Best hand mixers 2022: Top electric whisks for home baking


If you’re like us, you’ll find every excuse to wolf down delicious sweet treats – whether it’s biscuits or cupcakes at a picnic, or chocolate mousse and bites at a sunny BBQ.

Would you like to try your hand at baking one of these delicacies instead of relying on the store-bought versions? Then an electric hand mixer should be on your list of kitchen essentials.

We all know that stand mixers are a beauty for the countertops, but if you want something that does the basics quickly and efficiently while taking up a lot less valuable counter space, then you can’t beat it (excuse the pun). a hand mixer.

Whether you’re investing in your first model or updating an old model, there are a few things to consider before you buy.

First check whether your selected device has all the required attachments. Whisks, dough hooks and beaters come standard on most models, but some only come with a standard pair of beaters, so it’s worth making sure your hand mixer has the features you need before you buy.

Second, look at ease of use as models vary in weight and if you spend hours preparing like a pro, a lighter model might be best. Think about storage, too – while hand mixers are already small, a compact design with handy features like retractable cords and compartments for accessories works better when you’re short on space. If you like smart kitchen helpers, there are hand mixers with integrated technology.

Finally, think about what you want from your hand mixer. Base models typically feature around four speeds, while other top-of-the-line models can have up to nine speeds when you really need a hefty power boost.

With that in mind, we’ve rounded up the best hand mixers out there and put them to work, beating, stirring and whipping up a storm.
