on April 22, 2016
I took a risk purchasing this as I need a portable mixer, and reviews on amazon are very mixed about all of these handheld mixers. I settled on this one because it has a slow start feature and a high wattage power capability. And guess what? It has not disappointed me at all and I'm so glad I took a chance on it! Maybe some of the negative reviews were faulty models, or maybe those customers don't know how to use one of these properly? I don't know, but I couldn't be happier with mine - it starts up slowly, and hasn't made a plattery mess once so far, and I've mixed liquidy waffle and pancake batters almost every day with it since I got it. It really gets my batters homogenized very quickly! My eggs get beaten so nice and fluffy with it, that it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy when I think of how this little gadget has saved my wrists (I have tendonitis in my wrists). I doubt this review will help anyone since there are so many reviews already, but I guess my advice would be that you just try this one or one of the others out if you have prime shipping and free returns, and as soon as you get it in the mail, just attach the beaters real quick, plug the mixer in, and turn it on (lowest setting first, then run it through higher settings just to be sure). If you just try it out right away without getting it dirty, and make sure that it works, then you will make sure that you don't get one of the lemons that those negative reviews are complaining about. I did that, and once I was sure that it worked, I cleaned and soaped off all of the attachments to get manufacturing residues or germs off, and then I was ready to start mixing for real with it, and it has helped me make some very tasty treats in way less time and less wrist pain! Happy mixing!
