Dualit Hand Mixer

Pros: 400W, neat storage, balloon whisk, attractive design
Cons: heavier to hold

Overall rating: 4.5/5

With its retractable electric cable, the Dualit offered the neatest storage solution of the hand mixers we tested. Twisting the base of the mixer draws the cord into the casing and the three pins of the dangling plug can then be slotted into the underside of the mixer.

At 400W the Dualit has decent power and its extra-long beaters are ideal for reaching to the bottom of deep bowls and jugs. It comes in colour choices of chrome or canvas and looks and feels solid. The heavier weight and broad handle may not be ideal for all users but the mixer is well balanced and rests easily in the hand with no tilting.

The manual has a useful table recommending appropriate uses and speeds for the different attachments. The attachments are described as dishwasher safe but only at low temperature, plus they must be removed before the drying cycle. In practice it's easier to wash them by hand in hot soapy water.

Eject button: yes
Speeds: 4 speeds
Weight:1.3 kg
Wattage: 400W
Size: 9.5x20x30cm
