My parents got me this stand mixer for Christmas and I love it! I've never had a stand mixer before so I suppose I don't have anything to compare it to. It's easy to clean and SUPER cheap for a mixer! It does a great job, even with strong batters or doughs. Mine came with 2 beaters and 2 dough hooks, so my only con would be that I would have loved some whisks. But honestly, that's it. This has really upped my baking game!
