10 Best Hand Mixers in the UK 2021 (Breville, Cuisinart and More)

Hand mixers are a great innovation that allows you to be more versatile with your baking. Smaller, lighter and easier to clean than a traditional stand mixer, electric hand mixers cut down on the space required and allow you to use any mixing bowl to mix in as they’re not tied to any particular mixing vessel.


Also known as beaters, hand mixers are a vital piece of kitchen equipment and we have picked out the crème de la crème for you! Amazon, eBay, John Lewis and Argos are great places to purchase some of the top makes of hand mixers, and we have found the best available from brands such as KitchenAid, Kenwood, Russell Hobbs and Breville.

How to Choose a Hand Mixer in the UK

When choosing a mixer, think about what you’re most likely to use it for. The types of tasks you hope to accomplish will determine the types of accessories as well as the motor power you will need.

Choose a Hand Mixer That Has the Attachments You Need

Most hand mixers will at least come with beaters. However, if you intend to use your hand mixer for other tasks, like making bread or whipping egg white, you may need to purchase a model that includes extra attachments.

Choose a Hand Mixer That Has the Attachments You Need

Beaters Are Great for Regular Mixing Jobs

Most hand mixers will at least come with beaters, the workhorse of the hand mixer attachment collection. These are useful for most generic mixing jobs, like mixing cake batters. They can be made from a variety of materials, but stainless steel is a good choice as it is durable and easy to keep clean.


In need of some new mixing bowls

Whisks Are Perfect for Making Fluffy Cream and Eggs

Ideal for whisking eggs and whipped cream, their unique balloon shape introduces more air into your mixture, making it fluffier. Whisk attachments can be hard to get hold of, but they make these jobs so much quicker and easier.

Dough Hooks Can Help You Make Bread and Pizza

If you want a hand mixer to make the occasional loaf of bread, make sure you have a set of dough hooks for your hand mixer as these hooks are designed for mixing and kneading doughs for pizza and bread. Yum! Look for models with more powerful motors too, as mixing doughs takes more power!


Whilst you're here, take a look through our favourite bread flours

Select a Model With a Powerful Motor for Heavier Use

Select a Model With a Powerful Motor for Heavier Use

Hand mixers vary a lot in terms of power, and our recommendations list covers a big variety. Bigger motors don’t always mean better though! If you only need your mixer for mixing cakes, whipping cream and eggs as well as other lightweight jobs, then a less powerful motor will suit you well.


Something in the 85-120 W range would certainly suffice and can even handle some heavier jobs, provided you mix in shorter bursts. However, if you plan to use your hand mixer for mixing doughs, then you should consider a mixer that offers more power, so look for mixers with motors of at least 300 W.

Mixers With More Speeds Offer Greater Control

Mixers With More Speeds Offer Greater Control

Most mixers will offer at least a few different speeds, and this feature determines how much control you have. The more speeds on offer, the greater the level of control you will have over your mixing. 


Some models also offer additional features, such as boost or turbo speeds for a bit of additional oomph, while others have a pulse option to give you short, sharp bursts of mixing. Look for a model with at least three to five speeds for versatile control over your mixing.


Things can sometimes get a bit messy in the kitchen. So don't forget to wear a kitchen apron

Lighter Mixers Will Be Easier to Hold

Lighter Mixers Will Be Easier to Hold

Most hand mixers are designed to be held while you mix. Depending on the task at hand, this can mean you’re holding your mixer for quite long periods of time, and this can be tiring or even cause strain. 


However, models that are really light may also be harder to control when you’re mixing at higher speeds. If a bag of sugar weighs a kilo, you can get an idea of how much the various models weigh. 750g to about 1.3 kg is probably the optimum range for most people.

    Some might think a wok is just a bigger, bowl-shaped frying pan. That's certainly not the case! A good wok is based on the Chinese principle of wok hei, or "breath", which is the specific way a wok channels heat into the middle of the pan for that characteristic quick-cook stir fry crunch. In the West, you'll mostly use a wok for stir frying, but in Chinese cooking they be can be used to deep fry, poach, boil or even stew certain dishes. But what makes a good wok? You don't want to buy one and find all your food keeps sticking to it, or that it's not the right shape for your hob. Both are common occurrences with new wok owners, but our guide is here to help you avoid those pitfalls. We'll also recommend the top woks to buy on Amazon, John Lewis and Argos so you can buy the best one for your cooking needs!
