Summary: A nice powerful beefy mixer for that cookie dough. A bit of an annoyance for me is the fact that the electronic switch defaults back to the beginning each time you turn if off. I would prefer that if I set the mixer on say #3 that it would stay there. It won't and you can skip from start to 3 - you must go thru all the speeds. The whisk attachment is a wonderful included attachment. I wish that dough hooks were available as an extra attachment.
