Do you have a problem with the mixer shaking while mixing?
I just got one for Christmas and have only used it twice and it shakes really bad even on setting 4 creaming butter and sugar. Wondering if anyone else has this problem??
I just bought a Cuisinart 800W. I so love it!! I have found though that if the surface is not completly level it will shake a bit (very slightly), using speed 4 & up.
1000W & 800W is pretty powerful, with all of that power & the orbital action, I wonder if a bit of shaking might be normal?
That being said, I have only had my mixer for a few weeks, maybe someone with more experince can help.
I have the Cuisinart 1000 watt. I haven't really noticed any shaking unless the mixture is too dry.
Is your surface level? Is the bowl turned so it's locked into posisition?
If you keep having the shaking problems, call Cuisinart and see what they say. I know my timer doesn't work anymore and I had only used it once. It's still under warranty, so I need to call them myself. Otherwise I love it
I have the Cui9sinart 1000 watt also. Yes, it does shake, a lot. I'm sure it's because the motor is so powerful. I've had my mixer for a year now and even with the shakes, it still performs very well. Wooo, try making gum paste in it, it will do a dance right down your counter, but it's never given any indication that motor is straining.
