Summary: Granted I have not had my mixer very long, but so far i love it. The power is good, I love the variable speeds. This mixer was affordable compared to others. And my rewards points were good towards the purchase, which really helped out alot.
Summary: I don't use this for anything other than making cookies or the occasional loaf of bread, but it's worked very well for both. I do have to scrape the bottom of the bowl a bit, but I think that's common. I've given up on the splatter guard- it makes it difficult to add ingredients.
Summary: I had a Hamilton Beach 275 watt mixer for well over 15 years and was very happy with it until I stuck the bowl scraper in a beater and bent one beater and did something that caused the lower speeds not to work too well.

Summary: I am just writing this review but I had this mixer since August 12, 2012. My husband bought it for me at an amazing price!!! I love to bake and this was an excellent gift...just because :0). He had bought me a hand held that I still have to use for small jobs.
Summary: My mixer arrived today, and we soon got off on the wrong foot.. As soon as I turned it on, I saw that it was a six speed mixer, with the speeds labeled two thru twelve.. I am insulted by this..
Summary: I bought this after trying the Kitchen Aid "Professional" model. The Kitchen Aid had an unbelievably loud whine and the motor started smoking during the first batch of bread dough! I sent it back and did a consumer reports search for a better one.
Summary: I love making bread but without a good mixer, kneading dough properly is a pain and a workout. I have a nice bread machine, but I wanted a traditional loaf of bread baked in a traditional pan.
Summary: This is a great standing mixer for the amazing chef/baker in your life. You can make anything with this wonderful mixer - breads, cakes, cookies (especially really thick oatmeal cookies with raisins, craisins, nuts, coconut, peanut butter - THE WORKS!
Summary: I had a Professional Mixer, Sunbeam Mixmaster, for 25 years and thought it was starting to die. It also had dough hooks and was super at making anything. 2 sizes of stainless steel bowls came with it. The bowl would spin around when the beaters were on.
