Awesome hand mixer for small batches of batter! I bought this in a set with other attachments (dough hooks, egg beater etc). So far, for the amount I make, this hand mixer get the job done efficiently! The speed adjustment is very easy and smooth and it has a safety feature in which you cannot eject the handles when you are currently using one of the five speeds. I would definitely recommend this mixer to those who make small batches of things.
