KitchenAid 9-Speed Digital Hand Mixer Review


The KitchenAid 9 Speed Digital Hand Mixer is pricier than most hand mixers but it outperforms other mixers in many ways. One of its best features is the slow start function. Professional bakers and home cooks are familiar with the dreaded splatter when starting the mixing process, especially when working with more liquid mixtures.


The slow start function reduces splatter.


For normal everyday kitchen tasks, ranging from beating and whipping to making pastry, cakes, cookies, and fillings, this hand mixer is ideal.


The hand-mixer attachments are made from stainless steel. They are dishwasher-safe for fast and easy clean-up. The mixer comes with two standard beaters and 2 Dough Hooks, a Pro Whisk, Blending Rod, and Storage Bag to neatly protect and organize everything.


The KitchenAid KHM926CA comes with an ergonomically designed handle that is bent towards the back rather than parallel to the mixer body. The design makes it easier for you to grip and maneuver the hand mixer, reducing stress on the hand.


KitchenAid Hand Mixer Control Panel

The Control panel on top of the mixer is in an easy thumb’s reach. From top to bottom: ejector button (releases beaters), digital speed indicator, increase/decrease speed controls (arrows), “Stop” button.


The KitchenAid 9-speed hand mixer is digitally controlled. This model has the most number of speed operation; other hand mixers are 5-speed or 7-speed.


The KitchenAid KHM926CA has a slow-start option to prevent splatter when starting the mixer. At the highest setting, this hand-mixer can easily fluff up your egg whites or whipped cream.


A digital display of the speed setting tells you exactly what speed is selected.


The 9-speed KitchenAid hand mixer is easy to clean. The surface of the mixer body is very smooth and has no grooves or seams that can trap dirt. All you have to do is wipe it clean. The cord is round and also easy to wipe clean.


Measuring 6-7/16 inches high, 3-1/2 inches wide and 7-1/2 inches deep, the KitchenAid 9-speed Professional Hand Mixer is compact and does not take up too much space. It comes with a plastic body and weighs about 3 lbs. This 9-speed KitchenAid hand mixer is lightweight and will make it easier for you to mix cookie dough and cake batter. The hand mixer is light enough for most people.


The hand mixer is designed to sit on its end when not in use. This helps to free up precious counter space.

It’s the best hand mixer for making cakes, cookies, and pastries. The 9-speed hand mixer is ideal for small kitchens with limited counter space.
