I am just beginning my baking journey and so far I got no complains. It is very easy to setup, and use. The built-in storage was a bonus. You can really see and feel the quality of the material, it is a keeper indeed.
I have been traumatised with buying a cheap hand mixer as mine blew up on my face a few minutes of use. Now I decided I want the one with quality in mind so it will last longer and I don't need to keep buying another one. Only time will tell for me how long this product will last but so far so good.
Overall, if you want a keeper, get this so you won't have to go back to square one of doing lots of research and reading reviews.
Perfect Hand Mixer
I had an old model Kenwood Chef with all the attachments, it was a marvelous machine but due to diet change I no longer needed such a big piece of equipment. I checked out product review and went with the Cuisinart Power Advantage. What a fab little mixer !! It was always my lament with a big mixer that you had to continually stop & scrape down the sides when baking with small amounts. But this is perfect for the job and what I need right now . Starts with a slow speed great for incorporating the flour without chucking it everywhere, top speed ...is fast & efficient with everything in between. I can't comment on the dough making capacity as I have a bread machine..The third attachment is a whisk and seems fairly robust.The top mounted control is well positioned and easy to use, the release button is underneath so you don't eject by mistake. Really great design in that the mixer sits in its own storage container with the attachments. I love this mixer :)
Fantastic. Just what I wanted.
Let me start off by saying that I believe this mixer was designed by someone who actually bakes and uses a hand mixer. What a wonderful appliance. I purchased this mixer after seeing a review on youTube that said it really does mix slowly on it's three lowest settings. If you do a lot of baking you will no doubt find that most mixers mix far to fast when incorporating flour at it's lowest setting. My goodness, this mixer does such a fantastic job of gently folding flour into your creamed butter/sugar.
I like that the release lever is s...et sort of below the hand grip (I am not sure if I am explaining that well) so when you want to eject the beaters all you do is reach a finger down and pull up on the leaver. You are very unlikely to accidently pull on the lever because of where it is positioned and, unlike most other mixers, it is not a button which is on the top of the mixer and you end up either using two hands to push it or struggling with one hand. The swivelling cord is great as it means your cord can leave the mixer on the right of the left depending on whether you are left or right handed and it does not get in the way when you stand the mixer on it's end. Now, what I think is just a fantastic development. I love that the mixer comes with it's own sort of protective case thingie. All your beaters are kept in there and the cord is stored in there and then the case thingie and the mixer clip together so you always have your beaters and other attachments when you go to use your mixer and you also do not find yourself getting frustrated at having a cord getting tangled up with things in your cupboard. I have used the beaters mainly. I work my dough by hand so have never used the dough hooks. The whisk is interesting as it is set off centre and at a slight angle so that it more accurately reflects the movement you make with your hand when mixing. I have only used it once and that was for curiosity. See what I mean, I truly believe this mixer was designed by someone that regularly uses a mixer. I am so glad I bought it.
