2. Breville Hand Mixer – Top Electrically Powered Hand Mixer
Breville has a nice electric hand mixer. It has a durable design, plenty of power in the motor, and works great for mixing. The only reason it’s not our top pick is it costs significantly more than the number one pick.
That price is certainly worth it, though.
This mixer has similar dimensions as the Hamiliton, but it weighs about a pound more at 4 pounds. The extra weight might make it a little more difficult to use this one handed.
Fortunately, it does have a very comfortable handle that fits smoothly in your hand.
As for speed, this mixer is a little slower than others, which is actually a good thing as it gives you more control. I also like the “intelligence” of this mixer – it can automatically detect the attachment that you are using and adjust the speed accordingly.
The upper handle has a load of neat features – an on/off button, a timer, a digital GUI, and a scroll wheel. This display is particularly nice as it automatically tracks the time you have spent mixing. That is extremely convenient for more precise recipes.
One other thing I like is the LED light that illuminates the bowl that makes it very easy to see what you are mixing.
How many speeds does a mixer have?
Nine different speeds. The transition between speeds is also very smooth, which will prevent ingredients from splattering all over the place.
It’s more expensive than any other option. However, this hand mixer has every other option beat hands down.
If you have the budget and want the absolute best hand mixer, then this is the choice for you.
