What experts liked
With six different speed functions, users should find that they have enough power for any mixing task. As an added bonus, there is also a special burst function. This means that users can receive a short burst of extra power whenever they need it. One of the things that makes this model stand out from the crowd is the built-in bowl rest. This allows the hand mixer to rest on the edge of a mixing bowl when it is not being used.

It’s surprisingly versatile considering the price. On top of that, it also has a QuickBurst feature. This feature is similar to the turbo function we’ve seen in premium options. The Hamilton Beach has 250 watts of power which is the same as our premium models. So you can have just as much power but for a fraction of the price.

If you’re on a budget, but you still want to bake to your heart’s content, then check out this hand mixer from Hamilton Beach.

It comes with 2 beaters which are great for making cookie dough, and a whisk to make light and airy cakes. It also has a bowl rest which stops drips from falling on your kitchen surface. This is accomplished by a built-in grove in the mixer. This mixer has a snap-on storage case to put your accessories in. You won’t have problems with losing your attachments as they will be easily on hand.

What experts didn't like
Not especially durable.
- Chef's Resource
One criticism we have is that this mixer only comes with two attachments: traditional beaters and a whisk. If you knead bread or dough, you’ll have to purchase hook attachments separately.
- Simple Green Moms
Unnecessary extra accessories.
- All Top Ten Reviews
Doesn't include dough hooks. It's less durable when used constantly.
- Handmixer Center
Beaters can be difficult to fit. Not ideal for continuous heavy-duty use. Chrome material can rust if it’s not dried properly. Hard to fit the mixer, attachments, and cord in the storage case.
- Morning Chores
Out of all those six speeds, none of them are slow. That may or may not prove inconvenient. The case is a snug fit for all components.

An Overview On Compact Hand Mixers

Stand mixers have their merits, but sometimes a counter-consuming behemoth is overkill. For quick jobs, tight quarters, or small hands, a compact hand mixer will perform the task nicely.

When shopping for a compact mixer, consider how you will likely use it. If you would like to have one on hand to whip up a cake mix or make some pancakes on occasion, a simple three-speed hand mixer will suffice. However, if you often find yourself whipping up everything from meringues to mashed potatoes, a mixer with multiple speeds and perhaps a power boost option will likely serve you better.

Attachments are another consideration. Many compact hand mixers simply include a set of beaters, which are excellent for basic mixing needs. On the other hand, you can find mixers that come with additional attachments, such as whisks and dough hooks. Again, your personal preferences will help you determine what is necessary.

Think about storage options, as well. If you have limited cabinet space in your kitchen, a compact hand mixer with its own case or with clips to hold the beaters will be easier to tuck away and to find when you need it.

Of course, the price of a compact mixer is also essential. Deciding on a budget before you begin shopping and then listing the features that matter most to you will help you make the best decision.

DYWM Fun Fact

Seventeenth-century European cooks mixed ingredients with wooden brushes, which at the time were bundles of birch twigs that had been soaked in a river to soften them until the bark peeled off easily. By the Victorian era, wire balloon whisks were widely used.

In 1884, inventor Willis Johnson patented the egg beater. The hand-cranked rotary beaters made mixing much less laborious.

An Ohio engineer invented the KitchenAid mixer; he registered the trademark in 1919.

The Compact Hand Mixer Buying Guide

  • Always turn off a hand mixer before inserting the beaters into a bowl containing ingredients to mix. Increase the speed one level at a time to avoid breaking the mixer, overbeating the batter, or making a mess of your kitchen.
  • Do not immerse a hand mixer in water. To clean it, remove the beater attachments and wash them as directed. Unplug the mixer to avoid electric shock and wipe carefully with a damp cloth where needed.
  • If your compact hand mixer includes multiple attachments, learn the functions of each to obtain the most value from them. For instance, beaters are best for mixing ingredients with a normal to dense consistency, such as batter or mashed potatoes. Dough hooks are best for kneading bread. A whisk attachment provides aeration to whip wet ingredients, such as eggs or cream.
  • Avoid messes when mixing by poking the beaters through a sheet of wax paper before inserting them into the mixer. The paper will contain splatters keeping you and your countertops clean. This is especially useful when your child wants to help in the kitchen.
  • Always supervise children using a hand mixer to avoid damage to the appliance as well as injury to the child.
