Good points

  • Excellent results in our kneading (dough) test.
  • Controls are very easy to use.
  • Labelling shows what the different speeds are for.
  • Has internal cord storage.

But

  • Just OK results in our beating (egg whites) test.
  • Poor results in our mixing (cake batter) test.
  • No eject button for removing beater.
  • No splashguard (so adding ingredients can be messy).
  • The mixer head “jolts” during kneading (though this doesn’t make the mixer move).
  • Bowl and attachments aren’t dishwasher safe.
