However the dough hook and beater for ours are metal -- the ones being sold tonight look like they're plastic. So far it appears to be a good product -- certainly feels solidly built, and it works as advertised.
They're not plastic, they're enamel coated steel. I have the green model of this mixer and it's great!!
I didn't fully understand how amazing it was until I needed to grab something for a recipe while I was using it. The best part of a stand mixer is that it keeps mixing even if you have to step away briefly.
The optional attachments are great too. Make your own burgers with the grinder!!
FINALLY GOT A Bucket of Candycorn ON 9/22/10!
