Cuisinart 7 Quart, 1000 Watt, Silver Mixer for Sale -- I'll entertain a best offer!

October 26, 2009 - 1:54pm -- davidinportland

Hi All, 

I'm moving to NYC to a small (but great) loft. My kitchen is going to be much smaller and I need to sell certain things that I don't have room for. First to go, sadly, is my 7 quart Cuisinart, which I love. But, I simply won't have room for it and am going to be able to keep only my smaller KitchenAid. I bought it 6 or so months ago, have posted here about how great I think it is, and it is in perfect condition.

I use all my equipment very gently and carefully. The mixer will include:

1. Mixer body

2. Whisk

3. Paddle

Kenwood Chef -vs- Vintage K45

August 21, 2009 - 6:45am -- alabubba

My old Mixmaster finally bit the bucket. It has made a lot of bread and cookies over the years but it was never what I would consider "Heavy Duty"

So I am looking on ebay for something to replace it. There are several vintage kitchen aid mixers listed. I have read about the problems with the newer kitchen aid mixers not being what the old Hobart built ones were so I am limiting my search to "Hobart Kitchen Aid" 

Then I came across a listing for the Kenwood Chef A702 w/450watt motor. I did some research and it looks like a solid built machine.

compare stand mixers: Cuisinart vs electrolux DLX vs Viking

November 25, 2008 - 5:51pm -- RigoJancsi


I am looking for a good quality stand mixer and I would appeciate if you could share your experience about the Cuisinart 7 quart mixer. Even though cuisinart is better known for its excellent food processors, this machine looks very impressive - a powerful 1000 watt motor with a 5 year warranty, 3 year product warranty and a timer. But surprisingly, there aren't many posts about it. Would someone please share experience regarding this mixer?

New Stand Mixer Purchase Question

February 9, 2008 - 5:29pm -- srfrench

Hi!  I'm a relative newbie in the breadmaking arena and am ready to purchase a new stand mixer as I have managed to destroy two other mixers that I was led to believe were top of the line models.  I was considering a Viking 7-quart stand mixer (1000 watt motor with metal gear transmission).  I would appreciate any positive or negative feedback on this choice option.  Thanks in advance as I look forward to hearing from more experienced bakers!

I've ordered a new mixer.

 I've reached the limit of what I can reasonably expect from my Kitchen Aid Accolade 400. It has served me well, and I've certainly learned a lot using it to mix and knead breads. But I want to mix larger batches of dough. I want to try formulas that demand longer kneading times, higher kneading speeds or both. And I don't need to prove that the Kitchen Aid isn't up to a job by destroying it.

 Over lunch (Salami sandwich on my own sour rye, of course), I had a good talk with Deanne at Pleasant Hill Grain.  Several on this site have been very pleased with their Electrolux DLX mixers from that vendor. When I visited their web site, I found they also sell the Bosch"Universal Plus" mixer. The Bosch and the DLX are more similar than different in capabilities, with each having a slight edge in one feature or another.

 Without going through a blow-by-blow description of my decision making, I'll just say I have ordered the Bosch Universal Plus mixer. Honestly, the biggest draw of the DLX was that I know there are bakers here who know that machine and whom I could count on for tips and to answer questions as I get to know it.

 Well, I guess we will have an opportunity to compare notes. That's something.

 I expect to get the Bosch mixer next week. I couldn't possibly be lucky enough to get it before the weekend!
