This mixer is extremely powerful, and did a great job with my puddings and cake mixes, especially the thicker mixes. The only drawback is even when it's on the lowest setting I think it's blending too hard and fast. I actually was able to use the lowest setting for most everything I've tried it with so far because it's so powerful. For thinner, more liquid items, it tends to splatter a little more than I like but not enough for me to not use it. Overall I would recommend this product.
