If you mean a slow start then speeding up to operating speed then I don't think you will get one. My Breville has four speeds plus a high and low (8 in total) but it switches to the set speed from the off position straight away. Most hand mixers have a number of speeds available.
If you want a really slow mix then the only answer is a stand mixer. (in my opinion - but someone may know better!!)

What you need is a Gordon Ramsay Black Gordon Ramsay Black Bamix by Bamix Of Switzerland, they aren't cheap though I bought one about 2-3 years ago and they last forever also you will find you use it more than you think. It has 2 speeds and i tend not to use the fast one much, i make mayonnaise in 12 sec, cool eh! Also i use it for blending sauces, chopping, mouses, and one really cool thing it can make normal sugar into either caster or icing just depends on how long you blend for.
Hope that helps..

I thought a Bamix was a hand blender!! Isn't a hand mixer usually a motor fitted with two whisk attachments? I use mine for small cake mixes or whisking egg whites etc.

Hi Terfyn, yes the Bamix is a blender and not a mixer. I also thing you are right about hand mixers in your previous comment. I have the James Martin one and that does start quite quickly. MA Shepherd perhaps should be looking for a small stand mixer, although not sure which one to recommend :-(

It really depends on what M A Shepherd wants to do. The Breville I have was the mixing part of a stand mixer, The hand mixer mixed and the bowl rotated using its own motor. It was underpowered for heavy mixing such a dough mixing so I bought a Severin 3888 stand mixer to replace it but kept the handheld part for whisking duties.

I'd recommend the Kenwood Kmix handmixer. It's a bit on the heavy side but very solidly made and able to handle bread dough as well as lighter mixes. I've had mine for about four months now and I love it. It has five speeds and a pulse setting.

The Braun Multiquick might be what you're looking for. It has 15 speeds plus a turbo pulse. I bought mine after seeing a John Lewis celebrity chef demo where they were using it, It's not the cheapest on the market but I haven't regretted buying it and very rarely need to use my food processor as it's so versatile. Hope this helps.
