Mess Maker

S. Martin, Amazon
3 January 2011
  • Summary: I should have read these reviews before I bought this product. It is true that it has NO low speed, so if you are stuck with one (like I am) make sure whatever you are mixing is in a BIG bowl to contain the inevitable flying material. I'm tempted to open it up and see if I can put in a resistor!

Great hand mixer for the price!

P. Erb, Amazon
26 December 2010
  • Summary: I bought this as a gift for my mother. I only paid $10 - and it is definitely worth it for the price. It worked well. I know other user's reviews says it spits things out when mixing, but in my own experience, most hand mixers do! The only downfall - the eject button is somewhat hard to push - so for someone with arthritis or similar hand issues - this might not be a good gift. Overall - I'm pleasantly pleased with this purchase for the price.

Beaters don't measure up

C. Ward, Amazon

  • Summary: Have used the mixer twice, washed the beaters twice, and the chrome plating is coming off. Will have to buy new beaters, and hope their plating is better.

Not heavy duty

  • Summary: This is an adequate hand mixer, but definitely not heavy duty. It worked fine for eggs and light/liquid work, but burnt out on a cream cheese frosting.

POOR QUALITY

Deb H. "lacie02", Amazon
4 November 2010
  • Summary: This is the 2nd B&D hand mixer for me & IT IS THE LAST! The first mixer was my husbands before we got married, the mixer was in 'new' condition and had very little use........I used it from time-to-time for small jobs..it 'FROZE' up. It had lots of power but seemed to fall over when the beaters were on it causing it to turn on & almost broke my fingers, (this happened several times).

Good for basics, burned out on tougher job

pixilix, Amazon
25 October 2010
  • Summary: I had this mixer for 5 years and was very pleased. It mixed cookie dough, beat eggs and whipped cream like a dream. But I burned it out the other day mixing fondant. Darn. For the basic demands of my kitchen this was a very useful and effective tool. For a price around $10, I may get another, but I know better now than to give it any tougher jobs.

Just a whisk

WR "WR", Amazon
21 October 2010
  • Summary: This mixer has no slow speeds. If all you want to do is beat egg whites and whipping cream, it's fine. But to mix wet and dry ingredients, you'll need another appliance. The slowest speed is so fast that stuff comes flying out of the bowl before it can be blended.

Can't Stand Up

Disgruntled, Amazon
29 September 2010
  • Summary: I hate this poorly designed mixer. The bottom is narrower than the top, so even without any food on the beaters, the mixer topples over every time I set it on the counter. The last time I used it, I went to set it on the counter and it started to topple over. I tried to grab it and accidentally hit the on switch. It threw chocolate cake batter all over me and my kitchen. Even though I had it for only a few months, I've had to go out and buy a new mixer.

One Use Mixer?

Benjamin L. Chirlin "Primus", Amazon
9 September 2010
  • Summary: Bought this on the cheap from KMart to satisfy my cookie craving. Cookies turned out great but the mixer stopped working after the dough started getting thick. Must have burned out. Has lots of power, almost too much, even at lowest setting. If all you need to do is blend light batters, liquids and egg whites this might suit your needs but I've decided to pony up a bit more cash and get a better brand.
