Review: Hamilton Beach 6-Speed Stand Mixer

Hamilton Beach 6 Speed Stand Mixer

The wonderful people at Hamilton Beach sent a stand mixer and hand mixer for me to try. They did give them to me for free, but all the opinions in this post are my own.  They are letting me do a giveaway too, so make sure to scroll to the bottom of this post to enter to win your own Hamilton Beach 6-Speed Stand Mixer.

On Hamilton Beach’s website it runs about $129, but you can find it online at Target for $69 – 99. I always compare prices before I buy any appliance because it can save you a ton of time and money.

This mixer is a step up from the stand mixers that have two beaters and is a great mid-level all purpose mixer. The motor is a 300 watt which will do the job on cookies, cakes and other baked goods. It will also knead lighter breads perfectly with the dough hook.

I found it more of a challenge for a whole wheat spelt bread dough, but in the end it did the job. I have to say that I push my professional stand mixer to it’s limits because of my heavy bread doughs, but I’ve also made a food processor smoke so I may just be hard on my kitchen appliances.

It includes 3 attachments: a whisk for whipping up some coconut cream, a beater for batters and even includes a dough hook to make bread. The dough hook is made out of metal as is the whisk, but the beater is made of plastic.

I think with normal household use these attachments will hold up just fine and that the 300 watt motor is perfect for normal family usage.

I love its 3 1/2 quart bowl, because my professional mixer can be too large for making a half batch of cupcakes. I will definitely keep it on my counter and think I’ll use it for most of my small batch baking.

Even tilted it fits under my cabinets and it’s narrow enough to wait out of the way until you are ready to use it. (Please excuse the wires of my snazzy under cabinet lights.)

One of my favorite things is the diagram right on the side of the mixer tells you which attachment to use for what type of food and even what speeds you can use that attachment on. There’s also a fold setting that’s perfect to keep you from over-mixing your baked goods.

I will be doing a separate post about Hamilton Beach’s hand mixer and it will include a giveaway as well so be sure to watch for it.

  1. I don’t actually have a stand mixer but I would love to because I find myself doing more and more gluten-free baking and it would be great.

  2. I just have my retro Sunbeam Mixmaster which works fine for much of my mixing needs, but occasionally I could use the extra oomph! from above (top beaters which spin). Thanks for this chance to win!

  3. Jennifer says:

    I love a stand mixer. Nothing is worse than hand mixing.

  4. Shara Blagrave says:

    I bake quite a bit and dont know what I would do without the stand mixer. Mine is definitely showing wear so this would be a great upgrade!

  5. Gillian says:

    I think it depends on the task – but I usually prefer a hand or stand mixer to wooden spoon! Or god forbid, whisk to try to do something like whisk coconut cream into whipped cream. lol.

  10. Sherry Kaplan says:

    I mostly make breads in my very old kitchen aid that has seen better days. Long ago, when my son was 2, he pulled the mixer off the counter. He was fine and the mixer dented, but still works. I also love it for frosting, but that’s just an occasional treat.

  15. Danielle says:

    I strongly prefer a hand mixer almost always because we have very limited counter space, but there are just some things that stand mixers are better for. And there are times when I’m standing there with the hand mixer staring into space and wishing I could walk away and just do something else for a while.

  16. Jessica says:

  21. I would use it to make bread and pizza dough. It would make the mixing and kneading parts easier.

  22. I have wanted a stand mixer for a long time, but don’t really have room for the big ones. This would be perfect!

    I like a stand mixer for certain things but otherwise I like to mix by hand…

  31. Although I don’t have a stand mixer, I grew up having access to my Mom’s old fashioned Kitchen Aid stand mixer. I loved that thing! It’s an antique now and the parts can’t be replaced. As much as I bake, a stand mixer would be an asset to our family’s kitchen for sure!
