It’s a rare occasion when an active kitchen doesn’t need the utility of handheld mixers . Portable, hand held mixers are used to mix products that are more of a liquid consistency containing milk, eggs, butter, cream, etc. Their attachments are thinner and wiry and operate at faster speeds than countertop mixers. Handheld mixers are great for creating smooth consistencies in preparing cooked, mashed vegetables. Tasks that require more than a whisk can provide are perfect for handheld mixers. Think of mixing eggs for omelets or scrambled eggs or whipping heavy cream for your favorite desert. These mixers are perfect for creating the perfect consistency of mashed potatoes or butternut squash.
