FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Question: Why is my hand mixer not working?
Answer: The hand mixer may not be plugged in or the speed has not been selected. Check the mixer is plugged in and switched on. Move the speed switch up a setting.
Question: Why are the beaters struggling to rotate?
Answer: The mixture is too thick, add more liquid. If your recipe states otherwise, your mixture cannot be mixed with the hand mixer. You may need to soften the ingredients or chop them into smaller pieces before further mixing.
