The design is simple and elegant, yet it also brings retro atmosphere to the kitchen due to its old-school shape. Like the other Kitchenaid mixers; it comes with a bowl. The bowl can be placed tightly on its place to support steady whisking and kneading.
The bowl itself is made of brushed stainless steel and it has no handle on it. Even so, the bowl can hold up to 3.3 liters and it can help the mini mixer to mix 8 egg whites and 680 grams of all-purpose flour.
The hub can also be removed so it can be replaced with the attachment parts like fruit slicer or pasta cutter. This mixer also comes with a mini coated dough hook, a mini flat beater, and a mini wire whisk. It is indeed small, yet it has powerful output of 250 watts.
If you have never bought the regular ones, then this mixer is worth the shot. But if you have, then you may see some disadvantages right away which is the bowl. It has no measurement marks and there is no handle attached on the bowl.
The measurement marks are important to measure the amount of water or dough that needs to be put in while the handle is needed to grab the bowl so it will be comfortable to move the bowl around. Also, the beater, hook, and whisk are small. It would be rather tricky if you need replacements due to its size; you cannot replace with the regular ones.

The bowl and the mixer tool size are the only disadvantages of this mixer. Yet, this mixer is surely an excellent choice for your baking experience.
