I enjoy cooking, but I don’t enjoy the mess that comes with it. I tend to shy away from recipes that require me to use multiple appliances and dishes. Who wants to spend an hour washing appliances after already spending that time preparing a meal?The Breville Handy Mix Scraper solves some of those problems for me. It comes equipped with BPA-free scraper beaters, twin balloon whisks and dough hooks. By simply switching out the accessories I can accomplish multiple tasks without making a huge mess.

The scraper beaters are fantastic. They mix to the edge of the bowl without all of the clanging, and I don’t need to follow them with a spatula. The dough hooks allow me to make dough without kneading it by hand, and the whisks are perfect for whipped cream.

The Handy Mix Scraper™ with Beater IQ™ knows which beaters you’re using and automatically adjusts the ratio to suit what you’re mixing. That is a handy option!

I serve this with roast beef and it’s always a winner! We enjoy it extra creamy, but if you would prefer it a little less cheesy, you can reduce the cream cheese in the recipe to half. Either way, this is a rich recipe, so I save it for special occasions.

The Breville Handy Mix Scraper made it easy to get the texture I wanted without making a big mess in a blender or food processor.
