Worse mixer you can buy
Terrible mixer. Works for a month and then breaks . It has a year warranty and made use of that but it broke a month later again. Didnt used it for hard food or anything what could had destroyed it . Just for baby food and it fully failed even for that perpose.
Save your money and the plastic for environment and dont buy this hand mixer.
High pitched screech - unbearable
I turned it on and then straight off after an unbearable high pitched screech sounded. It is also quite heavy, heavier than my old Breville, and too heavy for a hand-held device in my opinion. Returning for a refund. Shame because the price is good.
Value for money.
I picked up the contemp personal blender from
Big W for $29.
I’ve only made smoothies so far, but it’s performed actually better then I expected considering how much I paid for it.
Added bonus of coming with 2 drinking containers. Def recommend to those wanting a blender for the simpler tasks.
Does the job
This is a basic stick mixer, which adequately whips up egg whites, mayonnaise or a smoothie. It has two speeds, although there seems to be little difference between the two. I don't see that as a huge issue, as I have always only used the high speed on a stick blender. But it may make a difference to someone else.
The bottom part comes apart for ease of cleaning. And it is great to throw it in the sink without worrying about the motor getting wet. Unfortunately it does not stay together. I have to stop the stick blender at least once each use to reattach the two parts. It also starts to smell like it is overheating after 30 seconds of use. You need to stop for a few seconds before continuing.
Big W Contempo stick mixer with beaker
This is an amazing little appliace. My Bamix brand stick blender died after 22 years. I needed a stick mixer that day for a specific recipe. Although priced at a bargain of only $19, this appliance has a super powerful action. I have only needed to use it on 1st speed as 2nd speed is so powerful I have not needed it. The blade separates easily from the motor component for easy rinsing. Well worth its price.
