The hand mixer will not only save you time whisking, but it will also perform better in mixing cake batters or cookie doughs — it will mash potatoes, whip butter and beat eggs in minutes. The hand mixer will probably become a favorite even if you don’t bake much.
Make sure to look for a hand mixer that is easy to clean, has an easy eject button for attachments, and has multiple attachment options. I would also recommend one with a turbo speed setting.
My recommendation is: Cuisinart 9-Speed Mixer with Case
