The Jenn-Air Atrezzi stand mixer is uniquely shaped and offers a glass mixing bowl that is both artistic and functional. It is sure to become a showpiece in any kitchen. But how does this decorative kitchen mixer stand up to the competition? Let's take a look.
This stand mixer offers 400 watts of power, which is enough to knead dough and still versatile enough to whip up egg whites. This food mixer comes with 10 different speed settings, allowing you to start on a gentle cycle and move up to a more powerful cycle for the bread or cookie dough that is on the heavier side. This dough mixer also comes with metal gears, direct drive transmission and an auto-off feature, all of which should increase its longevity.
One of the items that caught our attention on this dough mixer is its unique design. The body of this food mixer is slimmer and a bit taller than others are and does not have many crevices. Because of this design, we found that there are not many places for ingredients to get stuck. Because the head of the mixer is also a more narrow design there is less space for food to splatter. However, we were disappointed to find that this stand mixer does not come with any type of splashguard for times when ingredients will fly out of the mixing bowl.
We were pleased to find that this stand mixer does offer the tilt-head feature, which offers better access to the beater and allows you to scrape the bowl. However, this dough mixer also comes with planetary mixing action, so you shouldn't have to worry about scraping the bowl too often. The decorative bowl is made out of tempered glass and adds a touch of elegance to any countertop. If you prefer a solid color this bowl comes in cobalt blue or aqua blue.
This stand mixer comes with the basic set of attachments. It has the C-shaped dough hook for kneading bread and cookie dough, but it also comes with the balloon whisk and flat beater for mixing. All of these attachments and the housing are made out of stainless steel for a lasting construction.
This appliance has a solid base. It weighs approximately 35 pounds, so it's not something that you will want to move around very often. However, having this kind of weight does decrease the chances that this stand mixer will "walk" across the counter while it's mixing ingredients.

If you are looking for eye candy for your kitchen counter, the Jenn-Air Atrezzi should be considered. However if you are looking for a stand mixer that is more durable we suggest that you consider one of our higher-ranked products.
