For the price this is a ok mixer, not used the dough hook yet. The negatives; mixers (blade and whisk) don't go to base of the bowl, therefore requires a lot of scraping down and mixing the bottom the arm of the mixer doesn't lift high enough above the bowl, this makes it awkward to add ingredients and mix the bottom (see point above) the plastic shield pushes onto the mixer but falls off and not very snug fitting The blade part isn't metal so not sure how long this will hold up, the whisk and the dough hook are Good points; lightweight but moves around a bit when on high speeds with a lot of ingredients bowl easy to remove and clean does the job for the prices but would recommend spending a bit more as the negatives really bother me!
Been using it for the last few months and happy to recommend it. All parts are working well. I read other reviews which highlighted that hooks broke after first use. This hasn't happened with me, I don't put extra strain on the machine and use on low speed when dough is really thick. The motor has got the power too and it's easy to clean. Wifey is happy 😊
I ordered this so that I could start making my Christmas cakes. It arrived on time and was well packed. Lovely cream colour and seems very sturdy. I can't comment on the durability as I have only used it once to test it out when I made a chocolate cake the day after I got it. I'm looking forward to using this and it looks very smart sitting on my kitchen bench. Thank you.
I bought this for my granddaughter for her 13th birthday - she absolutely loves it.Seems well-made and substantial, with various beaters, enabling her to make a variety of cakes etc. It's solid and I think (hope) will last her for many years to come.
When I first got my mixer I was so excited, it's such a beautiful colour (red) and it was a nice size so fits underneath cabinets easily and not to heavy to shift back and forth when I need it. I've made a few things with it now and it's been great apart from when it comes to making bread. It's like it can't handle the extra work of making the dough and it really slows down and almost sounds like it's struggling, it does keep going but the speed does drop and the first time it happens I I did worry it was going to stop altogether but I kept it going and did do the job. So mostly I am happy with it, I wouldn't be using it every day so for me it's fine but for someone looking to use it more often for bigger masses maybe not so
