I love this mixer! I don't do a lot of baking, so this is the most affordable and reasonable option for all of the handheld mixers out there! It's very simple to use with only 3 speeds. However, just because it has 3 speeds does not mean that this is the cheapest mixer out there. This company is very reliable and the mixer is very durable.

Mixing Performance
Although I don't think it can mix thoroughly heavy dough, it sure can mix regular dough and cake mixes. I use this all the time to whip up my whipped cream or cake batter and I find that this simple mixer does the job perfectly fine. I've had this for about 3 years and it's still going strong.

Ease of Cleaning
There are only two things to clean of the mixer: the two whisk hands. The top part, obviously, you don't need to clean because it contains the chord. The whisks are not complicated in design so they're really easy and quick to clean.

Ease of Use
As stated above, I use this all the time to make cookies, cakes, and muffins, and I love it. I have given several to my relatives and they all love it as well! No one in my family is an exceptional, hard-core baker, so we have all found that this simple, 3-speed mixer is the perfect mixer for us!

Design
This has a very simple design and I like it like that because it makes it simpler to use. The whisk hands are long enough for the top part to hang off the side of a bowl so the whole apparatus won't fall into the bowl. The clean colors also contribute to the good-looking design of this mixer.

Durability
I have had this mixer for the past 3 years and I love it! The durability of this mixer is exceptional and I recommend this product to every type of baker out there! none of the parts have broken yet and I don't think any of the parts will, for that matter. The plastic is very strong and does not stain.

This little mixer, the Kitchen Aid 3 speed mixer, is enough to get the basic jobs done. This mixer is small enough to store away in a drawer or cabinet, yet big enough to handle your basic mixing needs.

I personally like this one because it is small and basic.

Kitchen Aid has had its moments but over all is a good brand that you can trust and can afford. This mixer would make a good house warming or "any other reason" gift. Every Kitchen should have one of these basic mixers.

Mixing Performance
I would not recommend this mixer for the avid baker, or even someone that needs a mixer often for larger mixing needs. Also, not the best for jobs with thick batter or frosting, etc. This is a basic needs mixer.

Ease of Cleaning
This mixer is easy to clean, as you just need to wipe it down and then release the attachments to throw in with your other dishes.

Ease of Use
Very easy to use. I am just an average cook/baker therefore I do not need a huge mixer that takes up an entire counter alone.

Design
The design is very basic and what you would expect from a mixer. I have had this mixer for several years and it's still going strong. I have never had any issues with this mixer so I can not attest to their customer service.

Durability
This small mixer has been durable and strong. But like I said, this is for the smaller, more basic jobs.

Powerful mixing abilities, but difficult for small hands.

By 

from USA

Comments about KitchenAid 3-Speed Hand Mixer:

KitchenAid has always been and still is my favorite brand for purchasing kitchen appliances like this mixer. I am always rewarded with great-quality items that last me a long time, with little to no functionality problems. This mixer was no exception. Although I had a standing mixer already, I decided to buy a hand mixer as well, and this was one of them that I tried. I liked how this was more portable and fit better to various bowls and situations. It was also extremely powerful, being able to mix whatever I put it up against, no problem. It really performed well and was even easy to clean and take apart. The only negative that I can point out is that this appliance was not meant for small hands. Compared to most, I have relatively tiny hands, and the power of this machine coupled with its rather wide handle made it slightly challenging to hold and operate. Regardless of this point, I have learned to cope with it and have kept the machine, using it on lots of baking activities. I have recently used it to make a batch of snickerdoodles, which turned out scrumptious!

Quick Fix Mixture

By 

from USA

Comments about KitchenAid 3-Speed Hand Mixer:

It is time saving and very efficient.

Mixing Performance
I have mostly use it to prepare dough for cakes, and for drop scones.It mixes up all the flour into the dough and the end result is a smooth finish that add results to my baking. Now that am a mother i just like the way it helps me save so much time and energy, i realized it helps me out in the preparation of my 7 months old baby's food. I use it to mix up boiled potatoes, butternut and pumpkin. I now take very little time and baby's food is ready.

Ease of Cleaning
The gliding and smooth surface makes it easy to clean. But what i like most is that i can remove the beater and disinfect them before using them for my baby's food.

Ease of Use
On my first day i just had to read the manual and carefully insert the beaters. I switch it on tried the different mixing speed and that was very easy.

Design
Th design is okay its very easy to store because it doesn't take so much space in the kitchen.

Durability
My mum gave me this mixture after using it since i was 24yrs (now am 31yrs). I have also used it for 3yrs now and so far there has been no problem or damage on it.

Mixer that Don't MIx

By 

from Grand Rapids, MI

Comments about KitchenAid 3-Speed Hand Mixer:

I bought this after my other older hand mixer died. I was really hoping that it can do alot of mixing. I is resonably priced, but if you do a lot of baking especially cooking alot of bread I wouldn't recommand it. I only had it for six months and it fell apart. It got really hot and then it just stopped working. I love the style and the handle grip.

Excellent hand mixer

By 

from Williamsburg, VA

Comments about KitchenAid 3-Speed Hand Mixer:

This is an excellent hand mixer. It mixes very well and quickly. This is perfect for a quick cake or brownie mix. It does not leave any lumps left in the mix. It is pretty easy to clean. The mix come off very easy if you allow to sit for a few minutes in hot water. It is very easy to use. Just pop the pieces in, plug it in and go. It has a variety of speeds to different mixing preferences. The kitchenaid hand mixer is very durable and I have not had any problems with any rusting or bending.

L-O-V-E my hand mixer!

By 

from Chicago, IL

Comments about KitchenAid 3-Speed Hand Mixer:

I absolutely love my Kitchen Aid hand mixer! I use it heavily during the holidays, as sometimes my stand mixer bowl is dirty, or full (in the fridge to cool dough). This does the trick without having to hurry to clean my stand mixer bowl. Super powerful, but oh-so-easy to use!

Durability
I've had my hand mixer for over 7 years, and it's working like brand new still!

Mixer to help in all aspects of cooking and baking

By 

from Neptune, NJ

Comments about KitchenAid 3-Speed Hand Mixer:

Love this mixer. My other mixer died ater 20 years and I needed a new one. Got a really good deal and I love the Kitchen aid brand. Decided to take a chance and am so glad I did. This mixer does its job and more. I use it to help me with all my mixing for baking and everyday recipes. I am hoping I get 20 years out of this one too. Clean up is very easy.

A simple mixer for the simple cook

By 

from Dublin, OH

Comments about KitchenAid 3-Speed Hand Mixer:

I have owned the Kitchen-Aid Classic 3-Speed Hand Mixer for over 5 years and have been happy with it from the beginning. It is not exactly the fanciest mixer out there, but I am not exactly a fancy cook. I like to make casseroles, slow cooker meals, and the occasional cake or batch of cookies, but nothing too complicated. For a cook like me, this is the perfect hand mixer.

This mixer is easy to use and very durable. It's also very easy to clean when the job is all done. Simply press a button to release the metal mixers, throw the mixers in the dishwasher, and wipe the main mixing component with a damp cloth. I would recommend this mixer to anyone who is a cook of a similar level as myself.

Mixing Performance
Mixes my ingredients well every time!

Ease of Cleaning
Cleans well with a damp cloth.

Ease of Use
Very simple to use!

Design
Simple design, but does the job well!

Durability
Has lasted for several years now, and I've had no problems with it.

simple and basic, all you really need!

By 

from Chapel Hill, NC

Comments about KitchenAid 3-Speed Hand Mixer:

My husband and I registered for this hand mixer 5 years ago at Bed Bath, and Beyond. We got it as a wedding gift, and it has been exactly what we needed. It is middle of the line, not too expensive, not too cheap, and does the job. It has 2 sets of mixers, and we have used them both. My only complaint is that the first speed is pretty fast. I wish that the first setting was much slower, because I feel like once you get to the highest speed, your batter is flying EVERYWHERE because it's just way too fast. Other than that, it really is quite basic, and just gets the job done.

My KitchAid Mixer beats all other brands!

By 

from Lake City, FL

Comments about KitchenAid 3-Speed Hand Mixer:

I received this as a gift for my wedding 10 years ago, and it still works today! I use it for baking, mashed potatoes, and pudding. It is perfect for my cooking needs. KitchenAid products are priced higher than other brands, but they are well worth it. They last a very long time which makes it well worth it! I have never had any issues with my mixer. It is easy to use and easy to clean. I would purchase this brand again in the future if I had too.
