The main feature of the KHM926CU is that it comes in nine speeds. Speed one is for chunky ingredients and recipes where you stir slowly. All the other speeds in between are for mashed potatoes, creams and picky recipes that call for specific settings. Speed nine is for stirring meringue. It tells you which speed it is currently set to with a digital bar on the interface.

This hand-held version of the popular KitchenAid stand mixer has an impressive nine speeds, allowing you to easily combine large ingredients with slow stirring, or blend watery ingredients with fast whipping. Speed one is perfect for combining chunky foods, while speed nine is ideal for whipping meringue. This hand mixer is well known for being easy to use, as it has a Soft Start™ Feature, which gradually brings the beaters up to your selected speed setting to help minimize splattering.

The soft-start means that even if you choose a high speed, the mixer will start slow and build up, so you won’t fling ingredients out of the bowl. The cord locks into place on the left or right side of the mixer to keep it out of the way, no matter which way you face or where your outlets are.

The soft grip handle gives you a firm, comfortable grip to prevent your hand from tiring out, and the cord can be locked onto both the left and right sides of the mixer so you can choose the perfect position for your needs. It comes complete with an assortment of Stainless Steel Beater II accessories, which are easy to remove, thanks to the ejector button; and since they’re dishwasher safe, cleaning up is a breeze.

This KitchenAid model has nine speeds depending on what you’re making, so for recipes that call on you to keep the ingredients nice and chunky you choose speed one, for creaming butter or mixing bread batter you choose speed six and for whipping up a delicious meringue, it’s speed nine.

The KHM926CU is a lightweight option that only weighs about two pounds, so you will have no issues holding it upright for a long period of time. This hand mixer has nine different speed options that range from an extremely slow option that is great for mixing dry items to a faster option that is great for creating whipped cream. Since it is hard to mix ingredients at a fast speed, the mixer has a soft start option that allows you to set the hand mixer to start out slowly and speed up as the ingredients are incorporated.

The mixer features a soft grip handle that aids in providing a comfortable mixing experience. In addition to this, the mixer is user-friendly and work perfectly. Despite the quality features, it is one cost-effective hand mixer beaters that you will rely on for quality services.
