My husband helped my girls buy this for Mother's Day. It is a great disappointment. The plastic is cheap and brittle, the mixer does not raise on the hinge so it is difficult to pull the bowl out; the bowl does not rotate independently, and even in the outermost position, still leaves about 2 inches between beaters and the edge of the bowl. The worst part is the mixing blades only come to about 1 inch from bottom of bowl, so it mixes extremely little. I tried to beat eggwhites, but even taking the mixer off the stand, it does not have enough speed to ever make stiff peaks. It does not have power to mix something thick, like cookie dough, and the "dough hooks" are a joke--thin metal sort of corkscrew things that do absolutely nothing. I did not even try kneading bread dough, because I didn't want the extra work of cleaning up the mess. I am really in a quandary, because my little girls think they gave mommy a great present, and I hate to have the thing even taking up counter-space! Am not sure how to politely send it to the dump!
