Hand Mixers Coming Up

A few months ago I wrote a blog about various stand mixers that were up for auction at the time, but I did not yet write about the many hand-mixers DealDash.com now has coming up for auction.

Now I see several new hand mixers coming up for auction on DealDash and the BIN for hand mixers is much lower than it was for stand mixers. Not everyone can afford to buy a stand mixer, but hand mixers are much more affordable. Therefore, if you are looking for an affordable hand mixer, this is the time to start shopping for one.

These hand mixers come in various brand names with a low BIN of $46 for a 6-speed hand mixer, $53 for a 5-speed hand mixer and a BIN of $89 for a 9-speed hand mixer. They also come in a variety of colors.

Let’s take a look at these hand mixers.

6-speed hand mixer

The black 6-speed hand mixer with a BIN of $46 comes with 6 attachments and a snap on case. The attachments include twisted wire beaters, milkshake mixer, dough hooks and whisk.

This hand mixer has a powerful 290-watt peak power motor. One unique feature of this mixer is that it has a pulse function on the slowest speed for “less mess and added control” according to the DealDash description.

This mixer has only received two reviews, but it has an overall perfect rating of 5.00 out of a possible 5.00 so far.

5-speed hand mixer

This 5-Speed Hand Mixer with a BIN of $53 comes with 2-stainless steel Turbo beater accessories and it has a 6.5-foot lockable swivel cord, which allows freedom of motion during use.

As a fairly new auction item, which comes in red and black, it only has 4 reviews but has an overall perfect review of 5.0 out of 5.0 so far.

9-speed hand mixer

This 220-watt, white 9-speed hand mixer with a BIN of $89 comes with an awesome snap on storage case. The case holds all of the attachments including beaters, chef’s whisk, dough hooks, spatula and recipe book.

A special feature of this hand-held mixer is that it has a smooth start feature with a 9-speed LED display. 

The bottom line

For more specific information, see the product descriptions in the auction listings. Any one of these hand-held mixers would make any baker happy. They would also make wonderful wedding and Christmas gifts.

Let’s all shop for the hand-held mixer of our choice.

A Work Light Might Be the Perfect Gift

DealDash.com is the perfect place to shop for the perfect gift. It is not too early to start shopping for that “perfect gift” because Christmas is not that far away.

To me, the perfect gift is something that gets used time and time again instead of just taking up space on the back shelf of someone’s house. DealDash has plenty of auction products that fit this description.

One product that grabbed my attention is something that would provide the perfect hands-free lighting when working on many different projects.

Dual detachable work light bar

Have you ever become frustrated while working under the hood of your motor vehicle and you did not have enough light? Well, you will have no more dark spots once you have this 1200 Lumen Magnetic Dual Detachable Work-light Bar. That problem will be eliminated.

This handy-dandy light can shine light in any direction and at any angle, so you can have the light you need whenever and wherever you need it. It is made with military-grade aluminum and three magnet mechanisms will allow you to position the light and then remain hands-free to do the work that needs to be done. This light consists of two parts that are fully detachable and it features two on/off buttons. Pressing the button twice will switch to a duller light.

It measures 40.15 x 2.36 x 2.36-inches and comes with a certified charger and USB cable and tripod. It can be charged in 4 to 5 hours, and the two parts can be charged simultaneously when connected. The working time after each charge is about 3 hours (at 50 percent mode) or about 1.5 hours (at 100 percent mode).

This work-light bar has a BIN of $320. However, many previous shoppers have already won this product at bargain prices. For example:

  • Sept. 14, this work-light bar sold at $1.54. The winner paid a total of $6.51 including the cost of the 31 bids placed.

  • Aug. 22, this work-light bar sold at $5.89. The winner paid a total of only $6.94 including the cost of the 20 bids placed.

We can see from the above examples that it’s possible for us to win this 1200 Lumen Magnetic Dual Detachable Work-light Bar at a fantastic bargain price.

Customer reviews

Put a Flamingo in Your Yard

Sometimes new products come up for auction on DealDash.com that immediately catch my eye, and the hand-made 23-inch iron pink Flamingo is one of them.

How would you like to decorate your yard with this beautiful pink flamingo?

In this age of high technology, having anything that is hand-made is becoming more rare and special than ever. Now is our chance to win this hand-made yard decoration.

Flamingos are iconic and beautiful birds, Visit DealDash and you might have a beautiful flamingo sculpture in your yard soon!

This flamingo has a BIN of $2,060. So far, however, 14 of the 15 previous winners paid far less than that. The three best deals DealDash shoppers got on this beautiful pink flamingo so far are:

  • Sept. 10, this auction sold for $3.50 and the winner paid a total of $27.45 including the cost of the 132 bids placed;
  • Sept. 7, the flamingo sold for $11.32 and the winner paid a total of $58/46 including the cost of the 264 bids placed;

Sculpture process

It takes skilled welders with 8 years of experience 3 days to create these iron sculptures. According to the auction description, “The iron is first cut to the particular shape and size, and then welded together for assembly. The welded iron is then polished until smooth and treated by a special electrophoresis powder to prevent rusting. The sculpture is then painted and jeweled to bring out the individual characteristics.”

In the end, the iron flamingo stands 23 x8 x5 inches.

A brief history of flamingos

The word “flamingo” comes from the Latin and Spanish for “fire.”

Flamingos are the national bird of the Bahamas, and the greater flamingo is the largest of the flamingo species. They can measure up to 5-feet tall, and an adult flamingo’s legs can be 30-to-50-inches long – longer than its entire body. Their nests are made of mud.

There are six flamingo species and a group of flamingos is called flamboyance. A baby flamingo is called “flaminglet.”

Flamingos are filter feeders and turn their heads upside down to eat. They get their pink color from their food.

Flamingos symbolize beauty, balance and grace, but their pink color can be used to symbolize femininity and flirtatious innocence.

According to my research online, flamingos are serially monogamous. They mate for one year, get divorced and find a new mate the next year. New mates are mutually agreed upon. Males and females both dance in search of a compatible partner.

Flamingos are more stable for long periods of time on one leg than they are on two, and according to Dr. Paul Rose, zoologist at the University of Exeter, they stand on one leg to avoid muscular fatigue. Standing on one leg also helps flamingos to preserve and regulate body temperature.

Some flamingos have lived as long as 50 years, but usually live an average of 20 to 30 years.

The bottom line

DealDash is a great place to shop to win an awesome bargain on these handmade flamingo yard decorations.

Book Lover’s Delight

Do you have any friends or family members who are avid readers and book lovers? If so, you might want to look for my new book on DealDash.com – “That’s Life: In Poetry and Short Stories.” It is sure to become a book lover’s delight.

The cover of ''That's Life'', by Barbara Sellers.
That’s Life makes a great gift for any reader on your gift list.

Perhaps you are already a fan after reading my first book, “Get Tough or Die: Why I Forgave My Parents for My Abusive Childhood.” That was a very difficult subject to write about and also difficult subject for some readers to handle. In spite of the tough subject matter, 189 DealDash customers gave that book an overall rating of 4.91 out of a possible 5.0.

If you liked that book, you will probably like “That’s Life In Poetry and Short Stories” even more. The first half of the book is poetry and the second half has 10 of my short stories and one short story by a guest writer. Like my first book, I included several photos.

Poems

The poems in my book are divided into various categories according to subject matter. For instance, I have love poems, religious poems, family poems and poems about the seasons, character sketches and life in general called “That’s Life.”  Therefore, you might say I included poems for all occasions.

Some of the poems are humorous and some are serious, but all of the poems are easy to understand and enjoy.

Short stories

Nine of the 10 short stories I included in my book are true. They are The Forbidden Rock, Orgie the Friendly Bull, A Special Kind of Lipstick, Risky Dating, Calling Long Distance, Microphone Dilemma, The Power of Prayers, Missed Opportunities and Real Crazy Job Experiences. My short story called Another Life, Another time is fiction. These short stories are a mixture of humor and serious subject matter.

I also got permission to include a short story by my guest writer titled, Mrs. Whatchamacallit, by Ret. Lt. Col. Don Sellers.

The bottom line

Perhaps you missed the first two times my new book “That’s Life In Poetry and Short Stories” went up for auction and both winners received an awesome bargain. Perhaps the next bargain could be yours.

Happy reading everyone!
