Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by grandma we purchased this item for our daughter, she was very excited about the quality, the ease of use and the special features.
Our daughter wanted a stand mixer for her birthday. We searched many stores and found this mixer at a GREAT price, well known name and it's features were perfect for her. We ordered it on line and she received it within a couple of days! She told us it was very easy to use, compact enough for her kitchen and very stylish.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mimi We like it very much.
We use it to make cakes and cookies. It is very quiet and smooth, sits tight on the counter with suction cups. Light weight, so it can be stored easily when the job is done.
The only con about this machine is that one of the mixing tools is made of plastic, otherwise perfect for the low price.

For 3 months, I have baked my own Brown Soda bread. Too many chemicals in store foods. At 70 years, I follow the advice of a RETIRED Food Co. Executive:- Cook everything you eat -yourself - "FROM SCRATCH" Thats what he does now. He should know !
Delivery was in good time & condition. Black fits in my kitchen, 'lucked out' but it was not important.
The family below have a 3 month baby & noise concerned me.
At slow speed:- no worries while baby is asleep; at max one expects it to make some noise, (daytime use only). Would not run it @ Max while baby asleep.
Wholemeal Soda Bread is a heavy dough. The machine takes it in its stride.
Ok..common sense.. Listen to the motor, if it slows down, STOP !
People ruin Electric motors as they push Drills, Etc., to a full stop & are ticked off when they burn out; then they blame the manufacturer. Come on !
It mixes the dough very well; now & again it's necessary to scrape all into middle, as I see professional cooks on TV doing same thing with expensive units, so I discount that. If it does heavy dough ok; then lighter batters, cream, etc, should not be a problem providing you don't run it flat out for an hour >:-0 ha - ha !.
Longevity remains to be seen but I think avoiding overstrain will see it last a long time.
I am very pleased with it.
