It was a good idea to order this as I needed a mixer for my powdered shakes but realized it was not conducive to my needs. I am left handed and this was more right-hand oriented. Fit better and buttons easier to reach using right hand but my right hand does no grip or is not used for these tasks. Very well made and quality workmanship for the right person and task. Needed a whisk attachment but this did not come with it. When mixing powdered drink the powder flew all over the top of the measuring cup and onto the counter. It clumped under the blade and was a mell-of-a-hess to mix anymore. Disappointed and frustrated with its performance and out about $***, I did not return it (too much hassle) but did give it to gal pal for $20. She loves it for gravies and soups and stuff. Prefer Hamilton Beach’s stick mixer over this. Overstock’s shipping was fast and efficient. Love shopping here but not for stick mixers. I bought my stainless deep kitchen sink and several fancy curtain rods here. Very satisfied with those purchases. Hope this review helps someone.
The power of this hand mixer is incredible. You have to use caution because of the suction it creates to the bottom of your bowl. It has a Turbo feature but I haven't had a need to use it because the regular speed is really fast. It's a little on the heavy side for me but it is manageable. I also wish the cord were just a bit longer. Overall, it is a good buy and seems well made and durable.
