I have had this mixer for some time now and wish I had returned it to Argos earlier. I have run out of guarantee time. The actual beaters do not stay in. I have tried so many times and it is hopeless. I love the idea of three beaters but it just doesnt work. Is this bad design or my bad luck? Thank goodness I still have my old (nearly thirty years) Kenwood hand mixer.I have mislaid instruction leaflet for the Anthony Worrall Thompson one and would like to get a copy, but cant find one to...

My mother bought this mixer as she is disabled and unable to hold the mixer for long periods of time. The bowl will not go round therefor does not mix the ingredients.

Avoid this Hand Mixer at ALL costs! Spend a bit more to ensure quality.
I'm an "up and coming" wannabe chef (!) and thought I'd start out small and cheap with my hand mixers.
Only needed it to whisk up cake mixtures etc initially, so thought this would be perfect for the task at hand.
Upon first use however it is pretty easily understandable why this mixer is SO ridiculously cheap!
It even warns you not to use the Turbo Button for more than 30 seconds!
Although there are five variable speeds... (read more)
