Our Verdict

The Breville Scraper Mixer Pro offers users the standard attachments of dough hook, flat beater, and whisk, but also throws in its namesake scraper beater. The competition sells this attachment aftermarket. While this feature is welcomed as it works well, it does not mitigate the mixer's overall want for power. This machine can manage most of the tasks we tested. However, if regular use of the machine is your goal, there are more reliable machines for around the same amount of money.

Our Analysis and Test Results

The Breville Scraper Mixer offers consumers the standard tilt-head configuration with a couple of bonus features. Namely, this machine comes with a rubber-edged flat beater that scrapes the bowl as it works. Also, this model has a digital timer and 12 speed settings to meet a wide variety of recipes. While these are all nice features, they stand in the shadow of a machine that is underpowered for heavy doughs.

We really like the Breville's scraper attachment. One of the biggest problems that we find with stand mixers is that they often leave a gap between the bowl and the mixing attachment. This results in unmixed ingredients and poor outcomes. The scraper attachment addresses this problem by using a pliable material at the edge of the attachment that will bend and adjust to meet as it works around the bowl.

The addition of a timer is a nice feature as well. There are several scenarios where this comes in handy, not least of all kneading dough. A thoughtful addition to the timer is that the time pauses with the mixer is stopped. We also appreciate the expanded speed settings. Finally, the balloon whisk worked well aerating egg whites.

A frequent problem with mixers is underpowered motors and low-quality gears transferring power. These weaknesses reveal themselves when the machine is working heavy or dense ingredients. The Breville Scraper certainly has better components than others in our review. However, it still struggles with mixing and kneading doughs.

The component problem also creates concerns about the long-term durability of the machine. We witnessed stalling and jerking of the attachment, as well as shaking of the machine as a whole. Moreover, we observed clicking noises and acrid smells issuing from the motor. These appear to be the symptoms of future failure if the tasks producing them were frequently repeated.


We see value as a balance between cost and performance in the context of other similar product in the class. What one ideally wants is a product that delivers high quality and a reasonable cost. The Breville Scraper Mixer Pro does not meet this criterion. Additionally, we have reservations about this machine's long term durability. As such, we do not consider this mixer to be a good value.

The Breville Scraper Mixer Pro has all the standard tilt-head features and attachments, plus a few extra. These are an effective scraper paddle, a timer, and a broader range of speed settings. However, this machine is underpowered for its bowl size. Additionally, we felt that the user interface was relatively hard to see without turning the machine. The bottom line is that this machine will tackle most recipes, but it struggles with the more demanding ingredients.
