I had a hand-held Sunbeam mixer before. It lasted me 22 years so that in itself attests to the durability of the machine. I like the look and the power of this machine (250). It is definitely stronger that the one I had beofre (200). I like the stand that comes with it. One thing I did not think was easy to work with is the release button. I have to push down really hard to release those blades. I am not one of those people who is constantly mixing and baking, so all in all this does the job for me. I did not rate it higher because it does not have a whisk and does not come with a bowl. So for the price paid and for your occasional use, this is not a bad machine at all.
