Pros: Sturdy, powerful, easy to use
I've had this mixer for 9 months now, and I love it. I bought it primarily for making bread, and it has held up to that, and other uses (it makes great whipped cream!) splendidly. I was a bit unsure about buying it at first, because of the cost, but decided that, "You get what you pay for" and I didn't want to have a cheap mixer that would break on me quickly. This mixer has proven to be very much worth the money I paid for it.
