Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Gma Great functioning mixer, but faulty stability design.
The mixer itself works very well. It has plenty of power, and the slow-start feature is great, but there is one major flaw in the mixer's design: It does not easily sit upright on the counter when not in use. There is a slightly flattened place on its heel where it is supposed to sit, but I think it should be much flatter and be far more stable when it is resting on the counter. Part of the problem is that the electrical cord rotates so that it is out of the way for right or left-handed users, but it doesn't rotate quite far enough and actually contributes to the instability of the resting mixer. I recommend the mixer, but with reservations.

I needed a hand mixer to replace one that just had no power. America's Test Kitchen gave this a good review so I bought it. Great features. Starts out slow so the flour doesn't fly up in your face BUT you have to hold the mixer out of batter at first. When you first turn it on it goes fast for a second then slows way down. Everything else is great and that is a minor inconvenience. Highly recommend. I have had it a year now.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Claybob After doing extensive online research for a hand held mixer, we zeroed in on this one. Glad we did! Great service, fast ordering, and delivered right on time. The mixer has loads of power for those heavy jobs. The 7 speeds will do anything from mixing flour to those heavy jobs of cookie dough and whipped potato's. It came with a whisk attachment...great for egg whites! Run out and get one...This mixer is GREAT!

We bought this mixer a few weeks ago and I've had it for a little over 3 weeks.
I've had several mixers and this is by far the best.
follow the speed settings in the book and you'd be amazed what it can do on lower speeds.
My cake batter comes out smooth and it goes through cookie dough like a champ.
It's a real workhorse mixer.
I am in love with the Cuisinart mixer.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by linzy Great product!
Very good mixer. One small factor about it - they say it has 3 "low" speeds. Well, even the first speed is very fast, and speed 3 is way too fast. Don't know about speed 4 and up - if 1-3 is considered 'low', I don't want to know what 'high' is. Mixer works effortlessly and evenly though medium-thickness dough. I also love the cream/egg beater that comes with it.

It was a good choice. No batter splattering. Easily shifts from one speed to another. Convenient size; comfortable to use.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Toran Simply the best hand-held mixer.
It is top-rated for a reason; it is the best at what it does. It does not pretend to be a stand mixer, but it handles all chores quite well and at a fraction of the cost. Moreover, it doesn't take up 40 acres of my limited counter space.
