Cuisinart HM-70 Power Advantage Hand Mixer Review

One piece of cookware that has rapidly increased in popularity over the past few years is the hand mixer. While these mixers may look complex and hard to use they can actually be a chefs best friend when used properly.

Hand mixers can be used to mix almost any ingredients for any recipe. It is the perfect tool for chefs that cook foods with lots of batter or when you need to mix something super thick.

We reviewed a great hand mixer, the Cuisinart HM-70, this is an excellent hand mixer that is sure to serve any cook well in the kitchen for years to come. The Cuisinart HM-70 looks like a traditional hand mixer but provides a little extra kick with some powerful new features.

Powered by a 220 watt motor the HM-70 can handle mixing nearly any ingredients you can put together in a bowl weather it is cake mix, cornbread dough or home made icing.

What We Like About The HM-70

The HM-70 is one of our favorite hand blenders because of the powerful 200 watt motor and 7 adjustable speeds so you can get the perfect ‘blend’ for any recipe.

For years the Cuisinart HM-70 has been one of the most popular blenders in every type of kitchen across the planet. It offers cooks exactly what they are looking for, it is made well and it is relatively cheap for the quality of the product.

One of the biggest selling points of this blender is its 220 watt motor and 7 adjustable speed options. The 220 watt motor in side will let you mix up even the thickest dough or batter without a problem and the 7 adjustable speeds give you just the right amount of control for delicate dishes. There are even three so called “low” mixing speeds, for foods like cream and sauces that must be lightly mixed.

Another unique feature of this mixer is the automatic feedback system. When the feedback mechanism begins to feel a slow down of the mixing blades it will automatically increase power, meaning all you have to do it guide the blades around your mixing bowl.

This cool feature means that a cook will not have to worry about keeping a steady flow of power to ensure the consistency of the blend. This mixer is also one of the most technologically advanced blenders on the market today.

The SmoothStart function slowly increases blade speed when you first turn on the mixer. The unique feature lets you mix your ingredients without spraying them all over your kitchen counter and floor. While older models only have clunky manual speed controls the Cuisinart HM-70 has an LED speed display and as well as one touch speed control. These speed setting will help you mix the perfect batter every time for your recipe.

Finally, like all Cuisinart product cleaning this hand mixer is a breeze. The mixing arms can be cleaned in the dishwasher or by hand if you prefer. The mixer itself only needs to be wiped down with a damp cloth to remove any remaining batter or dough then dried with a towel or left out to try for a few minutes.

If you or someone you know loves baking and is in the market for a new hand mixer then be sure to check out the HM-70. It is a great product for cooks of any kind and can fill many unique niches in the kitchen.
