      Hi JanTUB,

      it seems to me this article just doesn't go into enough detail; the article reads like a quick overview from a pamphlet. You write about the mixer's color and show a photo of it sitting on your kitchen counter, but I think more specific information and sharing your experience actually using the mixer would be useful to the reader. For example, show photos of the mixer in action and describe how well it performs different tasks. How is it at kneading bread? Mixing cake batter? Mixing stiff dough? Is it strong enough to cream sugar and cold butter? How does the ice cream attachment work and what does it look like? Is the slowest speed slow enough to mix gently? Is the mixer easy to clean?

      I see that you originally wrote this review several years ago. How has the mixer held up over time? You now have several years of ownership under your belt. Surely there is much more you can add about this mixer's performance, ease of use, pros and cons, etc.

      I would delete the instructions for scones from a mix; it is inconsequential. Also, one of the subheads mentioned something about quilting... ?? It seems out of place.

      I think this article is a good start but would greatly benefit from lots more information.

      Hi Jan,

      I read this last night and instantly recoginised it as a former Squidoo lens. No criticism intended, as I too had lenses there. However, the format and purpose was rather different i.e. to make affiliate sales. The hub is rather thin on actual information and appears to include recipes in order to 'pad' the article out and increase the word count.

      SmartandFun has given you some good advice to follow. You are in an advantageous position as you actually own this product. What has been your experience? Does it lack power? Is it easy to clean? Do you use it regularly or is it sitting on the counter gathering dust? Be honest. Readers will thank you for it and it builds up trust.

      You can also refer to the HubPages Learning Centre. This particular article gives practical advice on improving the quality of your hub.

      All the best!

    At last some useful information on why the hub is not featured. I will need to alter many of my hubs to follow the suggestions you both have made.
    Thank you both for taking the time to write detailed helpful answers.

      Jan, it may help you to read my Hub on the essential rules of HubPages.  I wrote it originally for Squidoo members when the merger happened, and I've kept it updated since.  You'll find it on the slider on my profile.
