If you want an affordable bread dough stand mixer that comes with a variety of useful features, then you need to buy the uisinart SM-55BC. It is incredibly versatile, having three power ports that let it be used as a juicer, blender, pasta maker and more when you buy the separate attachments.
During use, the mixing arm automatically locks into place once it has been lowered into the bowl, thus helping prevent movement.
A splash guard sits firmly on top of the bowl and has a feed chute, allowing you to continue adding ingredients without making a mess. The dough hook, balloon whisk, flat-beater, bowl and spatula are all dishwasher-safe, making clean-up a doddle.
The Cuisinart SM-55BC has twelve speed settings, including a slow-start option that gradually works up to the setting you have selected rather than hitting it full power.
The “fold” feature lets you gently mix together delicate foodstuffs, such as cream and melted chocolate. This particular mixer also has a 15-minute countdown timer that will automatically shut-off at the end of the cycle. This is especially useful if you need to mix something for a certain amount of time.
This mixer measures 15.5 inches long, 10 inches wide and 12.5 inches high, and weighs 21 lbs.
