Recommended products
Recommended Expand to view more details.

These are the best mixers in our tests. We recommend currently available mixers that score at least 80% overall.

Test results
CHOICE Expert Rating (%) Expand to view more details.

This overall score is made up of performance (60%) and ease of use (40%).

Performance (%) Expand to view more details.

We whisk egg whites using the whisk attachment; mix a cake using the K-beater, heavy-duty beater or scraper beater; and make pizza dough using the dough hook attachment. All tests are weighted equally.

Ease of use (%) Expand to view more details.

We assess how easy it is to use the controls and read the labelling, lift and lower the head, remove and replace the bowl and mixing tools, add ingredients while the machine is operating and clean removable parts and the main unit.

Whisk score (%) Expand to view more details.

We assess the whisk tool by whisking egg white.

Beater score (%) Expand to view more details.

We assess the beater by mixing cake.

Dough hook score (%) Expand to view more details.

We assess the dough hook by mixing pizza dough.

Noise (dB) Expand to view more details.

Noise is measured at arm's length from the mixer when it's operating at its highest speed.

Type
Single/twin tool attachment Expand to view more details.

Single tool attachments can handle heavier loads and can knead dough. This type is for the serious and regular cook, and ideal for batch preparation. Twin tool attachments are a cheaper alternative for the occasional cook, but if you're making dough you'll need to knead it by hand.
