I absolutely love this machine. I have wanted one for years and finally broke for it.
There is some concern, apparently, about the gears under heavy load but so far mine has held up. I find 4 loaves of bread is a big enough load for it. 3 is about right. Bread can be mixed right to the finish in it, grease the bowl and let it rise. So easy! I rarely buy bread anymore.
It also mixes fast. Faster than anything else I've ever used.
The only drawback I can think of is it doesn't whip small amounts very good. For instance whipped cream. Unless you're making 2 cups or more it isn't really deep enough in the bowl for the wire whip to really get into it.
I've used it to make pasta several times, used the vegetable slicer and the grinder attachments. It's pretty useful. It's not heavy grade....if you're an institution or caterer you might need something more substantial. But for my uses it's lovely. Also the bright red is inspiring. :-)
It's quite heavy, I believe around 30 lbs(?)? I leave mine on a kitchen cart and keep the attachments handy inside the cart. It's tall and heavy, not something you'd want to be dragging out of a cupboard or you likely won't use it much.
