Yes, you can buy an imported hand crank egg beater much cheaper. You will likely discover in very short time that they will bind, jerk, and create splash outs because they are made out of such thin metal gears they just don’t work very well.
Each beater comes with a one year warranty, after that the company will still fix your Country Egg Beater at a very minimal cost.
USA Amish American Made.
