Hamilton Beach 62695V Product Features
This mixer was physically one of the largest models we looked at, additionally it’s styling felt a bit dated. If you want something that reminds you of Grandma that’s a plus, if you want a sleek modern kitchen, it’s a minus. At 2.5 pounds it’s on the heavy side, depending on how often you use it that may be an important factor.
It has a 6 speed 225 watt AC motor, with a speed boost button. The speeds are controlled with a thumb wheel you dial forwards or backwards to speed up and slow down. While the speeds felt fast enough when used on a thick cookie dough or bread dough the AC motor lacked the power and started to bind up. There was no dough hook, but a single beater really struggled with a bread dough. Additionally, the beaters seemed to spaced very closely together making it more difficult than it needed to be on thicker mixtures. There is no soft start on this model, something we were instantly reminded of when we used it for the first time.
The build quality was actually better than we were expecting. You’ll never confuse this with the Breville Hand Mixer, or KitchenAid 9 Speed Mixer, but it’s not something that feels like it’s going to fall apart after a few uses.
The biggest advantage of this mixer is its price, at $25.00 it’s nearly 1/3 of our Best Rated Hand Mixer. If you don’t do use a hand mixer often and stay away from the thick cookie and bread doughs this hand mixer is something to consider.
- Value priced
- 275 Watt Motor
- 6 Speeds
