Two things are immediately apparent at first glance of the BODUM 11381-294US Bistro electric stand mixer, the first is that its one of the best looking mixers we’ve profiled here and the second is that theres a whole lot of gusto under the hood to handle even the toughest ingredients. The Bistro brings 700 watts of power to the table (or the counter-top) and 7 speeds for mixing and blending those sticky batters and doughs with confidence.
The unit comes with additional attachments and special features to round out this compact mixer that measures only 17 x 10.8 x 15.8 inches, making it the perfect size to fit in any home. The price tag comes in at around $100 but if youre in the market for a mixer that features forward-thinking aesthetics and functionality, look no further than the BODUM Bistro.
The Bistro is chock full of terrific features, all of which have been designed to make cooking and baking a thoroughly effortless experience. We all sure do love enjoying those tasty baked goods and treats, but sometimes getting the ingredients together and prepping them to go into the oven can be a real drag.
But not with the BODUM Bistro, this small unit can turn prep time into fun time and it looks great doing it. The Bistro is available in four colors, red, green, black, and white, so youre bound to find the right fit for your home décor. There are 7 speeds on the Bistro, driven by a robust 700 watt motor, which offers double the power of your typical, everyday stand mixer.
It comes with a 4.7 Liter stainless steel mixing bowl that features a rubber-covered handle for easy maneuverability and the three essential attachments that every good mixer needs in order to accomplish its goals – a beater, a whisk and a non-stick dough hook, which is important because sticky dough will easily stick to your dough hook and that non-stick surface is the key to getting a proper knead. Additional attachments are available and sold separately.
Even More Features!
But wait, theres more! The Bistro comes with a removable splash-guard and a funnel attachment to easily and safely pour additional ingredients into the mixer while its operating. These also cut down on the potential mess that can be made when introducing new elements into the mix, with these attachments the likelihood of spatter or splashback is greatly reduced which means you spend last time cleaning up after youre done and more time enjoying the fruits of your labor.
The Bistro also features a lift-assist mixer head which locks into place so you wont need to worry about it falling over while youre adding those necessary additional elements. Not only could that cause a mess, it could cause injury as well. Nobody wants that.
The Bistro is the ideal mixer for the culinary artisan who wants a little extra pizzazz in their kitchen appliance. It not only looks great but works even better, bringing unbridled power and rotating, orbital movement for an even mix time and again. Some consumers may be put off by its smaller size but the compact dimensions make it very easy to store away just about anywhere and everything is dishwasher safe so clean up is a cinch.
