For my darling’s birthday gift, I decided on Kenwood’s HB791 hand-mixer in raspberry red. It totally rocks my white kitchen.
It’s solidly made of aluminum and stainless steel so none of that flimsy plastic stuff. The good thing is you can use it right into the pot so that saves time when you can make a nice tomato or vegetable soup that is easily diced into a creamy soup right at the pot. The detachable attachments make it easy to keep away the main unit after using it. It’s attractive looks means that it can sit on your counter top without looking out of place.
Power is ample so there’s plenty of times when you will be using it turned down but it’s there when you’re going to make mashed potato or something heavy and it’ll be available. It’s a bit on the heavy side but the weight makes it easier to control and manage. I also got the hand mixer (HM791) along but that hasn’t seen use yet. I’ll be saving up for the stand mixer. It’s no kitchen-aid but it’ll suffice.
