used the mixer to make italian torte from scratch last night. It's slow speeds (to fold in egg whites) were great! made 5 cup cookies a while ago and the thing couldn't handle it. wouldnt recommend trying large batches in it. otherwise it is a very good mixer. the finish and the quality are very very good. love the timer option. will recommend others to check mine out before going out to buy another brand. what with corporate strategies like 'planned obsolescence" wonder what will happen after 1 year when the manufacturer's warranty runs out.
I bought this stand mixer for my wife after her ancient "no name" mixer recently died. I did a fair amount of research before ordering this mixer. I believe that this stand mixer is much better that the Kitchen Aid mixers. Breville builds these things to last (no plastic gears). The mixer has a really good looking finish, is lighter and much quieter than its competition. My wife loves it. The mixer also matches the Breville K cup coffee brewer we already had. Lastly, I can't say enough about the way Overstock packs and ships their items, not to mention the quick delivery at only 3 to 4 business days. A+++
Hey, we've each got a Lexus but I'm not sure they're worth the money either. So I'm a cheapskate with money. With that caveat we enjoy this mixer. It looks very impressive and has done every task thrown at it. Make friends envy you even if they don't know why. Go for it.
Super mixer...love the single beater. Very happy with this.

I'm very glad we got this. It's been working hard for my family since we purchsed it (fast shipping as always) and we love it! I plan to do a lot more creative cooking in the upcoming holiday season. Just perfect for any family with kids. Well designed and well made. It feels sturdy, saves time, and it's easy to use.
