Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

The Cuisinart Precision Master 5.5-Quart Stand Mixer proved in our tests that it is a kitchen workhorse that can blend, whip and knead with the best mixers on the market. It comes with a big and durable stainless steel bowl, three attachments and the option to buy four others for other cooking tasks.

What reviewers didn't like

The speed dial is round, which makes it hard to operate if your hands are sticky and batter-y. (The KitchenAid has a lever, which I can operate with my palm or even my arm). Plus, the little tiny grooves in the dial is really hard to clean well. My batter and flour always wanted to settle into these little grooves.
