My sister has a few tumblrs, one of which is juniesbaking.tumblr.com , where she highlights her kitchen exploits.
About a week ago, our old trusty hand mixer burnt out. We looked all over the Internet for opinions, and found the Cook’s Country / America’s Test Kitchen review — http://www.cookscountry.com/equipment-reviews/Hand-Held-Mixers-Review-Cook-s-Country/21160/
We wholeheartedly recommend the Cuisinart Power Advantage 7-Speed. The slowest settings allow it to mix dry ingredients without sending them everywhere, it has the power to mix anything she’s thrown at it, it has a whisk attachment, as well as dough hooks. The beaters have no center post, making cleanup even easier.
So far, she’s made cheesecake topped brownies, blonde brownie bars, and now, this beautiful Italian bread. It’ll be fun to go back to older recipes which were a pain to mix with the old mixer to see how they come out with the new one.
Thank you Tom for the post.
