The last electric mixer I owned was from 10 years ago. What I hated about my old electric mixer was that:
-it was too loud
-A weird, burning smell when using
-it was too powerful even on the lowest speed causing ingredients to be flying around everywhere i.e. myself and on the walls
This led me to purchase the KitchenAid 5-Speed hand mixer, which I am very pleased with! Firstly it's extremely quiet. Secondly,
my ingredients were not flying around every where when I was using it. This was the most important thing for me. It mixed
everything nicely and I look forward to using it more in the future when making desserts.
I should mention that the beaters are very easy to wash.
I highly recommend this mixer and for the price, it was an excellent buy.
Also the colour is cute so can't complain :)
