My Review 

I love cooking and baking but the arthritis has gotten so painful I thought I would have to give this up. With the stand mixer all the tasks I had done by hand or with portable mixer are now done with my favorite tool. Along with a food chopper, I can enjoy baking and cooking again. And with the 4.5 qt mixing bowl (without handles) I can grasp it with both arms instead of hands to pour into baking pans. When making cookies no more trying to hang on to a mixing bowl - the mixer bowl is firmly locked in place to ease scooping. I have placed the stand mixer on a counter that makes standing easier or use a bar stool and leave the mixer in that position.

Would you recommend this to a friend?
