I purchased the Kenmore five-speed hand mixer over three years ago, and I am still so happy that I bought it! It works like a charm, and mixes even the toughest doughs with ease. I use it especially often during the holidays when I am baking dozens of Christmas cookies. I would recommend this to anyone who needs a reliable and affordable hand mixer.
I received this as a gift from my 86 yo Mother & i didn't want to hurt her feelings by immediately returning it. Big mistake. On first use I noticed the beaters wobbled a bit. No problem I thought, unless it gets worse. Then I began to mix at the slowest speed & everything was getting thrown out of the bowl. Uh, oh no fixing that - will this mixer be useful if the slowest speed is too fast? So I washed & dried the beaters, then put them away. The next time I went to use the mixer, I noticed a lot of rust on the business end f the beaters! What a disappointment. Kenmore meant something to my Mother's generation, but it's junk today.
I work for this company and expected more. I was really disappointed. The beaters clack it just appears to be a cheap knock off. I'm really sad.
