These do not last.

Excerpt: I got one of these mixers as a gift for Christmas and was excited because I really wanted a new hand mixer for small projects so I would not have to get out my big stand mixer. I opened it up and plugged it in and turned it on and it started for two seconds, sparked, and stopped working.
Excerpt: I just got it a couple weeks ago as an early Christmas present. It is super easy to use. I love the multiple settings, but the low speed is not very slow. The high speeds are great. It whips potatoes in minutes.
Excerpt: I purchase the Black & Decker PowerPro Mixer a couple of years ago on Black Friday for about ten bucks to replace an acient sunbeam mixer that I got from my mother.Mixing PerformanceThe Black & Decker PowerPro Mixer was great for mixing anything and everything.
Excerpt: I purchased the Black & Decker PowerPro Mixer when I was baking cakes and pies for my nephews and the holidays. This mixer is reasonably priced (fairly cheap actually). However, the quality seems a little lacking, but I guess you get what you pay for in this situation.
Excerpt: Okay, the mixer does sound like a power tool, but it works like one, too. I have made many a cheesecake with this mixer (and a whole lot of other stuff). It really is a power tool for the kitchen. It's easy to use, sturdy, and easy to clean and reasonably priced.
Excerpt: I have used a Black and Decker hand mixer for all of my adult life (20 years). It has been the best and only mixer I have ever used. I have used this mixer for mashing potatoes, mixing pudding, and various other ingredients for cooking.
Excerpt: I think that a hand mixer is an easy clean up item. I use this gadget every time I bake anything. It saves a lot of room, for other gadgets, and come handy when you don't have enough room for a big mixer while cooking.
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.
Summary: My wife wanted a mixer to mix cake batter and make whipped cream...works like a charm (and be like the mixer that just burned out) lack of a really low speed isn't a problem as I have another mixer for dough hooks (Hamilton-beach) Jim
