Black & Decker PowerPro Hand Mixer MX300 was the first ever hand mixer I purchased. I usually end up buying Black & Decker products when it comes to kitchen electrics because they are mostly affordable as compared to other brands and lasts for pretty decent time, at least for about two to three years. It works well when it comes to mixing some liquids, eggs whip really well but it is a blunder when it comes to mixing solids into liquids. It was a splash bath, just because it's lowest possible speed is not low enough. It moves so fast that it makes it difficult to whip the cream and it is always accompanies with a loud noise. I did not use this mixer for a long time and ended up giving it to someone. I should have put in extra twenty bucks and purchased a better brand mixer that would have got the job done, but why to cry over spilled milk. I'd be extra cautious and read the reviews thoroughly before making any purchase in the future.
