Big semi industrial feel machine, big love

This is a mixer. It does exactly what it says on the box. Perfect for whipping 12-15 eggs at a time and very sturdy. I wanted a semi professional mixer that could handle regular big batches and I have not been disappointed. Perfect every time. Now for the down sides: the handle is very square and hurts if you have to lift repeatedly and finally it's loud.... really load. Because is belt pull powered it is very very powerful and with that comes the industrial sound. Don't get this if you do bakes late at night as you'll upset your neighbours. Other than that a sound purchase and I look forward to mixing for many years with my cute truffle mixer!
