You can handmix ingredients all day, but your cake, cream, or ingredients might not be mixed in the way they need to be. Ever bake a cake with unmixed ingredients? It doesn\u2019t come out well. That\u2019s what the KitchenAid KHM512GU can accomplish without so much effort, making it an ideal candidate as one of the best kitchen appliances to own.\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - KitchenAid KHM512GU Review\r\nWith 5 speeds available at the press of a button, lightweight and easy to use, this mixer is versatile, making it your one-stop appliance for whipping up cream, potatoes, mix and so on.\r\n\r\nPerformance\r\nFor such a lightweight and compact hand mixer, the KitchenAid Ultra Power Hand Mixer Guava Glaze is surprisingly powerful\u2014not quite like a stand mixer, but still strong. Its power comes from the speeds it has. Instead of just one, it has 5, making it versatile and open to whipping up various foods. For example, setting it to speed one is good for whipping up egg whites, while heavy cream would need something like speed five. It even paired nicely with a Dash DEC005BK by mixing up hard boiled eggs made by it.\r\nDesign\r\nAnother surprise was the KitchenAid Speed Ultra Power Hand Mixer\u2019s build quality. It\u2019s a rather hefty piece of hardware. Its build quality doesn\u2019t appear cheap, even though it only weighs two pounds. Having dimensions of 8 x 3.5 x 6 inches also makes it easy to wield. What we really liked was the lockable swivel cord, which can lock into place, left or right, to avoid getting in your way. Unfortunately, it only comes bundled with lightweight beaters; heavy beaters are sold separately. Either way, they\u2019re still stainless steel turbo beater accessories.\r\nValue\r\nFor $80, you\u2019ve got yourself a really great hand mixer, one that will help you approach ingredients easier than before as opposed to hand mixing. It\u2019s powerful, accommodates several speeds, and has really good build quality. It\u2019s a solid piece of hardware, there\u2019s not doubt about that. Compared to other hand mixers, you\u2019re getting a lot more value here. It\u2019s also a really good companion to have when using an Instant Pot Duo 7-in-1 or Ninja FD401 Foodi 8-qt. 9-in-1 Deluxe XL Cooker & Air Fryer. You\u2019ll even save a bit of money with free shipping included.\r\nKitchenAid KHM512GU Review Wrap Up\r\nThe KitchenAid KHM512GU is your one-stop appliance for mixing. It\u2019s various speeds can handle a wide variety of ingredients, though we wish the heavy beaters were included for more unique meals. Still, its build quality is really good, and the swivel cord lock is a genius design choice. You don\u2019t have to fight your mixer!
