Promising review: "I bought this mixer based on people saying it had a good low speed, and it does. My old mixer's speeds were high, super-high, and bat-out-of-hell. To counter what others have said about the mixer's high speed seeming like medium, we put it to the tachometer test. Yes, the BF has a tachometer, so we hooked it up to the mixers. In the tachometer test, the old mixer's low speed started at 1050 rpm, with the highest speed being 1250 rpm — not a lot of range. This KitchenAid 5-Speed's low speed was a nice mellow 260 rpm; second speed was 450 rpm, then 650, 800, and 1100 rpm respectively. The thing is, even at the high speed, it's very quiet, and doesn't sound like a jet engine about to take off, so I believe it *sounds* like a lower speed, but it's more than enough to whip cream, egg whites, or whatever else you want that high speed for." —badcat
