When it comes to kitchen gadgets, stand mixers are usually most folks’ main point of reference. For those who have limited counter space or just don’t see the need in splurging on the expensive countertop contraption, electric hand mixers get the job done better.

In fact, this $20 Hamilton Beach option has been rated by over 22,000 Amazon shoppers, with one of them even admitting that it “works better” than this much more expensive KitchenAid mixer.

Owning a pricey stand mixer is considered a badge of honor for many home cooks. And while they’re certainly stunning countertop attractions, they’re not really needed.

Respected food publication Eater even recently published an article fittingly titled “You don’t actually need a stand mixer.” Brittany Ross, the author of the piece, explained that “a good old fashioned hand mixer does just about everything you’d want to and then some.”

With this knowledge in mind, investing in a quality hand mixer is worth the investment and, most of all, this option won’t put a huge dent in your pocket.

Beaters and whisk attachments come with this six-speed Hamilton Beach electric hand mixer. Also, for added convenience, the gadget comes with a storage case that snaps onto its base.

So, just how much do shoppers love it? In addition to receiving the coveted Amazon’s Choice label, the Hamilton Beach hand mixer has amassed over 17,000 five-star ratings. One shopper even called it the “best mixer ever.”

Another shopper who described herself as “The most un-homemaker, un-baker kind of woman” even admitted, “I love this little mixer. It hits on all cylinders!” The same shopper even took things a step further and added, “it motivates me to learn to bake.”

The only con a few shoppers had for this mixer is that it can be “a little loud” while on higher speeds. However, both reviewers looked past this with one adding “this made me love baking.”
