I have been using hand mixers since I learned how to bake. I have always wanted a stand mixer but could never afford the $300-500 that most of the ones most Chefs recommend. I started looking on Amazon and found a whole bunch of stand mixers in the price range I could afford. This American Era is one of them.
My package arrived on time and it was packaged very well, very professional. After reading some reviews on the weight of the mixer, I was still surprised that I could not lift the huge box it was shipped in. The mixer itself weighs alot, but added packing made it heavier. The UPS guy used a hand truck to get it to my door!
I took a few days to unpack it and then a few more to decide what to make. I finally made Blueberry Buckle with Struesel last night. It is a simple batter so this was an easy one. The attachment I used worked great, no issues. The bowl was plenty big for this job and I have no doubt it will be large enough for double, even triple batches. This machine is quite loud. My hand mixer was loud so I wasn’t scared by it, but it is louder then my hand mixer for sure! NOT a deal breaker for me. My Blueberry Buckle came out great! I wasn’t tired from mixing. This made baking SO much easier! It was simple to change out the attachments. There is a dial you turn to turn the mixer upright so you can change them and take the bowl out.
The only thing I might change with this mixer is the bowl. I feel the bowl it comes with is plenty big – but I would like to have a smaller bowl so I could use it for smaller batches. That is the only thing I can think of to make my experience better. This has a 650 watt motor – almost DOUBLE the expensive ones! LOTS of power! It “Only” has 4 speeds – but with 650 watts who needs more!?
All in all – I feel that this is a great stand mixer. If you don’t have one and can’t afford one of the super expensive ones -give this a try – you won’t be disappointed. Definitely worth the price, in my opinion!
