The overwhelmingly wonderful aroma of cookies or cakes baking in the oven can fill your whole house up. Whether it’s a yellow cake, oatmeal raisin cookies, or a lemon meringue pie, baking desserts and treats are sure to please whomever you’ve made them for (especially if they are just for yourself). While you’ll have to lay out all of your ingredients prior to starting, rather than scrambling as you’re in the middle of trying to measure other ones out, you’ll have to get out any equipment you might need. A mixing bowl is always a good start and a cookie or cake pan is likely to be needed. In order to fold and combine your ingredients together, rather than taking a whisk or fork and having it take a really long time, a hand mixer will make the process so much simpler. This electric device will whip up your batter without a hassle. We’ve made a list below of our favorite hand mixers, so you can start to fill your house with that great aroma of desserts.
Don’t put a huge dent in your wallet
Tried and tested, the Hamilton Beach 6-Speed Electric Hand Mixer is a solid and cost-effective purchase.

You’ll be able to mix easily with this, as it has six speeds to choose from. Depending on the intensity needed, you can choose the “Quickest” button to really blend. This has 250 Watts of power and there is a built-in groove that lets you rest it over a bowl, so any drippings will fall back in the bowl. This includes traditional beaters and a whisk.
