I have been doing quite a bit of baking with Candace these days and I am so happy to tell you how pleased we are with the Hamilton Beach 62695 Hand Mixer. This mixer is so easy to use that even my four year old granddaughter does wonders mixing things up.

Hamilton Beach 62695 Hand Mixer
When Candace and I first ventured into the small kitchen appliance aisle in Target looking for a new hand mixer, I really did not have a specific brand or model in mind. I figured that it couldn't possibly be that tough to choose a hand mixer so why do research beforehand. Well, truth be told, there were too many to make a wise choice so I scratched the hand mixer purchase for the day, opting to ask a couple of my girlfriends which hand mixer they might recommend.
Two out of five suggested anything by Hamilton Beach and my best friend and neighbor down the road specifically recommended the Hamilton Beach 62695 Hand Mixer. I decided to go back to Target in search of this particular hand mixer because it came highly recommended. After all, the woman who praised this hand mixer donates much of her time baking cookies and pastries for the homeless men and women at out local community center; she would know better than anyone.
What's to Love
Our Hamilton Beach Hand Mixer is a real winner with me and my granddaughter. Even my sixteen year old son enjoys using this little sturdy hand mixer to bake his famous nutty chocolate chip cookies. In fact, my son sometimes seems to use the mixer more than I do! I love the fact that there are six different speeds for mixing!
It comes with two sets of stainless steel beaters, the newer wire beaters as well as the old fashioned type flat metal beaters. I like that it also comes with one single wire whisk for doing simple mixing jobs like beating eggs for omelettes and such. The flat metal beaters and the wire beaters are made of stainless which is very easy to clean.
I love the sleek very modern design of our white handy Hamilton Beach 62695 Hand Mixer because it can rest easily on the edge of a bowl or it will stand up on the table or countertop without fear of it falling over and making a mess. It's also pretty lightweight and fairly quiet. There are minimal vibrations while grasping and using this hand mixer. However, I do assist Candace while she is doing her part of the cookie making process since she doesn't have the strength in her little hands yet to hold the mixer as steady as I would like.
The Hamilton Beach Hand Mixer is also backed by a full money back guarantee if for any reason I am not totally satisfied with it. But, I am happy with this mixer. There is also a two year warranty against manufacturer defects and craftsmanship. We've been using ours a few months now and so far there has been no signs of poor construction or damage to any of the parts including the motor.
The motor is quite powerful,too. I love that I didn't have to spend a small fortune on a more expensive mixer and that I have all the power that I need to easily convert flour, sugar and other ingredients into sometimes very thick pasty doughs. Excellent! This is perhaps the best hand mixer that we've ever owned, opting for cheap no name brands in the past that do very simple beating of eggs or puddings.

Easy to Use
The entire unit is well made and quite durable. Unfortunately, my granddaughter has dropped our little power-packed hand mixer on more than one occasion and happily this baby keeps on working without any complaints.
Did I mention how easy it is to use this hand mixer? The speed controls are located on the top of the unit and they can easily be adjusted by simply flicking my thumb to change speeds or we can obtain a bit of increased power by flicking another little switch found just below the speed controls. I have used this boosted power button after adding additional flour to a mix when it becomes a little more difficult to mix when the dough really begins to thicken up. There is a lot of power boost and may not even be necessary so I suggest experimenting a bit with your new mixer. Hamilton Beach really did think of everything when designing this unit for consumers looking for speed, power and ease of use.
Final Thoughts and Recommendations
Happily, the Hamilton Beach 62695 Hand Mixer is a great value at an affordable price. I couldn't have asked for a better hand mixer with super features. I am quite pleased with how easy this mixer is to use by simply flicking two buttons for power. The extra set of beaters is an added benefit, offering a wonderful choice of old and new style to consumers like you and me.
I highly recommend buying and using this fine product.
