You don't need one of these. My family has had one all my life. It takes forever to whip cream or egg whites. Then I went to my Aunt's house, and saw my Uncle use an egg beater and it was SO much faster. Get an egg beater. I'm sure they are less expensive too. Well, I would like to refraise that. My Aunt has an old one that works great, but we have one that doesn't work at all for whipping cream. It depends on the egg beater.
