Cuisinart SM-50 feels just as powerful as many more expensive stand mixers. It does indeed do a great job of mixing and whipping. Even very thick and hard doughs is not an issue. When doing some heavy duty mixing the motor can become a bit hot but Cuisinart SM-50 doesn’t show any signs of struggling.
During mixing Cuisinart SM-50 stays put an is relatively quiet for a stand mixer. If you can complain about one thing it’s that attachments don’t cover whole area of bowl which can slightly reduce mixing efficiency.
