Summary: I used this mixer to make 50 cupcakes, a half sheet, a three tier wedding cake and 2 double batches of frosting all in the last 2 days. I'm so glad I got this mixer. The paddles were long enough to mix in my huge bowl.
Summary: This is the perfect hand mixer...lots of power for everything. It's easy to turn off/on, eject, and select power needed. The weight is fine. I love the pink color....unusual for me, but it's fun to open the drawer and see that little thing sitting there.
Summary: After just a little over 4 years, the mixer is now failing to turn on. I suspect a bad button panel. The mixer has not seen heavy use, so I am disappointed in the service life. I had purchased one before this one, and it seemed to work better, smoother startup.
Summary: Have just used it once to bake a cake but these flimsy-looking beaters are strong! Looking forward to lots more mixing. And can pink retro make cooling/baking any more fun?! If it continues to perform well I will come back and change to 5 stars.
Looks and works great - never smells like it's on fire!

Summary: Very powerful for a small mixer that seems like it would be delicate. I read a lot of reviews and bought the one that had a high rating and looked like a spaceship (albeit a pink one). It is so much better than the old ones I have burned burned up.

Summary: The slow start does take off a bit quick but it is not a problem for me. The push button speed adjustment on the top is a bit awkward as mentioned, but I'm sure I will get used to since I have am used to the sliding adjustment from my old cheap 5 speed mixer that I had for 10 years.
Buy this! You'll love it way more then your in-laws!

Summary: I freaking LOVE this mixer! I already told my husband that if we get a divorce, this is mine. Of course, pretty much everything in the kitchen is mine because prior to me he could only cook by driving to Chipotle. I use it twice a day.
