It's sturdy

well built - I'm a bit dubious about the whisk storage - seems a tight fit
johnlewis.com
A good reliable machine
Argos.co.uk

NOT RELIABLE

The fixings appear to have been a miniscule weld that has broken away
amazon.co.uk
the only reason it's not 5 stars is because the button to lift up the beaters from the bowl is very stiff so just slightly lacking on build quality
Argos.co.uk
this is just not robust enough to knead dough for bread making which is the main reason I purchased it
ao.com
Mediocre Build Quality
