With a singular focus on mixing essentials, the Breville Stand Mixer draws a straight line from your imagination to your taste buds. It's built for baking. Scraper Beater's flexible edge scrapes the sides & bottom of the Stainless Steel bowl clean. Pouring Shield minimizes spattering when mixing and adding ingredients. The flat beater is for general mixing of heavy batters and pie pastry, while the Dough hook kneads bread, pizza, and pasta dough. The wire whip incorporates air for whipped cream, egg whites, and icing. The smooth sounding 550 watt motor features load sensing motor protection sensors that detect heavy mixtures and maintain precision speed.
