Cheap hand mixers usually don’t have this feature and usually are either underpowered on all speeds or overpowered on slow speeds so this is certainly a very welcome feature.
The power is decent. This is not a hand mixer you would want to mix huge batches of hard dough but then again you should use a stand mixer for that kind of a job anyway. Most of the stuff Elechomes HM11132 mixes and whips just fine.

#4 BLACK+DECKER MX600 Inexpensive Hand Mixer
BLACK+DECKER MX600 has 250 watt motor and 5 speed settings with “Turbo” button which gives you maximum power when pressed.
The power is decent but once again, this hand mixer is not really for heavy duty jobs. Design of beaters isn’t great too as they tend to make dough climb up which you then have to remove by hand.
Another slight disadvantage it possesses is that its a bit loud as well.
BLACK+DECKER MX600 hand mixes comes with 2 helix beaters, 2 dough hooks and a wire whisk. It also comes with snap-on storage case where you can neatly store the hand mixer and all accessories.

BLACK+DECKER MX3200B is another affordable hand mixer that’s one of the cheapest in this list. It has 250 watt motor and 6 speed settings + “Turbo” button.
The power is quite similar to most other hand mixers in this list. Enough for low-to-medium duty jobs, might not be sufficient for more serious ones. It mixes and whips reasonably well considering it’s very inexpensive.
You could complain about 2 things though. The first on is that slowest speed could be slower to prevent splattering. The other one is that there’s no eject buttons so you have to detach accessories manually by hand.
