GE has introduced a new stand mixer called the Profile Smart Mixer that aims to streamline baking with its built-in digital scale and voice controls. The mixer has a tare function on its base that allows ingredients to be weighed directly in the bowl or in a separate vessel. The mixer can also be used with the SmartHQ app, which offers step-by-step recipe guidance, and the “Auto Sense” feature, which claims to detect changes in texture to prevent over- or under-mixing. The mixer is compatible with Google and Amazon’s smart speakers and has a maximum speed of 11, which is closer to a blender’s speed than a traditional stand mixer. The mixer has a suggested retail price of $999.
