Summary: This Cuisinart mixer works fantastic. My daughter bakes a lot and it works perfect for her. I bought this because Cuisinart has a great reputation and I own other products made by them. I like the fact that this is small but powerful and has all the attachments we need. I would definitely would recommend this to other people.
GREAT DEAL!!! EVERYONE WHO LIKES COOKING MUST GET ONE

Summary: Great buy! Just what I expected. I bake as a hobby frequently, and I was using an old and regular hand mixer. Getting this appliance was a great decision, it makes everything easier and faster. Having the chance to use it as well as a hand mixer, works great for me.
Summary: Item being reviewed Cuisinart HSM-70 Power Advantage Hand/Stand Mixer I am very pleased with my new "hand mixer". It is light weight, very efficient, easy to clean, and quiet. I'd recommend this to everyone. Also, it is reasonably priced and gets the job done. In other words, I like my new appliance very much.
Summary: I've used this exactly once, have had it for a month. I hand washed all of it when I was done and thought I dried it well, but the beaters have rusted up at the top where they go in the mixer and down at the bottom where the rivet is that holds the beaters together. Threw the box away after I had tested it to see if it worked, so Ill keep it, but mixing rust into my food isn't good.
Summary: gave this to my wife for mother's day, stop thinking it, she asked for a stand mixer. she absolutely loves it, her other one was metal that was given to her by her mom years ago and it was good, but this new one is fast powerfull, and has the atachments she wanted.
Hand mixer converted to stand mixer and works okay

Summary: It's no stand mixer. I've used it so far to make pizza dough, pretzel dough and cupcakes. it's worked alright for me. I do like the stainless steel bowl that comes with this mixer but otherwise it's not as powerful as I'd like.
Summary: I don't usually like to give negative comments on things and only do so when they are truly deserved. This mixer is useless as a stand mixer. I bake A LOT and am not able to use this a s a stand mixer when I am making any recipe other than something with the consistency of water. If you are going to let this mixer sit and gather dust in a cabinet then it can't do you any harm. If, however, you are actually looking for a mixer that you can use don't buy this one.
Summary: I was all ready to love this mixer. But the very first time I used it (making a small batch of cake frosting) the motor shorted out. I'm returning it tomorrow. Even if that hadn't happened, I wouldn't be wild about the mixer. It's not at all comparable to a good (expensive) stand mixer like a KitchenAid. It's really just a not-very-powerful hand mixer suspended over a bowl. It requires lots of scraping and fiddling to get ingredients properly mixed.
