Here are the best hand mixers that Amazon reviewers are raving about

Published

on

A hand mixer is a known essential when it comes to kitchen appliances. Long gone are the days of breaking a sweat just to mix up some cookie dough with a spatula. Having a hand mixer makes stirring up practically any concoction incredibly easy with just the push of a button. The key nowadays is to be able to choose the right mixer. For a device with such a straight-forward purpose, there are actually a lot of factors to consider, such as speed functions, storage space and included accessories. To help you choose the one that meets all of your needs, we relied on Amazon reviews for some real, firsthand accounts of what to expect for each product. 

Our top over-all pick goes to the KitchenAid KHM7210CU 7-Speed Digital Hand Mixer, for its variety of speed settings, convenient soft-start feature, and consistently high praise in the review section. The took the cake in terms of versatility and convenience, as it also functions as a blender and food processor and takes up minimal space. For our budget-friendly option, we picked the , which is great for anyone who needs a simple, starter-mixer for a very inexpensive price. 

Read on to see the other options that fell into the mix. 

The draw: An easy to use, high-performing mixer from a trusted brand name 

The gist: Unsurprisingly, KitchenAid delivers the quality with this digital hand mixer, which is Amazon’s Choice for “best hand mixer.” It has seven different speeds, so whether you’re mashing up some potatoes or whipping meringue, you’re able to customize to just the right speed. Hate splatter? Join the club. Luckily, the KitchenAid comes with a Soft Start feature, so the beaters gain speed gradually until they reach your selected speed setting—meaning you don’t have to worry about your mixture ending up all over the walls. Once you pick your speed, just lock the cord into either side of the mixer so you can mix at any angle without it getting in the way. When you’re done, just pop off any accessory (whether it be the beaters or the included Pro Whisk) with the push of a button.

“I’d earlier decided that I was going to stick with KitchenAid small appliances, and so far, this hand mixer confirms that decision. The beaters are significantly more substantial than those of my prior hand mixer whose beaters actually bent when mixing stiff dough; I love the electronic speed switching as well. I’ve used it several times during this past Holiday season to make cookies and some festive cheesecakes, and I couldn’t be more pleased with its consistent performance.”

The draw: Automatically adjusts speed based on what you’re mixing, quiet scraper beaters allow for quiet use and maximum bowl contact

The gist: We might as well call this thing the “smart mixer,” or at least acknowledge how smart Breville was when designing the features of this hand mixer.  Using its beater IQ intuitive interface, the mixer can recognize which attachment you’re using and adjust its mixing speed accordingly. Speaking of attachments, it comes with two beaters, two dough hooks, and two whisk attachments. The beaters have rubber coverings that not only eliminate that annoying “clanging” sound but also allow you to scrape all the ingredients off of any bowl without worrying about leaving scratches. It’s rocking a 240-watt DC motor, which means high torque at low speeds, and even has a mixing light (so you can see all the magic happening in your bowl), a count-up timer, and an attachable storage bin to easily store all of your attachments. Though it’s definitely the priciest mixer on our list, many reviews claim it’s worth every penny.

“I can’t say enough good things about this mixer! If I had to pick a favorite feature I think it would be how quiet it is. Additionally, I love: it has a light to illuminate your mixing bowl, all the attachments store conveniently with it, it has a swivel cord, stands up easily, releases the attachments with the pull of a button, and has multiple speed settings with pause and burst options. I also really love the “count up” feature that tells me how long I’ve been mixing something. The amount of baking I do has increased significantly due to the purchase of this mixer, I love it so much, I am always looking for new recipes to use it with!”

The draw: Has ample speed functions and silicone-plated beaters for quiet, scratch-free mixing.

The gist: The KRUPS hand mixer is, shall we say—considerate. Its silicone-plated beaters are a praised feature, as they not only protect your pots and pans from scratches or nicks but also make for super quiet mixing. Additionally, it has *ten* different speed functions as well as a Turbo boost button— so you can get *very* precise when it comes to the perfect mixing speed. The mixer comes with two coated beaters, two dough hooks, and one whisk.

Amazon user Christopher A. Parr writes:

“The first time I used the mixer (on a batch of pecan sandies), my husband wasn’t even aware I was making them until I surprised him with the results. It is a perfect combination of power with teflon-coated silence. I predict you’ll not regret this purchase; I haven’t.”

Amazon user Cherylita writes:

“I bought a new (tad more expensive) pot/pan set. When mixing mashed potatoes my old mixer put damage on the coating in the pot. 😭
Paid too much to wreck those pans, so found this product. Works great, protects the coating on the metal and all the speeds to choose is a bonus too. Plus you get the dough and whisk attachment (I didn’t realize they came with) and a handy stand to keep it all together. Very worth it to me. I am hoping that this lasts a LONG time. No issues so far.”

The draw: Space-saving and also works as a blender and food processor.

The gist: When it comes to convenience, it doesn’t get much better than this XProject 4-in-1 Hand Blender. Not only does it save space with its slender design—this thing can replace the clunky food processor and blender taking up all that space in your cabinet, too! The XProject comes with several attachment pieces: an immersion blender, a 500ml food processor, a 600ml beaker and one whisk attachment. This means you can whisk cake batter, blend a smoothie and process some onions and cilantro for a mean guacamole—all with the same device! It even comes with a splash guard to prevent food splatter. With 800 watts of power, this little powerhouse has six different speed options, plus a continuous and pulse option.

“I LOVE this machine! Very well made, great customer contact with helpful tips, and follow up contact to be sure I was happy with my purchase (I am indeed happy)! I put this to heavy use over the last few day. It is SO comfortable to hold, with power, speed and turbo buttons/dial all easy to reach and use. Powerful too! It really does blend, chop and whip well. I have lots of different machines to use for meals prep, but this one unit does SO much! Made relish, ground fresh coffee, blended soup stock for canning. Whipped cream, made butter, chopped nuts to top my pies. It has handled every task I have put it to so far. Its light weight, so easy to handle. Comes with a blender flask, a chopper unit with blades (very sharp). The power cord is 7 feet long, so you can easily reach your work space! This is my new favorite cooking/prep unit. I highly recommend this unit and this seller!!”

The draw: Compact, space-saving, quick and easy to use.

The gist: In case you liked the compact design of the XProject but aren’t quite ready to cheat on your Nutribullet, the Mueller Ultra-Stick is the way to go. Aside from taking up virtually no space, its ergonomic grip offers a non-slip and comfortable grip for the times when you’re continuously blending ingredients. On the inside, this thing is rocking a full copper motor that Mueller claims will last “3x longer” than competitors’ motors. Cleaning has never been easier, since you can just rinse it out with water or stick it right in the dishwasher.

“Perfect Timing! My hand blender that I was using died on me and I was looking for one. This Mueller Ultra Stick came just in time. I have been using it to mix my protein shakes and collagen mix in the mornings and it is fantastic! The best part about this Blender is the metal shaft and that it’s detachable. The one I had prior was made of all plastic and in one piece so I could not wash the entire machine. This is great! I also like that there is so many different speeds. So I can make an ice cream shake in minutes and a regular smoothie in seconds. This Hand Mixer is very sleek and made with very good sturdy material. It’s not cheap plastic. I’m so excited to use this more to make more creations for me and my family.”

The draw: Lightweight, varying speeds, and a super convenient carrying case.

The gist: The Black + Decker model offers all the essentials: six different speeds, including a TURBO button that’ll increase the mixer to maximum speed, for all of those tough-to-stir lumps and bumps. It also has a 20% slower starting speed to help prevent that splatter effect that we hate so much. To top it all off, it comes with a full-on rectangular carrying case, making it easy to transport, stack or store on any shelf or in any cabinet while keeping your pieces together.

“I bought this to make pies and homemade whipping cream. It does an excellent job for both and whats more, it comes with a black carrying case. This is practical addition so that you don’t have it laying out to stuffed in a drawer.”

Amazon user Todd writes: 

“Works great, has good power and they dont beat the bowl unlike the square shape wire beaters and old style wide beaters. For those wondering yes the beaters have an eject button, just push down on speed setting button far enough and out they go.”

The draw: Budget-friendly, good starter-mixer

The gist: This Hamilton Beach mixer is a great choice for those looking for a budget-friendly, easy-to-use hand mixer. It boasts a 250-watt motor and six different speed settings, including a burst option for when you want to add a little extra oomph to any speed setting. Its convenient bowl rest feature allows you to set the mixer down to add more ingredients or double-check something in your recipe book. It also comes with a snap-on storage case, so no more digging through the drawer to find your whisks.  

What Amazon users have to say:

Amazon user Meg writes:

“This is the perfect mixer for the price! You cannot beat it! The mixer comes with a snap on case which is extremely convenient for containing the cord and keeping everything clean and organized. I received one whisk attachment and two beater attachments. I have used this for a number of cookie recipes as well as cakes and brownies thus far and the mixer has not disappointed at all. The noise level is typical for any other mixer and my kids enjoy helping to mix when I am baking. I love the bowl rest feature that allows the mixer to stand on its own end while the beaters drip into your bowl; this is very convenient when additional ingredients need to be added.”

The draw: A lightweight, easy-to-use hand mixer that will add a pop of color to your kitchen cabinet.

The gist: The VonShef red hand mixer is a good go-to for anyone looking to add a little style to their appliance selection in the form of a versatile, lightweight hand mixer. This budget-friendly mixer has a 250-watt motor, five different speed settings, and a Turbo setting, to help you get through even the thickest of batter. It comes with one electric hand whisk, two beaters, two dough hooks and one balloon whisk—all of which are dishwasher safe. Plus, its sleek, red and silver design will look super nice in your kitchen. 

What Amazon users have to say:

Amazon user Judith Carr writes:

“Great little hand mixer. I purchased this for the great price and for the multiple different attachments which is more uncommon. I really love that feature especially for the beater attachment because i love that i can whip up some cream so quickly and easily with this handheld mixer rather that getting down my huge and heavy Kitchenaid mixer which i only need now for bigger jobs! The color i got was Red and it looks super chic and stylish and small enough to hide away in a drawer.”

The draw: Good for basic use, cool retro design, takes up minimal space.

The gist: Sometimes extravagant features on a hand mixer just aren’t necessary, especially if you’re someone who just plans to use it for baking things like cake and cookies. For those times, a basic yet sturdy hand mixer, aka this Vremi model, are what’s up. The Vremi comes with two stainless steel egg beaters, three speed settings, convenient clip-on storage and a retractable cord. Unlike other mixers that may come with a separate, attachable plastic casing, the Vremi lets you clip your beater attachments to either side of the mixer, allowing for maximum space-saving. Though it’s a basic mixer, its retro design is anything but basic. Add a little flair by choosing from one of the four available colors; pink, black, blue or red.

Amazon user O’Family writes:

“For a basic hand mixer, this Vremi 3 speed model is GREAT!! If you are space challenged it’s perfect! This retro looking (I can’t help but think of the 50’s with the great red and white combo!) mixer is easy to use and so, so convenient to store! My favorite feature of this tool is the beater storage. The beaters cleverly store on each side of the handle, popping into place and making them easy to find and minimize space that is taken up for storage. They easily pop into place when you are ready to use them and the three speeds are strong and ready to mix, mix, mix. The wraps around the body, laying nicely in a groove that I think was made for this purpose, but the cord end is a challenge to figure out how to secure and put away nicely. It would be nice if there was a spot made for it to pop into. I think every kitchen should have a basic hand mixer for quick, every day prep, and this Vremi model is fun, clever, inexpensive, and works great. I’m very happy with mine and use it all the time!”
