What people are saying

With more than 10,000 reviews and a 4.7 star rating, this hand mixer is loved due to its power and reliability from a kitchen brand loved by many. 

“I am very pleased with my mixer! It is small and lightweight, but it mixes powerfully. The beaters are easy to install and release, and though the whisk-like design of the beaters looks more delicate than the old standard beaters, they are very efficient. I was able to make my mashed potatoes, guacamole, and pancake mix smooth and creamy, no lumps, in less than a minute. I love this little mixer… it’s small (packs away easily), lightweight, easy to handle and powerful,” says one fan.

“This little hand mixer knocks the pants off my last brand! It makes mashed potatoes a breeze. Not to mention how easy cleanup is. It is compact and stores away well in my travel RV as well. It’s great to have when I’m on the road, and want the convenience for easy food prep. I got the lime green one! I absolutely love the color and functionality,” adds another. 

With a 4.7 star rating, customers love this lightweight, functional mixer. The only complaints are that the slide speed controls can be difficult to adjust while in use and heavier beaters would be ideal for thicker mixtures. 

“The switch to change speeds is a bit hard to control with one hand. You might go too many up or down. I found I had to use both hands to switch to the correct setting,” warns one review.

“I like this little mixer but I don't like the beaters, they could have been a little heavier,” adds another.

The verdict 

While the beaters and speed controls are sticking points for some, this KitchenAid Ultra Power 5 Speed Hand Mixer is a resounding crowd favourite on Wayfair.
