Summary: I was looking for a commercial grade mixer for some time. I must be unusually hard on them. I know people that have their mixers for years and I go thru about one a year. I have a large family and cook in volume. The size of the mixing blades is "hardy", I'm glad.
Summary: Nice, powerful hand held mixer that can handle any task! Great quality mixer that looks like it will last! Now, I don't have to pull out my heavy, deluxe countertop Kitchenaid mixer for everyday recipes. I also like the retractable cord feature.
Pros: powerful, three different attachments, retractable cord
Summary: it has power but with that comes the downside of being loud. It has a high pitch shrill to it. I had purchased a different hand mixer and it was very quiet but it didn't have the power..I guess it must be a trade off. I will keep it.
Summary: Hand mixers typically range from wimpy to really wimpy. If you want real mixing action you go to the Kitchen Aid stand mixer. Alas, not every mixing job needs an outboard motor. They do, however, need an effective mixer for small jobs. The Duralit is actually pretty amazing.
Summary: Don't waste your money on the little cheap hand helds like I did. This one really takes the abuse. Very powerful. Doesn't get bogged down when your mixing up thick batter. We have been very pleased with it.
Summary: I was very excited upon recieving this product. It had a great look to it and the weight was impressive--it seemed like the industrial/commercial-type hand mixer I was looking for. Unfortunately, with use, I was quickly disappointed by the power (too much) that it had at the lowest speeds.
Pros: great look, impressive power/speed
Cons: way too much power/speed at the low end, no nice slow initial setting
