We hope this article finally helped you decide the product for your baking needs. But before going ahead and purchasing it, we recommend you to read the following safety information to safely use your hand mixer.
Unplug: Always unplug your mixer after use. Since most of the buttons on the mixer are of the one touch feature, it may be prone to accidental operation.
Chord safety: Most of the products here have appreciable chord length, but make sure that they are safely away from the beaters.
Stand off distance: When the mixer is in operation, make sure that the blades are not touching the bottom of the vessel. This can reduce the life of the motor and the vessels are prone to getting scratches.
