Hamilton Beach 62650 Review
Reviewers describe this mixer as solid, practical, and powerful. With a 290-watt motor, it may be slightly heavy for some users, but many still consider it convenient and easy to use. It comes with two types of beaters, a whisk, and a snap-on case to keep all the attachments together.
Hamilton Beach 62650 reviews suggest that this is a good hand mixer for basic baking and even for thicker dough and batter, thanks to a 290-watt motor -- the most powerful among the mixers we researched. Reviewers also note the sleek stainless-steel design. The Hamilton Beach 62650 (starting at $26, Amazon) has standard features, including traditional beaters, plus additional wire beaters, a whisk, and a storage case for attachments. Reviewers weighing in via Wayfair, an online retailer, have found the case convenient and note that it lessens the chance of losing or misplacing attachments. A bowl rest is designed to balance the mixer on the edge of a bowl in between uses, although we didn't see much mention of how well it works in reviews.
Six settings, along with a power burst button, allow this mixer to perform various mixing duties that call for different speeds. However, it seems to fall victim to a common problem among budget models: Even the lowest speed isn't low enough, according to Hamilton Beach 62650 reviews at Wayfair and on Amazon, and the higher speeds can create virtual volcanoes of ingredients. One reviewer has a simple fix -- a large, deep bowl -- and doesn't consider the speed a deal breaker. Some users also complain that this mixer is on the heavy side; the listed shipping weight is 4.3 pounds.
Users have found this particular hand mixer a good choice for duties too small for a stand mixer. It seems to perform well whether mixing thin batter or thick cookie dough. Overall Hamilton Beach 62650 reviews indicate that this is a powerful, high-quality mixer. Even considering the complaints, you should get your money's worth.
