Hi. I’m Mary Rogers, director of marketing communications from Cuisinart. Today we’re going to talk about stand mixers. This is Cuisinart’s 7-quart 1,000 watt powered stand mixer. It has fabulous features that other stand mixers don’t have.
First and foremost, like I mentioned, it’s 7-quarts, it has a beautiful stainless steel bowl that mounts onto the stand mixer by just twisting and turning. It has a beautiful splash guard with a pour spout. You’ll notice that our splash guard totally seals the bowl so that when you have anything in here like flour or liquid that you’re mixing it won’t splash out. Plus you can add ingredients through the pour spout.
It has 12 variable speeds. You just use this dial to move the speeds. And when I say variable, you can have it on speed one and then move it very easily to another speed and you don’t have to stop the machine in between.
It also has a 15 minute countdown timer that you program. So if you’re making something that say you need to mix for say four minutes you basically program it, it mixes for you. You can go attend to something else. The machine will stop and beep to let you know it’s done.
We also have a really great fold feature. And that is really important when you’re doing some types of baking that you want to really gently mix the food. It mixes it very slowly at the lowest speed. It goes around about 1 ½ times and then it stops. You can also use it kind of as a pulse action if you wish.
The other thing that’s really great about this mixer is it has many power ports. It has two in the top and one in the front. The one in the front you’re able to mount a meat grinder or a pasta attachment so you get lots of great extras with this.
And those attachments you can buy separately. It also has a mid-speed outlet which is used for our citrus juicer attachment. And it has a high speed outlet which is used for our blender and proprietary food processor attachment.
So you just close the lid and what we’re going to do today is we’re going to use the whisk attachment to make basically a mouse. The other thing that our stand mixer comes with is a dough attachment to make bread dough, or even bagels.
You can use the flat paddle for any kind of mixing. So say you’re going to make a meatloaf or you’re going to do something like cookies, if you use your stand mixer to make cookies, that’s great for that. All of our removable parts go right into the dishwasher and also our attachments that you use with the stand mixer, these here specifically, are specially coated so that it’s really easy to get sticky foods off of it like cookie dough. The other thing it comes with is our spatula which is contoured to the shape of the bowl.
We also have a great DVD right here which comes with your stand mixer. We recommend that you watch it. It has great tips and techniques on there. It also has lots of recipes for you to make at home. It also comes with a great IB.
And now I’m going to show you how to make a fabulous desert in just seconds. First I’m going to turn on my stand mixer. I’m going to put it on a medium speed, say four, just to get started. I’m going to pour the heavy cream right through the pour spout and what we’re going to do is we’re going to let that mix for about two minutes.
But what I’m going to do is I’m going to actually engage the countdown timer. So you hold your finger down till it starts to blink and then you just tap it for two minutes. And then what will happen is it will actually stop blinking, that lets you know that’ it’s engaged and then you turn on the stand mixer and then we can go do something else.
So let’s check our whip cream. Just lift the lid and here’s our whisk attachment which I’ll show you. I’m going to just take this off so you can see how gorgeous that whipped cream looks. Now what I’m going to do is show you how to use the fold feature. I’m going to add the ganache to this mixture which is basically melted chocolate with a little bit of cream in it. I’m going to add that and then what we’re going to do is use the fold feature and you’re going to see how great that works. Put down the head of the mixer and then we’re going to actually do this on, I want to say maybe a medium speed.
Another thing that you’ll notice is this just goes around once, like I said 1 ½ times but the fold feature works on the lowest speed so it doesn’t matter what speed you put it on. That’s something I should mention. So we’re just going to continue using the fold feature so that our mouse is delicately mixed.
So we’re just going to mix that using the fold feature until it’s totally incorporated, take a few tries, and I thing we have it. Let’s lift our lid and take a look at our mouse. Look how gorgeous that is. Nice milky chocolaty color. And all you have to do is, believe it or not, put it in a beautiful container like this and put maybe some strawberries on top or even some mint and you’ll have an absolutely fabulous elegant desert in no time. And there you have it, chocolate mousse.
