Machine Broken - Warranty fix disaster (terrible customer service)


Bottom line is I wish I spent that little extra and brought a Kitchen Aid!

This machine broke and the warranty process has taken nearly 3 months so far (still going). Told it would get fixed, waited weeks before I started to follow up. Then after following up approx 4 times with company fixing it and Breville I was told parts could not be secured, so I would get a replacement machine.

Fast forward almost 3 months - no parts to fix machine, no new machine and still no ETA. I would not buy another Breville product as after care is terrible.

Purchased in August 2018 at The Good Guys for $370.00.

the Bakery Boss BEM823

hi there! i just ordered a BEM823. what if any, are the differences between the 823 and the 825. any performance or technical difference or advantages of the newer 823?

2 answers

As far as I’m aware only difference between BEM823 & BEM825 is colour.

advantages of the newer 823 - not across this.

My experience with this machine has not been great when things went wrong.

uh oh......:(



the Bakery Boss BEM823

Can anyone tell me the weight of the glass bowl please? - I have a disability in which my hands are affected and I'm not able to head into a store to check it out. (Due to having a compromised immune system my drs are making me stay put in the house other than for medical/hospital appts, so I'm not likely to be able to get to a store any time soon to get a feel for it until the COVID-19 concerns ease up.) The glass bowl is my main hesitation so far in buying the BEM823 online right now as I've only used stainless steel bowls so far. And can you purchase a stainless steel bowl separately that works well with all the whisk, beater, etc attachments and what is the bowl's capacity and does it have a handle? I've read that with the BEM825 there were issues with tool attachments, etc not working well in the second stainless steel bowl. Many thanks!!

Breville the Bakery Boss BEM823


At $549, Breville’s ‘The Bakery Boss’ offers a stand mixer equipped with some more extra features than the less-premium Breville Scraper Mixer. For $170 extra, is The Bakery Boss worth it?

According to our trusted reviewers, the performance of the Bakery Boss isn’t justifiably more impressive than its cheaper counterpart, the Breville Scraper Mixer by Breville. The Bakery Boss features a higher number of included attachments, double the number of speed settings, and a higher wattage. However if you’re looking for an stand mixer that can tackle most of your everyday baking tasks, the Breville Scraper Mixer should probably suffice.

Key Features:

  • Includes a scraper beater, standard flat beater, dough hook, wire whisk, splash guard, pouring shield and spatula
  • The beater is designed with an in-built spatula on both sides (the ‘scraper beater’), which wipes down the sides of the bowl, allowing for both thorough mixing as well as easier cleaning
  • Planetary mixing action ‘ensures 360 degree coverage of the entire bowl’ to ensure no raw ingredients are left behind
  • Built from a die-cast metal mixer body and 4.7L borosilicate glass bowl with a handle for easier pouring
  • Offers 12 speed settings (compared to the Scraper Mixer’s six settings) and 1200 watts of power (vs. the Scraper Mixer’s 900 watts).
