The metal construction is die-cast. A large glass jar with a full-size blender attachment. The stand mixer has a high-speed power outlet. 12 speeds for ice crushing. Product built to North American electrical standards has a leak-resistant cover. The "Series" consists of SM 70, SM 70BC, SM 70BK, SM 55, SM-55BC, and SM-55BK.
👤The stand mixer from Cuisinart came with some of the same things as the competing brands. I wanted to make soups and smoothies. The manual says to blend on speed 12 but it created a lot of froth in my smoothies. An online search suggested that the problem could be attributed to too-high speeds. If I try to blend at lower speeds, the blender doesn't work because the blades don't move. I have to stir the mixture every 20 seconds or so when it's turned off. I end up with less frothy and less blended smoothies, which are still perfectly drinkable, but just not perfect. I wish I'd bought a proper blender with variable speeds, but any suggestions as to how to get around this problem are welcome.
👤This is a heavy blender that works well with my mixer. It blends well and is heavy duty. I don't need another appliance on my counter. I love it!
👤I'm glad I got this instead of a full size blender. It is easy to fit on the counter. I've been making shakes and smoothies. It's volume is not louder than any other, and it's convenient. The mixer has a graduated start, so it doesn't have a powerful burst mode like most blenders. It does get through ice with a subtle pulse in the blender speed.
👤I just bought a stand mixer and I was hoping this would work for me. It doesn't have any power. I tried to make a shake with a banana in it. It couldn't puree the banana. There were bits in it. I am not happy. I need something else for my blender.
👤My first one had a crack in it's base, which affected it's use. I received a new one immediately and it has worked out well, even though it has only been used once so far. I am happy with it because it does what it promises. I am not a fan of the plastic material used to make the lids, but I was surprised to find it didn't cause leaking. Yes! The plastic base is sensitive to stains, just as many reviewers said the top was. I came up with a semi- solution, which is to put plastic wrap, wax paper or cloth into the lid, if you want to cut down more. If the lid liner was torn from the food in the blender, it could be dangerous. I'm not going to worry about the staining, I'm sure there are stain removing recipes on the internet. I'm looking forward to making my own food. If you have anyone in the home with allergies, this is a very economical and wise investment. I like how it uses the speed of the blender. It isn't all that secure on top of the mixer since it's up so high and doesn't fit deep in to the mixer, take care not to knock it over/off. I would purchase it again for the price I paid.
👤I thought getting the attachment would be better than a new one, but it turned out that having to pull out the standing mixer every time to blend was a bigger hassle than getting a new one. The blender works well, but you need to keep the speeds down and keep the blades from spinning so you don't have to blend.
The center cord rotates for both right and left-handed use. The motor is 500 watt. The planetary mixing action has 59 points. A bowl with a capacity of 5.5 quarts. 12 speeds for mixing. Includes chef's whisk, dough hook, flat mixing paddle, splash guard with pour spout, instruction and recipe booklet. The metal construction is die-cast.
👤I was worried about the quality of this product after reading reviews that said the whisk is flimsy and doesn't reach the bottom of the bowl and that the spring gets dirty and caked in dough. I'm happy I bought it. I did not encounter any of these issues. I've made pizza dough, English muffins, naan bread, cookies and hamburgers buns and it has been great. I didn't encounter any issues. It's very well designed and performs very well. I recommend.
👤We wanted a stand mixer that would not break the bank. We wanted a KitchenAid, but would have gone for their lowest-end model. Glad we didn't. The basic KitchenAid hands down are beaten by this Cuisinart. We use it a lot and have not been disappointed. A powerful and quiet mixer that handles everything we do.
👤I was very disappointed with the stand mixer. If you need to mix/beat small quantity of eggs, the paddle attachment doesn't reach far enough to the bottom of the bowl.
👤The motor got really hot to touch after only 1 min of use.
👤I love this mixer. My daughter bought a well known brand of mixer, but it was on sale. It was too heavy for me and I was very focused on right handed people. If you are left handed, this mixer is very usable and can be moved out of storage. The bowl cover is very useful.
It's a super function. Their stand mixer has a 500- watt motor, die-cast metal construction, and 12-speeds that allow for excellence in performing a variety of preparation tasks. Must-have features. There is a tilt-back head and one power outlet for optional attachments. Included: The chef's whisk, dough hook, flat mixing paddle, and splash guard with pour spout are included. Options and colors are available. All colors are available in Robin's Egg and Silver Lining. Refer to the user manual for questions surrounding warranty policies and the product is free.
👤There were a lot of mixed reviews. I was nervous when I bought this but I didn't want to pay more than my competitor. I have been making bagels and bread loaves for at least a month. The mixer is great. I saw a lot of reviews that said it didn't rub the edge or get all of the ingredients. You don't want it to happen. Over time the motor wears out and the bowl is damaged. I have made 15 batches of bagels and 10 loaves of bread and have not had to stop the machine to mix the ingredients. Dough is very difficult to mix and this one has no issues. It is large. For those wondering, this is a full size mixer. People said that the materials are cheap and the pivot snapped. Incorrect use. The thing is made of metal. This isn't a cheap mixer. I can see how some have snapped this if you rock the head back and let it slam open and shut. It is not fragile either. I am pretty sure it is from people carelessly opening it and closing it. The bowl is large enough for full and double batches and the mixing attachment is coated so they are easy to clean. Don't let the negative reviews scare you. This has been one of the better mixers I have purchased in the past.
👤I had this machine for two weeks and I loved it. I have owned several brands of stand mixers and always follow the manufacturer's recommended settings. I take care of my equipment. I called Cuisinart to get a shipping label for the repair of the motor after it started whining and the head became stiff. They said I would get my mixer back working in 3-6 weeks. I was fine with a refurbished unit if it worked. The package was dropped off after 4 weeks. I didn't get a call or email saying something had been shipped. I was home. It was not stolen. I would have never known that the package was taken if I hadn't been home. The item I received after 4 weeks of waiting was damaged so badly that it couldn't hold speed on a 1 and was making a loud grinding noise. I was told to send the unit in again and wait 3-6 weeks. The agent warned me that they couldn't guarantee the next one would be any better and that they wouldn't send a new one. The agent said they were sorry, but they don't have contact with the warehouse, so they assume the refurbished unit sent would have worked fine. They can't say why it's not and how the next unit will operate. Conair, the company that owns Cuisinart, has a strict company policy against sending out new stand mixers. Stand mixers are not allowed to be replaced with new ones under warranty. I was told by several agents that even if I had multiple broken mixers shipped, they wouldn't send a new one to make sure I got a working mixer. I was told that the warranty is deducted every 3-6 weeks. Depending on the shipment time, a second send in would take up to 12 weeks. They had a mixer, but it's still against my coverage. It is assumed that other replacement worked. It will take another 3-6 weeks to rinse and repeat. The only other option I was given was a line of credit at Cuisinart for the amount I paid with Amazon to purchase one over the phone at Cuisinart for full price. I would have to pay the price difference plus taxes and the shortened warranty period would still apply. Currently, Cuisinart charges $199. I paid for it on Amazon. In a call with an Amazon agent, Cuisinart confirmed this. They wouldn't budge on price or send a new mixer under warranty. I bought the Asurion protection with this item. Even if they weren't cooperating, Asurion couldn't step in until the entire warranty had expired. The protection plan is 2 years and the warranty is 3 years. I didn't know Asurion had a policy. I called Cuisinart many times. I had one of their agents laugh at me multiple times when I called about a broken replacement, and when I wanted an update during the 4 week period. I was hung up on. The agents were more interested in playing with each other than paying attention to their job. I waited on the phone for 45 minutes and was told to email their customer service because they couldn't help me over the phone. It was worse to email Cuisinart. It took over a week for a badly written response to be sent, and I am positive it was a bot. Each representative said they couldn't help me because they couldn't see my history. I had to repeat what I had said the first time I called. I reached out to Amazon Customer Service in desperation. They were able to resolve the issue within a day. It's going to be returned without a fee. My normal return period had ended because I had this mixer for so long. Amazon was very kind to back me up after I spoke with Cuisinart. They helped me get my Asurion protection refunded. I'm not sure if they did this because I bought it through them or because I used my Amazon credit card, but I'm very grateful. Thank you for your AMAZON customer service! You went above the call of duty to help. Thank you so much! If anyone got to the bottom of the long review and is still looking for a mixer, try Bosch. It's more money, but what a wonderful mixer. Their customer service is top notch. It's also made in Europe and here in the U.S.
The part is genuine. Up to two hours to fully charge. 20 minutes of continuous running. 5 variable speeds. There are 7.4 ion power. 2 beaters were included.
👤I finally got a hand mixer after years of slowly building up my arsenal of kitchen tools. I bought the EvolutionX because it is kind of a silly imitation of someone's idea of a hand mixer. The EvolutionX seems almost designed for a future where someone is baking oatmeal raisin cookies for the cops in Demolition Man, or for Sky. It only comes in one color for now and has a legible digital display showing your speed settings. This mixer is futuristic because it has an "X" in its name and is too busy doing futuristic things to include a space between "Evolution" and "X." The ergonomics are good, with the grip nestling in your hands. The appeal of hand mixers is that they are lightweight. This one only comes with two whisks/spinny things, as opposed to dough hooks and other swappable attachments. I use a stand mixer to make pizza dough and focaccia bread, so I don't mind, but it's worth noting. The power button takes more effort to engage than you think. I tried to turn it on after charging my unit. Nothing happened. I tried to turn it on. Nothing happened. I realized that the "click" from pressing in the power button didn't mean anything when I was blaming the product for not turning on and questioning my manhood. Think of it as a way to say, "Hey buddy, you're on the right track." You have to press in the button past the click to turn it on. This takes more time than it should. I don't know if this is a design flaw or something that is deficient with my version. The machine gets 5 minutes of continuous run time when mostly charged, and 6-7 minutes when fully charged, according to the manual. It doesn't feel good to bake while you're aware of a time limit. Since this is my first mixer, I can't compare it to a corded one, but I'd guess it's weaker. The increase in speed doesn't translate into an increase in power uniformly. The dough was churned at the same speeds when it was thicker. It wasn't until setting 5 that it was able to move through the dough. It'll get the job done, but I can't help but think that the design of the device is not as powerful as it could be. You're paying a premium for its design because it's $80 at the time of purchase. This is a great model for parkour runners who need to whip up cookies while summersaulting across buildings, but for most people that have outlets in their kitchen, I think it makes more sense to buy a corded, older model. You won't get the blue lights on it, but you will probably save a few bucks and have a more capable machine.
👤I made cheese cakes for the holidays. I used my friends old mixer to make the first two. I was excited to use the mixer and make my cake, everything was ready, including cream cheese, eggs, and butter. I tried to blend the ingredients but they wouldn't get a smooth texture. I made a second cake, charged the mixer and started again, but the batteries were almost dead, so I mixed this time until the batteries were almost dead. I borrowed the next door mixer and blended everything out perfectly, but the product I purchased from you is not the same thing. I bought a $13.50 mixer from Amazon. Andy, Tanx.
2 beaters were included. 220 Watts of power cuts through butter. It's easy to use speed control and beater button. The cord is exclusive for right handed or left handed use. 220 Watts of power cuts through butter. It's easy to use speed control and beater button. The cord is exclusive for right handed or left handed use. Extra long self cleaning beaters. It is now available in red and white.
👤The mixer is still going strong a year after we bought it. This is a hit for Cuisinart. The time of death is Feb 22, 2016 I was using the dough mixers to make oatmeal cookie dough and one side stopped spinning. I could hear the gear being stripped. I took it apart to see if I was correct. It was on its last leg because of the wear on the teeth. The unit lasted about 1.5 years. I'm going to reduce the rating from 5 stars to 4 stars because I think it should have lasted a bit longer.
👤I love the hand held mixer from Cuisinart. I bought this model at a thrift store for $5. I lent my daughter's stand mixer when it broke. I bought this one when I found it. I use the stand mixer for small to medium recipes. It's baaad in a good way. I fell out of love with it. Mixer has been having problems for a while. I reached out to them a number of times, but they didn't reply.
👤Less than a year after it was bought, it died. Loud banging inside when it's turned on. It has only been used 10 times. I've had good service from other Cuisinart products, but this one is a dud. My last mixer cost less than $10 for over a decade. I took it apart and found the plastic gears stripped. I couldn't handle the cookie dough.
👤I should have looked more closely at the reviews to see if there is a low point on this mixer. When I was making cookie batter my mixer would stop. I used the new mixer for the first time today and am afraid to use it for some recipes because the low speed is equivalent to any other mixer's high speed. The controls are easy to use, and it is easy to clean. It needs to chill out, relax, and slow down. If you put it in the yard sale pile, you will buy another.
👤This is a basic mixer. There are three speeds: fast, fast and furious. Before you turn the mixer on, make sure you have the beaters in the bowl and vertical. The wire beaters and high power do a good job. It is easy to clean the mixer surface that is likely to get splattered. Make sure you aim at the sink before you hit the button because the beaters are excited. The wire beaters are the best for most jobs. The basic nature of this mixer is lost when you buy a bunch of accessories. A basic model is what I need, because I only use a hand mixer occasionally. 5 stars.
👤I was not able to get the mixer on Speed 1 at first. I made excellent whip cream after finding the slow setting and the switch loosened up. I am happy with my purchase, even though the whisk-like beaters may make a contribution.
👤This is a great mixer. If you want to mix dry, powdery flour with liquids, the low speed is high. If I just stir a little with the mixer off, it will help to start the mixing procedure. I stir around the bowl quickly and it mixes up pretty quickly. The larger hole takes the beater with the extra metal ring where it clicks in the hole, so make sure you put the beaters in the correct holes. If you don't hear the beaters click into place before you turn on the mixer, you will lose them. The batter won't stick in between the wire and have to be dug out if you don't have the middle stem. It whips the egg whites up quickly with angel food cakes. The cake was smooth and lite. This is an easy to use hand mixer and I would recommend it to anyone.
It is now available in red and white. SmoothStart eliminates splattering. The beater is easy to use. The center cord rotates for both right and left-handed use.
👤This is a basic mixer. Slow speed prevents splatter, high speed is enough for whipping cream. The mixer is two or three times more expensive than other brands. There are no dough hooks or other accessories, but it has a powerful 200 watt motor, decent quality beaters, a swivel power cord, and a square back so it rests on the counter without tipping.
👤This is a great job when I don't want to bother with the big mixer. It's easy to clean. I like the shape of the beaters. The rounded ones are the same as the flat ones. These seem to glide better against the bowl without the harsh edges which makes it safer.
👤I was a bit nervous about the price and the three speeds, but I am happy with how it turned out. The slow start/low speed is better than my old mixer and it does not splatter ingredients. I haven't tried to whip cream yet. I think high speed will work. The old whisk attachment is compatible with the new mixer. I need a hand mixer that is low, medium, and high. It is manual and there are no digital buttons to deal with. I can change speed with my thumb.
👤I am not an expert on hand mixers, but I am pretty sure the beater shouldn't wobble like a bike tire. Yes, beaters are inserted correctly.
👤If you are doing serious cooking or baking, this is not for you. This is great if you want a simple handmixer on a budget for making cookies or smaller recipes. I have baked cookies with this three times and it works just fine. It's easy to throw the mixers in the wash. Doesn't seem strong enough to handle thick things. The first setting is slow so it won't splatter your food. I am happy with the price.
👤It is good if it turns on for the price that I paid. This isn't a heavy duty mixer. A good stand mixer is what you need to make dough. You don't have to drag the big one out. A box cake mix. That type of thing.
👤I was very pleased with this mixer. I didn't need all the bells and whistles. The basic mixer is easy to use and has a range of speeds that are slow. The bowl does a great job of mixing the contents. I have never had to use a spoon to finish mixing. It is brand new and still looks good, but it gets used a lot.
👤I'm telling you why I bought it. I don't need this product. I bought this product because the product I was using was broken. Before I buy this product, I read a review from a previous buyer. It turns out that the previous buyer reviews are pretty good, making me even more interested in buying this product. I bought this product. I'm wondering if this product is better than my previous product. I think positive. I'm sure that this product will make me happy and better than the product I've used before. I was very happy with the results of this product.
Measures approximately 8 by 3 by 5 inches. The set of beaters is for the CHM Series hand mixers. It works with models such as HM-50, HM-50BK, and CHM-7. The part is genuine.
👤The first time, they spun out of shape. The little welding job that holds the two pieces of metal together on the beaters was undone. They weren't fixable. The money was wasted.
👤My old hand mixer was replaced. I had to throw away the beaters. I had a $20 hand mixer and thought it was the end. I found these and my hand mixer is still working. Before buying these, please confirm the model of your hand mixer. I did a lot of research before buying these. The beaters only work with the basic models. If you have a mixer that costs more than $20 or $30, these won't fit it. The higher speed models need a thicker metal beater to hold the higher Torque produced by the more powerful motor on the higher end mixer.
👤The beaters are for my mixer. I have had to replace them more than once because they are not strong enough to match the power of my hand mixer. They break over time. They should be made to last. The last purchase was delivered on October 15 and they broke on December 3.
👤I don't think the quality of the brand name Cuisinart is bad, but the beaters are poorly made and break easily. Disappointing.
👤I got my beaters in the mail and I was surprised at what I got. I was completely surprised. They are made stronger. I am very grateful.
👤The beaters are cheap and keep breaking, but I really like the Cuisinart hand mixer. It is time to move to a more reliable product.
👤The beaters fit perfectly with my hand mixer. The beaters that came with the mixer broke while making whipped potatoes. The seller did everything he could to make the purchase right after some shipping errors. If needed, would buy again.
👤It was a perfect replacement for my beaters. The first pair of beaters were stuck in the silverware rack. I put the beater side down. The price is reasonable.

Includes fondue forks, fork rack, and bowl.
👤The cheese and chocolate burn quickly. This is a possibility in a fondue pot. This is a good size to turn into a double boiler. We usually have a 3-course fondue meal with this one pot, and we fill the fondue pot with water up to the handle screws. Put the cheese in a bowl and use it to great success. This makes a double boiler. We like to keep the cheese at a nice temperature by cranking the heat up to a 4. Lift the bowl and dump the water. Throw the poker-holder lid on when you fill it up. The cheese trick can be repeated for chocolate. A fondue pot is not washed out between courses. We have an issue with the length of the plug. They say not to use an extension cord. That cord is not long. I think the manufacturer was doing his best evil-genius when he put that on the label. The thing seems to be ok so far, after being tested in the dishwasher.
👤Caveat Emptor warns buyers ofSCALDING RISK. This fondue pot is very nice. When I put the top ring on the bowl, it fell in and splashed oil, because it was out of round. I had to carefully fish out the ring from the hot oil before serving guests because it could give you paralyzing burns. The bowl is testable by placing the ring on top and tugging it toward the sides, as I fixed it by pressing inwards from the handles. You are in danger if there is a gap between the side of the ring and the bowl. Be careful! It is surprising that a brand like Cuisinart would allow this to happen. The ring should have been fitted with a larger lip to overlap the bowl. The issue should be raised with their legal team.
👤This is worth it. We love going to the Melting Pot. It is expensive to frequent. I bought a fondue pot to recreate their food and it worked great. We used red wine and spices to cook our meats. It was almost the same. If you are thinking about it, buy this!
👤This is awesome. I have used it twice in a week. I suggest putting it on 4 when melting chocolate and stirring constantly because it will melt your ingredients quickly. Place it on 2 to keep it warm. The outside of the fondue pot is not hot but warm, which I think is safe, and the kids were using the fondue pot with no accidents. It is easy to clean. You have to be careful as you wash the pot because the plug can get wet. I suggest ordering an extension cord because it needs a longer cord. The fondue pot is easy to use. It is easy to clean. It's much better than a fountain.
👤My daughter and I both bought one so we can lend it to each other. The electric cord is similar to the power cord on my Apple laptop. If someone catches the cord, it detaches, instead of pulling hot oil or cheese on them. They solved the issue of buying a corded pot. The pots are well made and have a pretty design.
The design is Robust Silver and Blue. The dimensions are 7.2 x 4.3 x 3 inches. 5 feet is the length of the cable. Automatic feedback and a 220 watt motor for a handheld blender. The slide control can shift speeds with a single touch. Extra-long dishwasher-safe beaters; beater-eject lever. Spatula and instruction book are included. The wattage is 250.00 watt.
👤CuisinArt hand mixers were purchased between February of 2009 and June of 2019. Every single one of them stopped working. It was out of the blue. The last one lasted 9 months. You're probably wondering why I kept buying them. I can't find any other mixer with the same power as Cuisinart. I kept telling myself that there must have been an obscure problem with the ones before, which will be fixed and the next one will work perfectly. I will be happy. But hat has not been used. I don't have a hand mixer because Number 7 stopped working nine months ago. If I want to beat some eggs, I have to get a heavy stand mixer. They know what the market is like. They continue to do it. I think I'm owed a hand mixer that will work for years to come, between the 2 of them. Are anyone interested in making a bet? There was a time when shoddy workmanship and zero dealer reliability was not a thing. That is a shame. It lasted 7 months after I got another mixer from Cuisinart. The mixer was number 8. I'm not a dummy. I will fool you once. Shame on you. Shame on me for fool me 8 times. I will not buy another appliance from Cuisinart. I think that any company that wants it can make a fortune. All they have to do is make appliances that perform well and don't have a built in kill date. The market is yours if you do that.
👤I am so sad to write this review. I used the mixer for about 15 times. I was willing to look past the slower speed, but I was disappointed that my mixer stopped working in the middle of a 5 tiered cake. I had my husband take it apart to see what was going on. The PLASTIC gears had been stripped. There is no way to fix it unless we find the plastic gear. I thought it would last me longer than 4 months with the brand name. My brand lasted 15 years. So disappointed.
👤The mixer is powerful. I only used the lowest setting. Trying to mix a lot of cookies is not a good idea. Batter is thrown everywhere. My husband found something in my hair. I can beat eggs whites even on the lowest setting. You need an apron with a strong arm to keep the mixer in the bowl. Too much power!
👤The reason I am giving this mixer a single star is because it doesn't have a stir setting. The mixer is too powerful on the lowest speed. I missed my return window. I caution anyone looking to buy this to beware of its forcefulness.
👤The hand mixer's lowest speed is not low at all. The product description is not accurate. It would be great to have a low speed to blend the ingredients before whipping it up. It is so fast that your ingredients are thrown out. You can whip cream on the lowest setting. I missed my window. I want a new hand mixer that doesn't require you to mix your ingredients by hand until they are well blended - it defeats the purpose of using the hand mixer in the first place. Don't hold on to your beaters, they'll hit the room and you'll be sorry!

The chef's whisk is included. Measures approximately 8 by 3 by 5 inches.
👤I think you should consider a different mixer. I loved it when I received it. Positive aspects are true in the reviews. The beater retention mechanism is the downfall of this mixer. The beaters will fall out as you use it for a short period of time. The plastic tabs that hold the beaters in are easy to break. The beaters won't lock into the new mixer. I've only used mine 12 times and it's useless now. It doesn't offer a fix. The mixer is out of warranty because I don't use it often. The design is still very poor. Hope you have better luck. If the two plastic parts didn't break, the mixer and price would be good.
👤We've always found the brand to have excellent products, but now we're not sure if it's true. The beater attachment of the hand mixer can not securely lock and hold into place because of a design flaw. Other customers experienced the same issue as I did. I can't use the mixer due to the issue, so I wouldn't recommend it. I should have upgraded my old hand mixer without all the extras as it never had issues or stopped working after years of use. The product inquiry forms will not go through when attempting to contact Cuisinart. Not helpful!
👤I bought the Cuisinart HM-70 Power Advantage 7-Speed Handmixer because it had more power than others. I don't like it for two reasons. The manufacturer claims that it has a slow start to keep ingredients from flying out of the bowl. There's an initial burst that kicks up flour and sugar. After a couple of seconds, it slows down. The damage has already been done. 2. It was a lot of work to make the dessert with this mixer. I didn't achieve the high volume I wanted because it took more than seven minutes to get there. The only positive I can say is that Cuisinart provided two different beaters. The two are used for mixing and whipping cream. My husband threw out the box or I would return the mixer to the store.
👤Very disappointed! You have no control over the lowest speed because it randomly picks up speed, slows down, slows down, and you have no control over it. I can't imagine going higher than that. The blades are flimsy. You put one in the other hole and it falls out. Don't waste your money. I haven't found a good mixer yet. I have a Kitchen-aid mixer that you can put your money on if you only have one mixer. I don't pull her out because she's a little heavy, but she's reliable and slow like it's supposed to be.
👤This mixer was purchased in the year of 2014. It's the best mixer on CR and other sites. The large beater won't stay in the mixer for long. I need a mixer that can use both beaters. Don't buy! It's too expensive for it to break quickly. The motor of the mixer I had from Walmart burned up in 1985. I use my mixer about 6 times a year. This one is not what I want.

👤The manufacturer's photos showing the accessories nicely fitting below the mixer in the clear plastic container have been altered to hide the fact that the electrical cord must also share that same space. It's almost impossible to fit both cords and accessories in a storage container. The marketing department at Cuisinart had an electrical cord in their photos. I would not have spent my money on a plastic container if I had known the truth. The mixer works.
👤I love this mixer. The container that came with the mixer was not something I agreed with.
👤The mixer broke in 38 days. The gears will no longer hold one of the beaters and I will no longer be able to beat soft butter and sugar with it. Absolutely junk! I had to pay a huge fee for a mixer that lasted less than 6 weeks because I had to pay $10 shipping for a new one. Don't waste your money.
👤I can quote from their email. Thank you for your inquiry. If you have provided the information, your unit is within the warranty period and can be replaced.

We want you to cover the cost of shipping the unit to Cuisinart. You should use a traceable insured delivery service. What do you get? You have to pay to have a mixer fixed if it breaks within months. No thanks to you.
👤I purchased this item on Amazon. I only use it occasionally for baking or mashed potatoes in the house. I used a Hamilton Beach mixer for 25 years without incident. It has more power and speed than my old model, but it has stopped working after less than 5 years of use. While whipping potatoes, the motor slowed down to a near stop, and then sped up to a speed much higher than the normal top speed. I stopped using it after it smelled like something was burning inside. The item is brand new. I'm not happy with the length of time this item worked, as well as the "3 year limited warranty." I will replace it with another brand.
👤I have owned the KA 9 speed hand mixer for over a year and recently purchased the 7 speed from Bed Bath and Beyond with their coupon. I thought it would be helpful if people were trying to figure out which one they wanted to buy. I think the best hand mixers are both of them. I can only prove that part by buying the Cuisinart. The first speed on the Ka is slower than on the Cuisinart. You have to remember that with the Cuisinart it starts off quicker when you just turn it on and it slows down, so hold it out of the bowl before you use it in the batter. The KA dough hooks tend to make a better bread or pizza dough than the other dough hooks, so I don't know why, maybe it's me? I don't know if the shape of the dough hooks, the dough hooks on the Ka and the ones on the cuisinart matter. The KA tends to work better for me in heavier dough. The KA has 9 speeds and the Cuisnart has 7. I haven't used the full speeds on either mixer. I tried to make whip cream with the balloon whisks, but they seem worthless to me. The regular beaters on both of them work better. I think the KA is cheaper online than on TV, but I usually use Amazon. They are good to work with in case of problems. I was able to use the 20% off coupon they always send in the mail to save on the Cuisinart 7 speed, the same as the 9 speed online here, which cost $59.00. I like the fact that I can go to the store and look at something first before I buy it. I think it works better with a heavier dough than it does with a quieter one. The 9 speed that they sell is very powerful and the 7 speed that I have is just as powerful. I got the KA in a beautiful silver color and I love it. The KA is more expensive, so I tend to go to the Cuart for less hassle, if my batter is heavier. I don't know if lonegevity means the Ka has a powerful dc motor, but those who know motors can tell more than I can. I hope this review helps someone decide.
