The mixer works perfectly and is far superior to other brands I've owned over the past 35 years. Its spout enables ingredients to be added with little or no effort. It is neat and efficient. I'm delighted to have this mixer in my kitchen.
This stand mixer exceeds its reputation, which is formidable. I had purchased another stand mixer, less expensive, but a known national brand, that burnt out after fewer than 10 uses, and was leery at first, having had such a bad experience with that one. I use this one for everything. It mixes like a dream. It is very easy to use. It cleans up quickly and nicely. The only thing I've not tried yet is mixing bread dough, which will be happening very soon. My opinion will most likely become even more favorable.
I really love the sleek look of this and I got a $50 rebate. I've always wanted one and finally, after purchasing several for others for weddings and housewarmings, I have one for myself. Works well and the attachments are endless. I just bought the spiralizer attachment which makes my salads look artistically amazing! Kitchenaid is still #1 for me.
