The Farberware Classic Fountain Mixer's single-speed mixing drive is perfect for making quick shakes and smoothies. Its chrome-plated, heavy base is solid enough to stabilize the single-whip mixer as it froths up your favorite drinks. The mixer's on/off switch is triggered when the cup is placed on the cup bracket and makes contact with the switch. Though the large, stainless-steel mixing cup can hold more, avoid filling it beyond the recommended 12 ounces to avoid having your liquid splatter out as you mix your drink; cleanup is quick and simple, allowing for additional rounds in no time. .
