    Powerful, high quality, easy-to-use hand mixer. The sturdy wire beaters are a breeze to clean and can easily handle cookie dough and lots of other mixtures. All that, plus a convenient storage case. I highly recommend this mixer!

  2. Canadian Eh!

    I purchased this mixer in 2017. It lasted 2 years. The beaters stopped turning.
    Cuisinart replaced it under warranty and 2 years later, same issue. I called Cuisinart again and was told there is no warranty on a warranty replacement.
    I would not purchase this again obviously. I found it to be too loud anyway. So, two strikes you’re out Cuisinart. I purchased a Black & Decker for $29.99 on Amazon. It’s much quieter and operates exactly the same as the higher priced mixer.

    This is a mixer, so cleanup is the same as any other.
    Nice speed control.
    Works very well.
    2 minor quibbles….it is a bit loud and the cord is a pain to get into the storage bin.

    I have been using this hand mixer for almost 2 years now. While I may not use it daily or even multiple times each week (depending on the week), I do seem to use it several times a month. I thus far I have not had any difficulties with it.

    The following are the things I really like about it:

    – The simple easy to use on/off and speed buttons being at the top
    – The 9 different speeds. I like how it starts at a slow speed to prevent splattering and the gradual ability to build up the speed. Which the higher up
    it goes, can be very aggressive.
    – The solid, non flimsy feeling I have when using it. It isn’t heavy but yet isn’t too lightweight either. For me it is just the right weight.
    – The motor has remained strong. I haven’t experienced any lagging, whining noises, or the smell of the motor being overworked. The attachments
    have also always mixed at consistent speeds.
    – The swivel cord I really, really like! It allows me to position and maneuver the mixer however is most comfortable for me depending on what I am
    mixing. Plus overall the cord length is nice.
    – The latch release I greatly prefer. I feel safer having a button that I deliberately need to press to release the attachments.
    – I like the beaters and chef’s whisk attachments. So far there has been no rusting of any of the attachments.
    – The storage area is nice. I like being able to store the cord and attachments all in one place. While it does still latch easily, I have noticed
    recently though that there are times when I pick it up by the mixer handle, the mixer comes up off the storage area instead of the whole unit
    coming together. This by no means is a deal breaker for me, I have just started to grab it by the storage case instead of by the mixer handle.

    The following are a few observations or things that could be improved:

    – The dough hooks seem to be most effective with cookie doughs and lighter bread mixes.
    – The recent inconsistent ability to be able to pick the entire unit up by just the mixer handle when attached to the storage area. As picking it up this
    way is a preference, however it is still very easy to pick the whole thing up by the storage area and this is like the only tiny pet peeve I have about
    this product. As I stated up above, this is in no way a deal breaker.

    Before we bought this, we thoroughly read many reviews and here are a few additional thoughts I have from using it these past 2 years. I in no way feel this mixer is dangerous or that I need to take any extraordinary precautions when using it. As with any appliance, you just have to be mindful of your surroundings and make safe choices. I know some have indicated that the attachments can fall out, I have only had this happen once and it was when I didn’t put them into their matching openings. Another reviewer spoke to this and I want to reiterate, there are two different fitted holes for the attachments. Each hole looks slightly different, as do the tops of the attachments. If you correspond them appropriately, I have never had an attachment fall out. When I did make this mistake, the beaters fell out as soon as I pointed the mixer slightly downward, way before I turned it on and then I realized the mistake and just switched them. It was not a big deal at all and just reminded me that I need to be mindful about this before inserting them. Lastly, while getting everything into the storage container can be a little tight, once I figured out how to have everything organized so I could still close it, I’ve just continued putting everything in there that same way and have had no difficulties with making everything fit.

    Overall, I have really enjoyed this mixer and would absolutely buy it again!

    I own the Cuisinart Power Advantage 5-Speed Handheld Mixer since early April 2009 and I am quiet happy with it thus far. In all fairness, this is my second handheld mixer and my previous mixer (

    Proctor Silex 62535 Bowl Rest 5-Speed Mixer, White

    ) was a very weak mixer, which simply did not have the power to mix any semi-thick dough. This Cuisinart mixer has significantly more power (220 Watts) and has little trouble mixing most dough, excluding bread dough of course. This mixer has an automatic feedback mechanism which was the main reason I decided to purchase it. Unlike most mixers which supply their motors with different electric powers at different settings, this mixer supplies electric power partially based on the mixing speeds. In other words, it will supply an extra burst of power to the motor when the mixing speed is slow, like mixing tough dough. It only does so temporarily to avoid over heating the motor. It has five speed settings, which is exactly what I want. For those who like additional speed settings, there is the 

    Cuisinart HM-70 Power Advantage 7-Speed Hand Mixer, Stainless and White

    . Keep in mind, their top speeds are the same as they are both powered by a 220 Watts motor. In my opinion, the slow speed setting of this mixer is a bit too fast. Beside the power, the mixer has three other features which I like a lot. First, it can sit nicely on a mixing bowl (when the power is off). Second, the power cord can swing left or right to allow the unit to securely sit upright. I have uploaded two customer images to illustrate this. Third, the beaters are easy to clean. Finally, the beaters can be effortlessly ejected by using the level. Looking at the photo, you may think this mixer has a semi-dull black. In reality, it has a shiny glossy black, which I think, looks even better. For those who prefer white color there is the: 

    Cuisinart HM-50 Power Advantage 5-Speed Hand Mixer, Stainless and White

    In summary, this is a powerful and affordable handheld mixer (not powerful compared to stand mixers)

    I do have one compliant. Years ago, customers were able to take their home appliances apart to fix them. Unfortunately, this mixer is not one of those. Cuisinart have sealed off the screw holes and prevented customers from opening up the mixer. My mixer was making some scratchy noises and I could tell it just needed some machine oil/lubrication. Instead of taking the unit apart and adding oil, I had no choice but to pour the oil from outside through the exhaust fan hole, hoping it will get to the place. It did somewhat, and now the noise has been minimized. However, it should have been more straightforward than this.

    I still think this is a very nice mixer for its utility and affordable price, and I would still strongly recommend other potential buyers to consider it. However, it would have been nicer if the screw holes are not sealed.

    *Update on late Nov 2009*: The mixer is still working fine — bought it since April 2009. The scratchy metal noise has not come back for some time. By the way, I use this mixer about 3 times per month for cookies and pastries. I hope this illustrates how often this mixer is being used. I am very satisfied with the product thus far.

    *Update on Jun 26, 2010*: Still working fine.

    *Update on May 31, 2011*: Still working.

    *Update on Jan 05, 2012*: Still working
