Breville Handy Stand Mixer, BEM600XL : With a fully detachable 12-speed hand mixer and patented twin motors that powerfully drive the beaters and bowl separately, the Breville Handy Stand Mixer is one of the most clever and convenient appliances you'll own. One independent motor spins the bowl while the other controls the beaters/dough hooks to confidently mix even dense, stiff pizza dough or banana bread. The spring loaded, patented soft-tipped beaters create deeper hand mixing for increased volume and a consistent, thorough mix. The intelligent heavy-duty 350-watt motor plus 12 variable speeds and turbo boost equip you for any kitchen prep task. A tilt back and lock down mixer head allows you extra room to add ingredients to the flared-top 3 1/2-qt. mixing bowl. Innovative digital count-up timer takes the guesswork out of when your batters, doughs and meringues are ready. Internal sensors detect heavier batters and automatically adjust power to maintain selected speed and a smart motor protection system prevents motor burnout if mixer is overloaded. Sleek digital kitchen mixer is a reliable workhorse from light mixing of dressings to high-speed whipping of eggs. With smooth fingertip touchpad control, the Breville handy stand mixer delivers gourmet consistency for fluffy whipped cream to thick biscuit dough. The backlit LED screen allows for easy viewing of timer and mixing speeds. Extra long 5-foot cord gives you all the mobility and maneuverability you need.

While we would like a full size mixer storage room and price do not warrant one. I was a bit concerned with power but after using it to blend a thick batter my fears were quelled. The rotating bowl feature works great and the choice of mixer speeds makes it very versatile. The machine appears well built and designed. With simple added features such as a large finger loop to pull the plug out with (why don't all kitchen appliances have this?). The fact that we have the convenience of a stand mixer and a hand mixer is another bonus. The only thing I can think of to make it better would be a paddle blade option(hint . . . hint).
This is great little mixer for my family of two. My 15 year old daughter loves it as she can do her own baking without having to ask me. It's very convenient to use and clean. It's not bulky and very easy to store.

Breville knocks it out of the park with this stand/hand mixer. I had a previous brand, and Breville smashes all expectations. Very well made, you can tell right out of the box. A separate motor for the turntable, get outta here, thats unimaginable. quality beaters, quality bowl. Have not tried as a hand mixer, it will work great, but it will be a tad heavier than other hand mixers you use. But rock solid performance. It may keep that big bad boy with the cover on it (everyone knows what that is!), cause the Breville is that efficient. I am a single household, but make baking goods for church/and or work, so know I am talking about using it as its intended, not the big, hunking Breville or other brand, but top quality for a combo hand/stand mixer. I love this so much, am thinking of buying as gifts for friends that are small households of 3-4. Would love Breville to make a cover for it, but one of the ones on CooksCat should work.

This is a great mixer. I use it almost daily. It doesn't vibrate when I use it as a hand mixer, which makes it so much more comfortable to use. I haven't used it as a stand mixer yet, but I am looking forward to it. Great quality
