Cons:Not strong enough to mix rye bread 1 pound, but book says it can!!???
I have the same mixer and I am so sad that even people at the manufacturer's place don't know how many AMPS it has.
The 400 watts is not the strength of the machine but they make it look like it is.
I burned out 2 of them mixers so far and I am happy to write few words.It is not worth the money they charge.
I paid $130 in Canada and I am ready to give this one back it OVERHEATS quickly AND.................
It SPITS BLACK GREASE from the attachment shaft INTO my food.
It is awful that this type of screw up is allowed in the market. Don't they test the machine's first?
