Rated 5 out of 5Â by bml4 I have made cookies, mashed potatoes, eggnog and lots of other things with my new mixer and I've decided that I like it :) . In the other reviews I read that the slow speed is really slow, it is! I was expecting more speed out of the high speed though. It doesn't spin nearly as fast as my old mixer but I have noticed that even in the thick dough and potatoes it doesn't bog down either. So all in all I think the little slower fast speed might turn out to be alright. We'll just have to see how long it lasts!! Oh I would definitely do the 7 speed (the one I bought) over the 5 speed.

I have the "big" mixer and just wanted to replace my 20+ year old hand mixer and ordered this. I tested it and was very disappointed at how it operates on the highest setting. As compared to my older mixer, this was more like a medium setting and I am surprised, especially since it is a KitchenAid.
As an example, I was making a receipe where I had to cream the butter and sugar and, on the highest setting, this took too long in my opinion. I am going to take it back and try to get one that has more speeds.

This is a great hand mixer. It is easy to use and easy to handle. Made some cookies and the dough came out great!! I would highly recommend this item.
