It's the little details that count in the kitchen. For example, a meal cooked without any herbs and spices would be bland and boring. Same thing can be said about kitchen appliances, except that it is not taste buds that are at risk, but rather convenience and versatility. And as every home cook knows, convenience means saving time, and that can be no small detail.
The Breville Stand Mixer combines function with performance and convenience. Little details stand out on this machine, from a 10-minute LCD timer that can count up or down, to a retractable power cord that makes it easy to maneuver the mixer. Additionally, there is a nice graphic 'cheat sheet' for paddle selection, along with multiple speed options with easy-to-follow descriptions ranging from folding and kneading to whipping and aerating. An included pouring shield solves a common nuisance with stand mixers and allows for ingredients to be easily poured in the work bowl while the mixer is operating.
With a durable die-cast stainless-steel housing, along with a brushed stainless-steel finish, the 550-watt stand mixer forms a solid workhorse of the kitchen. Included along with the 5-quart mixing bowl are four attachments (dough hook, wire whip, flat beater, and scraper beater), providing the essential elements necessary to outfit your kitchen--and the details to do it right.
