In a kitchen, a hand mixer is indispensable, no matter if you want to make whipped cream, make a dough for buns or use it for cooking. Almost all models come with beaters and dough hooks for different purposes.
To see how powerful the engine in the hand mixer is, you must look at how many Watt (W) it is equipped with. For example, a powerful engine is good if you want to work with heavy things like doughs or cakes. In addition to getting a more powerful engine in the slightly more expensive models, you also get more options regarding accessories. Some models also come with hand blender, onion chopper and measuring cup.
