Well I am very impressed
I was an electric hand beater user, well no more. I bought the KMart Diecast stand mixer just after Christmas (thanks to my companies Christmas gift voucher) and just used today for first time making my New York style baked cheesecake. I tested the highest speed and the stand did not move a millimetre. I got a lighter and fuller cheesecake filling. It mixed very well, wasn’t noisy, super smooth, easy to operate and the end result was way better than expected. I did stop and scrape the sides once or twice, but I would always do that when using ...the electric hand beaters anyway. I did my research, it was voted no. 6 on Canstar Blue reviews beating (pardon the pun) many well known brands, I watched the channel nine test and read every review I could find. For an occasional user like me it is great value and does the job. I just could not justify spending hundreds of $ on better brands, for the sake of having a brand name. It is a 10 out 10 for me
Purchased in December 2020 for $149.00.

Amazing Stand Mixer! Would recommend!
I’ve used it a few times including making bread and for dough. I believe the motor is really powerful although it does shake a bit and a bit loud on the higher settings. But the quality is really good for the price, considering the attachments are metal and the base is quite heavy. The attachments also reach the bottom of the bowl which is rare even for more expensive stand mixers!
Questions & Answers
Have you tried buttercream in it? How did it perform? Thanks
Sorry I haven’t made butter cream. I’m an occasional baker and to date I have used about 6 times for cheesecake filling, meringue and cream. The mixer mixes well and gets everything in the bowl, yes still have to scrape sides but you have to do that with hand or stand mixers anyway. I did notice in the warranty it states not to mix for more than 10 min at a time, but I have and have had no issues. I did finish off my cheesecake filling with the balloon whisk a few times and I got a fuller and lighter filling so that was a bonus
This diecast stand mixer lets you blend ingredients to make cakes or dough. It comes with accessories including a beater, dough hook, splash guard and balloon whisk, which seems reasonable for $119.
The stand function makes this mixer more convenient and stable to use than a hand mixer. A 4.6L mixing bowl provides generous space for ingredients, while the 1000 wattage also suggests that this stand mixer is built with a fairly powerful motor.
