Arrived in timely manner & in excellent condition. Easy to assemble and operate after learning proper operation. Particularly the installing bowl and removal of the bowl. Like the option of being able to lower the bowl to add ingredients and/or scraping sides of bowl. Mixing time is about half those experienced with other mixers. complements kitchen decor. Would be nice to have a second smaller bowl. Some receipes require two separate mixings i.e. beating egg whites to fold into mix.
