Good points

  • Excellent results in our beating (egg whites), mixing (cake batter) and kneading (dough) tests.
  • Controls are excellent to use.
  • Has a light under mixer head that illuminates bowl.
  • Has digital timer display.
  • Comes with a scraper-beater attachment and spatula.
  • Bowl and attachments are dishwasher safe.
  • Has a splashguard.
  • Has cord storage.
  • Comes with two different-sized bowls.
  • Labelling shows what different speeds are for.

But

  • The motor head isn’t spring loaded (so you need to hold the head when lifting and lowering).
  • No eject button for removing beater (hand can get covered in mixture).
  • The mixer head “jolts” during kneading (which can make the mixer move).
  • Bowls have a small base and can be unstable on the bench.
