    Hand Mixer Recommendations

    So my hand mixer died yesterday. Thoughts on a new one? BF thought he could fix it.

    Wow that looks familiar. LOL. I think I've done that with few appliances in the past.

    Can't help you with a suggestion though since mine is a puke green 1970 GE hand mixer my mother gave me and it's still going strong.


      I'm pretty sure it's the law that you do not buy one, but instead must be gifted one, like with a fancy pen or set of measuring spoons. I'm also thinking ours just exists in the back of the cupboard somewhere as a mystery to who bought it and when, why that particular one, and how long it's been there. I know it is white.

          This is my preferred method for sure.

        I have an immersion blender and I love it. I’m talking about one of these.

          Bought my daughter a hand held KitchenAid a little over a year ago. Don't remember which model, but she likes it.

          I have one one these also. works great

        I usually start at The Wirecutter when looking for stuff like this but make sure to read the comments too. They often go for pricey stuff but the Competition section is useful too. Here's Hand Mixers https://www.nytimes.com/wirecutter/r...st-hand-mixer/


          I have an older Viking hand mixer, 9 speed, digital face. 250wt motor - it’s a horse, but I don’t use it often. But it works great when my wife or I do use it. Also nice to be able to wind the cord into the body housing.

            Left one probably smells like onions

            Hey, I can crush an onion with one simple squeeze.

          Wow, that’s quite the eh...hmmm...yeah...what a mess. LOL

          But sorry, I’m no help...I’ve not used a hand mixer in years. The closest I get is an immersion blender or whisk. The stand mixer handles everything else. I have a friend that has what I think is a kitchenaid and they seem to like it.


            It reminds me of a time many years ago when my uncle was mixing up some sort of batter with a hand mixer. Someone in those days had a weird design where the cord unplugged from the mixer end as well as the wall end. Well, my uncle came out of the kitchen and said "I almost killed myself". The cord unplugged from the mixer and fell into the batter and since my family are batter lickers from way back he started licking it off with it still plugged into the wall. So, no help at all helping you select a mixer but something about Christmas has me in a nostalgic mood.


              I cant speak of brands. But, from hand fatigue side. I no longer use the two beater electric mixer, i use a Braun stick, or counter stand mixer. I am so far happy with the Braun mixer, a lot less hand fatigue in holding that, then what I get with the standard 1950’s model design. So, if hand fatigue is a question....

                Cordless and never needs a recharge.


                  I have a kitchenaid which I really like. Barbara has an oster that still works well from before we were together.

                  Finally, A Great Portable Pellet Smoker

                  Green Mountain Grills Trek smoker

                  Green Mountain Grills Trek smoker

                  Green Mountain’s portable Trek Smoker is one mean tailgating and picnic machine. But it’s also gaining popularity with people who want to add a small, set it and forget it pellet smoker to their backyard arsenal. And with their WiFi capabilities you can control and monitor Trek from your smart phone or laptop.

                  The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                  The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

                  The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

                  Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

                  This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.
