Yes, the hand mixer should be first baking appliance you should invest in. This sturdy, lightweight tool is perfect for speedy mixing and whisking. It’s also cheaper and easier to store compared to a bulky stand mixer. So, if you're new to baking, this is the perfect tool to get you started and inspired to try out all those baking recipes you've been drooling over.


Here are three reasons why a hand mixer is a novice baker’s essential tool–and why it’s just as useful as a stand mixer:


1 It’s speedy and powerful.

It’s smaller, yes, but it’s just as fast and power-packed as a stand mixer. KitchenAid’s 9-Speed Hand Mixer, in particular, offers nine different speeds, making tedious tasks–whipping egg whites, mashing potatoes, beating cookie dough–much easier versus mixing everything by hand.


2 It’s easy to use.

Its controls are easy to maneuver and an electronic sensor adjusts the mixing power, resulting in steady, consistent speeds. With its Soft Start feature, you’ll eliminate unnecessary splattering, too.




3 It’s much lighter.

Student bakers will love that it’s not as bulky as a stand mixer and because it’s smaller, it’s obviously lighter, too, making any heavy lifting unnecessary.


Now you know that a hand mixer is just as handy and powerful as a stand mixer at less than even half its cost.
