1. Cuisinart HM-90S Power Advantage Plus -
The Best Hand Mixer for 2018
When I started to review the HM-90S, a quick realization came over me… it’s the best hand mixer on my list. And there’s a few reasons behind this statement.
As most are focusing on providing dirt cheap prices so most can easily buy and use in their kitchen, what I think Cuisinart does with their hand held mixers is smart. They focus on quality, useful accessories, and longevity of their product.
Poor designs on the electronics inside, can often result in burnt-out motors and even some basic functions such as functions of the buttons, wear down rather quickly. Aside for being one of the most popular mixers, it has kept a rather solid average customer review score.
More than a few thousand units have been bought just with the sheer feedback users have left behind, and factoring in price, features and customer satisfaction… it deserves the #1 pick on my list. Let's both go over the features which make the Cuisinart HM90-S, a worthy option.

Aside from the very nice standard color in red, there’s a host of other colors to choose from.

With that being said, it makes it to my number TWO spot for being a rather popular item.There’s more than 2,000 reviews for this item on Amazon alone. That’s not taking into account other sources selling the same hand mixer.
From the popular rating of 4+ stars, there’s a big percentage of people being happy with the purchase. You and I will dive into this mixers main features, along with key benefits.
This is the definition of a BANG FOR THE BUCK. Hamilton Beach is known for creating products that work exceptionally well in the kitchen. I don’t think they miss out on a category in the kitchen, that’s how popular they are.
When it comes to major kitchen appliances like juicers, electric kettles, mixers, and more… they are well known. In this review, we are going to cover the Hamilton Beach 62682RZ.

Luckily for you there a few colors to choose from, so you’re not suck with the standard gray and silver.

By spending an extra 10-20 dollars, you’ll get much better quality, with this unit being no exception.
There’s quite a few features and befits I want to cover from doing the research. In addition, I’ll also narrow down the exact pro’s and con’s.
The last hand mixer on our list, is the Vremi VRM010008N. Most likely, you never heard of this brand. I too have never heard of this brand, but what caught my attention was the popularity among shoppers, and those darn eye-catching colors you see them come in.

Honorable Mention - Kitchenaid KMH920
Now there IS actually a hand mixer which we did not mention in this whole guide, it's agreeable that you should definitely look into the full review of the KMH920 here. If our list was a bit bigger, it would be #7 without a doubt.
What Can You Use These For?
That is an excellent question, and the answer really isn't that complex. The key here is so that you don't burn out your mixer by mixing things that are too thick. For instance, you can use them for cookies you bake at home, for kneading dough, for general home use in the kitchen such as mashed potatoes, and lastly for baking that requires mixing some form of liquid or thick stew.
Being compact makes them not commercially viable. Most if not all are under 100 US dollars and that makes these sale bargains not ideal for any HUGE tasks. Most small to medium-sized meals can be made from scratch, and any of the above hand held mixers will be perfect!
How to use your hand mixer the right way
So there you have it, the list of the best hand mixers you should buy. Hopefully each hand mixer review was of value for you because I personally dug into customer reviews, product specs, product features, and had to dig a bit hard to find out the real pro’s and con’s. When it comes down to these, you should not be spending any more than 100 dollars for a hand mixer. Anything between 30-50 dollars should be more than enough for a high quality product that comes with the attachments necessary to get your job done. All these electric hand mixers do function on 110volts of power, so please be careful and select the appropriate voltage for them.
