Good points

  • Very good results in our beating (egg whites) test.
  • OK results in our mixing (cake batter) test.
  • Excellent results in our kneading (dough) test.
  • Controls are OK to use.
  • Spring-loaded motor head is easy to use.
  • Has a splashguard.

But

  • No scraper-beater attachment.
  • Not dishwasher safe.
  • No eject button for removing beater.
  • The mixer head “jolts” during kneading (which can make the mixer move).
  • Bowl has no handle so needs two hands to unlock it.
  • Mixing bowl has small base so unstable on bench.
  • Maximum operating time of 7 minutes.
  • Pouring shield is annoying (needs to be removed when lifting the motor head).
