On the versatility front, the more basic hand mixers came with a set of beaters only. Beaters can do plenty in the kitchen, from emulsifying marinades and vinaigrettes to beating homemade frosting. But the mixers, like the Smeg, that came with dough hooks for kneading dough and a whisk attachment (or in the case of the Smeg mixer, two) for whipping cream and eggs were able to accomplish a much wider variety of tasks.

As a longtime food writer who contributes to Food & Wine, Bon Appétit, the New York Times and Food52, among other publications, I often rely on the power of an electric mixer when I’m developing recipes. I am also the author of seven cookbooks, and I have used electric mixers while creating recipes for each of them. Along the way, I have mostly relied on a stand mixer, so I have high standards for what an electric mixer should be able to accomplish—standards I held for each of the hand mixers I tried out during my testing process. Beyond food writing, I regularly review home appliances for Forbes Vetted, including rice cookers, ice cream makers and cold press juicers.For the most part, the six hand mixers I tested shared a lot of similarities, from their weight (they all weighed between roughly 2 and 4 pounds) to their overall design. The differences came primarily in the form of power and versatility. Smeg’s superior design even extends to storage. The mixer comes with a slate gray canvas drawstring pouch that elegantly holds the six attachments when I’m not using them. A couple of the other mixers I tested came with attachment storage, too—including the Cuisinart. But unsurprisingly, Smeg’s was the most beautiful of the bunch. The Price May Not Be Right For Everyone

Out of the six hand mixers I tested, the Cuisinart Power Advantage Plus 9 Speed Hand Mixer was my overall favorite—but the Smeg Hand Mixer came in a very close second. Just like the Cuisinart, it offers nine power speeds with simple, one-handed control buttons for straightforward toggling. The difference a little extra power can make was most apparent when I put the Smeg mixer to use whipping cream. Most of the other mixers took a couple of minutes (or longer) to fully whip cream to stiff peaks. But the Smeg’s powerful motor coupled with two balloon whisk attachments transformed a cup of heavy cream into perfect billowy clouds in under 1 minute—and with surprisingly minimal splatter. Smeg was founded in 1948 in northern Italy, where the brand continues to design and manufacture home appliances—everything from refrigerators to toasters and coffee makers—today. The company has several distinct aesthetic lines, but is arguably best known for its 1950s retro line. I love that the hand mixer shares the line’s vintage rounded shape, shiny chrome detailing and bright color palette. (The mixer I tested is cream colored, but it is available in six other colors, ranging from pastel blue to candy apple red.)

Leah Koenig Beautiful Design That Upgrades Your Kitchen’s Vibe Attachments: Hand mixers come with two beaters as standard, but some also include dough hooks for kneading dough and a wire whisk for whisking small quantities. Every model on our list has dishwasher-safe attachments for easy cleaning.The attachments for this mixer are not dishwasher safe, meaning that you will need to take the time to hand wash each whisk or beater. This wasn't a problem for me, but if you like to save time after your baking, it might be a little annoying. The included instruction manual says that you can clean the housing unit with a damp cloth once unplugged, and wait to thoroughly dry before storing away. How it compares Wattage isn’t always the best indicator of a hand mixer's power, as some lower wattage motors are simply more energy efficient. During testing, there were excellent performances from mixers with wattages ranging from 85W to 400W. Which is better: hand blender or hand mixer? Both appliances are practical and enjoyable to use, with some overlap, but they serve predominantly different purposes. Hand mixers are the go-to for all things baking, from blending fluffy cake mix to whisking egg whites for glossy meringues. To find the best hand mixers on the market, the Good Housekeeping Institute has assessed the performance of a range of leading models across a variety of recipes, from a heavy batter to light cream.
