I have been cooking for 47 years so am familiar with mixers and can honestly recommend this one. It is not too heavy, has good power, a low speed, a beautiful red color, and is reasonably priced. I use it several times a week and have just purchased another one to have for a backup when this one becomes unusable, because a good one is hard to find.
Both mixers I bought had the exact same problem. The plastic inserts that hold the attachments became loose after 3 uses and won't hold in the metal mixers. The first mixer broke after two uses, the second, three. Even though I love the color, I wouldn't buy this again.
Purchased this to replace my very old hand held mixer and I LOVE it. Easy to use, plenty of power, light weight.
