The bowl is extremely heavy glass so once you've mixed your ingredients it's very difficult to man-handle the bowl to tilt it to get the ingredients poured in your pans. The beaters come out while mixing. I've pushed and pushed them in but once you lift the head the beaters often stay in the bowl. Not every time but enough that it's aggravating to have to dig your beaters out of wet cake mix.
I don't have a recommendation for something better. I'll keep using this one because I just can't afford another one. But I do recommend you pass on this one and find better luck with another brand.
As others have said, you do have to do some mixing by hand, but let's face it, this is not some fancy Food Network stand mixer. It is a glorified hand mixer. It isn't intended to be a product to help you with your massive Thanksgiving/Christmas baking. In fact, I would rate it among those products that you might use if you are teaching someone young how to bake. Who cares if this breaks? It was $20. I am all for getting the most bang for your buck, but this simply isn't one of those "great buys" in the sense of being cheap but having functionality comparable to a $300 mixer. It is fun. It is for the inexperienced baker, who decided on a whim, "I want to bake a cake today." If you are an aspiring Iron Chef, this item is not for you. Save your money and buy a more expensive mixer. But, I think this is a great product for the price.
Every time I mix with this I have to do extra work with a spatula to move the dough around inside mixer for it to mix accordingly. It is very useful for someone that bakes occasionally and for fun. I bake every other day! so this item was not for me. I will invest in getting a Kitchen Aid electronic mixer.
