I bought this mixer the week of thanksgiving to mix batter for cakes. On the fourth cake the motor burned out. The batter was simple and thin so it would not have had to struggle to mix it. It is going back asap!!
What a big pile of junk! Second time I've used this mixer and the thing isnt strong enough to mix a simple buttercream frosting. The mixers keep getting pushed together and seem to mix themselves more than the frosting. So upset right now. Ugh...
First time making cakes with it and motor burnt out. Horrible mixer, didn't even mix properly!
i have gone through 2 of these. when i was making cookies, while adding the flour to the dough, this mixer could not handle the consistency, and burned out and broke. today i am making molasses cookies, and just mixing sugar and butter, it cant handle it. not worth the 10.00 or whatever it costs to buy this piece of junk.
Gears broke and batters no longer spun after less than 2 minutes in medium thick batter on lowest speed ( low = still very fast spin ).
Only cost us $6.00 but would have paid more to avoid the hassle.
Note to Rival: STOP USING PLASTIC PARTS! Grandma's 1940's Sunbeam still going strong.
( Good old metal parts~! )
I have owned 2 of these mixers now and both have failed with the first use. first one the gears stripped out and the second the ON switchs were stuck all the way ON only way to turn off was to unplug. DO NOT BUY THIS MIXER. You get what u pay for with this one.If it seems like a good idea go 1 step up from this and u get a decent mixer.
I read all the bad reviews on this mixer but still bought the mixer just to give it a try. It has been working great for me, I think it is best for cakes/light battered mixing. I just think it should be said that I have been using it for over a month now and I am very pleased with the mixer. Great affordable hand mixer for some of us that can't afford the higher dollar things in life. Thanks Rival!
The beaters jammed into each other freezing up the mixer just trying to do cake batter. Only lasted about 2 months and I only used it 3 times.
The color, size and operation is perfect.
I wish I had read the reviews before purchasing this product. I have had it for a year, but only used it perhaps six times and only to mix eggs and milk for bread pudding. The second time I used it to make something more challenging to the motor, molasses cookies, the motor burned out. I will still try to return it to Walmart. I noticed it is sold out online and is on clearance. Maybe they have had so many complaints that they are discontinuing it. I certainly hope so.
I purchased this mixer during Black Friday last year. While I got a good deal on it, I wish I never would have spent the time and money to get it. The lowest speed is not low at all...it flings food out of my mixing bowl and all over the place. I've had to hold a towel over the bowl while mixing in order to keep everything in. DO NOT waste your money on this piece! I threw mine away after the 3rd use. I would have taken it back, but fighting the crowds isn't worth the $3 I paid for it.
I bake about once or twice a month if that, I haven't even had this for a year and one of the beaters just quit spinning. it would have trouble mixing a simple frosting or the beaters would get out of sink. Totally not worth it. better off buying a used mixer for a 3rd of the price from a thrift store then buy this.
Got this online on Black Friday for three bucks. For the price this is great. We will see how long it lasts. The only problem was I ordered two and was only sent one. When I called, these were no longer being stocked. Customer service promptly gave me a refund for the second unit, so all was good.
donot buy this product thinking u can own a hand mixer for a cheaper price.it burnt for the first time.
Had this for only 4 months. With very little use, beaters kept falling out. Into the trash it went !!!
Horrible little cheap thing. Get what you pay for !
I purchased this mixer during Black Friday last year for an extremely low price. I had low expectations too, after reading all the reviews online for this product, but I still decided to give it a try - because of the price. I am glad that I did, because I was pleasantly surprised! The mixer does its job, I couldn't be happier! Only one issue: sometimes it stops working, but it is because the power goes off; you just have to press the reset button on your power outlet and it's back on. So if you are contemplating to buy this product on Black Friday this year, I'll say give it a try :)
Bought this when they were on sale after Thanksgiving. So price was fantastic. Used it to make a very thick cake batter and it held up where as my former handmixer was killed by it. Lightweight but sturdy and no problems.
Perfect, it does the job. No problems.
this was for my daughter and she liked it
Have used this product twice, once for mashed potatoes on THanksgiving, and once for a thick icing batter. Works great, great value. No problems so far...
