We don’t have a hand mixer. I usually am able to substitute the stand mixer, but for a recipe at xmas I couldn’t make that work. I was able to borrow this mixer from a neighbor. It has this cool container for all the parts (beaters, dough hooks, and a whisk) and the cord which I think is awesome.
But don’t let the handle on top fool you… you can not carry the whole lot by that handle. The plastic bit is just barely attached an it will all tumble to the ground!
Well, TheMisterT needed an hand mixer recently, so we borrowed it again! So, I decided to look into getting one for us and it turns out this exact model was highly rated by reputable sources.
I found a like-new one on Ebay for about half the price of new (including shipping) and jumped on it! I knew he would never remember to pick up by the base (nor would I!), so I decided to fashion some kind of strap for it and give him the whole set up for his spring birthday.
The poison labels print is for him and the cute kitchen bowls print is for our neighbor - she can’t stand that base issue!
The buttons and buttonholes are supported a little extra with fusible interfacing.
They are entirely from stash including vintage buttons from the 4-generation button tin and the liner fabrics that I received when I friend de-stashed last year. YEY!
