1.0 out of 5 stars Unfaithful in Maine 9 Feb 2011
By M. Feldman - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Dear old KitchenAid hand mixer,
It's true that I doubted you. That jazzy red Bodum caught my eye, with its retractable cord and colorful housing. Yes, I strayed.

Unlike you, dear KitchenAid, that Bodum turned out to be all looks and no performance. In the hand it feels clunky and out of balance. The retracting cord turns out to be attached to a crank, awkward to use and hardly an improvement. The cover on the speed button fell off immediately. And when I asked it to cream some butter for cookies, those Bodum beaters just couldn't handle it. All it wanted to do was sit on the counter and look pretty.

So. old KitchenAid, take me back, will you? I promise not to replace you. And when your final day comes, I swear I'll choose another just like you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Freshman Mixer... 22 Sep 2011

Established chefs may want something a little more oomphy, say one of those Kitchen Aid things that look big enough to mix concrete, but for those of us who aren't into the heavy kitchen lifting, this attractive mixer from Bodum more than fills the bill.

It's lightweight, so your arm does not ache from holding it. It has five speeds, enough to go from mixing up a cake batter, whipping cream or eggwhites to mashing potatoes or kneading bread dough. Today we mixed up a cake from scratch (orange spice...use any spice cake recipe, replace half of the liquid with freshly squeezed orange juice and quite a lot of orange zest, bake as usual. Serve with cream cheese frosting, sprinkle on more zest. Easy and pretty and good). Yesterday it was biscuit dough. Tomorrow, who knows...meringue? Of course this frenzy will be over soon...you know what it's like when you're in the New Appliance Honeymoon Stage.

The Bodum Mixer comes with a breadhook attachment which will come in handy when pigs fly, one single beater, and one double, so you can tackle a variety of mixing chores. The cord is retractable and although some reviwers found its cranking mechanism unwieldy, I'm not having a problem. They also felt the cord was too short, but again, I don't see it. What, you're making babka and suddenly feel an overwhelming urge to hike to Yemen and take the mixer with you?

All in all, this could be a Kitchen Survivor and avoid exile with the pasta maker, fondue set (they told me fondue parties were coming back), George Foreman grill, In The Egg Egg Scrambler (go ahead, say it), and some big stainless steel cylinder--it has a pour spout and clear lid, and the bottom spins around. That's all it does as far as I can see, except emit a burning odor and trip the circuit breakers when I plug it in. Must have been one heck of an infomercial though.

If you want a good, basic mixer that does all the basic tasks, doesn't take up too much space and is easy store, looks nice, has well thought out features, versatility and utility, I don't see how you can do much better than the Bodum Bistro Electric 5 Speed Hand Mixer.

1.0 out of 5 stars Jackson Pollock on your kitchen walls AHHHHH! 16 Oct 2011
By P. Cannon - Published on Amazon.com

I really needed a good hand mixer and thought this was going to be the one. Here is why it wasn't:

#1- It is very large and clunky and not at all well balanced. It is over 2.6 pounds, I think it's more cumbersome than my mothers old 1950's Oster!

#2- It is very noisy. It starts out OK for a brief second and then sounds like it's grinding rocks, really loud annoying sound. My husband said it was the cooling fan coming on but it was a grinding sound like it was going to rattle apart.

#3-I tried to cream butter and sugar and within seconds a good third of it was thrown all over the counter and up the walls. I tried a very large tall bowl and the same thing happened. There is no low setting at all, when you turn it on it goes from high speed to warp speed in 5 useless settings shooting food all over the kitchen. I have to wonder if the maker of this mixer has ever baked anything!

#4-The mixer comes with dough hooks which I found amusing. The power is so high I would have concern for my wrists holding on to it. Who makes bread with a hand mixer anyway, just silly! I think this would have been better suited for mixing concrete in a bucket maybe they should market it with longer beaters for that purpose. Bodem, stick to the intended purpose of a hand mixer and don't try to make it something it is not. It also comes with a little whisk which threw eggs right out of the bowl too! Way too high power right off the bat this desperately needs low settings to be useful.

#5- I liked the idea of the retractable cord but it takes a lot of turns to get it back inside. Not to much to complain about there I still liked this feature even though it takes some time to retract it fully it's better then a lose cord.

I could have lived with the weight and cumbersome size but the noise and NO low speed makes this completely useless to a home baker. Bodem, put a couple low speeds on this mixer and you might have a descent product, warp speed is just not necessary in a hand mixer and you always need to start on low or everything flies out of the bowl.

4.0 out of 5 stars The "in between" tool for my kitchen 28 Sep 2011
By Eric L. Fletcher - Published on Amazon.com
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Having loved all of the Bodum items I have bought before this, I thought this was a worthy product to try out. I have a KitchenAid stand mixer KitchenAid K45SS Classic 250-Watt 4-1/2-Quart Stand Mixer, White which should be your first purchase in this area. For small specialty jobs I also have an immersion blender (especially good for soups and sauces) KitchenAid KHB100OB Hand Blender, Onyx Black.

This unit is my "in-between" unit perfect for using when I don't want to bother having to clean up the stand mixer after a small job, or for using in a crowded kitchen for just one dish (think holiday meals which the entire family migrates to the kitchen). Also great for when I have two (or more) things cooking at once and the stand mixer is taken up.

The small size and clever retractable cord make this the perfect "in-between" mixing unit. Its super easy to store, and doesn't take up as much room as many other hand mixing units. I particularly liked that it came with a nice wisk attachment which made the unit much more useful than if it came with the beaters alone. The dough hooks however seem to be rather unlikely to be useful given the power and size of the hand mixer. That really is a stand mixer job.

At the discounted Amazon price, this is a good value for a easily stored hand mixer from a proven company like Bodum. Just make sure you are buying it for the jobs it is good at and not as a replacement for a proper stand mixer.

4.0 out of 5 stars After a run-in time, no problems 22 Sep 2011
By Doug Hibbard - Published on Amazon.com
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The first time I plugged in my Bodum, the motor smelled a little like it was a burning. However, it has not continued to do that, and the mixer runs without any difficulty, so I'm thinking it was just dust from shipping and sitting on a shelf.

Overall, the mixer does claim to have 5 speeds, but I honestly can't tell you how much difference there is between 2-4. There's an obvious difference from 1 to 5. I'm no pastry chef, so I'm not in need of great degrees of subtly here, so that's not a problem. I know to start slow and speed up and this has been fine for that.

The mixer itself feels well-balanced, though the rubber surface does feel strange. That it's non-skid is handy, as I have kids learning to cook in my kitchen. Anything that's less likely to slip, slide, or fall is good.

The cord-reel system is clunky. I like the storage, but the fold-out handle has proven less than helpful. It's actually easier for me to just crank the whole bottom of the mixer and wind the cord up.

The white isn't a super-bright white, so I'm not concerned about scratches. Plus, it's rubberized. If you can visibly tear that up, you probably need something on the industrial side.

Included are a single whisk, paired dough hooks, and paired traditional mixer blades. All three do the job as commanded.

So far, it just works. That's what I'm after in an appliance. It's not ugly, so if I leave it out on the counter, that's not bad (and it matches in appearance my Bodum Water Kettle), but it's about function. So far, so good.
