Summary: My father lost his eye sight five years ago. In that five years, he has taken up baking. I was getting tired of cleaning up the ceiling (from him pulling out the mixer with "stuff" on the blades causing batter to go everywhere! This mixer solves that problem, but more important - the mixer is easy to use and cleans up with little effort. The control buttons are in a location that he can "feel" and knows exactly what speed he is using.
Summary: Length:: 0:15 Mins I just received the Hamilton Beach Stand Mixer. It boasts that the machine has 400 watts of power to it and when I made 2 batches of bread dough, the machine looked like it was about to fizzle out. While it did knead the dough to where I wanted it to be, the motor emitted a burnt smell (maybe since its a new machine, i don't know) but it looked like it was going to stall out any minute when kneading.
Summary: This machine works great we have had it since January it does everything it supposed to do and beyond we make bread almost every other day and doesn't wobble doesn't slap around it's very sturdy
Summary: This mixer made it possible for me to finally make a decent loaf of bread. The dough hook eliminates all hand kneading. The paddle blade whips up no-lump creamy mashed potatoes and the wire whip turns heavy cream into a great batch of whipped cream and more. Continue whipping that cream as the buttermilk separates and the solids collect as homemade butter---just mix in salt to taste after straining out the buttermilk for a different baking use.
Summary: I bought this mixer as the floor model from Sam's Club, at a great price. It was missing the pouring shield, and the instruction book. I've been very pleased with it's performance, and don't feel at all like I sold out my dream of a Kitchenaid 5 plus 5. I'm most impressed with their customer service.
Broke in less than a year with very light use maybe 8 times

Summary: My best half loves to bake cakes for family for birthdays. I bought this mixer for her Christmas 2012. When she was making frosting for her sons 30th bd party this month. The beaters quit turning. Hamilton Beach dose honor the 3 year warranty. All I needed was a proof of purchase, Thank you Amazon for keeping a record of everything you buy. Printed out the sales order Kathy Called HB. The lady she spoke with was in the USA.
Summary: I'm impressed. I guess for the price I shouldn't be but I have to admit, this is one nice mixer. Heavy duty. Quiet. Very attractive. I think the only "con" would be the weight. It is VERY heavy. Don't expect to easily move it around your kitchen. This machine needs to be placed in one spot where you can get to it easily and leave it there. The splatter guard is a super nice accessory.
