GE Unveiled the Smartest Stand Mixer Ever at CES. Here's Why We Think So

It might even be worth the eye-popping price.

GE Profile Stand Mixer
A stand mixer with built-in scale suddenly seems like a no-brainer. 

When you're working through a baking project, getting the measurements right for both wet and dry ingredients is critical. Add too much flour or not enough water and you'll likely end up with cookies or bread that would make British Bake Off's Paul Hollywood stare blankly into space -- or worse. With that in mind, GE Profile (an independent wing of GE) has engineered a smart mixer with a built-in scale, and it has us wondering: What took so long?

In hopes to pull a little market share from KitchenAid -- a brand that dominates the stand mixer category -- GE Profile touted some intriguing updates to its high-powered stand mixer at CES 2023, dubbing it the "smartest stand mixer in the world." On Tuesday, GE Profile announced that the mixer was named a CES Innovations Awards Honoree in the Home Appliance category.

So what's smart about it? The GE Profile's 7-quart mixing bowl now doubles as a scale to perfectly measure wet and dry ingredients such as flour, sugar, eggs, milk, water and salt. The smart scale accounts for ingredients already in the bowl, after which you can simply zero out and move on to the next ingredient without having to do any quick math. As of now, no KitchenAid stand mixer features a built-in scale, although a separate smart scale and sifter attachment can be had for around $130.

The stand mixer also has a feature called Auto Sense, which works with select recipes to monitor changes in texture and viscosity through motor torque feedback to optimize speeds and turn off the motor in accordance. Similar technology has been popular in blenders for years, but now brings stand mixing near to a set-it-and-forget-it experience.

GE's new smart mixer features dozens of guided recipes aimed at making you a more confident baker.


Speaking of select recipes, the GE Profile app is loaded with dozens of guided stand mixer-based recipes to help you try new bakes with confidence. 

And what smart appliance would be complete without hands-free voice control? The GE Profile mixer is fully compatible with Alexa and Google Assistant so you can stop the blade or change speeds even when your hands are busy with another project or too sticky to touch the control panel. 

The smart mixer retails for $1,000 and is currently available exclusively at Crate & Barrel
