Summary: I do not have room in my kitchen for a big kitchen aid mixer, but this one fits great. I use it for all different cooking and baking recipes. It fits the need and gets the job done just like a big mixer. Stores away easly and does not take up much room.
Summary: Another Christmas present that was a HUGE success. My daughter likes to bake and wanted a stand mixer. I bought this one and she loves it; my grandsons love it. They bake something every week, so this has gotten a lot of use over the last several months. I've had an opportunity to use this mixer a few times, and it is very nice. Of course, it's not a KitchenAid or Breville, but it also does not cost as much as those mixers do.
Summary: I have had this mixer a year. Here are the pros and cons: Pros: If you don't want the full blown large stand mixer the size and weight are a plus If you don't use a mixer heavily(for cookie doughs, bread doughs, or just very frequent use) If you want to use it as a hand mixer. The cord has a nice swivel device at the point it attaches to the mixer. Cons: That's why I'm writing my review. The beaters are peeling off their coating.
Summary: Although I don't personally use this mixer I have a thumbs up from my wife. It's exactly what she wanted and works as expected in both stand and free hand applications. The one and only aspect she doesn't like is that it is necessary to hold down a lever to tilt the mixer up, requiring a two handed operation. Otherwise, it's great.
Summary: Okay, I just received my mixer three days ago. The first day I got it, I made pizza dough and it came out great. Also, yesterday, I baked up a storm. I made a dozen cupcakes and two cakes, one square cake and one circle cake from scratch. no box mixes used. I read the bad reviews and began to get nervous when mine was en route. However, working with it made me realize some things.
Summary: This is a good little mixer for the price. very versatile with the options to go from hand to stand. In the stand you have to help incorporate ingredients, especially in the middle and around the sides, but i did not expect this to be the same quality as a kitchen aid mixer. You will be very happy with this machine if you are the occasional baker, the compact size makes this easy to store.
Mixer started smoking and smelled of burned rubber

Summary: I didn't listen to other reviewers who said that their mixer stopped working after one or two uses. I should have. The second time I used this machine - mixing a cake (not bread or anything heavy) - the mixer started smoking and smelled of burning. I immediately stopped using it. This is a piece of junk and wouldn't recommend anyone buy it.
