KitchenAid KHM512 Hand Mixer Review

KitchenAid KHM512 is electric hand mixer with 60 watt motor and 5 speed settings.


KitchenAid KHM512 feels underpowered for the money. Competing models that retail for similar amount of money are more powerful. One good thing about KitchenAid KHM512 is that low speeds are actually slow whereas on other similarly priced hand mixers lowest speed is still quite fast where splattering is pretty much unavoidable. On the downside fastest speeds feel like they should be a lot faster.

Perhaps being a KitchenAid hand mixer it might last longer than other similarly priced hand mixers however it won’t mix as well (or will take longer to do the job).


KitchenAid KHM512 comes with two dishwasher safe beaters made of stainless steel.


KitchenAid KHM512 has slider with 5 speed options (+ “Off” setting) and eject button.


Ergonomics are decent. KitchenAid KHM512 is pretty lightweight and comfortable to hold.


KitchenAid KHM512 has soft start feature (speeds up gradually which significantly reduces splattering), lockable swivel cord (cord can be locked from either side), soft grip handle and heel rest.


KitchenAid KHM512 is available in 10 different colors:


KitchenAid KHM512 feels underpowered for the money. It might do for lighter duty jobs but for mixing tougher/thicker doughs you will want to have a stand mixer. Despite that most of consumers seem to be satisfied with their KitchenAid KHM512 hand mixer even though many have complained about lack of power.
