I love this product! Too many times I have had to toss a cheap hand mixer but this one does the job and quietly I might add. I love the case that it comes with for storage too.
Rated 4 out of 5 by thecaker Nice and quiet
I recently purchased this product and have made a number of cakes with it.I am very pleased with my purchase. It is quiet and easy to control. The first setting is a slow speed and it really is a slow speed. I would prefer a digital readout but for the price it is a good hand mixer. I bake fairly regularly so it will be interesting to see how it holds up.

great mixer. both dough hooks will attach to the mixer and have used already for bread and pizza crust.
Rated 1 out of 5 by hhgperson Terrible product
First of all, this mixer does not have a slow start. It spins way too fast even in low speed and throws everything all over the kitchen. I can't imagine what it does on high speed. I'm afraid to try for fear the thing will start flying around the kitchen. Secondly only one of the so-called bread hooks even fits in the mixer so forget about being able to knead bread with it. Apparently manufacturers now think that speed is what is required to mix ingredients when in actuality it's power because this is the second mixer I've bought that mixes way too fast.

This is a great mixer but I am giving up on it after exchanging it twice. With all three mixers I have had to stop using because the tips of the beaters begin to rust after about a month of use. The finish on them is terrible and wears off very quickly. It is so frustrating because I finally found the mixer I like but can't use for long.
Rated 3 out of 5 by MountAiry Follow the Instructions
I owned this mixer for 9 months and mainly used it to make occassional batches of pizza dough using its dough hooks. I had always given the motor rests by letting the motor run at high speed, without kneading, to let the internal fan cool the motor coils. During my last dough mixing, I ran the motor on low speed #1 for 8 minutes [per a new recipe instruction] and the motor burned and stopped. I read the mixer directions: when using dough hooks, run between speeds 3 and 6 and no more than 5 minutes at a stretch. It's a decent mixer, but you must follow those instructions to the letter. You might also want to buy Walmart's extra warranty package with this unit. Also, it seems a little bit expensive compared to its competition.
Rated 3 out of 5 by blueangel0320 Not what I expected
I put this mixer on my wedding registry because my mom has a GE hand mixer that she has had for YEARS and I was never able to burn up :-). To me, that meant a GE mixer could meet my backing needs for the long haul which is what I wanted. SO, I received this mixer in May as a wedding present, but didn't start using it until after our June 24 wedding. I have used it maybe between 10 & 20 times (sorry, that's vague. I bake a lot, but I also have a KitchenAid stand mixer, so I generally use this for smaller jobs#. It's still basically brand new. It looks brand new, but the beaters are coming apart. Two of the metal prongs have come out of the hole at the bottom of each beater. I asked my husband if he could fix it, but he couldn't :-(
