Summary: I almost didn't buy this due to all the bad customer reviews. I'm glad I read them before I bought, though. They made me careful to insert and eject the beaters carefully. I'm also careful to begin beating at the lowest speed. That said, this was a very good purchase for me.

Summary: I wish I had read the reviews before I bought this mixer (at Bed Bath & Beyond). It looks great on the surface, with the nice container to hold all the tools. But right off the bat I had the problem everyone here is having- even at low speed this mixer throws all the ingredients out of the bowl and...
Summary: Very good mixer that won't break bank. I have used it 5x to make royal icing which is pretty dense. I have not found another hand mixer that has 300 watts of power and strong coated paddles to prevent batter and icing from sticking; it also won't scratch bowls.
There are a couple of things I really like about this hand mixer...

Summary: 1. The under mixer storage bin for all the accessories is nice because it keeps everything together, but doesn't take up a ton of room. It was a little hard to snap on at first, but has gotten easier with use. Or I've gotten better at it. 2.
Summary: Very, very, very bad smell from this mixer. I have had it over three months and it still smells the same with the same intensity. It smells like metal and chemicals, it is extremely distasteful and sours the whole baking or cooking experience.
Summary: Loved it, but it lasted less than a year. A ring fell out where the beater is inserted and you could no longer keep the beater in. Very disappointing. Other than that it worked well and I loved the container.
