Cons:*Too powerful
*No low settings
*Hard to retract the cord
*Heavy

The Bottom Line: Unless you find an exceptional deal and plan to use VERY deep bowls then I would skip this mixer and find a better one. Happy whipping, mixing, and baking!


I bought the Oster 250watt hand mixer as a post wedding gift to myself with high hopes of putting Martha Stewart and Julia Child to shame with my frugal purchase and fabulous desserts. But just like you may be thinking, I was wrong and was instantly humbled when pulling this monstrosity out of the box. It is a heavy yet sturdy piece of equipment. It looks modern and is an average low end purchase. The design of the bulky machine is actually useful. It has a flat bottom and it's weight is proportioned so that you can set it down veritcally and not get batter all over your counter. It also is big enough to rest on the edge of a large/deep bowl, which may also come in handy. The real/main problem with this mixer is the speed settings. Flipping it on to the lowest setting flung batter across my kitchen, it was much too powerful on setting 1. I was able to use it still but I had to hold it firmly and dip cautiously in and out of the batter. This made it difficult and time consuming to prepare my batter. The next day I tried it again to whip cream cheese for my morning bagel, this time I used a deeper bowl and the same cautious dipping action. It was a tad messy but it worked! Light, fluffy, delicious cream cheese to top my bagel.  I found a use for the bulky item but truth be told if I would have kept my receipt I would have returned it.

It comes with two mixer attachments, one beater, and two bread kneeders.

It also has a retractable cord that is useful for storage but tricky to work.
