Cuisinart® 7-Quart
 
Has anyone used one of these mixers? It looks like it has plenty of power and the bowl is 1 quart larger than the KA 600

Haven't used one, but Fine Cooking magazine had a generally favorable review. It's online here: Newest Stand Mixer - Fine Cooking Article

The 7 qt. model has a 1000 watt motor! To put it in a different perspective, that's a little over 1.3 horsepower. :eek:

I broke down and bought the Kitchenaid. I wanted the power that the Cuisinart had, but it doesn't offer near the versatility of the KA. I've read on this forum where KA is a good product - hopefully I made a good decision:confused:

We have recently purchased the KA and have used it quite a few times already...I would not recommend anything other than the KA...quite quiet also...

So far, so good for my refurbished KA Pro 600. I think KA may have gotten the kinks out.

Hey Les,
Are you going to be using some of the attachments that are available for the KA?

James,

I believe I will. Hamburger can be a pretty scary product to buy. I think I would take the time and run some tri tip through the attachment. There are so many options, but I got sold on that one alone. My brother in law was a butcher - war stories....:eek:
