I was disappointed with this mixer. I felt like I had no control as I use it. It does not have a low speed setting for stirring like my stand mixer had. It moves so fast that the food splashes out of the bowl. It did mix completely but it felt like I was getting a work out to complete the task. I have had hand mixers in the past but none acted like this even as a child using it. Also I have to ask my husband to remove the beaters for me because they are too difficult to remove. The only good this I can say about this mixer is it was inexpensive. I guess you get what you pay for.
