KitchenAid Hand Mixer – Ultra Power Plus 7-speed

KitchenAid make excellent hand mixers. And in my opinion, a hand mixer is one of those ‘must have’ gadgets.

The KitchenAid Ultra Power Plus Hand Mixer is strong enough to mix stiff cookie dough while being lightweight and quiet to use. It gives you a consistent mixing speed thanks to KitchenAid’s electronic sensor that automatically adjusts the power flow.

I find that a hand mixer is ideal for those times when you really can’t be bothered dragging the large mixer out, usually when I want to whip up some cream or other small mixing task. Another of the great features of this mixer is that when you turn it on it starts slowly so that you don’t get ingredients being splashed everywhere. And it has a user friendly digital pad that has  7 speeds so all your mixing requirements are covered.

The ergonomically designed handle is comfortable to hold and  it makes holding the mixer easy, for even those longer mixing jobs, and the mixer has a functional, wide, stable heel rest.
KitchenAid Cook for the Cure® Ultra Power Plus 7-speed Hand Mixer, Pink
Once you have finished mixing, the beaters simply release with a touch of a button.

The beaters are thin and don’t have that center post, which makes cleaning the beaters easy as you don’t get that hard to clean clogging in the center.

This hand mixer also comes as part of the ‘Cook for the Cure’ range of pink KitchenAid products where KitchenAid donates money to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. So not only are you buying a quality functional product but you will be helping in the fight against Breast Cancer.

The pink mixer looks so cute, but it is also available in red and white.

Kitchenaid 9 Speed Hand Mixer Review

kitchenaid-9-speed-hand-mixerI must admit that I like hand mixers. I like them because they are quick and easy to put together and they don’t take up a lot of space like say a stand mixer.

Kitchenaid have developed a superb hand mixer that is a perfect accessory for any home kitchen. The Kitchenaid 9 Speed Hand Mixer is just one of those must haves for anyone serious about their cooking.

This hand mixer won’t get through heavy bread dough but you will be able to mix just about anything else in this powerful model.

What We Like

  • It has an amazing 9 speed settings and there is a smooth transitioning between speeds.
  • The slow start option means that you won’t get food splattering around your kitchen when you first start up the mixer.
  • Also includes a whisk attachment for beating delicate items like cream and eggs.
  • Very easy to clean. Kitchenaid have designed this well by providing smooth surfaces and no areas where food can get clogged.
  • It’s solid but also light weight so you won’t tire easily.
  • It’s also relatively quiet.

What We Didn’t Like

  • The price may be just out of reach for some but this is a quality mixer that will see a lot of use.
