Pros:quiet, sexy, comfortable to hold

Cons:only comes in white color :)

The Bottom Line: the best hand mixer there is if you don't mind paying a little extra for the accessory attachments as well as mixer itself :)


i wanted to replace my still operational 5-speed singer 200watt mixer, i just wanted something better. the singer had an annoying placement of a "burst" button right on the underside of the handle so it would always get pressed inadvertently just from me holding the mixer -- the only sure way not to press it would be to hold the mixer with 3 fingers only - ridiculous.

anyway, after long research it came down to 3 mixers, the 9 speed Kitchenaid, 9 speed Cuisinart and 7 speed Kitchenaid. in a review on amazon.com i read that cuisinart was loud as hell, and that its lowest speed was not really that low, i don't know if this is actually true. i also looked at cuisinart picture and saw the same problem as with singer, the buttons infringing on the handle - so then cuisinart 9 speed was out for me.

the choice between 7speed and 9speed kitchenaid was a matter of picking a color. 9speed comes only in white but 7speed in many colors including white. Since i could get the same price on both (at everythingbagel.com) after deciding that i can live with white color (although i would have preferred almond color, because it tends to look clean even if its not) so i went for the 9speed one.

just got it today

the handle is very comfortable, this may seem unimportant, but it is in fact very important when u have to hold the mixer for minutes on end.
the buttons do not get in the way but just in case your'e extra clumsy there is a power on/off switch on the side to prevent you from inadvertently starting the mixer.
the back of the unit is very wide and flat ( a bit concave in fact ) so the unit is very stable when you put it on its back -- this is very convenient because you don't have to take the beaters out to do this.
just like my kitchenaid bar blender this unit is an order of magnitude quieter that the one it replaces; i don't know how they do it but i suspect brushless motors, in any case, this is NOT an incremental difference its like night and day, like an air conditioner versus a leaf blower.
the singer had all 5 speeds pretty much the same, in this kitchenaid you actually get a nice progression from VERY slow on first 2 or 3 speeds to kinda fast on the last 2 or 3; the low speeds are great for avoiding spattering.
i think i could have used a higher speed in position 9 but the low end of the range fully covered for sure :)

just one final warning though, the only accessories you get out of the box are one pair of "turbo" beaters and one whisk beater; although they are quality stainless steel ones (better than chromed ones because chrome can and will chip and expose non-stainless steel which will rust) you may want to have additional attachments such as one for dough and while they are all available from Kitchenaid they are not exactly dirt-cheap :) make sure to find out how much any accessory attachments that you will need cost, and add that price to the price of mixer itself.
