I’m not much of a baker, but as the holidays approach, I dust off my apron, pull out my cookie cutters, and bake my annual, obligatory holiday cookies. I always expect it to be a delightful experience, but after three hours in the kitchen, I am usually covered in flour, with a pile of bowls to wash, regretting the whole thing.
This year, however, the process was far less messy and laborious. That’s because I got to test GE Appliances’s newest machine, the Profile Smart Mixer, which launches today at Crate & Barrel and is the first of its kind on the market. It’s equipped with many handy features, like Alexa-enabled voice controls, a precise built-in scale, a timer, and auto-sense technology that monitors texture. All of these fancy features are pricey: At $999, it’s two or three times more expensive than other premium stand mixers on the market. But upon testing it, I found that the mixer was thoughtfully designed to make baking less stressful.
The company first started making small kitchen appliances in 1907, but in 1984, it sold off that division, focusing instead on the larger appliances it is now known for, like dishwashers and fridges. In 2020, it once again began making countertop appliances, like toaster ovens and ice makers. With its mixer, GE Appliances is trying to establish itself as a tech-forward player in this space. “This is a way for us to say, ‘We’re back’,” says André Zdanow, executive director of small domestic appliances for GE Appliances.
Over the last decade, both startups and established companies have flooded the market with internet-connected kitchen appliances, such as the Brava oven and the Mellow sous-vide machine. In each case, the goal is to make cooking more convenient for people who don’t have the time or interest to do it the old-fashioned way. But so far, technology hasn’t revolutionized cooking: These devices generally shave off a few minutes of cooking time or allow you to automate features on an app. And given the significantly higher price of these devices, the question is whether the cost justifies these enhancements. That’s what I was trying to assess when I tested the Profile Smart Mixer.
Out of the box, the mixer was easy to set up. You can click the bowl and attachment into place with one hand thanks to well placed handles, which is useful when you’re multitasking in the kitchen. Then I surveyed the tech features, which were all clever, useful additions. Baking experts say that weight is a more accurate measurement than volume, which is why GE Appliances’s mixer comes with a precise, built-in scale. You can weigh an ingredient in the bowl, then reset the scale to zero to add your next ingredient, which reduces the number of dishes you have to clean. There’s also a timer function, so if the recipe calls for you to mix the batter for two minutes, you can program it to mix then shut off automatically, allowing you to step away as the mixer does its thing.
There are also voice-activated controls that work using Alexa or Google Home assistant. At first, I thought this would be superfluous, but as I was working on banana bread, with my hands covered in egg and butter, it was suddenly clear how useful it would have been to not have to switch the mixer on manually (I wasn’t able to test this function before launch).
To use the mixer’s most futuristic features, you need to connect it to GE Appliances’s app, which is loaded with recipes optimized to use with the appliance, including cakes, cookies, and savory items, like aioli. When you use a recipe on the app, the mixer follows along as you go through each step. For instance, if a recipe calls for 80 grams of butter, the mixer will automatically set the scale’s weight; if the butter needs to be creamed for three minutes, the timer will set itself.
Most ingeniously, the mixer is equipped with technology that senses the texture of the mixture, so you never under or overmix your ingredients, both of which are problematic (overmixing can lead to too-chewy baked goods, while under-mixing can result in clumps that don’t cook properly). This feature only works with GE Appliances’s preloaded recipes, which is a major shortcoming. But when in use, it’s a particularly helpful feature for inexperienced home cooks like myself, since getting a recipe right often relies on intuition and experience. “Lots of people got into baking for the first time during the pandemic,” says Alicia Waters, EVP at Crate & Barrel. “But baking can be very intimidating for people who are just starting out, and this mixer is designed to take out some of that guesswork.”
One issue is that there are only about a dozen recipes uploaded to the app right now, though GE Appliances says it will continually be adding new ones. Perhaps more importantly, most people want to use their own recipes when baking. When you reference a favorite cookbook or a recipe passed down in your family, the mixer suddenly becomes a lot less “smart.” The scale and the voice commands still work, but those features alone won’t radically improve your baking.
Zdanow says that eventually the auto-sensing technology will work with any recipe not just the ones available in the app. The idea being that a person can input what they are making, like bread or a cake, and the mixer will stop mixing when the texture seems ready. “The stand mixer, more than any other appliance, is expected to be durable,” he says. “The vision is for the product to get better over time. We want to use predictive analytics to understand what is going on in the bowl—with the help of the scale—so we can help you improve your baking.”
The GE Profile Smart Mixer is available for preorder today ($999) at Crate & Barrel. It will be available at a wider range of retailers starting next June.

Planetary or regular? Which mixer to choose? And How? Do not miss the important, do not overpay for the extra!
To help you choose the right mixer for your home, ask yourself a few questions, such as: What dishes will I cook most often? Do you like it fast or is it not the main thing? Where will the new device be located? Is there space in the kitchen?
If you cook occasionally, the kitchen is small, there is nowhere to put it, then the answer seems to be obvious: a hand mixer. The one you hold in your hands over a bowl of whipped product. But, in our opinion, the answer is not correct! Why? A hand mixer is indeed much smaller in size than a stationary, tabletop mixer with a bowl. But…
- you will most likely buy a bowl for it. It is inconvenient to beat pancake dough in kitchen bowls: splashes fly. And another “deeper” bowl will stand somewhere and take up space in a small kitchen. Nozzles for a hand mixer will also be “somewhere” put.
- is probably why you rarely use it: first you need to collect everything you need in different boxes, then stand and hold it in your hands until the hand mixer beats and mixes. Faster, easier and cleaner – with a fork (whisk)
Stand mixer is “more honest” in this sense: already with its appearance it says: “I need a place”! But if you chose it and conveniently placed it, then it will “serve and thank you”.
- All collected in one place (nozzles can be stored in the bowl): plug and play.
- If you do not need to stand and hold the mixer “canopy” in your hand, most likely, and “what to do with it” – there is. With it, you can quickly and efficiently knead the dough for pancakes, whip cream, mousse, curd, fruit and vegetable mixtures.
- While the mixer is frothing the egg whites, you can do a lot of useful things: prepare all the ingredients for the dish, or, on the contrary, put everything in its place, cut the apples for the filling. Yes, you never know! For example, sit down and enjoy a cup of aromatic coffee!
Some important technical details when choosing a stand mixer with a bowl:
- 0028 small number of products. As a rule, this is not specified in the device parameters, but it has “practical meaning”,
- stand mixers are often equipped with a bowl rotation mechanism: this certainly improves the quality of the work performed by the mixer.
- if you plan to frequently knead dough for bread, pastries, homemade pasta – choose the most powerful tabletop mixer, or better – a planetary mixer with a power range of 600 – 1300W.
What is the difference between a planetary mixer and a stationary mixer?
In the “regular” nozzles are fixed in pairs and rotating (each around its own axis), mix (or whip) the original product. In some models, the bowl also rotates, which adds quality to the process.
In planetary mixers, the nozzle (one, without a pair) also rotates around its axis. Additionally, and along a different trajectory, the platform in which the nozzle is fixed rotates. In other words: the platform, moving along its “orbit”, delivers the nozzle to the right place. The nozzle does “its job”: beats, kneads, mixes. It is this “double rotation” that ensures the efficiency of the process.
And then: everything is like “in the good old days”: more power – faster, more speeds – the ability to choose at what speed to start / end the process and select it according to your plans.
The power of the planetary ones is usually higher than that of the “ordinary” ones. The number of speeds for “ordinary” 2-5, for planetary ones reaches 12. For those who love to bake cakes, pastries (with their huge number of variations and nuances) and for gourmets, this is important.
Choice of bowl (bowl) volume of the mixer and other parameters worth paying attention to
- Bowl capacity. On the one hand, a large bowl will allow you to knead a LOT and AT ONCE! But, is it worth buying, if such a case can be – once in a lifetime (or not!). And a large appliance (more bowl – more appliance) will always stand in the kitchen, every day! Perhaps you should choose “for everyday needs”, and in “the same case” knead twice? What’s more, it’s fast!
- Bowl material. Metal ones are stylish, easy to clean, do not absorb odors, do not deform or break. However, reliable manufacturers, as a rule, use high-quality plastic and glass.
Available with timer (device will turn on or off at the specified time). They are, of course, more expensive. If the function is important to you, you should hardly skimp on it. If you usually “cook together” – there is no need to overpay.
Planetary mixers can be distinguished by control panel . Mechanical panels are considered more reliable, a device with a touchscreen looks more modern.
Let’s not talk about “ color options ” devices: there are a lot of them! By the way, it is often the color that is the key indicator when choosing!
Choosing a kitchen mixer by manufacturer: everyone has their own criteria: someone will prefer little-known but ambitious developers who have come out to conquer the market with attractive prices, stylish design (expressive advertising or bright packaging). Someone prefers to choose within their favorite brand. Some look for reviews on the Internet or on the advice of friends. Others – intuitively, “at the behest of the heart” and each time – in different ways. Matter of temperament, habit, taste and experience.
Choose as you see fit, as you like, as you are used to, but not “from the worst – the best”. The main thing is that the purchase pleases, that it is simple and pleasant to work with the device, and the finished dish delights. Our advice when buying is one: pay attention to details and trifles: as you know, they can tell a lot “about the main thing”.
