Oster 6-Speed 250-Watt Hand Mixer
Let your creativity soar with this fully equipped Oster hand mixer. A true kitchen companion, the hardworking mixer delivers the strength and versatility needed to tackle all those mixing tasks--from a slew of Christmas cookies to lemon meringue pie. Homemade bread dough? Yep, it's got you covered there, too.
6 Speeds, Plus Burst of Power
The 250-watt mixer provides a powerful 2.1 amp motor and six settings for variable speed, from low to high, depending on the job at hand. It also offers a Burst of Power button, which delivers an extra dose of get-it-done, particularly useful when mixing through thicker batter and doughs. The speed-setting dial on the top of the handle ensures easy thumb-activated accessibility, plus it doubles as a one-touch beater-eject button.
Slower Low Speed for a Clean Start
A slow, easy start can make all the difference between a neatly mixed batter and cookie-dough splatters all over the walls, not to mention a thin layer of flour covering the cabinets and countertops. Thoughtfully designed, the Oster mixer provides a slower low speed for greater control and mess-free mixing--from beginning to end.
Tools for Versatility
Enjoy oodles of options with the three attachments--beaters, whisk, and dough hooks--that come with this dreamy unit.
The beaters quickly and thoroughly mix all types of batters, including pancake, brownie, and cake batter, while the whisk works wonders on beating air into mixtures like egg whites, yolks, or cream for creating meringue cookies, hollandaise sauce, or whipped cream for dolloping onto slices of pie.
Thick mixtures and heavy dough are no match for this handheld mixing machine, either. Simply secure the dough hooks, and you're ready to knead dough for bread, pizza, and pastries. The hooks also work really well for kneading ground beef when making mom's amazing meatloaf. The possibilities are practically endless.
The mixer's soft-touch handle provides a smooth, ergonomic design to ensure stability in the hand and comfort during marathon mixing sessions. A rubberized heel and bowl rest improve stability when setting the mixer down on the counter to add ingredients or to pull baked goods out of the oven (or to take a cookie break).
When finished, the beaters, whisk, and dough hooks clean up easily by hand or in the dishwasher, and the mixer and the cord can be cleaned with a damp cloth then dried completely.
Sleek, Innovative Design
The hand mixer comes in both black (model 2577) and white (model 2534), each with the Oster logo and a chromed or stainless-steel hubcap for timeless good looks.
A thoughtful gift idea for newlyweds or anyone setting up a first-time kitchen, the Oster 6-speed retractable-cord hand mixer will surely inspire those who love to entertain or for any baking enthusiast--serious or just starting out.

Top Customer Reviews
You need a ton of egg whites whipped to a rather stiff consistency and my little hand held egg beater got the job done, but it took a while. This gizmo whizzed through the egg whites so quickly, I had not finished eating the jar of fig preserves I was thinking about using for a filling. So far so good.
Anyway, this morning I rose early and made a batch of bread...the bread hook attachment is a thing of beauty and a joy until I lose it. I usually do all the mixing and kneading by hand and my wrists ache for a day after making a couple of loaves. I am going to bake more often because of those little doohickeys.
Those are the good points. The bad ones? Some reviewers mentioned that there is no difference between low and high settings, and this is somewhat true. Low is more like High on most mixers. Talk about enhanced performance. I wanted to ask if it had been hanging out with Lance Armstrong.
If you are making something liquid, it does send up a bit of spray because the blades move at such a high speed. I knew this and used a deep bowl for the chocolate ganache filling I used in the macarons, but there are still little blobs of chocolate on the kitchen curtains and the cats. Something soupier or more liquid would probably make a bigger mess, so be forewarned. This is a particular problem for me because I always make a mess when I cook. After I make blueberry pie, the cats, sink and microwave are usually a pretty purple color that doesn't wash out for a couple of weeks. I don't need an appliance that adds to the chaos.
One reviewer appreciated the 'heft.' I didnt catch the name, but it was either Mr. Universe or our ex-Governor Schwarzenneger. I'm not weakling, but do find the mixer a little on the heavy side. I kept changing hands because once you start beating eggs, you really can't stop. And while the bread hooks made kneading much, much easier, it was still hard work just clinging to the mixer. It felt like I was holding a bucking bronco at one point. The handle is ergonomic, which is fancy talk for padded. It helps, but it's still heavy. Another reviewer mentioned that the retractable cord was too short. I don't find it short at all. Unless you are planning to stroll to downtown Yemen while mixing up your pancake batter, the cord is plenty long.
The "Inspire" also comes comes with a whisk, which I have not tried, and a spatula for for folding ingredients into one another. Since folding is generally a delicate process, I don't know if this overpowered machine is appropriate. I think it might bring too much muscle to the job.
And finally, the 'eject' mechanism doesn't work very well. It's not a button it's just a spot with a plastic label on it. I pressed, jabbed, poked, prodded and jammed my finger on the spot to no avail. Even my usual 'go to' method of fixing anything broken or stuck, which is whacking it against the side of the refrigerator, didn't help. When you are in a frenzy to lick the chocolate off the beaters, this can be a major problem. I thought maybe this was just a one off thing because the mixer was new, so I put the beaters back in and, sure enough, had the same problem again. You just have to keep pushing and hope for the best.
So, for the money, not a bad mixer as long as you know where the problems are and compensate for them. Just take a deep breath before trying to get the attachments to eject. And NEVER EVER become so impatient that you lick the beaters before removing them from the machine. I still have a slight lisp.
