A Powerful Stand Mixer
The Cuisinart SM-55BC has a brushed chrome finish that is easy on the eye. The 800 watt motor is housed by a very strong die cast metal framework. There are up to 12 speeds to choose from, and a 5.5 quart stainless steel bowl. The functionality of the mixing is sophisticated enough to allow for a slow start. The mixing heads that come with this Cuisinart are standard for most stand mixers: a dough hook, flat mixing paddle and whisk.
The Cuisinart 12-Speed Stand Mixer has an array of helpful features which includes tilt-back head security locks. This allows the mixer to be fixed in a raised position without you worrying that it will drop back down.

The slow start function stops the mixture from splashing out of the bowl and around the machinery. Overall, it’s a design that every mixing session could benefit from as it provides functionality, and ease of use.
The 12 different mixing speeds allow a user to pick a speed that is applicable to the job at hand. Let’s say that at a certain speed setting too much splashing occurs, then you can simply lower the setting and see how that works for you. The fold function means you can operate the machine at a very slow pace when needed.
Have you ever had that annoying mixture where a constant rotation of the bowl is required? Well with the Cuisinart SM-55BC that will be a thing of the past because of its bowl rotation feature. The rotation of the bowl ensures that the mixture is mixed thoroughly, and provides a hands-off approach.
