Hey, All!

I am seeking recommendations on a new hand mixer. I want something powerful but not as big as a rotary saw. I had a great GE, with a retractable cord, but it died on me. I can't find another like it, so I'm leaving it up to all of you.

I have my mother's old BrAun 220 Watt hand mixer. The thing is about 20 years old (she got it as a wedding gift), has three speeds and works GREAT! I've even dropped the poor thing on the floor and had the guts spill out of it, taped it together and the thing still runs like new! BrAun all the way for me.

I got a 9 speed KA hand mixer on one of their online sales. I paid for it what I would have paid for a 7 speed in the store and didn't have shipping added to it. The 9 speed comes with dough hooks and a whisk.

My mom has the 7 speed and it works great as well. I even had a 5 speed for years and used it for buttecream and royal icing.
