yes it doesn't have speed control.... you may get a little splatter here and there... but if you don't use a hand mixer all the time, why in the world would you want to invest in an expensive one for mixing batter?? this one works just fine and it? was especially good for my wallet. and hey, it still beats mixing by hand any day. your arms will thank you for purchasing this in the long run! it's quite handy for baking, makes it quick and painless and gets the job done. thank you black and decker for good cheap probucts!
This model does not have good speed control. It seems to have speeds of FAST, FASTER and VERY FAST. If you are mixing something that is light weight, it will start flying everywhere. For example, when you add the flour when making cookies, it ends up all over the counter. There is NO SLOW SPEED.
The metal? base broke in 3 different places during beating together soft butter and sugar after only a few uses.
Plastic worm gear wear out quickly, very bad quality, spare part is not available. NOT recommended.
Used this mixer three times and it burned out. i took it back to the store and got my money back. I will never buy another Black and Decker anything.
