Good points

  • Excellent results in our beating (egg whites) test.
  • Very good results in our mixing (cake batter) test.
  • Excellent results in our kneading (dough) test.
  • Has a splashguard.
  • Has a reasonably good selection of attachments (and their heights can be adjusted).
  • Bowl and attachments are dishwasher safe.
  • Has an extra outlet for optional attachments.

But

  • Controls are somewhat difficult to use.
  • Control lever can be stiff to operate.
  • The mixing tools are difficult to remove (the motor head doesn’t lift back).
  • The mixer head “jolts” during kneading (which can make the mixer move).
  • Bowl can be difficult to get in and out.
  • Comparatively heavy.
