compare stand mixers: Cuisinart vs electrolux DLX vs Viking
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?
Viking and Electrolux DLX are the other two stand mixers on my shortlist. Although they have favorable ratings from many users ( I saw some negative ratings for Viking , though), I would like to know how these two compare with the cuisinart.
I need a sturdy mixer that can handle dough for 6 loaves easily; but I also want it to be able to mix frosting and cake batters that need gentler mixing and folding.
I need the mixer mainly for bread dough. I don't mind mixing the cake batter by hand or with a hand mixer since the quantity is smaller, but it would be nice to have a mixer that can do both the jobs very well.
I am a home- baker so I am not looking for a commercial size mixer.
