All the buttons are placed on top of the hand mixer, so you can quickly push them with one hand and mix ingredients with one another. Removing beaters is quick and simple thanks to the One-Touch eject system.

This is a durable product. It does not break down easily as some models do. It also has an ergonomic design with a powerful 5-speed motor (250-watts) that never disappoints.

The Oster 2500 Inspire is both relatively inexpensive and powerful, a great combination for the average consumer looking for a heavy-duty hand mixer. With five different mixing speeds and powerful motor, this hand mixer is sure to please when you need to mix ingredients that would challenge less-formidable units.

The 5-speed control allows for versatility and the Burst of Power feature allows for extra power at the touch of a button. After mixing easily remove the beaters or dough hooks with the one touch beater eject. This hand mixer has an ergonomically designed handle for comfort while mixing.

What experts didn't like
Appliance is difficult to stand up and easy to knock over. A history of coated beater/whisk "flaking."

The one design flaw the Oster 2500 Inspire does have is that it tips over easily. Most hand mixers stand steadily on their square base when not in use, but this mixer struggles in that department.
