Bought this for my wife. She does a lot of baking. This thing is pure quality. The build is what you'd expect in a Mercedes. The Germans know how to build things with quality in mind. My wife was looking at a video of someone using a kitchen aid mixer, the aparant big guns in mixers...15-20minutes to make a meringue. This this did it in 3 minutes, and to quote my wife... The best meringue I've ever seen.
