      Effective hand mixer which can be picked up for a bargain price

      You may not be able to imagine me standing in the kitchen, mixer in hand, creating a deliciously moist sponge cake - but I can assure you that it does happen (ok - my cake-making only occurs once or twice a year, but that's not the point). The hand mixer in question is the 'Kenwood HM190' - a small and efficient device which can be purchased online for the very reasonable price of £12.

      Design & Appearance
      - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
      Constructed from sturdy white plastic, the HM190 is neither ugly or nice looking - it's simply visually 'acceptable'. The top of the mixer features a grey on / off switch which also functions as the selector for the mixer's three speed settings. Next to the power switch is a button which is used to remove the two 'beaters' for cleaning. Said beaters are made from a fairly thin metal (although they're nice and solid) and fit into the underside of the device with a reassuring click. At around a metre and a half in length, the cable is plenty long enough for kitchen use, and should have no problems in reaching the closest plug socket.

      Using the mixer
      - - - - - - - - - - -
      In use, the Kenwood's 100w motor mixes up even the most stubborn cake mixture with relative ease - although I have to admit that I have it set on the fastest setting the majority of the time. The mixer is quite noisy - but then all the mixers I have used in the past have been, and this one is actually quieter than the last model that I owned. Cleaning the mixer is really easy - as previously mentioned, the beaters are forged from thin metal and this makes them simple and hygienic to wash up.

      Final Word
      - - - - - - - -
      All in all, the Kenwood HM190 is a great little mixer which is reliable and efficient. It's not the best looking device of it's nature on the market - but then a hand mixer is usually kept in a cupboard rather than on display, so for me looks aren't an issue - recommended.
