More than 30 years ago, Cuisinart changed the way the world cooked. Now it's changing the way the world mixes with the Cuisinart stand mixer. The new extra-large Cuisinart 5.5-quart mixer has the power, capacity, and precision to handle any job a recipe requires and delivers more power to mix even the heaviest dough. There’s also more capacity to double and triple recipes. The mixer comes with three accessories, allowing you to mix, whip, or even knead dough. It has 12 speeds to ensure splatter-free starts and fabulous finishes. In addition, Cuisinart offers optional attachments that can be purchased separately. Each attachment connects to one of the three power outlets on the mixer (two on the top and one on the front) to let you blend, process food, squeeze juice from your favourite citrus fruits, make homemade pasta, or grind your own meats.
This stand mixer has the power, control, capacity, and precision engineering to handle any job a recipe calls for. The processional quality 800 watt motor mixes through the heaviest dough without slowing down. Twelve mixing speeds support every mixing task. A slow start eliminates splatters. The ultra-gentle fold function sifts dry ingredients or combines delicate ingredients without deflating them. A 15-minute countdown timer tracks the mixing time for you, and shuts off the mixer automatically when finished. The 5½ quart stainless steel bowl has double handles which make even full bowls easy to attach, detach, and carry. The tilt-back mixer head provides easy access to the bowl and beater; a head-lift release lever securely locks the stand mixer head into the raised tilt-back position. With three accessories, you can mix, whip, and knead dough. The flat mixing paddle is used for stirring, mixing, and beating ingredients/mixtures; it is most frequently used for mixing cookies, cakes, batters (use flat mixing paddle to start the batter for yeast breads then switch to dough hook for a more evenly mixed dough), and frostings. It is also used for making pie crusts, biscuits and shortcakes, dough for pasta, combining ingredients for meatloaf or meatballs, and mashing potatoes. The chef's whisk incorporates air into ingredients/mixtures; use it when whipping eggs, egg whites or heavy cream, as well as in recipes for angel food cake, chiffon cake, meringue or dacquoise, some types of candy such as divinity, and for whipping potatoes after they have been mashed using the flat mixing paddle. The dough hook is used for the final mixing and kneading of yeast doughs for breads, rolls, pizza/focaccia, and yeast-raised coffee cakes. A splash guard with a pour spout prevents spattering when mixing and adding ingredients. Three attachment power outlets allow for the connection of a variety of attachments (each sold separately), including a food processor, blender,
