Does what it needs to, 2 Jun. 2008
I've only had this a few weeks but I'm really pleased with it. Other reviewers have complained that the attachments don't reach the bottom of the bowl, in my opinion if they did you'd end up with a damaged bowl. For cake mixing I use the spatula provided & hold it at the base of the bowl away from the blades & since the bowl turns it helps turn over the mixture so there's no need to keep stopping & starting.
I was in two minds whether to just get a hand mixer but since the head lifts off from this one it's just another problem solved. At this price you can't do much better. The booklet that comes with it has a troubleshooting guide in case you have problems with your cake not rising etc & some extra recipe suggestions too.
If you're just getting started with home baking I would recommend this above a top of the range higher priced version. Again if you're only going to use it occasionally what's the point in spending more.
