Hi, I'm looking for people's advise on what's a good hand mixer to go for. I've broke so many in the past doing simple cake and buttercream mixs and and Christmas my partner brought me a expensive Lakeland mixer and on my second cake it broke and the motor stopped so I desired to get a replacement one the same and again on about my 4th cake mix with it it's broke again so I'm wondering if any one knows what I could be doing wrong or have any recomendations for a good hand mixer it would be gratefully recieved as iv spent to much now and keep breaking them.[/b]

I cant recommend a good hand mixer bc I stopped using them so long ago. BUT, i wanted to suggest to you, that if you are able to, you shoud get a stand mixer bc the hand mixers are not able to withstand what you need it for. BC is very hard on a mixer so having a good one like a KitchenAid will come in handy, Always!!

With all the funds spent on the hand mixers, you can probably find a reasonable priced stand mixer and trust me, you will be very happy icon_smile.gif

Hi thank you for your reply, I have a stand mixer its a ken wood chef but when my last hand mixer broke I used my stand mixer and the cake didn't seem to get enuff air in it as it didn't rise as much as the first.

I love my Kitchen Aid 9 speed mixer! I've abused it, umm I mean I have had it for several years now with no problems. I also had a KA 5 speed before it for over 10 years with no problems.

Do you know if there are any hand mixers. With metal gears?

I like my Cuisinart 7-speed hand mixer for cake mixes and my Wolfgang Puck stand mixer for buttercream and heavier stuff.
