Does anyone have a Cusinart mixer? A friend of mine is very happy with hers. She did some research and chose it over the KitchenAid mixer.

I know certain Artisan's don't have that feature.

I love my simple KA. I no longer have kids at home to cook or bake for. So come holiday time, it does what I want it to. I have my pasta maker, meat grinder, new glass bowl and my paddle bowl scrapper. And for only $60 at an auction, brand new, still in the box, I can't ask for anything more. It all depends on what you are going to be asking it to do.

More and more I am hearing good things about Cuisinart. Their pans, mixers, food processors, etc. I get the impression that given a few more years and they are going to surpass a lot of the more expensive items in satisfaction and durability. It is becoming the Sunbeam of their day.

Does Cuisinart make vacuum cleaners yet? Wouldn't be surprised.

The two mixers Cuisinart offers are both tilt back heads, which would be a no go for me.

That was one of my first criteria in picking my mixer - no tilt back! My MIL's is a tilt and she has had nothing but problems with it over the years. Can't remember the brand, not Cuisinart though.

I think the biggest one that comes to mind is that three times in the time I have been part of the family (10 years), She has tilted it up and it has fallen down and broken the glass bowl. Each time the company has replaced the bowl no questions asked, but NOT done anything to fix the actual problem.
