Imagine my excitement when I was invited to become one of Hamilton Beach's Brand Ambassadors. I have other Hamilton Beach small kitchen appliances in my home and know that the company produces quality products. Fortunately, I was given the opportunity to work with one of the company's newest handheld mixers, the SoftScrape Hand Mixer.
As you can see, the mixer is accompanied by five attachments: the SoftScrape beaters in red, traditional metal beaters, and a metal whisk. The SoftScrape beaters are designed to scrape the bowl to ensure thorough mixing. I like to think of them as a combination of beaters and rubber spatula.
This was one of the coolest features of the mixer - the case. I have one of Hamilton Beach's older mixer models that came with a case. That case wasn't very user friendly, more like a bulky brief case. I never used it. But, I love this one! The mixer just sits on top of the case which holds all of your beaters. There is even a groove on the side of the case to accommodate the power cord. No more looking for your beaters - they're all here.
One of the reasons that I was so attracted to the rubber beaters was the fact that I have a vintage Pyrex bowl that I like to use to make cake batter. I found that traditional metal beaters really scraped up the surface of my bowl and I felt that I could no longer use the bowl with a mixer. These SoftScrape beaters worked perfectly and smoothly. I can now safely continue using my favorite bowl
While I usually use my favorite bowl for cake batter, I decided to test this mixer with an unusual project. I needed to make one hundred deviled eggs for a relative's 50th wedding anniversary celebration. Normally, I whip up my deviled egg filling by hand, but this seemed like a monumental task - perfect for testing the SoftScrape Hand Mixer.
After breaking up the eggs with a fork, I added the mayonnaise and other ingredients and started mixing. This is one powerful hand mixer! I kept it on the lowest speed the whole time and it quickly whipped up a large bowl of smooth, lump-free deviled egg filling. This mixer is more than capable enough of taking on much thicker mixtures such as pound cakes and mashed potatoes. Plus, my bowl did not suffer any new scratches. I was so pleased with the results.
This powerful mixer made quick work of my egg filling and I was able to take one hundred delicious deviled eggs to the party. I feel confident that this hand mixer can take on any task that you have in your kitchen. Would you like to find out for yourself how wonderful this new mixer is? In addition to sending me a mixer to test, Hamilton Beach has generously offered to give one to one of my readers. Enter the giveaway in the widget below.
