When I first saw this mixer (a present from the in-laws) I honestly thought it was a joke. I couldn't tell what it was at first. When I finally saw that it was a mixer, my first thought was how am I going to use this? It looks like a family heirloom that needs to stop being passed down. Mixing Performance I will be honest I only used this thing once and that was while my family that gave it to me was visiting. I hate how it looks and how it works. Ease of Cleaning I will say that the one time I used it, it was easy to clean. Once I figured how to work it, it was easy to clean all the parts of it. Ease of Use I couldn't figure out how to work the thing! The whole product is just a nightmare. Design The picture actually does it justice, this looks worse in person. It doesn't match anything and the design make its hard to figure how it works at first. Durability Unfortunately this product hasn't broken yet. I would love to see it break somehow but it is to my dismay durable.
