Breville BEM800XL Stand Mixer Review: One of the most important appliances one must have on their home is kitchen tools. Having the best kitchen tools at your disposal would mean that you are going to be able to prepare food quickly, effectively, and efficiently. One of the most used kitchen apparatus is the mixer. Having a good mixer would mean more consistently made food and lesser time to prepare them. But how would you select which mixer is right for your home or your business? Today, we are going to profile the Breville BEM800XL 5 Quart Die-cast stand up mixer.
At first glance, it looks very heavy duty and ready to go rough and tumble with the toughest kitchen assignments. A stainless steel body gives an aura of elegance as well as toughness. The huge dimensions (it weighs 9 pounds) seem to be ready to gobble up just about anything thrown at it. But the good thing about it is that just about every indication points out that this indeed performs as tough as it looks. The heart of this Breville mixer is in its motor. With maximum output rated at 550 watts. It can take on even the most demanding of mixing assignments using a planetary mixing motion. Using the electronic controls, you can adjust its mixing power among 12 different speeds, perfect when you are trying to process different types of foods. But in addition to this, it has one of the more innovative features on the market today. Motor protection sensors detect what type of mixture you are doing and adjust the motor’s speed accordingly, ensuring perfect speed just about every single time. Plus, it has a timer that can be set up to 10 minutes. Additional equipment for the Breville BEM800XL 5 Quart Diecast Stand Up Mixer includes a 5-quart bowl where you can dunk in your food for processing, a wire whisk that is perfect for beating or aerating mixtures, a dough hook that is specially designed for kneading thru dough and a flat mixing paddle for use in everything else in between.
There are a lot of rave reviews for this mixer by Breville. The first thing that people appreciated about this product is how it is able to handle multiple types of food well. Using the paddle, it can mash thru just about anything. With the wire whisk, you can whip up mixtures into the perfect consistency. And with the dough hook, you can actually knead thru dough efficiently even without using your hands. It also got additional points for its ergonomics. It performs quietly with minimal vibration even when used at high speeds, a scraper beater that can help you clean out the bowl’s edges, handles that actually work, and a release button that gives better access to the bowl. Some of its weaknesses are inherent to its structure. Some say that it is hard to go through the splash guard and the lift-assist handle, and some are looking for some extra features like lights and stuff. But then again, it’s hard to have it all these days.
So in closing, there is so much to like about the Breville BEM800XL. It is an industrial-grade mixer that can take on just about every assignment that you wish.
