This hand mixer is nice looking and appears to be of good quality material. I always have excellent purchase experiences at Sears so I believe this will be a good quality purchase.
You have to push in the speed control switch to get the beaters to pop out. However, while using this to make a batch of soft peanut butter cookies, the beater kept falling out. I made sure my fingers and hand was nowhere near the button, it still came out. Not happy with this purchase at all. Waste of money, do not buy.
