From what I've read on it so far, and from finding out what people who own one think about it, It's a pretty good machine.
But K'Aid is also very good, don't get me wrong. Myself and others like SpiceUmUp should know. He has several and I own two.
One person said that it (Elkectrolux) makes very good dense dough, cake and bread batters very well, but for lighter batters such as angel cake, genoise, sponge cake and so forth, the plastic bowl and whisk assembly handles those better - I imagine because air needs to be incorporated into light cake batters to help them rise better.
It's somewhat like K'Aid and others, where you'd use the whip to beat egg whites and whip cream, the dough hook for bread dough and the flat beater or paddle for general-purpose mixing.
And the large 8-qt. SS bowl and dough roller / scraper is designed to handle up to 20-lbs of dough, according to what I read on it. That's a whole 5-lb bag of flour!!
Not that I'd make that much unless I was doing it for something like a party or a breadfest, but it's good to know that I'll have a mixer that has that much raw power!!
And also, this machine is about 1/2 the price of the newest Bosh mixer which looks almost similar to this machine. That one costs about a whopping $999.00!!
And still, the bowl's capacity is only 6 quarts!!
