Good points

  • Excellent results in our beating (egg whites), mixing (cake batter) and kneading (dough) tests.
  • Controls are easy to use.
  • Bowl and attachments are dishwasher safe.
  • Has a spring-loaded head.
  • Comes with a scraper-beater attachment, spatula, creaming beater and folding tool.
  • Has a splashguard.
  • Has cord storage.
  • Beater height is adjustable.
  • Can add optional accessories that attach to the motor of the mixer.

But

  • No eject button for removing beater (hand can get covered in mixture).
  • The mixer head “jolts” during kneading (which can make the mixer move).
  • Tall narrow bowl requires effort to scrape out.
  • Tall mixing bowl may be difficult to fit in your sink.
