Excerpt: Very impressed with BuyDig.com Never used them before. But free shipping, quality product and very reasonable price means I will buy here again with confidence.
Pros: Hi wattage compared to the other leading brand. Quick shipping. Free. Heavy and durable. Nice mixing bowl, dough hook, mixer beater and whisk plus a drip ring to avoid drips when adding ingredients.
Summary: I looked at other products, and the one most people seem to want is so expensive! I reviewed all the features of the Hamilton Beach and decided to give it a try. I am so glad I purchased this. I truly believe it does everything the "popular brand" does. It is well made and looks good, too.
Hamilton Beach Electrics 63227 All-Metal Stand Mixer, Licorice Hamilton Beach

Summary: I am such a very happy camper. Not to be used for professional. But, oh wow, what a great, great mixer. I am so loving it. I love to bake pastries, pies, cakes, and bread. It's so very sturdy and heavy. No slipping and sliding and the bowl holds on tight.
Summary: As a pastry chef student, I felt I needed a mixer to practice the recipes at home so I could better perform at school. I was saddened very quickly when I saw that most mixers were way out of my families budget range ($250 and up).
Summary: I bought this mixer for myself, after wanting one for ages, and I love it. Being all metal, it's very heavy, but that's exactly what I expected. It won't walk all over the counter when being used for thick batters, or bread dough.
Summary: I purchased this mixer primarily to make bread dough. I had been using my 2lb break machine to do so, rarely using it to actually bake (don't like the shape of pan). But I wanted to step up to a mixer that could do a better job, and with a little more capacity.
Summary: Bought this for my wife as a gift and it far exceeds our expectations, has a lot of power but is very quiet easy to use and is more powerful than the Kitchen Aid model we were going to buy but found too expensive for us at this time. Very impressed and it comes with a 3 year warranty!
Summary: This was purchased to replace our old Hamilton Beach Electrics Stand Mixer. Our old mixer can no longer handle heavy loads like bread dough, but works fine for other mixing jobs. Our positive experience with the first mixer is why we replaced it with the same make and model.
Summary: I've used my Hamilton Beach Eclectic stand mixer for three weeks now and so far so good. It mixes well and thorough (on speeds 6 and below) even though the 4.5 quart bowl is not smooth and flat on the bottom. When mixing on speeds higher than level 6, there is noticeable vibration from the machine.
