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.
  • Controls are very easy to use.
  • Labelling shows what the different speeds are for.
  • Bowl and attachments are dishwasher safe.
  • Has a reasonably good selection of attachments.
  • Has cord storage.

But

  • The mixer head “jolts” during kneading (which can make the mixer move).
  • No splashguard supplied (so adding ingredients can be messy).
  • No eject button for removing beater.
