I bought this to replace an old hand mixer & I love it.
It's feels solid, without being heavy, not as noisy as I had expected it to be & it's oh so fast.
The stand is ok, I probably won't be using it as the mixer will be in a drawer.
I haven't used the dough hooks as I don't make bread. The beaters & hooks are long, so you can use a big bowl easily.
The very best thing about it is the gorgeous yellow color.
I am very happy with my purchase.
