Plus, you’ll never lose an attachment if you use the built-in storage case like you’re supposed to (yes, we’re your mom now).

Not only does this hand mixer come with beaters, a dough hook, and a whisking attachment, but it also has a built-in timer with a pause button that helps you keep track of exactly how long you’ve been mixing something.

It has five speed settings, plus a “turbo boost” that gives you an extra burst of speed. It’s also extra lightweight and easy to maneuver.

It also comes with traditional beaters and a whisk attachment, but no dough hooks. The snap-on storage case is perfect for keeping all the parts and pieces together.
