But at a booth dotted with vanilla macaroons baked by Food His Network star Jackie Joseph, the everyday techniques I’ve seen through crowds of people are the ones I could use in my everyday life. It was also expensive. GE Profile Smart Mixer It’s aimed at its staunch KitchenAid competitor.
where do i start? The GE Profile Smart Mixer is today $999 Crate & Barrel (It will open to other retailers in the coming months). And while there was a model that worked on a ballroom table with pretty spotty Wi-Fi, I never got a chance to bake something myself on a stand mixer. But I busted a lot of buttons, paddled over the butter, lifted the bowl mechanism, and flipped attachments in and out like a balloon whisk.
Here is what left an impression on me. First, GE didn’t just slap the app on his mixer stand. I found the mixer’s mechanical and “smart” design thoughtful and really useful, from the way the attachment clicks in (rather than spinning) for the easiest way, to the built-in scale that reads the weight in the units of your choice. I was. No need to grab a separate food scale and bowl to accurately weigh ingredients before throwing them into the stand mixer. Save time and dirty dishes!
Now let’s talk about the “smart” part. There are several. In addition to the integrated scale, it has a built-in timer. Rotate the top dial to select a speed. When the timer stops, so does the mixer. By the way, the speed goes up to 11.
After launching the app and selecting the auto-sensing mode for a guided recipe (such as meringue), the GE Profile mixer will sense the viscosity and stop when it ‘feels’ that it has reached the firm egg white peak versus the firm egg white peak. increase.
Then there are voice commands for Google Home and Amazon Alexa. At the moment it just tells the stand mixer to turn off, but other commands are in development.
Any other tidbits?
- GE profiles have a reverse mode. spin counterclockwisetough fabric jams or misses a spot, etc.
- The work bowl is easily lifted into place with two paddle levers on the front (I’ve had to wrestle with KitchenAid in the past).
- The paddle, whisk, and dough hook attachments snap together (rather than twist in) and have a quick release motion for clean ejection.
- You can use KitchenAid attachments through the standard “port” on the top.
- Dishwasher safe attachments and work bowl.
I’m really looking forward to trying out the GE Profile Smart Mixer. I’m thinking of making my own vanilla macaroons.
