Unfortunately, it broke within two weeks. Something inside exploded, and the machine was banging and grinding. I used it three times mixing pudding. From my few uses, though, here is what I gathered. The control panel is nice. The machine's casing is pot metal, not aluminum or anything. You have to have the beater/whisk/dough hook in the bowl to put the bowl on the machine, and the bowl doesn't drop enough, so it's awkward holding the attachment while you try to align three connection points with limited space. The shield is held in place by three thumbscrews and is not quick disconnect. It's a pain to unscrew three screws to take it off to clean. It's a quiet machine until something breaks inside. It is low cost, but you get what you pay for in this case.
