I have the 6 qt KitchenAide and it comes with a shield and pour spout (which
I seldom use). It may be that the Cuisinart is more convenient and better
all around than the current crop of other mixers. That being said, if the
mixer is going to be used often for making bread, you will probably want the
largest motor and the strongest gears you can get.
