I purchased this hand mixer as a Christmas gift to myself and am very glad I did! I had a 39-year-old Hamilton Beach hand mixer (which still runs), but wanted something lighter weight and easier to handle. I love that the Cuisinart is lightweight and that the cord swivels, but you do have to be careful starting out (as mentioned in other reviews) as the power comes on high, then immediately backs off. I also like that the cord and beaters pack away easily, and I don't have to hunt for the beaters in my messy drawers. I do wish, though, it had a minute countdown feature, but that is something I can live without. Overall, I love it! Let's hope it lasts 39 years!
