After burning the motor out of several cheap hand mixers, I spent a bit more for this one. I couldn't be happier. The motor is very strong. It doesn't seem to get overheated, or bog down like cheaper mixers can do. I love that there are 10 speeds, and the timer is very convenient. Design It's a little heavier than other mixers, and very hard to balance on the bowl if you need a moment to grab something else. If the bowl is just the right size, you can balance it, but you can't really leave it resting for long.
