A GREAT BUY
10 September 2016
I was a Baker for twenty years before the industry was killed by the in-store bakeries and wanted a stand mixer for bread making. After looking at all the specs and reading all the reviews I took the plunge and bought this one.
It arrived well packaged and it's quite heavy, in fact surprisingly heavy when you consider the bowl and tools are quite light and the body of the machine feels quite thin. I imagine that the actual frame and engine are quite substantial.
It's very easy to use, people have complained about the noise but I don't think it's too bad. I think the noise impression is because this has a deeper sound unlike a food processor which tends to have a higher pitch 'whining' or 'whirring' sound. This resonates through the work surface, but if you want a powerful motor you are going to get this anyway.
As for use, it mixes well, without complaint or struggling. Tools and bowl are easy to clean and the splash guard stays in place in use ( if it comes off you are over filling the mixer)
A GREAT BUY!!
