We love ours. We use it whenever we can. Our kitchen is humming during the holidays. We love holidays. We make awesome breads, cookies and pastries and send them out all over the country to friends and family. Some of our mom and pop bakeries are a joke when it comes to comparing our wonderful baking to their dry, and dull flavored stuff. That mixer is worth every penny. If you ever saw my kitchen you know that we love to cook and bake. My husband and I do not cut corners, on anything, and this 7 quart stand mixer looks like it's not kidding and it is perfect in every way. Whoever walks into our kitchen eat themselves silly.

Although I have had a couple KA stand mixers and I have been happy with them, I decided to go to the "other" side and get this 7Qt brand. With not only the price compared to the KA 7Qt and the good reviews I read online, I broke and ordered it. I used it for a ciabatta bread. As most bakers know, this is a very sticky dough and was mixed with just a paddle, not the dough hook. The machine jumped all over my countertop and was so noisy, The top portion of the unit has a lifttop that encases the area for the special attachments (must be purchased seperately) that was chattering away, along with the loud motor..it was crazy noisy! The mixer had stopped twice during the mixing, which indicates the motor was overloaded per the instructions, which states it doesn't happen often (wrong!) and the dough wasn't unyielding in the least! For the reasons above, thanks anyway Cuisinart it is GOING BACK-I will pay the extra to keep my sanity and go back to my preferred first choice.

This is my second cuisinart stand mixer. I own the 5.5 and now the 7. I keep a kosher kitchen so one is designated for cooking with dairy and one with meat. I love love love both my mixers. Thank you QVC for the payment installment options. Its makes this expensive item more affordable each month. I previously owned a Kitchen Aid for years and suffice it to
Say everything you hear about their customer service is true. They are horrid and a waste of time. After investing so much money I want a reliable product AND a company who stands behind that product ( yes KA I ask for way too much ). Cuisinart gives me all of that plus! Some. I have Lupus and my joints are in constant pain of some level or another. My cuisinart lets me get the job done and not feel enslaved to my disabilities. I recently bought a cuisinart 12 cup food processor as well. What can I say? Im hooked! Cuisinart? Will you marry me? Lol

I had an expensive model of a competing brand and was happy with it. I bought this Cuisinart and am ECSTATIC with it. I can make three loaves of bread at the same time. The 1000 watts are fantastic and you will not bog down with this mixer. I wish I had bought it sooner.
Rated 5 out of 5 by ee3kids A mixer above all others! Fab Fab Fabulous!
I have had 3 stand mixers over the years. The value of my Cuisinart has surpassed the first 2 stand mixers. Especially that one that comes in all kinds of colors. I guess I was "Color blind!" I cant express how powerful the motor is on this mixer. This mixer has a splatter shield that in my oppinion is pure genus! now when I mix cakes, breads or a 5 lb bags of mashed potatoes, everything stays in the bowl. Open spout on shield for adding liquids, eggs, etc. large 7 qt. stainless steel bowl will handle double cookie batches, cake mixes with a breeze. I bought the meat grinder and blender for those frozen drinks we so love, which simply sits atop of my mixer. The pulse feature on this mixer works great for mixing crusts as well as getting breads started. The adjustable speed dial and timer are fabulous as well. Simply set timer and this mixer automaticly shuts down. Take it from me, a mom of 3 -12th graders. This mixer is worth every penny! I use 3-4 x's a week and i'm going on my 5th year with this mixer:)
