Pros:Nice case for storing cord and beaters, holds mixer in stable manner on a shelf.
Cons:Metal or coating on metal beaters comes off in flakes in food.
I just bought one of these Hamilton Beach 62695V hand mixers last night. I used it for making some frosting and was horrified to see silver or metal flakes in my frosting. I looked at the bowl and at the mixer as well as the counter area for what might have caused the problem. I realized it was the beaters on the mixer! I don't know if there is a silver colored coating on the mixers that is coming off or if there are metal flakes. I cannot contact customer service until tomorrow but I am so disappointed in the poor quality of the beaters. I noticed that this mixer was made in China.
