This mixer works fine. I bought another used mixer for friend and I think I fell in a trap as it is 13 year old mixer. The sliver ring on the base where the whisk goes is also missing. We see exposed screws under it and the whisk is bent. At the time I was buying it, I didn't notice it. I haven't test it yet though. But the bowl also has scratch marks on the inside bottom radius from when the whisk moves.
