I bought this mixer a couple of months ago because I have arthritis and it is difficult for me to make cookie dough and bread dough, and I love to bake cookies and bread. My first time using, I made yeast rolls, because they take the most out of me. I used my own recipe that I have been using for 30+ years and this little mixer did all the work for me!!!! I was truly impressed, but still wanted to test it with cookie dough, and I was overjoyed that I can continue to make cookies without all the pain. I am truly impressed! I was hesitant at first, especially after reading some of the negative reviews, but knowing Wal-Mart and the purchases I have made with them in the past, I knew if I had a problem, I could return it. Now I can tell you, that will not happen!!!! Thank you for putting this little machine on sale so I could afford it. I am a senior citizen on a fixed income so I have to be careful when and where I spend my money. I wish I had bought this mixer years ago. Love, Love, Love it.
