Stand Mixers - American Era?

cowboyardee Dec 27, 2012 12:49 PM

My in-laws are going to buy a stand mixer. Asked me what I thought of the American Era mixer.
http://www.amazon.com/American-Stand-...

Upsides:
- It's cheaper than a KitchenAid
- Lots of power for the money.

It does not seem to have the endless add-ons that a kitchenaid has. This is not a big deal - my in-laws will not be using their stand mixer to make pasta or stuff sausage casings, etc.

So, here's my question: can anyone tell me whether these things are built to last? There are few reviews that I can find. Any thoughts on whether I should recommend or discourage this purchase?
