Patented Twin Motor System
One motor drives the beaters while a second independent motor drives the bowl. This allows the power to be put where it is needed, and the result is a powerful bowl drive that forces the mixture through the beaters and allows for a more efficient 3-way mixing action.
Spring loaded scraper beaters
Heavy-duty "V-groove" spring loaded beaters with patented soft tips ensure excellent mixing results on very small volumes by automatically scraping the bowl, including the difficult to reach center section.

Compare the Handy Stand Mixer™
October 31, 2012Almost Great
"Caveat: I have not used any other stand mixer, this is first purchase, sight unseen, of such a product (purchased based on Breville's reputation for superb products).
Hand Mixer component: very fluid, 12-step hand mixer. Amazingly quiet and superb torque! Has a nice timer that starts ever time you restarted. Super comfortable on/off switch and +/- speed buttons. Easy to clean underside. It comes with Wisk and dough mixers. Attaches to stand, gets its power from a cord (with usual Breville easy-pull-out "O" type plug), and feeds power to the stand portion. Absolutely no issues with mixer portion.
Stand component. This stand mixer rotates the bowl. Once you figure out how to attach and detach the bowl, very simple to use. Bowl itself is somewhat wimpy, and plastic attachment at bottom to mate to stand has no surface grip, i.e. it slides around your countertop. Metal of bowl is not particularly robust. Motor: a two position setting motor that draws its power from attached mixer. Motor is very geared-down to provide oodles of torque. The cost is LOUD NOISE. It's really loud, a huge, disappointing contrast to the velvety smooth mixer. What gives?
So from a functional standpoint, superb. Aesthetics? Superb. Noise of the stand? Very disappointing. Enough to send back? Don't know yet. Most likely not, as it does the job more than adequately (mixed vegan cake frosting trivially, mixed bread dough ("My Bread" style, 400g flour, 300g water) without even thinking about it on the slowest mixer setting).
Worth $150? I have no idea, read first paragraph.
