Top 9 Easy-To-Use Hand Mixers For Your Kitchen

Top 9 Easy-To-Use Hand Mixers For Your Kitchen

Hand mixers may seem rudimentary but in reality, they are rather versatile and the better choice in certain situations. As opposed to stationary blenders, these products can be used in a pot filled with hot soup while on the stove just as well as in a regular mixing bowl. Another great way of using it is for smoothies. 
But before purchasing a so-called immersion blender, there are some things to consider so that you can be sure to choose the one most suited for your particular situation.
For instance, keep in mind that they could come as they are or with certain useful accessories, perfect for beating, whisking and even food processing.
With that being said, if you already own a food processor or a countertop mixer, you will most likely not need any extra accessories when purchasing a hand mixer.
Another thing to consider is the device’s weight. After all, you need to hold it when using it, so if it’s lighter, your muscles will definitely thank you, especially if you plan on using it often and for extended periods of time.
Furthermore, immersion blenders have a variety of power levels.
A higher voltage, at around 400 watts, will help you blend things like frozen fruit and veggies with more ease.
But that also means they come with their own set of cons, a significant one that some might not want is the noise a powerful mixer produces.

On the other hand, lower-wattage products (180-400 watts) are much easier on the ears while also doing a great job with most foods.
Of course, an immersion blender may not be as powerful as a countertop one but as mentioned before, it can often be much more convenient depending on the situation.
You can always make a quick mayonnaise without too much hassle and then quickly clean it and throw it in a drawer when it’s all over and done.
And, of course, you can use it directly in a hot pot to puree a soup right on the stove, avoiding any risk of burns or spilling by trying to transfer it to a countertop blender.
Whipping cream and making a variety of dressers is just as easy to do with a hand-held mixer!
Finally, make sure you also pick a mixer that has a comfortable and ergonomic handle for easy maneuvering and a secure grip while in the kitchen.
Now that you have the basics of what you need to look out for down, here are some of the best hand mixers on the market!
