CUSIMAX CMKM-150 5-Quart 400W Stand Mixer Review


CUSIMAX CMKM-150 is a stand mixer with 5-quart mixing bowl and 400 watt motor.


Performance

CUSIMAX CMKM-150 works reasonably well for a budget priced stand mixer but it’s not as good as high-end models. It gets the job done just fine most of the time, only thing you can criticize is that the motor can struggle with stiffer doughs (i.e. bread dough) but other than that it performs well.

Sure, sometimes you might have to scrape sides of the bowl more often than you would with a KitchenAid but you can’t expect it to perform like a KitchenAid when it doesn’t cost like one.

Another thing you might want to criticize is that manual recommends not to run the stand mixer for longer than 7 minutes. Some doughs require to be mixed for longer than that so having to stop midway through to let the motor cool down isn’t very convenient. Of course you have the option to ignore the recommendation however that might reduce the lifetime of the motor or perhaps even burn it on the spot if you mix some hard doughs.

Overall CUSIMAX CMKM-150 works well enough for light-to-medium duty jobs but might struggle a bit with heavy duty jobs.


Attachments

CUSIMAX CMKM-150 comes with whisk, dough hook and mixing beater. They are dishwasher safe however washing them in a dishwasher might cause the coating to wear off.


Quality

Evaluating the quality of CUSIMAX CMKM-150 is a bit subjective as counter-intuitive it might sound to you. If you have never owned a stand mixer before you will probably think it’s just fine. If you have owned a KitchenAid stand mixer (or had experience with one) the CUSIMAX will feel extremely cheap to you as will its attachments.

The biggest difference between the CUSIMAX and KitchenAid are the materials they are made of. KitchenAid is made of metal whereas CUSIMAX is made of ABS plastic so it doesn’t feel nowhere near as sturdy. The attachments on the KitchenAid are a lot sturdier too.

There’s one upside of CUSIMAX CMKM-150 being made mostly of plastic though – it’s much lighter than equally large KitchenAid stand mixer making the former a lot easier to hold and carry.


Features

Just like the large majority of modern stand mixers CUSIMAX CMKM-150 has tilt-head design. It’s also equipped with very powerful suction cups that really keep the stand mixer stationary however it also makes it a bit hard to remove from countertop.


Verdict

If you can’t afford a KitchenAid stand mixer then CUSIMAX CMKM-150 can be a reasonable alternative but don’t expect it to be as good.
