Hi, I am planning to buy a hand mixer to whip cream for cake decoration- I am a bit confused between Philips 175 watt or Tefal prep line 350 watt. Looking forward to recommendations
Thanks!

I went through two hand mixers because the beater was held together with plastic. Beware, the plastic cracked and broke really easily. Probably because I put them in the dishwasher, but who wants to wash them by hand!

I have a BODUM Bistro Electric Hand Mixer, Lime Green and find it not only colourful, but sturdy and efficient. In addition to the two beaters, there are two dough hooks and a balloon whisk. On the base there is pull-out handle which winds up the power cord. Not one to make a splash, it starts up smoothly and has a five-speed lever on the top of the unit.

Like a lot of other people I made the mistake of buying a cheap mixer at first.

I have a Dualit Hand Mixer Chrome 88400. Very easy to store on its end and cord rewinds inside. Also has a plug storage, so no dangling cord when not in use. Comes with 2 beaters, 2 dough hooks and a balloon whisk. Ejecting tools is very easy, I have arthritis in my hand. Chrome finish is very classy.

I have a Andrew James hand mixer I bought through Amazon. I'd never heard of the make but it is very good for the price.

I would recommend Kenwood. I have a LIDL Hand mixer but I guess you can't find that online. But I had also bought the triblade set from Kenwood which includes a whisk which whips creams quite good. If you're into style Kenwood has the Kmix range which is nice. Here's a link

buy a dualit, they are really robust. It has plenty of power, and a number of speed settings, and it stows away well, with the plug fixing into the machine. - genius.. I have been through about 5 mixers, and this is by far the best.

I can recommend a TESCO hand mixer it doesn't get hot, and has six speeds as well as a pulse, cakes, double cream everything sucessful. Great, and before that I had a LIDL superb, lasted for ages then I couldn't replace it.

Dear Mr Philip R Gardner
Do TESCO do a version of this mixer that doe's get hot and has more speeds and no pulse? And I am very interested in buying a LIDL SUPERB maybe I could have your old one.

Dear Tembo
You seem a little Cavalier with your mixers, 5 you say that you have got through indeed! and in this time of austerity.

I have had a kenwood Kmix hand machine for ages and it is fantastic, much better than any other one I have had in 46 years of marriage. Unfortunately I have very bad arthiritis, I have now invested in a Kenwood titanium stand mixer and that is wonderful. Should you choose to buy one of these I found Amazon were nearly 150 cheaper than the other places I looked at.

J.P, thanks for the review. Following my glowing report on the Bodum, I found that the whisk shafts were peeling near the insertion points, and had to return it. I would be interested to know if you had any peeling problems with the kMix.

I have had a Kenwood hand mixer for the last 30 years and still works fine, probs cannot say the same for the newer ones these days. But I do agree with the post about the Bodum as they do look very sturdy, I have the Bodum coffee grinder and that is very good.

Another vote for the Kenwood K-mix here! I bought one to replace my old Kenwood mixer after 10 years of heavy service, and it's fantastic. My cakes are much lighter, and loads of people comment on them. The mixer is quite heavy, as you would expect from something with so much power, so may not be great for people with arthritis etc.

I noticed that it's the K-mix which is supplied to contestants on the Great British Bake-off. If it's good enough for Mary Berry....!

Try the Kenwood HM320 only 20GBP listed in our area as being available from John Lewis, Comet and Sainsbury's. I bought one similar to this about 11 years ago from Lakeland and it's still going strong.
