Rather than spending energy or time fiddling with dozens of kitchen appliances-or worrying about buying, operating and cleaning an entire countertop of gadgets, many people are choosing kitchen equipment that can accomplish a variety of tasks.
Need to mix cookie dough? Beat dozens of eggs for omelettes? Whisk together a souffle? Make smoothies for on-the-go breakfasts, or blend margaritas for a party?
"Every kitchen needs a centerpiece," says Meg Tipton, DeLonghi Marketing Manager, "a high-quality appliance that enhances both food preparation and kitchen decor."
The mixer earned the Good Housekeeping Seal for its ability to mix ingredients quickly and efficiently, handle heavy loads without difficulty and give food like whipped cream smooth texture and excellent volume.
