Yep, that was rated very well ... I wasn't able to find it locally and tried the Oster. MISTAKE!

What do you use your hand mixer for?

My guess, and this is just a guess, is that it would not replace the hand mixer.

I use it maybe, at most, a few times a year to mix cookie dough or cake dough that is about it. And I always make a mess using it. It has dough attachments but I have never ever used them. I have a bread machine and dough attachments for the FP.
Space is at such a premium, I am thinking I have no justification on keeping it with so few uses. 10 years old and it looks brand new...most times I need to mix something I just use the whisks, wooden spoon or spatulas instead of hauling it out.

I have this one (it was a gift). Thankfully, he spent far less than that at LNT w/coupon! I apologize in advance - I haven't posted many links and it surely won't be pretty.

I have a Cuisinart hand mixer also. I do use it for little mixing jobs that are too small for the KA, but I haven't for a long while.

I don't have a whisk for my hand blender, so I keep the hand mixer just in case. Just in case of what I do not know........I just figure if I get rid of it, that is when I will need it.

You can spend all kinds of money on immersion blenders. I paid $20 for a Braun 200 watt with attachments at Costco. If you shop around you may get a better price for a brand name.

Mav, hold out for a $20 immersion blender ... and perhaps you could sell your hand mixer on ebay and be a bit ahead of the game, especially if it's like new! Don't give up on your FP just yet, space hog or not, the minute you do, you'll want it back (speaking from experience).

Not sure who makes this one, but it's $30 and I know there's a 30% off code for Kohl's on fatwallet.com! :)

alright, I give up ... I guess you'll have to search for the biggest loser hand blender if you are interested. Not sure why the deep fryer comes up when I copy and paste the link in my browser into the message box. Was really trying to help.
