Okay...Okay...You are all going to think I am crazy...I do not like my Kitchenaid Stand mixer. It never mixes all the batters and I can only do 1 at a time. I am so done with it. I prefer a hand mixer, I always have, I always will. My KA hand mixer burned out a few months ago (they replaced for free) but I really need to get a top of the line, commercial quality hand mixer. What is the best?
I have the KA 9 speed hand mixer and it does a great job, i also have the Cuisinart 9 speed hand mixer too and its doing great as well, both used very regularly in class and at home to mix my cake batter and small batches of buttercream, and the occasional cookie or brownies by my kids. you can get the KA 9 speed in red or pink for $49, thats a great buy from shopkitchen aid .com
I prefer the KA 9 speed also because Most clients have several different flavors of cake, so I make small batches anyway.
I have used a black and decker brand before (can't remember the model as it was fairly old) but it was super powerful as well.
I was recently in the market for a new hand mixer and wanted a KA. I looked at the reviews on Amazon and noticed that just recently there were lots of problems with them. They just woke up dead one day - lots of folks said. So I bought the Cuisinart 7 speed instead. I really like it.
I subscribe to Cooks Illustrated Online and just checked their reviews. They just this month reviewed hand mixers. The Cuisinart 7 speed was their top choice, $50. The KA 9 speed was second, $80.
Consumer Reports rated the KA highest, but did not include the Cuisinart in the samples.
Don't bother with the Black & Decker or the Hamilton Beech - got these at different times as a "rush purchase" when I needed something and they did not last at all! My KA hand mixer lasted the longest by far...
I can recommend to check out Cuisinart HM-70. The device is equipped with a powerful 220 watt engine, which has 7 speed levels and a function of automatic feedback.
I use it for 2 years already - really satisfied.
The price for this hand mixer is quite acceptable - about 40-50 bucks on Amazon.
Here the source for review below.
i would like your in put for the following product, please?
where can I find reviews for this product?
One of my KA handmixer's beater broke, so I assume that, that was it for it and just threw the broken piece, I did not remember that KA would replace it! So at this moment I have nothing to send and show that it broke. They are just going to think that I misplace it but it really broke.
I like this one because it can be both, a hand held and has a stand too.
Thanking you in advance for any reply.
PS. I already have a KA 6QT stand mixer I love it!
I saw America's Test Kitchen and they also gave KA the best rating for hand mixers. I LOVE my KA stand mixer...I have it running for 20 minutes at a time when making IMBC and it never lets me down
I love my K-5 Stand mixer, but for a hand mixer I have Suzanne Somers hand mixer which I use all the time (and LOVE.) It's not designed for the rigors of cakes though, so keep that in mind.
I like to use my hand mixer when I'm too lazy to haul out the 7 qt mixer. My KA burned out after six months so I bought a cheapie ($5 on sale at the supermarket). That one last two years and when it burned out I replaced it with another cheapie (with inflation, $7.) That was two years ago... Uh oh, I must be due for another burn out.
