What customers say about "Key Specs"
BODUM 11381-01US Bistro Electric Stand Mixer
  • This mixer has a lot of power ,even at the highest speed this mixer is rock steady
  • There have been a few people complaining about the mixer starting fast and then slowing down to the proper speed, I haven't seen any issue with this feature. I normally start my mixer on 1 and then up to 2 when my bread dough is ready.
  • Lots of power, I just need to experiment with the different speeds to get it right, but I do recommend.
  • The noisiest mixer i have ever come across. Very slow top speed. Takes forever to mix.
  • Speedup at start and during speed changes is disconcerting.
KitchenAid 5KSM150PSAC 5 Qt Artisan Stand Mixer, Not For USA
  • Powerful motor with plenty of low end torque to push through even the most binding of concoctions.
  • Ample range of mixing speeds. From as low as ---"stir" ---to as high as ---throw, mix, and spray everything out of the mixing bowl
  • It is so powerful, no problem with a double batch of heavy cookie dough or royal icing
  • The included flat beater, coated dough hook, 6-wire whip and 1-piece pouring shield are all well made and should last a long time.
  • The bowl and beaters are still solid, although the spatula beater and dough hook are a little dull.
  • I feel the 1st speed is too fast at times.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
BODUM 11381-01US Bistro Electric Stand Mixer
  • Lighter weight than a KitchenAid, requiring the use of suction cup feet to stay in position.
  • Durable but light weight
KitchenAid 5KSM150PSAC 5 Qt Artisan Stand Mixer, Not For USA
  • This thing is solid and works great. It has good weight to it so it doesn't move around and makes baking a breeze
  • Good weight, but not too heavy.
  • The motor is powerful and the weight of the mixer is good at keeping the machine stable even when mixing stiffer batters and doughs.
  • The only downfall is the weight. It's fairly heavy, so find a good spot for it in the kitchen, because you won't want to move it around much.
  • It's quite heavy and difficult to move, especially if it needs to be stored away.

What customers say about "Control"
BODUM 11381-01US Bistro Electric Stand Mixer
  • The power-position switch (the red switch on the side, no the on/off power switch that is at the rear) seems like it might be a bit delicate, but I think that's just because the dial itself is plastic--I really wish they had made that from stainless.
  • The rotary dial for speed does not move smoothly
  • I didn't like the turn dial off to the side as it made it hard to see what speed I needed
  • Continuous operations limited (recommendation by manufacture) to 5 minutes to avoid overheating. Kitchen aids do not have this issue.
KitchenAid 5KSM150PSAC 5 Qt Artisan Stand Mixer, Not For USA
  • Speed settings are great, you can mix dry ingredients slow and slowly crank up the speed once you know you won't send the powder flying
  • I love the very slowest setting to mix things together before zooming it.
  • There are two nobs on either side of the head, one for setting speed (10 speeds), and one for locking the head in place.
  • The motor and blades are strong enough to handle heavy dough and it has a full range of speed settings to handle mixing anything from a light sauce to heavy bread dough.
  • Even on the slowest setting, the beater will 'jump' and can make a mess if you don't have something thick or heavy in the bowl.

What customers say about "Details"
BODUM 11381-01US Bistro Electric Stand Mixer
  • This mixer is aesthetically pleasing and it really looks nice on a modern kitchen counter. I got the one in black but you can see it comes in several colors.
  • It does a great job with the basic functions - beating, whisking and kneading and is very similar to the KitchenAid in this regard
  • Cleaning the mixer is very easy and it wipes down nicely. It does not have any spots where food or flour seemed to stick.
  • Attachments were easy to install and remove from the mixer.
  • Mixing guard for the bowl -- the mixing guard fits very well and minimizes any mess
  • Limited tools -- dough hook, blades and whisk attachments
  • Smaller mixing bowl than on a Kitchen aid. This limits what you really do with the mixer.
KitchenAid 5KSM150PSAC 5 Qt Artisan Stand Mixer, Not For USA
  • The lock in design for the mixing bowl. Very easy to insert and remove and it holds the bowl in place solid.
  • Dough hook and flat beater attachments are covered in a easy-clean white nylon coating and are dishwasher safe
  • Kneads dough very well for my liking, my arms are so happy I don't have to knead
  • Comes with 3 different mixing tools, one works like a whisk, one is more of a dough hook, and the 3rd works best with thicker batters
  • The bowl is a good size and has never been too small for the recipes I've made
  • I wish they would make a 2nd shield just for protecting from spatter, the one it comes with has holes for adding dough, and doesn't fit all the way around, so I still get spatter sometimes which is a pain to clean
