Professional chefs have long sung the praises of the KitchenAid stand mixer. Now, KitchenAid has designed a product specifically for the home baker with this nine-speed hand mixer. Its digital display shows the selected speed, providing precision control, while an electronic sensor works with the powerful yet lightweight motor to maintain that speed in any mixture, heavy to light. Designed with nonclogging air vents, the mixer is easy to clean because smooth, sleek surfaces have no seams or grooves that trap ingredients. The mixer comes with traditional beaters, a pro whisk attachment for fluffier mixes, and a one-year warranty. --Linda Dahlstrom

Has anyone here repaired one of these mixer him/herself?
Bought from Amazon ($59) August 24, 06. Died August 30, 09. Hadn't used it in 2 months when I took it out and nothing.... no display, dead. Two days later it lit up and worked... once and never again. So I conclude it's the digital control unit.
Well, I emailed KitchenAid and they said being it was over one year that all they'd do was sell me a refurbished for $27. I don't know if that includes shipping.
Went to Fred Myers and bought an Oster 2534 for $20 and for backup the Hamiton Beach Walmart had on sale for $10.
I hate to sound my age or wax poetic over the past BUT back then when you bought an appliance you never gave a thought to it failing to work long and hard. It was a given. I still have an Electrolux canister vacuum that beats any canister around. I inherited it in 1973.
From what I understand you can not repair your own KA hand mixer because "Parts not sold separately. Must be purchased as a complete unit".
I can't find the digital control unit for sale anywhere. Has anyone here repaired one of these mixer him/herself? I'm not going to just throw this thing in the trash can.
We were thinking of getting a KA stand mixer, classic or Artisan, but not now. Bad quality, short warranty, no parts.
I must say, I'm disappointed. I expected a heck of a lot more. My last one lasted 17 yrs. and it was the cord that failed. I would of fixed it but decided to treat myself to a fancy top of the line mixer. This KA is made in China btw. Price is no longer an indication of quality.
Oh and good luck with KA's website. It's awful. You have to have flash installed or forget it. The HTML (non-flash) site doesn't work for me. AND I can not find a list of authorized service centers. Anybody?
I'm waiting on their email, again.

FIRST REVIEW 12/29/2009
Purchased on 12/13/2009
I have just bought this hand mixer and have used it a couple of times for baking. I make cakes and mix icing. So far it has been good. This is my first mixer. I did a lot of research online and decided to get this. I was thinking of buying Cuisinart but since this one was my first I thought lets go with the highest reviews. Ok getting to the point
1. Easy to operate and very light weight.
2. Ergonomic structure and is not so tiring to hold. Can easily hold for more than 10-20 Min at a stretch.
3. Great for mixing dry ingredients at low speeds, speed 1 being the best.
4. High speed is very good too. Formed stiff peaks in eggs in less then 2 Min.
5. If you don't want lot of air in your mixed up ingredients you can use the low speeds till 3. I used it to form a smooth butter-cream without air.
1. It wobbles a little in your hand. But then its I guess because of its light weight. So I am not bothered about it much.
Well I haven't mixed cookie dough so I am not sure if it will do that. And its pretty new so is good right now. I haven't used any other before except for my mom's when I was a kid. So I am unable to compare it with any other hand mixer or any other mixer for that matter. For a first time buy it seems good. And its a space saver as I live in an apartment and the rest you know. I will update this review as I use it so that this will be more helpful.
UPDATE REVIEW 5/03/2011
Duration of use 1 year 6 months
After 1 and a half year of regular use, Its still performing well. I mixed everything from butter cream, cake batter to fondant and gum paste (equivalent to cookie dough), and it hasn't died or burned on me. But then I have been careful. I don't mix the entire fondant with it. I mix it a little until it forms a soft dough ball and then mix by hand. And when I suspect a burning smell, I stop using immediately. But as a hand mixer, I think its perfect. And hand mixers aren't supposed to be used for cookie dough and the likes of it.
Still going good.
UPDATE REVIEW 06/13/2013
Used for 3 Years
I have been using this hand mixer on and off for the past three years and its still working good. Though using less recently as I finally bought a kitchen aid stand mixer. But I would recommend anyone to buy this. I have put this mixer through a lot. And it can mix cookie dough, at least until it forms a ball. I am sure if you hand knead a little, you can use it for mixing cookie dough too. I have used it to mix bread dough too, but I first use it to mix the dry ingredients and flavors and then add the liquid part. Then as soon as it forms a ball, I use my hand to knead it the rest of the way. Always use the lower speeds for things like cookie dough and bread dough. As I said b4 its not meant for such things.(Those are for the stand mixers.)
So I give it five stars. And a thumbs up.

You get what you pay for. This is superb buy. Fast strong speed and no wobbled beaters on highest speed. Strong smooth motor, handles easily. If your a baker, you need this mixer. I had to buy and return 4 other mixers to find one good enough to replace my old KA that lasted 18 years. ( It's a shame KA doesn't sell parts for it for the unit and motor is still strong.. ) this one is great though so now I can give up the chase for a replacement. So happy with it.
