    What I expected...

    Vowed to never buy another KA product after several problems with 3 out of 4 major appliances I bought from them. But, I had a gift card and this mixer was on sale, looked nice, good reviews, so I caved. Not surprisingly, underwhelmed is my best description, it's adequate at best. It's rated at .6 Amps, which is about 72 watts. My cheapy Toastmaster rates at 120 watts so the KA won't wow you with extraordinary power. The design is nice enough but again, being KA I guess, the decal surrounding the mixer was misplaced and bubbled out right in the front and center. I'll use it for very light hand mixer work and won't be surprised if it burns out after some months of consistent use. If you're looking for a real workhorse hand mixer pass on this, or buy it for the kids to use as their first mixer.

    I love the color and the feel of this mixer. It is easy to assemble and clean. I use my hand mixer for easy household baking (cakes, muffins, frosting, etc) and this is perfect for that. The sound is so much quieter than my old mixer that I had to shut it off and turn it on several times to make sure the beaters were working. . . they were, I was just so surprised it made little noise. It has five speeds and the top speed doesn't go very fast. I haven't tried, but I have doubts about being able to fluff egg whites with this machine. I could just be skeptical because this mixer is so quiet.

    This mixer is amazing! It’s’ very powerful but has a good slow speed too, which many hand mixer don’t. I didn’t have any trouble at all mixing up a batch of stiff cookie dough. I was concerned about the beaters because they didn’t look thick and strong like the ones I’ve used in the past, but they worked great! Also, I found this mixer at a lower price somewhere else and didn’t have any problem getting Best Buy to price match and it arrived promptly. I hope to get many years of good use out of it.

    I had a very inexpensive hand mixer and decided to upgrade. After reading the reviews I choose the Kitchen Aid plus it matched my Kitchen Aid stand mixer. I was surprised at how light the hand mixer felt when I took it out of the box. After the first use, what a difference! It has the power to mix heavier dough and also to whip egg whites. The beaters are east to clean due to the wires not being so close together and batter stays in the pan and not all over the beaters. I am very pleased with my Kitchen Aid hand mixer

    Bought this to replace a very old hand mixer that was not functioning well anymore. I was reluctant at first when I saw the beater. They did not look that sturdy and I was not sure how well they would work. I was very surprised the first time that I used them and found the beaters to work very well. The mixer is fairly quiet compared to my old one. The different speeds work well. I was very surprised how well this hand mixer worked for the price.

    Lightweight, Quiet & Does the Job

    Although this mixer has only 5 speeds, it is quite efficient and does the job. The first time I used it, I whipped up heavy batter with ease. This mixer is capable of all projects for the home kitchen. On its highest setting, the noise is not at all loud; it would be the equivalent of level 2 on a cheaper mixer. This mixer is very light for its output. I love the Turbo beaters because it does not waste a lot of batter when ejected. Overall, this mixer is excellent and very easy to clean. Since this is a Kitchen-Aid product, I know that it is engineered right and will last a long time.

    Attractive, reliable hand mixer

    We have a Kitchenaid Pro 600 stand mixer in our kitchen but often it is more convenient to use a hand mixer for smaller jobs. This KitchenAid 5-speed hand mixer is attractively styled in Onyx black and chrome, which goes well with our kitcen appliances and decor. It is also easy to use and clean up, and takes up much less space than a stand mixer, which might make it a great option for those with smaller kitchens. We still use our 6-quart stand mixer for the larger and heavier jobs like cookie dough, but this hand mixer is great for the lighter work.

    Not So Great

    Bought in Middle of November of 2017 used for the second time on Christmas Eve and it completely shut down in the middle of making dinner for our party and would not work again. No matter what we tried the hand mixer would not turn back on. So Far a waste of $40. Very disappointed in this purchase. Have to contact Best Buy to see what can be done. KitchenAid usually makes a great product however this one seems to be either a lemon or poorly made. That said the color was nice.
