A powerhouse
I received this mixer for my birthday after years of rationalizing NOT needing one and comparing it to the other very popular brand of stand mixer. All of my kitchen power tools are Cuisinart, and I trust the quality of the brand. I don't know how I ever lived this long without this in my kitchen. I find myself baking more frequently and making things I otherwise would not have made without the aid of this mixer. I have used it for mixing various cookie doughs, cake batters, some fairly heavy bread doughs, and to blend seasoning and other ingredients into ground meat (a process which also texturizes the meat), as well as experimenting with different types of meringues and buttercreams. The motor is a powerhouse-- it has never struggled with any recipe I have thrown at it. The speed dial is very easy to locate and adjust without having to look. The bowl, attachments, and motor unit are solid and sturdy-- there is nothing flimsy about this machine. It is easy to clean and looks beautiful in my kitchen (I got the red model). I look forward to purchasing the pasta attachment for the mixer soon. The only bad thing about this mixer is that I have easily gained 15 lbs from all of the baking I've done. Instead of looking through cookbooks and wishing I had the time to make a certain cake or pastry, I can just get up and whip something together in 10 minutes (including clean-up). The price, the quality, the ease-of-use, and the aesthetics of this mixer should make it a staple in anyone's kitchen. I love it.

Well built
Bought it for my wife for Christmas to knead dough for homemade bread. Made the job simple, clean and fast. Beats kneading the dough by hand.

Received this mixer as a gift for Christmas. Every time I use it, for bread dough or cakes, I have to keep raising the hook/paddle in order to scrape the unmixed ingredients off the sides and bottom of the bowl. It is truly frustrating. There must be a solution to this problem, but other than holding the bowl up out of its base, I don't see it.

    Some the look and operation of the mixer!
    Very well made. Color looks great in my kitchen. Bought the silver color one and works great. Mixes all the down to the bottom. Also a quiet mixer not loud like others. The mixer had a bluish look to it but silver. Makes it stand out. Comes with other three handles too.

    The Right Product
    I researched before purchasing my stand mixer and everything I read about the Cuisinart Stand Mixer was true. I have used it to make my pizza and pastry dough so far and it has worked beautifully. I am very happy I purchased a Cuisinart.

    best bang for the buck
    this is a great mixer very powerful and easy to use . Having shopped for several different brands decided to go with the Cuisinart 5.5 stand mixer because of the power and speeds has a bigger bowl and a cover that is standard with this model .The Kitchenaid mixers that are rated the same as this one are a lot more money and have less warranty so this is the best bang for the buck

    Very good option for your mixing needs
    So far, it's been a very good machine to use. We like to make breads and desserts and this unit has done an admirable job doing so. We have yet to test the grinder we purchased with the unit but believe it will be just as useful and functional. A great product.

    Burned out from the start, disappointed
    I was making a 2 loaf bread dough recipe, and the machine was rocking back and forth a lot, then it overheated and wouldn't turn back on. I had just added the last of the flour for the recipe, it mixed the dough for 1 minute and stopped working. Disappointing. I returned it immediately and bought a Bosch instead.

    Cuisinart 5.5 qt Stand Mixer
    This Cuisinart mixer costs less than the Kitchen Aid, and I find it performs just fine, as well as the Kitchen Aid. I am hoping it lasts equally as long.

    Love this mixer
    Great mixer! I like the way it is easy to use and the instruction booklet has the speeds listed for each task. I would like some options for additional bowls like the Kitchen Aid has.

    Makes a great cup of coffee
    Simple to use. The burr grinder is terrific, though it would be nice to have adjustable settings. Some may find the grind a bit coarse, but that’s our only quibble. Easy to use, produces a cup quicker and hotter than the Keurig it replaced. Doesn’t take a lot of counter space, and the price is right, too. All in all a great coffeemaker.

    Best Decision Ever!
    Love it! I've been looking at stand mixers for a few years but couldn't justify the cost. I do a lot of baking and decided I would take the plunge. I did a lot of research on the different brands out there and settled on the Cuisinart. Best decision ever! It's light weight, easy to work and does a perfect job. I've already baked many loaves of bread, cookies and a few cakes!

    Game-changer
    Turns out first-rate bread and cookie dough with far more ease and quietude than my last, albeit smaller standup mixer of another brand.

    Great mixer
    This mixer is powerful and quiet. I found scraping the bottom of the bowl was no big deal. I also love the artic blue color and am glad I purchased a Cuisinart.

    Disappointed, wanted to love it but attachments not low enough to mix properly, could not turn the screw to adjust therefore had to place a folded paper towel under bowl to raise it in order to mix all ingredients in bowl. Customers should not have to improvise in order to mix at correct depth. Very disappointed, may have to return to store and purchase a different brand.

    Disappointed
    Disappointed. The attachments did not reach low enough to mix all ingredients, the screw to adjust and lower would not turn no matter how hard I tried, therefore I had to use a folded paper towel to raise the bowl. Ridiculous that customers have to improvise since Cuisinart has no quality control to be sure all attachments sold with the mixer are at the correct height to mix properly. Very Disappointed may return mixer to store.

    Cuisinart 5.5 qt. Stand mixer
    I wanted this mixer because the Sunbeam Mixmaster that I had did not have enough power but I did not want a Kitchenaid because it was too heavy. I have made several things in the Cuisinart Mixer at this point and I am very happy with the performance. It is a little strange to me that the bowl doesn’t turn (like with the Sunbeam) but the paddle does an excellent job of mixing the ingredients. It also is very powerful—I’d put it right up there with the Kitchenaid. Overall, I really love it.
