I wanted to buy a Kitchen-Aid stand mixer, my dream one. But, the price point was so good. The motor is strong and mixed ingredients very well. The dial is made out of plastic, I wish it was made out of steel. The mixer flat beater is made out of some rubber plastic material, which I don't like. It should've been steel. With all that said, it is a very good entry level mixer. I would recommend buying one. But, I wish there was a way to upgrade attachments. I still will purchase a Kitchen-Aid mixer in the future.
