I wanted a small mixer to use for multiple jobs. I first used my mixer to make body butters. It was able to mix shea butter along with other oils and butters very thoroughly. Very good item!
Had three choices one I never heard of this model and one I thought was over priced. I chose this because I thought the brand would be reliable. Took it home, first the beaters are as thick as a wisk, started the mixer and it didn't have much power. I wouldn't recommend this for anything more the mixing eggs and you can do a better job by hand.
This is a wonderful lightweight mixer; better than the former one I had.
I bought this light duty mixer a few years ago on black friday, it works fine for mixing batters, etc. I wouldn't try it for heavy dough
