Summary: I'd wanted one of these for ages and tracked best price online. This took about 5 weeks from order to arrive but was well worth the wait. It is quite heavy to move around so best bet is to find a place for it in the kitchen and keep it there. Fantastic for mixing, blending and kneading. Baked loads since it arrived. Love all the colours on it too. Pricey but recommended.
Summary: I have only used the mixer once but I was pleasantly surprised that it was not too noisy and kept stable against the worktop. You also get an additional flexible beater which is excellent for creaming. The mixer looks great and modern. Found it a bit fiddly to put the splash guard on first but realised you had to line it up a mark on the mixer!
