15 Best Hand Held Mixers
Breville BHM800SIL Hand Mixer
[THE MOST EXPENSIVE] This is a Breville Hand Mixer. About Breville, I think most of you familiar most are their espresso machine. It publishes other kinds of kitchen appliances too.
Let’s talk back to this hand mixer. The motor is a powerful 240 watt DC motor for quiet operation and high torque at low speed.
It equipped with the Beater IQ technology that can detect the type of attachment you have inserted and adjust the optimal speed for you.
When you are whisking cream or kneading dough, the mixer will detect which attachment you are using and recalibrate to the desired speed automatically.
The beaters of this mixer are very special. The head of the beaters is wrapped with rubber. Its rubber scraper beater can maximize contact with the bowl and minimize the sound at the same time.
Your kitchen will have no clinging or clanging any more. It is a truly quite scraper beater. It can ensure all the ingredients for more thorough mixing.
The built-in count-up timer lets you done the mixing precisely. So you can accurately control the recipes.
This mixer has 9 speeds control and boosts speed function.
Ergonomic handle design provides you a comfortable operation environment and creates a natural hand position. It let you forget the tired.
The attachments include 2 scraper beater, 2 dough hooks, and 2 ballon whisks.
The part I like most is the detachable storage compartment house. It let you keep all the attachments and the cord together in one place. You no need to worry about where you put the attachments in the drawer and find them for a long time each time you want to use them.
Hamilton Beach 62682RZ Hand Mixer with Snap-On Case
[TOP PICK]This is a 6-speed hand mixer with burst function for additional power at any speed. A 250 watt AC motor inside the unit provides the mixer enough power for what you need.
If you want to take a break, build in bowl rest on the bottom make it easier rest the mixer in the bowl without making the table messy and dirty. You can study the recipe or add additional ingredients slowly without any rush.
It comes with various attachments that you’re going to need right inside, from traditional beaters to wire beaters, whisks, and milkshake attachments.
I like the snap-on storage case because it can store everything into the case including all the attachments even the cord. Just wrap the cord and put everything inside. You no need to dig through the cabinet to find your mixer attachments again and again. It saves time and saves space.
The cord is about 6.5 feet long. I think it’s long enough for most of the users. Those speed controls and the burst button are located on the top.
Be careful. Never want to touch when the mixer turns on as it will get your fingers stuck down.
It has included two traditional beaters which allow turning dough to make pizza and cakes. The wire beaters are really great for fluffing up the cream and making mixed drinks with it. It’s also great.
KitchenAid KHM7210CU 7-Speed Digital Hand Mixer
[EDITOR CHOICE] The most special feature of the KitchenAid 7-speed digital display hand mixer is the soft start features that can prevent ingredients from splattering. When you first turn it on, it will start slowly and increased the speed gradually to your selected speed.
With this function, you no need to worry about the flour or whipped cream going everywhere again.
The grey part under the handle there is a soft grip. It makes you easy to hold and feel comfortable while mixing. The mixer uses a DC motor, so it’s lightweight and powerful. Importantly, it’s quiet and easy to use.
It has 7 speeds on the top where you can control everything with just a flick of your thumb. You can turn it on and off. There is an up arrow and a down arrow that let you change the speed. You can do it without even looking. Just flick your thumb.
Eject the whisk is easy too. On top, there is a nice big button. Just press that with a thumb to remove any accessory from the hand mixer.
If you going to use the other beaters, beware there are two holes. One is large and the other one is small. Please insert the right beater into the correct hole. The reason for this is to prevent the beater will not fight against each other so it can work perfectly.
The lockable swivel cord in the bottom can be locked into the left or right side of the mixer. It’s very convenient for you to mix the ingredient from any angle.
VonShef Electric Hand Mixer Whisk With Stainless Steel Attachments
All the buttons located on the top of the mixer. They are the eject button, speed button, and turbo button. You can control the mixer with only one thumb which means the mixer is easy and convenient to use
If you want to change the attachment, just use your thumb and press the biggest button with the name eject on the top. If you want extra power to mix the ingredient, just move your thumb to the turbo button. Change the speed is also simple, move the button from left to right to increase power, move to the left to decrease power.
There is some suggestion about the speed. If you plan to whip the cream and egg white, use speed 5 will be better which the highest speed is. A slower speed is suitable for stirring gravies and mashing vegetables.
The cord comes with 1m long. It’s long enough to let you mix the ingredient at any angle on the counter.
It comes with 2 stainless steel beaters, 2 stainless steel dough hooks, and 1 stainless steel balloon whisk. All the attachments are dishwasher safe.
You can use the dough hooks to mix the dough and heavier cake easily. The beaters are perfect for whisking egg whites, creaming ingredients, and for light cake mixtures or batters.
BLACK+DECKER Lightweight Hand Mixer, White, MX1500W
[BUDGET PRODUCT] This is a BLACK+DECKER Lightweight Hand Mixer with white color. It has 5 speeds and a power boost function to increase the speed for the toughest mixing task. The 175 watt AC motor inside the mixer provides enough power for the mixer to start slow and finish fast.
Unlike some of the other mixers, it comes with two professional-style beaters only. It can work through all kinds of batters, sauces, and dough. 5 mixing speed lets you do any job done quickly. The beaters are easy to remove and dishwasher-safe.
Its lightweight feature lets you use it for a long time with ease. The ergonomic grip also provides you with a comfortable operation. Let you enjoy the operation all the time and forget tired.
The heel and bowl rest design is also great. When you want to take a rest or read the recipe in more detail, you can just rest upright on the counter or site on the edge of the bowl.
The intuitive design lets you no need to care how to keep the counter clean. As you know, some of the mixers can not rest upright like this.
As a busy mummy, you know, you have to take care of everything that suddenly happen in the house.
This mixer itself does not have any storage space to keep the beater and the cord. If you don’t know to find the beaters in your drawer for a long time, you have to keep them in a good place that easy to remember and easy to find.
The eject button is with the speed button, you can see it at a glance. It can eject the beaters without getting your hands dirty.
Hamilton Beach 62620 6-Speed Snap-on Case Hand Mixer
This is a Hamilton Beach 62620 6-Speed Snap-on Case Hand Mixer. As the name mention, this hand mixer comes with a snap-on case. I love this design. I think everyone has experience searching through the whole drawer for something you want.
Normally, we have many different appliances in the kitchen. It’s really hard to keep all the attachments neatly and keep it easy to find. I think this snap-on case can solve the problem. At least, for this hand mixer.
The most mysterious function of this hand mixer is the pulse function. I read the explanation of pulse function a few times. But, I still don’t understand what it means so I watched the official video a few times to understand.
Finally, I understand. When you are mixing the ingredients, if the speed is too fast, sometimes it will make a mess. But, if the speed is very slow, it gives you more control and prevents splattering.
How to do it? Just use your thumb to pull the speed control switch back to P, pulse control, and then the speed of the mixer will be very slow so you can combine the ingredients slowly. If you want to stop, just release the switch by moving the thumb away.
After mixing the ingredient, adjust to a higher speed as needed. If you want to burst the speed, just like other mixers, press and hold the burst button for additional power at any speed.
The bowl rest feature is my second love. If you want to take a rest and add ingredients, you can simply turn off the mixer and set the mixer on the edge of the bowl. The Bowl rest feature is not provided in all the mixers.
I think to stay the mixer in the bowl is always better than the counter. At least, it can prevent some drips to fall back.
It comes with 6 attachments included twisted wire beaters, milkshake mixer, dough hooks, and whisk.
BLACK+DECKER MX600B Helix Performance Premium 5-Speed Hand Mixer
The attachments come with 2 helix beaters, 2 dough hooks, 1 wire whisk, and a Snap-On storage case.
I love the snap-on storage case, it helps me keep all the attachment together in one place. With the sap-On storage case, I believe you no need to search through the drawer for the attachment each time.
This time, the beaters are not made of stainless steel. It’s made of reinforced nylon. With the nylon beater, your kitchen will have no clanging any more. If you already feel annoyed by the clanging when using a stainless steel beater, it is great news for you.
The advanced design maximizes the beater overlap. It provides a more fast and efficient mixing of batters, doughs, spreads, toppings, or anything you want.
This mixer provides the turbo boost function. Unlike the burst function of other function, when you press the turbo boost button, the mixer will increase the speed automatically to top speed for tough mixing tasks.
All the attachments are dishwasher safe. I think many busy mothers will prefer a dishwasher safe because it really saves time and reduces the load after making a nice dinner.
Cuisinart HM-50BK Power Advantage 5-Speed Hand Mixer
It comes with two beaters only. Not like others, some have 5 or 6 attachments.
The speed control located on the top of the mixer as usual. This time, the control is not a button, is not a switch. It’s a OneTouch slide control. You can control the speed easier and that’s a slow start feature as well.
One of the great features is the swivel cord. It’s suitable for both right-handed use and left-handed use. you can mix the ingredient at any angle by turning it.
If you want to take a rest or read the recipe, you can turn it off and sit upright on the counter to prevent the mess.
If you want to eject the attachment, it has the ejector just right under the handle. You can control the speed and eject with just one hand. It means it’s easy and convenient to use.
Take a look carefully at the beaters, there are slightly different, one has a collar and the other one doesn’t have. It makes sure you’re getting them in the right way into the hand mixer and lock it properly.
The nice chrome brand around outside. It makes the mixer look nicer.
Black, garnet, peridot, and white are available for you to choose from.
Hand Mixer Electric SHARDOR 300W Power and Slower Start Mixer
As you see in the image, the most special thing about this mixer is the storage base. For someone, it may be a convenience because you can insert all the beaters there. It’s tidy and easy to see.
But, in my opinion, it cannot help me to save space. It uses space on my counter. Unlike the storage box, this base can not keep everything together. When you put it in the drawer, it may hard to keep it together.
Next time, you may need some time to search the attachments in your drawer. So, I think the box is better.
It comes with 6 attachments, two beaters, two whisks, and two dough hooks. All are made of 304 stainless steel.
It has 5 speeds with no burst function. Only regular speed provided in this mixer. This mixer can also stand up if you want to take a rest or add the next ingredient.
The cord can be easily rotated and stored in the groove at the bottom.
If you buy this mixer, one thing needs to remember. The instruction says “It can be operated without interruption for a maximum of 3 minutes and should be allowed to cool down for approximately 30 seconds before the next operation.”
Do you like the instruction? Although the mixer has 300-watt power, it cannot use for a long time. I think it’s not good news for everyone.
Cuisinart HM-90BCS Power Advantage Plus 9-Speed Handheld Mixer with Storage Case
It comes with my lovely snap-on clear storage case. The attachments include an extra-long beater, chef’s whisk, dough hooks, and spatula. It is exceptionally easy to store because it’s already stored right inside in the translucent container that snaps right on the mixer.
You can see everything that’s locked inside when you go ahead and take it off. You’re going to find that it does store the actual mixer itself.
There is an eject button right under the handle. If you want to eject the attachment, it’s really easy for everyone without any learning.
I love the extra-long swivel cord actually can swivel from left to right so if you are a lefty, it’s really easy for you to use it as well. You can mix the ingredients at any angle as well.
There are 9 mixing speed options on top including and 3 extra-low start speeds to prevent ingredients from splattering on the countertop. The speeds are displayed on the LED on the top so you can get consistent results every single time.
The nice chrome brand is around outside. It makes the mixer look nicer.
All the attachments are dishwasher safe. I think this is good news for everyone who has a dishwasher at home.
KitchenAid KHM512BY 5-Speed Ultra Power Hand Mixer
That’s really awesome. This mixer has fourteen colors, boysenberry, cranberry, crystal blue, empire red, green apple, guava glaze, lavender, majestic yellow, orange, pink, tangerine, twilight blue, watermelon, and white.
Anyone wants to decorate your kitchen, this is a good choice.
This KitchenAid is the 5-speed ultra power hand mixer with the pro wire whisk but no burst function. It uses a DC motor. That’s super important because it’s lightweight, durable, and has a superpower.
The 5-foot long cord can lock into any position, either the left or right side of the mixer so you will never have any problems no matter you are lefty or righty. Your hand will never wrestle with that cord. You can approach the ingredients from any angle.
When you want to change the beater, just eject by the single-handed press of a button and put in the one you want. But, be careful, there are two holes.
There are little icons that show you how to do it. One hole is big and the other one is small. The big hole needs to use a beater with a collar. Don’t mix them up.
The mixer only comes with two beaters that are dishwasher safe. No storage box and no base.
Hamilton Beach 62692 Hand Mixer with Snap-On Case
This is a Hamilton Beach hand mixer with a snap-on case. If you read my previous introduction of other mixers, you will know how good and useful the case is. If you didn’t read, I’m glad to talk about this again.
Why I love the snap on the case? This is because you can keep all the attachments together. Try to think, if you don’t have the case, where you will put the attachments?
Yes, you may just put the attachments in the drawer. Importantly, the drawer has much other stuff. I think it’s hard to find anything you want in a moment. You may need to search through the drawer each time you need the attachments. That really time-consuming.
The snap-on case has a special design. That is the easy access door. It let you easy to take the attachment in and out. It provides much convenience for you.
This mixer comes with traditional beaters and whisk.
The speed button, eject button, and burst button is on the top. You can simply control the mixer with your thumb.
It also provides a slow first speed to you to reduce messy splatters. What is that? If you are the first time to buy the mixer, one thing you need to know.
When your mixer is at high speed, and you add the ingredients at this moment, the ingredients will splatter everywhere. That’s why you will see some mixers provide a slow speed button.
How about the QuickBurst button? When you press that, it will increase the speed.
Proctor Silex 62507 5-Speed Easy Mix Hand Mixer Black
This is a Proctor Silex 5-Speed Hand Mixer. A low speed normally uses to mix the butter and sugar. Medium speed for 3/4 box cake and 4/4 frosting. 5 is the highest speed at which you can beat your eggs or whipped cream.
On the top of the mixer, you will find the speed control which also serves as the attachments eject. To remove the beaters, you only need to simply press down on the speed control to eject the attachments.
There are four vans in the front and two in the back to prevent the mixer from overheating.
The bowl rest will help you when you’re adding ingredients to your mixes. You just simply need to set the mixer on edge of the bowl. It also can prevent mess to the counter. Other than this, you can take a rest too.
It is a small mixer and it doesn’t have much weight. It’s perfect for small spaces and easy storage.
The attachment only comes with 2 beaters. It has no burst function and no storage box. The cord can not swivel from left to right or from right to left.
I only have one thing need to mention. This mixer only comes with 100 watts of power. The torque and power may not enough for you.
Aicok Hand Mixer 6 Speed Classic Stainless Steel Mixer
There are eject buttons, a speed switch, and a turbo button on the top. You can control the hand mixer with just one thumb.
When you need to change the attachment, just simply press the eject button, then the attachment will come out.
How about the turbo button? It will provide you with additional power to your mixer. When you press this, the speed will be faster than usual for you to mix the ingredients, reduce the time and hard work in the kitchen to prepare all more easily and fast.
It is a 6-speed hand mixer. If you are new to a hand mixer, I think you may probably don’t know what the most suitable speed in a certain situation is.
For each of the speeds, I have some guides for you. Speed 1-2 is suitable for stirring gravies and mashing vegetables. Speed 3-4 is better for mixing ingredients and mashing potatoes. Speed 5-6 is good for whipping the egg white and heavy cream.
One more tip. Always start the hand mixer with the slowest speed 1 and then increase the speed gradually. Otherwise, the ingredients may splatter everywhere.
The attachments come with 2 beaters and 2 dough hooks.
This hand mixer is very compact. It’s easy to store in any cabinet.
It has only one thing you may need to concern about. This mixer doesn’t come with a snap-on storage case so you can keep all the attachments together.
Vremi VRM010074N Electric 3 Speed Hand Mixer
The attachment only comes with 2 beaters. This time, the beaters are a little bit different. It is a twin beater blade and dishwasher safe. The blade is good to cut through and blend thick, dry, or wet ingredients seamlessly.
It doesn’t come with a snap-on storage box, but you still can store the hand mixer and the beaters together. It has a built-in beater storage holder in the mixer body to keep your beater securely. Just simply snap it to the side when you don’t use the part.
It can prevent you from digging through the cabinet. No need to play hide and seek with the attachments.
This hand mixer offers four colors to let you choose from, black-white, blue-white, pink and white, and red white. As I feel, the color matches very nicely.
I have read the instruction. One rule needs to keep in mind. It states that don’t operate the mixer continuously or for more than 1 minute. The motor needs to rest in between each use.
I think it may be a big issue if you always use the hand mixer to make your lovely food.
This is the smallest hand mixer I have seen. If you will not always use or will not use it in heavy-duty, I think this mixer is not bad.
How To Choose The Best Hand Held Mixer
In below, I will write down all the most important criteria. I hope it will help you to make the best decision.
I think the first three are the most important issue for you to choose the best hand mixer.
There are 3 standard attachments, beaters, dough hooks, and a balloon whisk. In the below, I will explain to you:
Beater: use for mixing heavy ingredients, such as cake cookies or mashed potatoes.
Dough hook: shaped like a helix, used for kneading dough, bread, or pasta.
Balloon whisk: perfect for whisking egg whites, creaming ingredients, and for light cake mixtures or batters
Not all the hand mixers include this 3 standard attachment, if you buy the hand mixer cost under 20, normally it will have two beaters only.
I recommend choosing the hand mixer with the snap-on case. With the case, you can keep all the attachments together in one place, including the wire. It’s easy to store and find.
If your budget does not allow you to buy the hand mixer with the case, I suggest you should prepare a box to store the attachments.
Otherwise, you may need to dig through the cabinet for the parts each time.
Bowl Rest Feature
This feature can let you set the mixer on the edge of the bowl to prevent mess. You can then take a rest, read the recipe, or add the ingredient.
Some mixers can stand upright on the counter, but I think the ingredients on the beater still have a little bit chance to drop to the counter.
Bowl rest features can totally prevent this situation to occur.
Soft Start Feature
Soft start feature can prevent ingredients from splattering. When you first turn it on, it will start slowly and increased the speed gradually to your selected speed.
With this function, you no need to worry about the flour or whipped cream going everywhere again.
Some mixer will follow the nylon beater or the head of the beater wrap by plastic.
If the mixer you buy has this kind of a beater, your kitchen will have no clinging or clanging any more. It is a truly quiet beater.
It can ensure all the ingredients for more thorough mixing and maximize contact with the bowl.
The cord can lock into any position, either the left or right side of the mixer so you will never have any problems no matter you are lefty or righty.
Your hand will never wrestle with that cord. You can approach the ingredients from any angle.
With this function, you can increase the speed at any speed you have selected to faster finish your job.
Some cheaper mixer can only use 1 or 3 minutes each time, and then need to rest in between each use.
If you are budget enough, don’t buy this kind of mixer. It limits the dessert you can make for your lovely family.
If the mixer with DC motor, it will be lightweight and quieter.
I have seen many different numbers of speed before such as 3 speed, 5 speed, 6 speed, 7 speed, and 9 speed.
I think the speed is not a big issue for you to choose the correct hand mixer.
So, I recommend don’t concern it too much. Focus on the budget and the functionality of the hand mixer will be better.
After reading the post, I think most of you should know more about the hand mixer.
If you always cook a different kind of food or make dessert, I think the hand mixer is the basic equipment in your kitchen.
If you do not have a mixer before, I believe you will feel more comfortable if you have one in your kitchen. It can reduce your load and increase efficiency.
You will be more willing to try a different kind of dessert. I believe your kids will be excited every time they see the new dessert on the table when they back home. Your home will be full of joy every time.
If you need to make a lot of desserts every day or want to do some heavy-duty jobs, I suggest you buy a stand mixer. It will faster your job.
I hope my post can help everyone to make the best decision to buy a hand mixer.
If you have any question or opinion, please leave them below, I’d love to hear that.
