Advantages: Small and easy to store
Disadvantages: Short shelf life
I had had this product for a while and was getting on ok with it. The mixing bowl is tiny so could never make anything of significance but it did the job. I went to use it one day after having had it for about a year and it was dead. Changed the fuse nothing. Changed it again, still nothing. It had just died on me. Now, I have may have been unlucky so I'll review the other features
Design - small, compact, easy store, easy to use, looks good. Fits in the hand nicely and the interchangeable heads are bery easy to swap about. The unit sits comfortably in your hand and is easy to control. The main unit is actually quite heavy so you do need to have a good grip on it.
Value - I expected more for my money. The product has not lasted well and I therefore consider it to be very poor value. The fully ice when I purchased it was £50. For that amount I really did expect a lot more.
Usage - good while it lasted but the mixing bowl is small. You can only complete very small tasks in this and would stand no chance of mixing a cake or anything similar. The whisk attachment worked very well and you can obviously use at in a larger bowl if needed.
Summary: Died on me :(
