HOWORK SM-1522NM is a stand mixer with 660 watt motor and 8.5-quart mixing bowl. It’s more affordable than KitchenAid models but is it a worthy alternative?
HOWORK SM-1522NM works reasonably well for the most part but it’s not as good as KitchenAid models. It has 6 speed settings + pulse mode.
The motor is powerful and can handle stiff and hard doughs. The issue is that attachments don’t cover the sides and the very bottom of the bowl so some of the stuff remains unmixed. You will have to stop and scrape to make sure everything is mixed properly. HOWORK SM-1522NM is also a bit loud but to be fair almost all stand mixers are.
Overall HOWORK SM-1522NM works quite well for its price. It’s not perfect but it gets the job done.
The overall build quality is good. Again, it doesn’t feel as sturdy and well made as KitchenAid but for the money the quality is adequate.
HOWORK SM-1522NM comes with dough hook, beater and whisk. Dough hook and beater have Teflon nonstick coating applied to them. According to manual they are not dishwasher safe.
HOWORK SM-1522NM features Tilt-head design and suction cups that have really good suction power and keep the stand mixer stay put.
For the money HOWORK SM-1522NM is a good stand mixer however don’t expect it to be as good as KitchenAid models. KitchenAid KSM150PS Artisan or KitchenAid 6 Qt. Professional 600 Series are more effective and sturdier but they are more expensive. If you want to save money then HOWORK SM-1522NM can be a viable alternative however long-term KitchenAid stand mixers might turn out to be cheaper as they will likely last a lot longer.
