Not the high quality one would expect from the KitchenAid brand name.

Summary: Definitely not the quality I'm used to when buying a KitchenAid brand item. This mixer has three speeds. Unfortunately, they are slow, slower, and slowest. Even the top speed is barely strong enough to make mashed potatoes! For nearly $40, I expected much more than this. Very disappointed.
Highest speed is equal to the lowest speed on my old mixer- just doesn't cut it.

Summary: I bought this few months ago, after my original Kitchenaid hand mixer I received for a bridal shower gift 11 years ago finally stopped working. Boy, am I disappointed. It can barely get through mashed potatoes or a simple cake mix, even on the highest setting.
Summary: After the warranty expired the beaters started to fall out. Kitchen Aid said sorry out of warranty. Prior to the blades falling out this was a wonderful mixer. It really should last longer than a couple years. I bought a replacement at an estate sale. I would guess it was 30 years old.
Summary: My daughter received this from us this year. She loves it her new mixer, and I love the Wish List so we don't have to go through returns after Christmas. She loves to bake so this mixer is already well broken in and my daughter is satisfied with everything about this mixer.
