HB Stand/Hand Mixer
I love this mixer. A lot of the reviews I read made me feel a bit hesitant to purchase this, but so glad I did. I had a cheap had mixer for years that was difficult to use always wanted the luxury of a stand mixer that could also double as a hand mixer. This fits this bill perfectly. I'm not a fancy baker, I like making box cakes or mixing simple recipe items, it works great. If you are someone who loves making bread, not sure that this would be heavy duty enough for you. I never tried it although it comes with the attachments to make it, possibly a small batch would work. It looks great on my counter with all my other stainless steel and I didn't have to spend all that money on a big fancy model that I really didn't need. This was an excellent value for the price.
Mix with no hands
I have used all the attachments that came with the mixer. they work great, I love the steel bowl as well.
great mixer has done everthing that we used it for and the price was great
Its better than a regular hand mixer, but not as bulky as a large kitchen aid mixer
I Love It, You Will Too!
This is THE best hand mixer on a stand that I have found! I've looked for YEARS for a small stand and Hand mixer and the weight and power behind the Hamilton Beach far outweighs that of anything else on the market. I have a small kitchen, with very little storage space so a regular size stand only mixer was out of the question. This one is small enough to fit in my small cabinet space when not in use, and powerful enough when I'm mixing anything. I have arthritis in my wrists and fingers so I depend on this mixer to do the job I just could not do by hand anymore.
Works very well.
I ordered this mixer with a fair amount of apprehension after reading other reviews of it. I am, however, glad that I purchased it, because it's a great mixer! Is it a Kitchen Aid? Absolutely not. But, then again, I don't think that was the intention of Hamilton Beach!
The unit itself is lightweight (which I appreciate) and doesn't take up a lot of room on my counter (another thing I appreciate--my kitchen is tiny). The mixing bowl is more than adequate in size, and the motor in the mixer is perfect for my needs. It comes with both beaters and dough hooks. The dough hooks do exactly what they are supposed to do--knead dough--which is wonderful. One review I read said the bowl does not spin when mixing--I found this to be untrue--it spins, insuring even mixing of all ingredients.
So, if you're looking for a nice little inexpensive mixer to handle your non-food service industry needs, this little guy might be for you! Enjoy!
dandy little mixer
This little mixer is exactly what I was looking for - does what I need it to, trim and good-looking on my counter, and easy to change implements. Very satisfied. and the price was exceptionally good.
Easy setup and was surprised the mixer could be used as a portable mixer too.
Ordered this Stand mixer for my Thanksgiving holiday cooking. It did a great job on my cakes and pie fillings. It quickly whipped up frosting, sweet potatoes, cookie mixes, and the mixer can be used as a portable. It easily pops right off the stand and I moved it to the stove for whipped mashed potatoes. So happy with the product. It also was a breeze to set up right out of the box. It came with mixers, dough hooks and even a whisk.
excellent mixer at a fabulous price!
I was so excited to find this at such a great price. It arrived quickly and in tact. It is a wonderful mixer, especially for the price. Ive always wanted one of those expensive stand mixers, but this will meet my needs just fine for a fraction of the price. Very excited about this purchase!
Take a good look at this.
Powerful motor and more convenient than hand held mixer selling in same price range. A good gift possibility for others.
