You change the speed via a scroll, and the new level will appear on the digital screen. At high speeds, the mixer remains steady and doesn't fly out of your hand around the bowl. It even has the ability to sense the specific attachment you're using (whisk, beater, hook) and calibrates its speed settings to fit the specific task.
