Very pleased.
I have only used my new mixer once but I am very pleased with it. It mixed the ingredients well all the way to the bottom of the bowl.

Easy clean up and great mess prevention
Not only does the mixer do a thorough job, it is very easy to clean. The splash guard prevents the usual mess when adding dry ingredients.

Nice mixer
First stand mixer. Really like it so far. The onky thing that concerned me is when i tried to mix bread. The head of the mixer was banging up and down, when it mixing blade hit the dough. Looked online, but onky seen the Whirpool mixer having the same issue. Tried the same fix, but didnt work.

Disappointed
It is very difficult to add to the mixing bowl without moving the beater out of the way and stopping the mixer. Also, a glass bowl would be a big help.

Fantastic Value!
This is a great piece of kitchen equipment. I love that it is more light weight than my previous Kitchen Aide Stand Mixer, since I have to pull it in and out of my cabinet. The first thing I made was pizza dough, and it mixed the dough in 2 minutes! Next thing I made was a whipped cream frosting for an ice cream cake. Normally whipped cream takes several minutes (up to 10 min.) to come together; with my new Cuisinart it took literally 2.5 minutes and done! Great job - very happy with my purchase.

Disappointed
This is a beautiful mixer but I hated it. It doesn't mix the bottom ingredients or the side. I had to do most of the work which is not what I wanted to do. I purchased this after replacing my 17 year old kitchen aid stand mixer which still works great but is to small. I had to return the Cuisinart Stand Mixer.

5.5 qt stand mixer
I found it very difficult to scrape the bowl. There was not enough room without having to stop mixer and raise the head. I think the bowl should be larger.

Cuissinart stand mixer and grinder
I LOVE my new Cuissinart mixer, and now my hunny got the grinder too. I am going to use that today to make some sausage. The quality in Cuissinart products is excellent.

Disappointed
I had to get a new mixer because I got a spoon stuck in the beaters of my former mixer (Sunbeam) and I could not find new beaters to fit in it. From the reviews I thought this Cuisinart would be perfect, but I am disappointed. I have only used it once, making a cheesecake. First of all, with only one beater, I could not get a spatula or a spoon in to scrape the bowl. I had to turn it off, scrape the sides, and then mix some more. I had to do this numerous times. Then when I thought I was done mixing, there were still lumps of cream cheese in the batter. So I mixed it some more. It seemed too soupy, but there were still lumps. Maybe it works better for cakes or cookies. Not recommended.

Love my Cuisinart
I've used this mixer to mix cake batter and to whip heavy whipping cream. It did a great job with both, especially the heavy cream. I did so and scrape down the bowl once with the cake batter, but I had to do that with my KitchenAid mixer. I sold that mixer after owning it many many years because it weighed 24 pounds and I'm now in my 70's. So far I am very happy with my Cuisinart.

Cuisinart 5.5 quart stand mixer
I absolutely love it!! I researched the CA and the KA a lot! I read all the reviews I could find, and asked other peoples’ opinions. I went with the CA and could not be happier! We have a family tradition, and bake Fulare, which is a Portuguese bread, every Easter. We make anywhere from 10 to 30 breads by hand. This year I only made 10 and I used my CA!!! What an easy time!!! I used 7 cups of flour and the wet ingredients. I added the flour to the bowl first and then put the machine on 1, I slowly added the liquid ingredients and then increased the speed to 2. It mixed perfectly! The dough did climb the hook, but it was easy to take it off and continue to mix. If the dough was a bit wet I just added some flour and continue to mix. I never had to take the dough out and mix more by hand it was perfect. It took me no longer than 10 minutes, at the most to get the perfect dough. The 7 cups of flour ( once it was given time to rise) gave me two perfect breads! I made 5 doughs and it probably took me less time and aggravation to do this, than to mix it by hand! I turned the speed up to 3 maybe once during each mix, but just for a couple of seconds. I did not want to heat up the machine. It did get a bit warm on the top, but while I was melting butter and mixing ingredients for the next batch it cooled right off! Now I know I can make it throughout the year, and not worry about dragging out my huge bread box, and mix everything by hand!!! If you have any doubt in your mind between the KA and the CA I would go with the CA, for the cost, the beautiful colors (I love the periwinkle blue color!) and the mixing, it was worth it!! Oh and it never jumped around on the counter, it did make some vibrating noise when I turned it to 3, but wasn’t bad at all!!! Go for it, you will not be disappointed, and happy baking!!!!

Better than kitchen aid
I debated over this or another more popular, more expensive brand. I am so happy I decided to go with this one! Not only is the color aestheticly pleasing, it has more speeds than my old K-aid and is much more quiet. I bake at least three times a week and couldn’t be happier with my purchase!
