Rated 2 out of 5Â by LifeatHome This product did not perform very well with my need to mash potatoes with it. I have always used a mixer for this task. The style of beaters is too skinny. It doesn't catch the chunks of potatoes they just slip right through the beaters. I am disappointed. I had to mix longer than usual to get all the lumps out. I now have a mixer that does little and yet takes up space in my cupboard. I thought the dough hooks were a nice addition to the product but am now wondering how they will perform. It is another example of the times.... same cost... less product. Bring back the old style beaters. I have always believed that Black and Decker products could be dependable.
Rated 2 out of 5Â by Aysia Beaters Aren't Great
I used this yesterday morning for the first time to make waffles.
The beaters really aren't very good, even after mixing the thin batter for some time there were a lot of lumps still.
Are there other mixing attachments that would fit in this unit? I would hate to get rid of the unit as the speeds and everything seem just fine, because the mixing attachments aren't good enough.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by sbj2542 love this mixer!!!!
I purchased this mixer because compared to the others it came with more features. I love that it comes with more than the standard whisks. But my favorite part is the storage case that clips to the bottom of the mixer! keeps all the attachments together and stores the cord! I love it for storing in the cabinet between uses!
the mixer works great as well! good high power with all utensils!
my mom came over while I was cooking one day and was raving about the extra attachments and storage case and was going to go buy herself one (even though hers works fine) just because it was so compact and everything gets stored together!
