If you happen to be in the market for a new hand mixer, may I recommend this one–the KitchenAid 9 speed. This little workhorse replaced the one that Charlie had for over 20 years. We have been needing a new hand mixer for a while now, and I would just put the beater back into the mixer body when it would fall out in a bowl of dough…frustrating, but I just kept putting it off and putting it off. Alas, my sweet friends, the Wards, gave me this one for me for my birthday recently, and I just love it. Clara has the 5 speed and researched the 9 speed and thought it would be a good one. Clara was right! Bye, bye old mixer, old friend.
This mixer is very quiet and light weight, but powerful! I haven’t done any bread dough with it, but it did beautifully at Christmas time with all the cookie dough mixing. Not a problem at all! You can easily shift the digital speeds with the touch of your thumb and you’ve got nine to work through so have fun. The cord swivels and that makes moving around easier because I sometimes switch hands in the middle of mixing.
So if you’re about ready to say goodbye to your old dinosaur, think about saying hello to KitchenAid’s 9 speed.
