HOWORK SM-1520Z is a stand mixer with 660 watt motor and 8.45 quart mixing bowl.
Even though the motor is quite powerful in some cases it might struggle like when you mix larger batches especially if the dough is stiff. With that being said for most jobs motor is powerful enough. HOWORK stand mixer perhaps could have more than 6 speed settings to offer more variety of speeds but it’s not really an issue.
So how well does it mix? Unsurprisingly, not as well as higher-end models like KitchenAid KSM7581.
The main flaw seems to be that attachments don’t get as close to the bottom and sides as you would like. This causes some of the stuff remaining unmixed which you then have to scrape.
Another flaw which is perhaps not so significant but can be an inconvenience in certain situations is that instructions state that you shouldn’t let this stand mixer run for more than 10 minutes continuously after which you have to give it some time to rest and cool down.
At the end of the day HOWORK SM-1520Z does the job however with some inconveniences that you don’t have to suffer through with high-end models.
Overall quality of the stand mixer and attachments is mediocre. Neither feels as well made as you get with KitchenAid but that’s certainly expected at this price tag.
Comes with dough hook, beater and whisk attachments. It also comes with accessories like egg white separator, splash proof cover and scraper.
HOWORK 8.45-quart stand mixer has suction cups to help it stay put. All of the attachments have Teflon coating. Mixing bowl is made of stainless steel and has two handles.
You get what you pay for. HOWORK SM-1520Z is nowhere near as good as KitchenAid 7-Quart stand mixer but neither is it so expensive. For the money performance and overall quality is adequate but keep in mind that this is really considered a budget priced stand mixer. It will do the job but not as well as KitchenAid and probably will have shorter lifetime too.
