DeLonghi 5-Quart Stand Mixer
I'll start by saying that I make a Carrot Cake that has more friends than I do on Facebook. Seriously, I do make a killer carrot cake and I would not be able to put a smile on the faces of my friends, family, and co-workers if I didn't own a Delonghi DSM-5 5 quart stand mixer. This is actually my second stand mixer. My first was a Viking stand 5 quart and it was literally possessed by the Devil. It would randomly jump to maximum speed spraying my and my kitchen with whatever was in the mixing bowl. My Delonghi DSM-5 not only looks great, but works perfectly. The best part is the ingredient chute that comes with the mixer. The chute makes it sooo easy to get ingredients into the mixing bowl without having to stop the mixer and raise the beater out of the bowl. I love this mixer!! Here are some of the highlights of the DSM-5: * BRUSHED DIE-CAST ALUMINUM BODY AND COMPONENTS for superior quality and durability. * LARGE 5-QUART STAINLESS STEEL BOWL with handles. * HEAVY-DUTY 750 WATT MOTOR WITH 10-YEAR WARRANTY The most powerful 5-quart stand mixer! * UNIQUE MIXING ACTION The planetary motion of the beater and the beater socket, results in thorough and perfect mixing results every time. * 6-SPEED CONTROL WITH PULSE Dial control is easy-to-use and guarantees the perfect speed for all mixing tasks. * OVERLOAD PROTECTION DEVICE The unit will automatically terminate operation if the capacity exceeds the suggested amount. * THREE LARGE MIXING TOOLS for specific baking tasks: Non-Stick Dough Hook is specially designed to make mixing and kneading quick and effortless. Stainless Steel Whisk produces a light, fluffy texture. Perfect for mousses, souffles and meringues. Non-Stick Flat Beater increases efficiency and reduces beating time. It’s ideal for mixing cake and cookie batter. * FOUR CONCEALED POWER OUTLETS for over 12 optional attachments. * SPLASH GUARD allows you to easily add ingredients. * TILTING HEAD LIFT for quick and easy tool change and bowl removal. OPTIONAL ATTACHMENTS AND ACCESSORIES: o High-Speed Slicer / Shredder o Potato Peeler o Grain Mill o Continuous Juice Extractor o Citrus Juicer o 1.2-Liter (40-Ounce) Glass Blender o Fruit and Vegetable Strainer o Professional-Quality Food Grinder o Pasta Maker o Food Processor

I've used kitchen timers much more as a parent than I ever did before- time outs, whirlwind clean ups, play breaks- my daughter thinks everything is more fun when it's a race. This head timer adds an extra touch of whimsy and fun....
