This distinctive hand mixer looks like an authentic retro model but performs with modern 220-watt power that can handle anything from the densest cookie dough to the most delicate whipped cream. It has an easy-to-use seven speeds, which is essential because a single baking recipe can call for different speeds for beating eggs, creaming sugar, or smoothing a batter. Anyone who has ever put a too-fast beater into a mixture will appreciate the SmoothStart feature which has three low mixing speeds to eliminating splattering. The beater eject lever pops out the extra-long self cleaning beaters, which are also dishwasher safe. A swivel cord makes it easy for left- and right-handed cooks to use. Included recipe/instruction book and spatula. Limited three-year warranty.
