I'm in the market for a new hand mixer having lost/misplaced my old one in a move.
I have a KitchenAid stand mixer, so I don't need a hand mixer to be a major workhorse, just something to do the job for smaller tasks when I don't want to drag out the KitchenAid which actually is more often than not - since I don't tend to do large baking/cooking very often. A hand mixer will probably get more overall use during the year.
It's been such a long time since I bought one and they sure have changed a lot and I'm quite confused. It doesn't have to have all the bells and whistles, but it does have to be reliable and comfortable in my hand.
