Adequate

Timothy M., Newegg
22 February 2015
  • Pros: Small. Light. Simple. Effective. Very inexpensive. Easily fits into a kitchen drawer for storing. Simple design uses a downward press of the thumb on the variable speed wheel, to release the two (40% undersized from standard) beaters from their sockets. Easy to operate. Better than hand mixing; a...
  • Cons: Smaller than standard, and resultantly, should not be relied on, to a good job with mixtures heavier than frosting for a cake. or pancake batter or something similar. Heavier loads cause it to get warm, and smell like something is burning. Otherwise it is adequate. For heavier mixing jobs, a heav...

Great little mixer

John D., Newegg
17 January 2015
  • Pros: Very cheap, got for only $5 after sale and promo code Has held up very well against hours if not full days of use mixing drinks with ice

the seller was great and so was the price

  • Summary: Just used my hand mixer yesterday to make banana bread and I really thought it worked well. The lowest speed was still a little too powerful for me at times but it wasn't anything to get really bothered over.

It's not the most powerful but it works

Joel C Konopa, Amazon
5 January 2015
  • Summary: It would not mix a large amount of a very thick cookie batter. It slowed down to nearly nothing. On drills you go slower and the torque goes up, no so much with this. I don't know if it should be expected to complete this or if a stand mixer is really needed. Maybe I'll try a beater in a drill...

I my mixer was tougher it would still be alive today.

Nicholas P Herman, Amazon
4 January 2015
  • Summary: This mixer died by my hand the first time it was ever used. Straight out of the box I put it straight to work making cookies. As I added flour, thickening the dough, 62507 visibly and audibly began to struggle.

absolute garbage. not worth $1!

3 January 2015
  • Summary: I wasn't expecting much, but this mixer was 100% useless. I rarely use a mixer, so I just wanted it for that random occasion. First use, all of the speed levels were really slight variations of "high". The lowest it would go was too fast for many applications.

Poor Speed Control

Tinkering Turtle, Amazon
1 January 2015
  • Summary: The slowest speed of this mixer is just far too fast. There's not very much of a difference between the slowest and highest speeds, making this mixer terrible for using in smaller bowls with a lot of dry ingredients. The beaters are very cheap but they did survive the wish washer so that's a plus.
