I have had this now for over a year and it is a great piece of equipment. I use it for breads and large cakes not on a regular basis but from time time when my little kenwood wont do the job. I had issues with the supplier because it took ages to ship. I needed it to make a 4 tier wedding cake with a 14" base fruit cake (big wedding). My advise is order in advance but apart from that its as good as a hobart. weighs a ton so is a 2 man effort to move about. I have it on a base that has wheels so its easy to move around the kitchen. It has 3 gears as you can imagine 3 whips up batter in no time at all. it has a safet guard for fingers that cuts the machine dead when opened and wont srat again until its closed. a leaver lifts the bowl and has a locking mechanisim so stop it from flying odd its base. It comes with 3 attachments and as stated the machinary is solid, the attachments are solid and touch wood i havent had issues with it since owning it.
Great price great machine.
