Cuisinart HM-70 Hand Mixer Review


Cuisinart HM-70 is a hand mixer with 220 watt motor and 7 speed settings. Cuisinart is known for making good kitchen appliances but is this true for HM-70 too?


Mixing

Cuisinart HM-70 hand mixer has 7 speeds – more than what you usually get with other hand mixers. This means you have more options to find the perfect amount power where mixer is not struggling due to lack of power and isn’t splattering due to too much power.

If we are talking about splattering then there’s another cool feature worth mentioning – SmoothStart. When you start mixing the speed increases gradually which reduces splattering.

What about power? Does Cuisinart HM-70 has enough? For most things yes but it can struggle a bit with thicker doughs. A little bit more power would be welcome at this price.


Accessories

Cuisinart HM-70 hand mixer comes with comes with beaters (dish-washer safe), spatula and chef’s whisk.


Quality

Cuisinart HM-70 is made of plastic so it doesn’t feel very sturdy but then again neither does other similarly priced hand mixers. There are some issues though that long-term users have reported.

Many consumers reported this model stopping working after about a year of use. This means long term reliability might be a weak spot of this hand mixer.

Another issue that was reported somewhat frequently was plastic clips that hold attachments wear out overtime and break. This causes attachments to fall out.


Features

Cuisinart HM-70 has Heel rest so it can stand upright on flat surface. It also has swivel cord so it will be comfortable to use whether you are right or left handed.


Conclusions

Considering some of the common complaints from consumers as well that you would expect slightly more power at this price perhaps opting out for a different model might be a better choice. If you manage to avoid some of the reported issues then it’s not that bad of a hand mixer overall.
