just as a refresher for people who are buying gifts.
the tilt head models cannot be used under cabinets because the head will bump in to the cabinet. They are lighter and can be moved around better so putting them on the counter, then moving them back isn't as bad as it is with the bowl lift varieties. The tilt head models have plastic gears, but are more than durable enough for generations of use. The plastic gears will fail before other more expensive to replace than other parts, so they are "protective". IF it fails, the plastic gears, are cheaper to replace than thw whole motor assembly.

The bowl lift models are heavy they are a bummer to move, but since they can fit under a cabinet, most people just leave them. Besides it impresses visitors. They use all metal gears and generally have higher horse power and more torque
