Good for the money

Mariya Yakobchuk "Flower Girl", Amazon

  • Summary: Worked faithfully in my amateur kitchen for 7 years until a whisk blade burst open while hubby was making his usual eggnog treat... Still - whipped lots of cookies, cakes etc in 7 years.

Good for basics, burned out on tougher job

pixilix, Amazon
27 July 2012
  • 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.

Can't Stand Up

Disgruntled, Amazon
24 April 2012
  • 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
4 November 2011
  • 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.

Bad, bad mixer

Lisa M. "Lisa", Amazon
16 October 2011
  • Summary: I bought this mixer for my son and daughter-in-law. They have the world's smallest apartment, so I thought this tiny mixer would be perfect. NOT! My daughter-in-law asked me today if I still have the receipt. I asked her why, and she said that the mixer starts up at high speed, and that there was cake batter all over her kitchen! The lowest speed does not start slowly.

Black & Decker PowerTHROW is more like it.

gourmetgodess, Amazon
7 January 2011
  • Summary: I received this as a gift. After about a month of owning it, I decided to try it for the first time. I was going to make whipped mashed potatoes. Thats a basic enough dish that we can all remember our grandmothers making in the kitchen. Its total comfort food. Im so excited! So I have the cooked steamy potatoes in the bowl and the warm milk and pats of fresh butter...I pick up my new hand mixer and turn it to setting #1.

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.

Do NOT waste your money

Ana&JonsMom, Amazon
2 April 2010
  • Summary: I used this mixer THREE times. First two times, I had to clean the whole kitchen because like other users have said, there is NO low speed. The third and final time I was mixing cake icing and the beaters quit turning. Oh, the motor still screams it's high speed screech, but the beaters will not turn. Only good thing I can think of is that I purchased it on clearance at K-Mart..for [...] bucks.

no low speed and it falls over

C. Haiser, Amazon
8 March 2010
  • Summary: 60 years after the invention of the hand-held mixer, I am in possession of a brand new one that cannot stand on it's own with the beaters attached. My mother's hand mixer back in the 70's could stand up, and so have several models since, but not this one. It is beyond stupid. Also, like others have said before, it has no low speed.

mixer

Gene Swanson, Amazon

  • Summary: Pleased to see that it was very much like the one that wore out after many years of use. Was received here in record time. Quite surprised at the power it displayed.
