When I'm in the Kitchen, I become: Cooking Enthusiast
I purchased this mixer to replace a Kitchen Aid Artisan mixer that I bought 3 years ago, which had problems. The Breville is a nicer mixer, with a rich looking stainless steel exterior, and well designed handles that make it easy to move (and it's heavy). The bowl is easy to insert and remove - this was a problem I had with the Kitchen Aid, as bowl repeatedly got stuck after mixing. The Brevillle does an excellent job mixing cake and cookie batters. Beware, however, the motor is powerful, and don't do what I did, which is to turn it to its highest speed too quickly, or you will end up with batter on the ceiling!
