When I'm in the Kitchen, I become: Cooking Enthusiast
I recently purchased the Breville stand mixer, and have already put it through a LOT. By far, the thing that has impressed me the most (besides its sleek design) is the speed at which it mixes dough or whips cream, compared with the hand mixer I'd been using! I've used it for a variety of baking projects in the two weeks since I've gotten it, and the only complaint I can come up with is that the pouring shield is a little cumbersome to attach and to use. Other than that, I think Breville has designed a quality product, and I look forward to many years of use from it.
