Rated 4 out of 5Â by Coloradooldtimer Duralit Hand Mixer - Plenty of Power
Hand mixers typically range from wimpy to really wimpy. If you want real mixing action you go to the Kitchen Aid stand mixer. Alas, not every mixing job needs an outboard motor. They do, however, need an effective mixer for small jobs. The Duralit is actually pretty amazing. A bigger motor than all of the rest gives it some real power for heavy mashed potatoes, but doesn't throw whipped cream all over the kitchen.
Neat and clean stainless appearence with a retractable cord (just winds up into the base).
The only deficit, and the reason for only 4 stars, is that it doesn't have a really slow start speed, and can catch you by surprise when it really boogies.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Oasis A Very Powerful Hand Mixer!
This hand mixer is the most powerful one that I have ever used! I normally purchase Hamilton Beach or Black and Decker products for the kitchen, but they seem to last only a short time. When my hand mixer was on the verge of dying, I decided to spend a little more (than I would normally) and buy the Dualit. It serves all of my purposes very well and even the lowest setting does an excellent job mixing. The cord is conveniently stored inside the mixer's casing, so the cord length can be varied and it is retrieved by twisting the end of the mixer that causes it to be wound back inside. Overall, I am very satisfied with my Dualit and look forward to many years of heavy duty mixing without a lot of effort.

Nice, powerful hand held mixer that can handle any task! Great quality mixer that looks like it will last! Now, I don't have to pull out my heavy, deluxe countertop Kitchenaid mixer for everyday recipes. I also like the retractable cord feature. The only thing I was disappointed in was with way it was shipped to my home.... it came with a shipping sticker on the mixer in the box. No packing box, no packing materials. I was afraid to open the mixer to find it damaged, but it seems to be fine so far. I don't understand why it came like this to my door, otherwise, wonderful product!

I needed something with some power to replace my Kitchen Aid mixer that was losing it's oomph and this Dualit 5-speed hand mixer does the trick. It's just a tad heavier, but I don't mind that because it actually adds a little more leverage when using given the additional power it has. I've yet to have to max out the power on this mixer and with Christmas goodies, I put it through its paces. I wish I had purchased another one for my daughter. I may still do that, I like this mixer that much. Why lug around a big stand mixer when this is really all you need.
