments than other models. I have even use it with recipes that recommend hand mixing with great results. And it's beautiful! I selected the brushed chrome and it matches my kitchen perfectly. Very happy!

Cuisinart Stand Mixer
Excellent stand mixer. Very sturdy, well made, with plenty of power. I wish there were more choices of mixing bowls and attachments but that’s a very tiny complaint amidst a whole lot of positives. I enjoy this mixer very much.

Pretty but a little disappointed
Beautiful and sturdy, but it doesn’t mix throughly, it doesn’t reach ingredients in the bottom of the bowl. Kinda disappointment considering the price…

Beauty and Strength
This is a thing of beauty. Extremely stylish. Art deco inspired. Very sturdy and very simple to use. Only quibble is that you need to make sure the ingredients at the very bottom of the bowl have been adequately mixed in. Easy to do.

Great for bread dough!
Amazing quality machine! I'm 54 and have been mixing everything by hand for decades. My bread dough game got a big boost with this purchase! I'm more than likely going to get the ice cream attachments for it as well. This machine (5.5qt) is an awesome option compared to the others costing much more!

The Right Choice!
All I know I made the right choice. Most people that bakes always buy the KitchenAid. I wanted to be different and unique.

Lifesaver for An Older Cook
I decided to buy a stand mixer because while I still enjoy baking and cooking, I lack the hand and arm strength to mix heavy bread, cake, and cookie doughs by hand or to cut butter into flour with a pastry blender. I did some comparison shopping and liked the reviews I saw on the Cuisinart Precision Master 5.5 Quart mixer. So far, I've been impressed with the power of the mixer for big jobs like blending and kneading dough and cutting butter into flour, and the overall performance of the mixer. I also found a Facebook page dedicated to the Cuisinart stand mixer with recipe and tips. I would suggest that Cuisinart promote the different Facebook pages dedicated to the different Cuisinart applicances - there are some good tips on those pages. For example, someone wrote how disappointed they were in the Precision Master's ability to cream butter and sugar. She was using the flat paddle to do this and was not happy with the results. People on the FB page quickly told her that she should use the whisk instead of the flat paddle to cream butter and sugar and switch to the paddle to incorporate the dry ingredients. I'm glad I saw this tip! I was also very surprised to see that people use the mixer for meatloaf and to shred chicken! Those things are on my list of things to try with this appliance. I've been very pleased with everything I've done with the mixer which includes breads, scones, cookies, and pizza dough. The dough hook is amazing!

Easy to Use Kitchen Helper for all recipes.
This is an amazing kitchen helper. I make bread and no longer have to knead it because the dough hook does all the work, I make pancakes and the paddle does all the mixing. I love this machine and wonder how I did without it all these years.

Stop looking and get this amazing mixer!
This is a fantastic mixer. It is heavy duty but not too large. It has a large mixing bowl. Also the cord is very long which is great. It gets the contents at the bottom of the bowl. Makes dough like a champ.

Just ok
Very beautiful but I was disappointed. It never scrape the dough from the bottom of the bowl. I had to stop many times and scrape the bottom and walls to incorporate the dough together. More than 10 minutes mixing and no success. I guess I'll say it's a just ok mixter. Not a fan.
