I've owned it for 3 yrs and I'm still in love! I literally use it everyday! I have gone through so many mixers I cant even count them all. I finally found one that can handle all my abuse. I love the timer, its my favorite feature. Even if the mixer was sub-pare, this feature is so useful I couldn't ever live without it again. The motor and the weight of the machine can handle really large, dense, bread dough batches without dancing across the counter, or grinding the motor out. The draw backs: 1. the size. It's bigger than most mixers but I wish I had gone with the bigger unit. 2. The kitchen aid has more variety and availability of attachments, however Cuisinart makes all the attachments I actually use. I have burned through too many Kitchaids to consider it just for novelty attachments but, I would like them. January 13, 2013
Great Mixer I purchased my stand mixer 4/2012. Needed replacement due to a leaky gear seal. Returned it to BBB on Saturday, new one delivered today. Super fast for an item not in the store. I just love this mixer, and could hardly wait for the new one to arrive. Have most of the attachments, and use it frequently. Lots of power to handle whatever I need. Kudos to BBB and Cuisinart .

BEST ever I have owned this for one year and LOVE it! all attachments work GREAT! Could not do the holidays without it again! Does what it says and works like a charm. December 14, 2012
FABULOUS!!! I love, love, LOVE this mixer! I had a KitchenAid for 8 years until the gears finally gave out and i could justify buying a new mixer - I had been looking at the Cuisinart for a few years and just waiting for the other one to die! It is quieter, it doesn't walk across the counter when i'm kneading bread, and the lower speeds work without the 'poof' of flour when i'm adding in dry ingredients! It cleans up easily and the pouring shield actually works! I haven't used any attachments yet, but I love the fact that I can use it as a blender too (just waiting for the blender to come!). Absolutely a great product at a great price! January 6, 2012
