Not a great buy
Bought this at half price and thought it was a bargain. Mixing batter for Yorkshire puds was easy and completed quickly.
Unfortunately when mixing dough for bread the ingredients came together, climbed the dough hooks and started to creep into the internal mechanism.
Returned for a no quibble refund.

Get what you pay for
Good price for basic mixer, from a respected maker, no frills, fits easily into cupboard and simple to use. The mixer when hand held is very sturdy.
Performance on the one cake I have tried so far was OK. Machine seemed to struggle in creaming the butter and sugar, the whisking blades were moving but bowl not rotating. Adding the dried ingredients (i use 6/6/4 combination rather than 4/4/2 mix) it managed, however the bowl did not revolve smoothly and I did have to scrape sides quite a lot.
Having said all that the proof of the cake/pudding is in the eating and it was tasty, light and fluffy.

This mixer is excellent value for money. I've made loads of cupcakes with this mixer since I purchased it and they have all been lovely. I'ts easy to store, clean, and use. The only difficult part on it was removing the beaters, but i'm sure in time these will become easier with use.I would certainly recommend this mixer.
