Breville USA BEM600XL Handy Stand Mixer
If you're partial to double beater mixers, and you are looking for something comparable to the top rated model, than the Breville USA BEM600XL Handy Stand Mixer is worth a look. This double beater Breville actually has two motors with one to drive the beaters and one to drive the bowl table platform. Technically, a platform motor would be most helpful for heavier duty tasks (like dough kneading) because it would always keep the bowl turning for maximum dough contact with the 380 watt powered kneading hooks. There are only low and high settings for mixing speeds and there's no power take off feature available so the only accessories you can get are different bowls and beaters. However, is dough kneading is going to be your primary use for this appliance, the Breville Handy Stand Mixer is up to the task. Although simple and straightforward, it's power and effectiveness get the job done.
