CHOICE Expert Rating View more details.

The CHOICE Expert rating is made up of performance (60% of overall score) and ease of use (40% of overall score).

Performance score View more details.

The performance score is the average of the whisking egg white and mixing cake batter scores. We didn't test the dough hooks, as we've found in previous tests that hand mixers don't have the power required to cope with kneading the dough. The performance score accounts for 60% of the overall score.

Whisking score View more details.

We use the beaters to whisk egg whites to form stiff peaks. Where supplied, we also uses the wire whisk attachment.

Beater score View more details.

The beaters are used to assess how well the hand mixers combine dry and wet ingredients, to form an even and smooth cake mix.

Ease of use score View more details.

How easy it is to use the controls, read the labelling, insert and remove mixing tools, stand the mixer during preparation, store the unit with accessories and clean. We also assess general comfort, balance and control, hand grip and strain on the wrist during operation. The ease of use score accounts for 40% of the overall score.
