A just had to have this year. I really wanted to get a mixer with a stand for myself. Seeing a nice deal on this item, I decided to buy it. As soon as I brought it home I set out to use it and made my first batch of chocolate cupcakes.
The ease of this item was nice. I was very happy with it. The one thing that was a great feature is that the mixer can be used as a stationary mixer or a stand mixer which is a nice feature. A lot of stand mixers can not be removed. This mixer removes easily with the push of a button. The mixer bowl which is stainless steel makes cleanup a breeze. The bowl itself sits on a plate that can rotate in circles along with back and forth. Most do not have the back and forth feature. That was a nice touch.
I have only used this mixer a few times, but I love it. The only thing I would change is how many accessories it comes with. I wish it would have came with a few more choices then it did. Other then that I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a cheaper stand mixer.
