Promising review: "I bought this as a birthday day gift for my sister who loves cooking. Traditionally we knead dough every day to make Indian breads, and lately she would complain that her wrist is hurting from kneading and beating everything by hand. Since she started using the KitchenAid mixer, her wrist doesn't hurt, she experiments more with different kind of breads, cakes and cookies, and she can multitask. For example, while baking layered cakes — when the mixer is working, at the same time, she can prep other ingredients or just simply leave the kitchen, relax, and let the KitchenAid stand mixer do the job.
This appliance comes with a very sturdy dough hook, and the motor seems to power through whatever we throw at it. This is truly our best friend and the best helper in the kitchen we could have ever imagined. Just wonderful! My 'superchef' sister is thrilled, and I am eating better than ever." —opopat
