Good points

  • OK results in our mixing (cake batter) test.
  • Excellent results in our kneading (dough) test.
  • Controls are OK to use.
  • Bowl is dishwasher safe.
  • Has a splashguard.
  • Can add optional accessories that attach to the motor of the mixer.

But

  • Just OK results in our beating (egg whites) test.
  • No scraper-beater attachment.
  • 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).
  • Considerable strength needed to remove bowl.
  • Bowl has small base area so can be unstable on the bench.
