With 500 watts of power, this automatic mixer can whip even the densest ingredients into dough. And with 11 different speed settings, it's extremely versatile and great for kneading, folding, mixing and much more. It even has a half-speed setting so it won't mash or over-beat delicate ingredients like fruits and egg whites. And with a 5.5-quart capacity, it can handle enough dough for up to 11 dozen cookies or 7 pounds of bread per batch. It comes with a wire whip, flat beater and dough hook, and there's a bevy of other attachments available, including a food grinder, pasta maker and veggie spiralizer (all sold separately), that can help turn this baker's buddy into a full-on sous chef.
