Great for everything minus any thick doughs

  • Summary: Great for everything minus any thick doughs. I almost burned my motor up making royal icing. It was smoking and you could smell burning plastic.

The soft start feature is useful in preventing your ingredients from flying out of the ...

Jeff Stanley, Amazon

  • Summary: This mixer has plenty of power but lacks the ability to mix ingredients thoroughly. I was preparing something that had a lot of cream cheese in it and when I dumped the bowl there was a lot of the cream cheese that was not incorporated into the mixture.

Same experience as others...does not hold up even under minimum usage

Mike Swope, Amazon
26 May 2014
  • Summary: We bought our HSM-70 a year ago. Last week, it stops working. The motor does nothing. Doesn't smoke, make noise, spin, grind, smell bad, nothing. Everything else lights up as it should etc, just no action. Contacted Cuisinart, since these have a 3 year warranty.

  • Excerpt: I've been a Cuisinart fan for years and this is one of their great mixers. This Cuisinart Mixer as it can be used both as a handheld mixer and a stand mixer, offering you a great deal of versatility.

Two of these broke on me - wouldn't buy this again if it was the last mixer on Earth.

E. Smith, Amazon
6 April 2014
  • Summary: My husband purchased this for me as a gift when I asked for a stand-up mixer. Obviously, he knew nothing about mixers, otherwise he never would've bought this. The motor is the smallest on the market, which is probably why I had two of these end up blowing on me.

Cuisinart HSM-70 Power Advantage 7-Speed Handheld/Stand Mixer

jlk, Amazon
27 February 2014
  • Summary: I am left with the stand and bowl because this handheld mixer lasted one year with minimal usage before it broke. My old 7 speed Cuisinart Hand Held Mixer lasted 5 yrs. I purchased this handheld/stand mixer because of worsening hand arthritis and I liked the convenience of having both options.

beaters will not hold up

kmccue07, Amazon
6 July 2013
  • Summary: What good is a mixer if the beaters break mixing cookie dough? Thought maybe I had just a flawed beater so bought replacement beaters $10.00. Works fine mixing cake mixes. just as soon as I mixed a batch of cookies the beater broke again.

Joe F., Amazon
26 November 2012
  • Summary: This item was bought as a Christmas gift last year, and it has been used to make numerous cookies, pies, brownies, and cakes. The mixer is detachable so it can be used as a hand mixer if you need to use a larger bowl.

So happy with this mixer.

emom, Amazon
21 August 2012
  • Summary: I have had this now about three years and I still love it. Easy to handle, plenty of power, and versatile. The base and bowl are easy enough to pull out of cubbard. Originally I just wanted a hand held with the option of a base but as it has turned the whole unit is so light weight I use the whole...

17 February 2012
  • Excerpt: My husband was shopping for me for Christmas this year since I love to cook he was in the housewares department and thought that I did not have a standing mixer, so he got me one. The truth is I do have a standing mixer but it is over 20 years old, but is still works just fine.
