Excerpt: I bought the sleek red KitchenAid 5- Speed Hand Mixer to match my mixer . It looks cute, I love the color, and it has turned out to be a really fantastic addition to my kitchen. I still let my husband do most of the cooking, but I enjoy baking the occasional batch of cookies; and this hand mixer makes it super easy and enjoyable. I love how lightweight this mixer is; but it’s not low quality at all.
Summary: I was really disappointed in this mixer. After using for a couple months, I realized I didn't like the beaters and the speed wasn't as fast as I thought it should be. It just never seemed to mix very well, so I went back to my old Hamilton Beach one that's probably 10 years old. Wouldn't recommend it.
Summary: While the posting may be a bit confusing to some, this mixer is all that's in the box. None of the shown attachments are in the box. Those must be purchased separately. All that aside, the mixer is great. It runs very quietly, makes batter nice and silky smooth, and mashes the taters with ease.
Summary: Well if she approves of it then I am happy. She thinks its nice, very nice so this is fine with me. The kitchen is her domain and she make it clear that she has a standard to keep, this one meets the standard so it's okay all around. IF she didn't like it or something about it this would be going back but she gladly added it to the items she uses all the time. That makes this a Good Purchase!
Summary: I already have the stand mixer and love it, sometimes I wanted something for small jobs that were quick. This hand-mixer does the job. For my needs this mixer has the power I need. For stiff doughs this mixer would be to light, no hand mixers will handle stiff doughs well. If that is the type of mixer you need I suggest a stand mixer. If you whip cream, egg whites, or light doughs this is the mixer you want.
Summary: Originally I bought a 7 speed model but it had the on-off and speed controls in 2 buttons...Very AWKWARD... SO, after all the research I did concerning the differences between the 3, 5, 7 and 9 speed mixers I went back to this 5 speed. I learned the more settings mixers are not more powerful-they just have more slower speeds and the highest speed is the same speed and power on all 4 of them!
Summary: I received the mixer today for an 80th birthday present this Sunday. I specifically ordered this item because it came with the dough hooks and the shake attachment. WRONG! Not included. No way to contact seller because Amazon does the shipping for them. No way to get attachments. Very misleading if not included. The reviews all said they were included. What changed? REMOVE the pictures which include them if they are not part of the purchase!
Summary: Ugh! Bought this in 2010 where it basically sat on a shelf until 2012, then I started using it regularly. Maybe once every ten days. Went to use it last week, it was dead. No flash, no "pop," no last wheezes. And while I'm surprised (in a bad way) at the crappiness of this name-brand appliance -- top of the line when purchased for $100 not that long ago -- I'm really glad to see it go. Good bye, good riddance to this KitchenAid annoyance because: 1. Too heavy!
Summary: My beloved 14 year old, 6-speed KitchenAid hand mixer finally mixed itself to death. My old mixer was digital, so I looked at the 7 and 9 speed KitchenAid hand mixers, but was distressed to see that some may be made in China. I hesitated buying this mixer, because it wasn't digital but, this one is MADE IN THE USA, which is very important to me. I decided to give it a try.
