I received mine as a gift and really like it. I have no other stand mixer to compare it to but have read about it in the blogs and see it is highly rated and an especially good value for the money.

It's really easy to clean. It does move a little bit with heavy doughs so you need to stay in the kitchen while it's working.

I'm not a professional or even semi-pro. I imagine if you bake for a living you would need more power.

I would NOT buy a Hamilton Beach. For occasional use would be fine, but I make about 3 cakes a week and have the stainless model. After about 2 months, it started hesitating when turned on and gets really hot when making icing. THe whisk attachment broke on the first use and I got no help from customer service. I'm sorry I wasted my money. I'm now in the market for a KitchenAid or Viking brand. KitchenAid replaced a bowl set after one of mine got a hole in it...so I feel their customer service would be invaluable. Hamilton Beach never even returned my calls or emails about the problems I had. Hope this helps.
