Cuisinart SM-50BC Stand Mixer Review

Hi Guys, today I’m reviewing the Cuisinart SM-50BC Stand Mixer. LINK to Cuisinart Stand Mixer: amzn.to/2iMogEO
The unit measures 14 inches tall by 7.5 inches wide and 13 inches deep. This mixer has a 500 watt motor and die-cast metal construction. This is the on/off speed control dial with 12 speeds, there’s a blue ring that lights up when the mixer is on. Remove the port cover on the head to connect attachments like a meat grinder or pasta maker. Use this locking screw to put the attachments on. To tilt the head back, hold the head and push down the lever in the back. Push the lever again to put the head down.
A 5.5 quart stainless steel bowl with a handle is included. Put the bowl on the base and turn it clockwise to lock. This is the included whisk which you can use to whip cream and egg whites. The mixing paddle is for cookies and batters. The dough hook is for bread doughs and pasta.
A splash guard with a pour spout is also included. It sits on the bowl and you can move it to any side. You can pour in ingredients through the spout while the machine is running. The instruction manual with recipes has a speed control guide and good tips and hints for baking.
First we’ll whip cream. Tilt the head back, to attach the whisk, push up and turn counterclockwise to lock into the accessory port. Put the bowl on the base. Pour in 1 cup of cold heavy cream. Put the head down. I’ll use the pouring shield. We’ll start on speed 2 and move up to 12. To remove turn clockwise and pull down.
Next we’ll try cookie dough. Attach the paddle. Add 2 sticks softened butter to the bowl and sugar. Cream this at speed 4. Scrape the bowl, turn down to speed 3 and add the eggs one at a time. Add the vanilla and scrape the bowl. Turn down to speed 2 and add the flour mixture. Scrape the bowl. Add chips, use speed 3 and mix.
Finally, we’ll make pizza dough. Pour 1 cup of warm water about 110 degrees Fahrenheit, 1.5 tsps sugar and 2.25 tsps active dry yeast. Stir this and leave it for about 10 minutes. Attach the dough hook. The mixture is foamy, now I’ll add 3 cups bread flour mixed with 1.5 tsps salt and 1 tblsp olive oil. We’ll go up to speed 3 until the dough forms a ball. Now you can the dough cleans the side of the bowl. Knead this for 4 minutes. Our dough looks soft and smooth. Oil it and put the dough in a bowl. Cover and let it rise until doubled, about an hour.
Turn the dial to O to turn the mixer off. To clean, unplug the unit. The whisk is hand wash only. The mixing paddle, dough hook and splash guard are top rack dishwasher safe and the bowl is dishwasher safe. Of course you can hand wash everything. On the bowl, don’t use steel wool or a wire brush. The unit can be wiped down with a damp cloth and dried.
I hope you found this review useful. Subscribe and I’ll see you next time. Thanks for watching :)

Just ordered one in black from Costco ($189.99 cad) for Mother's Day (gift from hubby), and I can't wait to get it! I've been using a hand mixer for years, and it makes me NOT want to bake :( Now, if only I can find flour and yeast in the store, we'll be all set!

is the dough wobbling head normal. I bought one and it does the same thing?
Sashine B.

All tilt-head mixers wobble slightly, including KitchenAid Artisans. It usually happens with heavy dough mixtures (such as bread dough), but not as much with light mixtures. As long as the head is locked down, there should be no worry.
Michael Sturm

They are made to wobble so that you don't snap when you are doing heavy dough or batters. KA's do the same thing if not more.

Bought a KitchenAid stand mixer Artisan series for my Nailed It! celebrity wife Lynnette for her birthday. It was a piece of defective junk right out of the box. Replaced it with this Cuisinart mixer. Smooth and quiet and functioned as it should, right out of the box. Yes, the head has a bit of a wobble but it gets the job done. I can't remember if the head of the KitchenAid mixer wobbled, but it was noisy, grinding, hot and smelly, then the speed control broke and it came to a grinding halt. Nice work KitchenAid 👍

I think most tilt-head mixers will wobble to a certain extent. Glad you like your Cuisinart. I would not buy KA at this stage, either.

i bought this mixer, and my bowl has an upward bump in the centre. is it supposed to be like that? I thought the inside should have a flat bottom. Also, I watched the part of the video on making the pizza dough. You can clearly see the video is choppy and I'm wondering why...did she stop the mixer and have to scrape it down?

This mixer seems very quiet compared to some other models. Is that the actual sound level or did you reduce it for the video? The mixer seems to be very efficient and well-built. Thanks.

All the KitchenAid, except the Pro Line and 6500 series use a super noisy AC motor, this one seems much quieter indeed...gotta get one from Costco to try

Someone else said the mixer head wobbling is a safety issue, for heavier doughs. Good review, thanks, and I see the price for these is half (or less than that) of the KA Artisans. I like the fact they use the spring on the shaft to secure the attachments, unlike how some KAs clank. Thanks for reviewing!

Yes it is. You can also look at the Faberware stand mixer. It's under a hundred dollars and it's almost 600 watts. You can Google the review and decide for yourself.

Iam considering this for my stand mixer. I think it will be well for my needs and your video helped me decide. Are the attachments all metal hard to see??? TY I liked this because of a bowl with a handle.

Can you adjust the head height like on the kitchen aid?

Yes, I've read there is a screw that can be turned, similar to the KitchenAid method for raising or lowering.

Your review of this mixer helped me decide on getting one for myself. It is really quiet,and it was within my desired price range ($150.00), with a 3 year warranty. Thanks for your help. Love all of your candid reviews.

Is there a way to lower the mixer head? The default position doesn't mix the ingredients on the bottom of the mixer bowl.

Hi! I found a one-day offer for this mixer at $89 and I bought it. I was planning on buying a 6 QT kitchen aid but when I saw the Cuisinart for $89, I thought it was a great deal, especially since all I make is bread/pizza dough and pasta dough. Do you think this is a good mixer for a beginner, considering the price, or should I still invest in a 6 QT Kitchen aid? What would you do? Also, have you tested any of the attachments for the Cuisinart? Thank you.

Had the same problem, sent the first one back but the second was stuck also ( both of them were black)...simple fix, push down (hard) on the front end, then push the "flip latch", should pop up easily.

Hi, did you already remove the styrofoam with the whisk attached to it? Push down the lever in the back and tilt the head up. Hope that helps 😀

Hi, The cruisinart bowl is better quality than the kitchenaid bowl?. Cruisinart bowl color doesn’t came off?. Thanks,
bestkitchenreviews Hace un año
The Cuisinart bowl has a better finish and was clean upon arrival. The Kitchenaid bowls require scrubbing and washing to get the greasy residue off. The bowl works fine after washing. The color of the bowl doesn’t come off. Hope that helps 😀

Hi! I know this may sound crazy, but I just received this mixer as a gift. And for the life of me, I can't figure out how to take out the styrofoam in the middle with the whisk attached. I tried clicking the lever in the back to lift the mixer several times, but no luck. What am I doing wrong?

Funny how everyone is have this problem, so did I, (my daughter and I were trying for 15 minutes)I just borrowed my husband for a second to help me and he just press it down with no problems at all and my daughter and I looked at each other and was wondering how did he do that. So we took the foam and stuff out and locked it back down and unlocked it back up with no problem. The whole time I was complaining that I need to go back and return this because I had got a bad one. But now I see that it is literally locked for the first try when you first get it.

Chivon Cowart I got mine for Xmas and just now cracked open the box. I came across the same problem. I ended up cutting away the foam and twisted the bowl towards the back base. After I did that the back release button work. ( It didn't when I took it out of the box). I hope this helps 😃

Hi, yes I remember that part was difficult. Try removing the whisk first if possible. Sorry, I don't remember how I got it off!
