The KitchenAid® 9-Speed Hand Mixer isn't just a hand mixer, it's four kitchen utensils in one! Whether I need to mix, whisk, blend, or knead, I can count on this appliance to do it all. For someone with limited kitchen storage space, I love that this Hand Mixer is compact enough to be easily stored, and it's the only tool I need to whip up pretty much any baked good. Plus, it can handle any job with its variety of speeds. If I'm mixing chocolate chips into cookie dough, I would use a low speed. For creaming together butter and sugar, speed six was perfect, and for whipping up meringue, speed nine gets the job done quickly.
With four different attachments, the KitchenAid® 9-Speed Hand Mixer is versatile enough to knead a small amount of bread dough, blend liquids like gravy or milkshakes, and whisk perfect whipped cream. I used the Hand Mixer to make a cake, and I was surprised how user-friendly it is. With the touch of a digital button, you have full control over the speed of the device, and the information is displayed on a screen.
I've used multiple other hand mixers for baking, and this one is by far the most sophisticated and easy to use. It's relatively light-weight, and I love that I can easily change the attachments as I need to in the middle of a recipe. The Hand Mixer's stainless steel beater attachments are strong enough to handle heavy ingredients and can be washed in the dishwasher. I didn't have to worry about the cord getting away, because it can be locked into either the left or right side of the mixer.
Having a good quality Hand Mixer makes baking easier, and this one is great when it comes to functionality, style and design. I was able to easily whip together frosting for my cake, and it had the perfect consistency in no time at all. With the KitchenAid® 9-Speed Hand Mixer in our Test Kitchen, there's no need to have a separate bread kneader or whisk. It comes with a bag to keep all the parts organized and easily stored. I can simply pull it out when I'm baking a recipe and let it do the work for me.
