I looked and looked and never thought I would find this mixer at this price. I love it love it love it. It makes quick work of all my mixing needs, mows right through butter and cream cheese right from the fridge. T he splatter shield makes it neat and easy to add ingredients. It even scrapes the sides of the bowl. The only thing it didn't get was a little of the flour at the bottom when I was making a big batch of brownies. I wish I had bought this mixer sooner. I bake commercially for a small restaurant and catering business I love this mixer.
