Cuisinart Mixer vs Kitchenaid? anyone...

jennisad Jul 24, 2007 07:22 AM

I recently saw that Cuisinart is now making blenders...http://cuisinart.com/
and a pretty fancy one it seems. Antone know anything about this in comparison to the KitchenAid's? Will llikely purchase one in the near future. I like some of the features the Cuisin has, but the name and rep of KA might be worth the buy alone. But at Linen's and Things it was 50.00 cheaper than the KA Pro

Anyone know about this model?

    I'd stick with a good old Waring Pro. There is a reason they have been around for decades!

        Well I have had the same Waring for over 25 years. I had a HB once it did not last long at all.

        If you are curious about the new Cuisinart stand mixer, visit cooking.com and check out their cooking equipment forum. One of the members was given the new stand mixer to "road test" and did a very thorough job of testing and reviewing it.

          Just checking, do you mean a stand mixer or a blender? Both are very different appliances.

              Big difference. Kitchen Aid all the way for me.

            check out Consumer Digest for their article on comparing KA with Cuisinart mixer ( btw, Waring and cuisinart are the same company, pretty much)

              My husband bought the Cuisinart stand mixer for my birthday after much research on my part. I'm very satisifed w/ my Cuisinart. Features I especially like are: tiltback head, timer, fold button, easy clean up, relatively quiet. Much more power in the machine than the KA pro and looks to be made very well. Wish an extra bowl was available for purchase, smaller size for smaller amounts of batter. My mixer was purchased at LNT with their 20% off coupon, savings of $70!! Also looking for a cover for it, not sure if the KA cover will fit. No regrets about buying the Cuisinart!!

                Well, I researched and researched the blenders and bought the Cuisinart chrome even though I have a Kitchenaid stand mixer that I love. Problem, they are both a mess to pour as the bowl is so round that pancake batter, milkshakes ect,come tumbling out! You can have mine if you want, I'm getting a Waring be-hive!

                  The waring behive is the pro. Just has two speeds but is enough.Just check the spouts for pourability. My cusianart does have a food processor attachment which is nice, no extra equiptment on the counter. Good Luck!
