Mixers & Accessories Buying Guide

Refine By

A mixer is high on the list of must-haves in any kitchen. A hand mixer is a gem for fast, easy recipes that call for mixing. But a stand mixer that makes it easy to mix stiff cookie dough and knead light bread dough is the belle of the ball. Allowing you to walk away while the machine does the work, a stand mixer is liberating and efficient.

A hand mixer is a basic necessity. A stand mixer is a useful extra -- but one that will offer so many functions that it’s often worth the splurge. Whichever mixer style you choose, be sure you’ve done your research so you’re completely happy with a purchase that will last for years.

Hand mixer

A hand mixer is a go-to tool for light-duty kitchen jobs such as whipping heavy cream, mixing cake batter, and beating egg whites. This mixer is light to handle and easy to store.

Product Features

Product Features

Few things from the kitchen are more satisfying than homemade baked goods, and a mixer is the tool for the job. Look for product features that that best match your style so your work will be simpler and easier. A good mixer will serve for many years as a trusted, reliable tool for baking mastery.

Comfort

Because you have to lift, hold, and maneuver a hand mixer, make sure it is well balanced and comfortable in your hand. If you plan on storing a stand mixer in a cupboard instead of on the countertop, it shouldn’t be too heavy for you to lift and move.

Accessories

Handheld mixers generally come with a set of standard beaters and sometimes a wire whisk. A stand mixer typically comes with a paddle, a wire whip, and a dough hook as well as a bowl and possible even a shield.

Beaters

There are two styles of beaters for hand mixers: traditional beaters, which have a sturdy center post, and wire beaters. Wire beaters are the newer design and are easier to clean.

Speeds

Although both hand mixers and stand mixers are available with many speed settings, it’s critical that the model you choose have a low-speed option. That allows you to start slowly and avoid spattering.

Extras

Many stand mixers have a high-power motor, which, when coupled with added attachments, allows the mixer to serve as an ice cream maker, pasta maker, juicer, meat grinder, and more.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

A hand mixer costs less and is good for light-duty tasks. The everyday baker and bread maker should seriously consider a more expensive stand mixer. Before buying, think about how often you will use the appliance: If you’ll use it once a week or more, it will most likely be worth the extra money. Otherwise, a hand mixer should suit your needs. You can get more use out of a stand mixer with extra attachments.

Price

The market is full of hand mixers and stand mixers, and they range in price from $20 to $400 and up. With either model, consider features and how much you will use them before making the purchase.

Weight

Because you are lifting and holding a hand mixer, make sure it is light, balanced, and easy to hold. If you plan on storing a stand mixer in a cabinet or pantry, be sure you can easily lift and move it.

Accessories

Handheld mixers generally come with a set of standard beaters and sometimes a wire whisk, while a stand mixer comes with a paddle, a wire whip, and a dough hook as well as a bowl. Some stand mixers also come with a splatter shield.

Beaters

Hand mixers have either traditional beaters or wire beaters. Both styles do the job, but wire beaters are easier to clean.

Bowls

A stand mixer comes with a bowl that fits the mixer. Bowls may be glass, stainless steel, or plastic. Extra bowls can be purchased.

Speeds

Whatever type of mixer you buy, make sure it has a low-speed option so you can start mixing slowly, which prevents spattering. Both types come with a range of speed settings. Some hand mixers also have a “boost” or “turbo” button, allowing an extra jolt of power.

Extras

Many stand mixers have available attachments that let them do the work of other specialty kitchen appliances, such as an ice cream maker, pasta maker, juicer, meat grinder, and more.

Storage

Hand mixers are small and light enough to easily stow in a drawer or cupboard. Stand mixers are large and cumbersome, making them difficult to move.

Clearance

If a stand mixer will be stored on a countertop, make sure there is enough clearance for it below any upper cabinets. Keep in mind that when the mixer head tilts back, it will need more clearance than when in it is in the mixing position.

Colors

Both hand mixers and stand mixers are available in a wide selection of colors. Because a stand mixer may be stored on the countertop, being able to match the color of your machine to your kitchen decor is a plus.
