I have a Hand Mixer that was given to me as a gift a number of years ago. It is a Kitchenaid Hand Mixer. It is still "going strong."
I have KitchenAid mixers, both countertop and hand units, at home ... and at the restaurant.
I have tried a couple of other manufacturers but have never found a company that makes better mixers than KitchenAid.
Personally I think they own most of this market, at least for now.
One is the KitchenAid KHM5APWH 5-Speed Ultra Power Hand Held Unit pictured above.
Five speeds and a powerful, lightweight motor with turbo beater accessories and a well-designed handle should be everything most people need.
I show it in pink because if you purchase a pink hand held mixer, KitchenAid will donate $10 to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation as part of their Cook for the Cure®.
If you are interested in purchasing a hand held mixer, focus on this manufacturer. They have a number of models to choose from.
Thank you, KitchenAid! Of course the mixer comes in several other color choices.
This mixer comes with dough hooks for kneading yeast dough quickly and completely and a blender rod for mixing smoothies, milkshakes, sauces and soups.
I especially like the design of the stainless steel beater accessories. No center posts prevent them from clogging easily.
Some people need a mixer with a greater variety of speeds
because of the tasks they do frequently.
KitchenAid has a 7 speed and a 9 speed
These models are "primo." As for price, if you
watch sales you can frequently find the 9 speed for the same price or sometimes
even less than the 7-speed model.
The KitchenAid KHM9PWH 9-Speed Professional Hand Held Mixer's digital display shows the selected speed which provides excellent control while an electronic sensor works with the powerful, yet lightweight motor, to maintain that speed in any mixture, heavy to light.
It also comes with a whisk attachment. If my current KitchenAid hand held mixer ever wears out I want this one to replace it. It makes a terrific gift.
As you know, cooking is how I spend a GREAT DEAL of my time. But for others who only cook occasionally, there is one hand held mixer they could do just fine with. A "true" hand mixer.
Thanks for your visit! Please "bookmark" the website!
Did you know? Mixers for the kitchen first came into use midway through the nineteenth century; the earliest were mechanical devices.
The mixer with rotating parts was patented in 1856 by Ralph Collier.
