We got this after my Kitchenaid mixer stopped working thinking it might be a decent less expensive option. We couldn't have been more wrong. I am most definitely not impressed. For the price of it ( ($120) I would expect a somewhat decent product. There is a speed dial, but it only seems to go one speed no matter where I set it. The bowl spins in the wrong direction for proper mixing. Everything gathers at the sides of the bowl where the beaters don't reach.
Save your money and put it towards a better mixer. I'm currently saving for a Cuisinart.
