Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

QWhat is a 'pulse function'?
APulse turns the mixer on for very short periods at full power, allowing you to make the finishing touches to mixes, or blend stubborn parts of a mixture.
QWhat are common accessories for mixers?
AMixers may come with any or all of these standard attachments: a kneading tool for dough, a set of whisks or beaters, a citrus pressing tool, a tool for mincing meat, or a pasta maker.
QWhy do some mixers not have an entry for speeds?
ASome mixers don't have set speed levels (low, medium, high, etc) but instead a knob to gradually increase the speed from low to very high.

Mixer Buying Guide

Mixers are kitchen appliances that use a motor powered whisk or paddle to effortlessly mix and combine ingredients. They are used primarily for making cake batter, bread dough, pasty and desserts. Unlike blenders or food processors, they are not designed to cut or puree ingredients, but instead to whisk or knead far quickly and more efficiently than any human could. If you’ve ever felt your arms hurt from trying to whisk up homemade mayonnaise, then this is the appliance for you!

There are two main types of mixers on the market - handheld and stand mixers:

Handheld mixers: these devices consist of one or two whisks placed into a plastic or metal casing, with a button or trigger to activate them. The whisks can be immersed in the ingredients, and the whisks will mix far more efficiently than if done by hand. Handheld mixers are smaller and far cheaper than stand mixers, but are less powerful than their larger brethren. Also most handheld mixers only use whisk attachments - this is fine for most baking and kitchen prep tasks you’ll need, but won’t work for making bread dough or kneading.

Stand mixers: these mixers consist of motor-powered whisks, which are built into an arm and stand, allowing the whisks to be lowered into the attached bowl for mixing. They are far heavier machines, and much more expensive than handheld mixers, but are far more powerful and capable of a larger range of functions, such as kneading dough. Because they are heavy, stable machines they are far less likely to make a mess while mixing at high speeds, though of course this means they also take up a sizeable space on your kitchen work surface. However if you find yourself baking cakes or bread regularly, a proper stand mixer will save you countless hours of manual mixing and kneading!

Capacity

This attribute only applies to tabletop mixers, but is an important consideration - the bowl capacity will determine how much food/ingredients can be mixed at one time. The tabletop mixers on our site range from small 0.5L mixers (which would be most useful for sauces and small batters, such as cupcakes or muffins) to enormous 5L mixers (which will handle everything you could need, including the biggest cakes or bread dough enough for several loaves at once).

Power Levels/Speeds

All our mixers have a power rating, measured in Watts (W). The higher the power level, the more efficient the appliances will be at mixing and kneading. This in turn leads to smoother mixes, well-kneaded doughs, and better results!

Many of the models on our site also have multiple speed settings. This is important because different recipes require different speeds - making mayonnaise for instance requires a fairly slow speed, while cake batter can be mixed at a faster speed. The instruction manual with your machine will give better information on the specific speed to use for each type of cooking.

Included Accessories

Finally, many models of mixer come with additional accessories to increase the functions performed by the appliance. This can include dough hooks for more efficient kneading of bread dough, beaters specifically made for eggs, or a spatula for scraping out batter and dough from the bowl. They may also include chopper attachment for easily chopping small quantities of nuts, herbs or fruit.

While not necessities, these extras can make your cooking more efficient and easier, so are worth bearing in mind when choosing between models.

The top three mixer brands are Morphy Richards, KitchenAid and Braun. Morphy Richards has an average rating of 95%, KitchenAid has an average rating of 94% and Braun has an average rating of 92%.

Biggest Mixer Retailers

The biggest mixer retailer by number of products currently for sale is eBay. We found 75 current mixer offers from eBay. The second biggest mixer retailer is Amazon US with 36 offers. That means eBay is more than twice as big as Amazon US when it comes to mixers. Overstock is the third biggest retailer with 14 current offers.

When Are Most New Mixers Released?

March to May is the most common period for new mixers to be released in. For the latest mixer technology you may want to consider waiting until March 2018. Alternatively you might be able to buy one of the current mixers cheaper in March once the latest models have been released. Last year most new mixers were released in May, with 43 new mixers released that month. December was the biggest month in 2016 for new mixers, with 44 new mixers released that month. 24 new mixers were released in March 2015 making it the biggest month that year for new mixer releases.

How Fast Do Mixer Prices Drop After Release?

New mixers drop in price by an average of 3% in the first 6 months after they wer first released. That means a saving of $5 on a typical $162 new mixer if you wait 6 months before buying.

Powers

This represents the power level of the mixer, measured in watts.

The powers of mixers range from 65W to 1,600W. The powers of most mixers range from 220W to 370W. The BoschMMBH6P6BDE has the biggest power. This mixer is a 1,600W mixer and is on sale for $554.58. The mixer with the smallest power is the BoschMMBH6P6BDE, which is an 85W mixer and is priced at $99.99.

A larger power level means that the motor in the mixer is more powerful, leading to faster and more efficient mixing.

Bowl Capacities

This measures how much can fit in the mixer's bowl, measured in litres.

Across the range of mixers, the bowl capacities range from 0.45L to 7.9L. The bowl capacities of the majority of mixers range from 4.2L to 4.9L. The KitchenAidKSM7586P has the biggest bowl capacity. This mixer is a 7.9L capacity mixer and sells for $475.00. The KitchenAidKSM7586P, which is priced at $554.58, has the smallest bowl capacity and is a 2L capacity mixer.

A bigger capacity means that you can mix more ingredients at once, making it easier to cook large amount of food.

Types

Amongst new mixers, the most popular type is immersion. We found 109 mixers that are immersion mixers. We found 109 mixers that are tabletop mixers, making tabletop the second most common type amongst new mixers.

Speed Levels

This is the number of speed levels the mixer is capable of mixing at.

Comparing all mixers, the speed levels range from 1 to 16. The speed levels of the majority of mixers range from 5 to 7. The NescoHM-350 has the most speed level. This mixer is a 16 speed level mixer and currently retails for $44.49. The NescoHM-350 has the least speed level. This mixer is a 1 speed level mixer and can be purchased for $71.01.

More speeds on your mixer mean that is it more versatile, and can handle ingredients that require slow, gentle mixing as well as those that require fast, vigorous blending.

Colours

White is the most common colour amongst new mixers. We found 95 mixers that are mixers that have a White coloured. We found 62 mixers that are mixers that have a Black coloured, making Black the second most popular colour amongst new mixers.

Biggest Mixer Retailers

We found 75 current offers for mixers from eBay making it the biggest mixer retailer. That is more than twice as big as the second biggest retailer, Amazon US for whom we found 36 current offers for mixers. The third biggest retailer is Overstock with 14 current mixer offers.
