Summary: I got this mixer when I got tired of pulling my stand mixer out for smaller jobs. It's a little difficult to get the mixer connected and removed from the plastic base, but it is really nice to have everything all together. The mixer itself works well.
Pros: This mixer does everything I wanted and more! I love the storage case, so all my beaters and dough hooks are instantly available. No more searching through the junk drawer. It's easy to hold and control, even when mixing heavy cookie dough. I haven't tried bread yet,, but I'm looking forward to it!
Cons: I haven't found any cons yet, although I wish it could be hooked on the edge of a bowl.
Cuisinart does not repair or service its hand mixers

Summary: Buyer beware. If and when your hand mixer dies, Cuisinart does NOT repair them and they do not have any outside service centers to repair them. So you should know that your warranty may be of limited value.
Summary: I had a very old hand mixer that splattered everything I mixed all over the counter. So, I decided on this Cuisinart mainly because of the storage compartment. The attachments and cord fit nicely in the clear bin. As for performance of the mixer, it works great and without splatter.
