Lakeland 2 in 1 hand and stand mixer
Pros: stand included, lightweight, compact, turbo button, versatile
Cons: no balloon whisk
Overall rating: 4.5/5
The Lakeland Hand Mixer doubles as a compact stand mixer. Once clipped into the stand and turned on, the hand mixer oscillates from side to side while the bowl below rotates.This ensures the machine whisks and kneads ingredients evenly.
The stand mixer has an optional 'mixing plate' which attaches to the side and scrapes splattered ingredients back into the middle. But in our tests some mixture got stuck behind the plate attachment so we left it off. Without it, the rotating bowl, oscillating arm and spinning beaters were enough to draw ingredients back in.
At 300W with a 2.8 litre bowl this stand mixer is designed for light mixing jobs - whipping cream, egg whites, cake batters and loose doughs. The hand mixer can be used on its own and is lightweight and comfortable to hold. The advantage of the stand is that it frees your hands for other tasks. A good option for those who find holding a mixer difficult, or those looking for a mixer with more versatility.
