Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Affordable without compromising on quality
This mixer comes at a good price and is as powerful as some of the KitchenAid stand mixers. The quality of the build -stainless steel details, 12 speeds, and 3 attachments are as good as those of upmarket mixers.
Pro Covers the whole bowl's radius when mixing
The mixing head orbits and the beaters rotate for even coverage from side to side - all the ingredients are wiped off the sides and mixed into an even, lump-free mixture.
Pro A variety of speed settings with a speed sensor for everyday mixing
The mixer has an electronic speed sensor which is designed to maintain the same speed under different load conditions, for example - when mixing thick dough, the mixer automatically adjusts speed to suit the consistency and to not slow down under the load. Hamilton mixer comes with 12 speed settings, however, on the mixer the settings are listed as 2-4-6-8-10-12 which might confuse some of the users of thinking there are only 6 speed settings.
Pro Suitable for most mixing needs
The 63227 mixer comes with three attachments - dough hook, whisk, and flat beater - which make most of the mixing easy. They are suitable for cookie or bread dough, egg, and other mixing and blending needs.
Pro Clean, hassle free mixing with no mess
The pouring/splatter shield which comes with the mixer, allows to add ingredients without a mess. The shield prevents splashing, when creating thin or liquid mixtures.
Pro High quality materials
The mixing bowl is made of stainless steel for added longevity of the product and quality of ingredient prepping. It is dishwasher safe and will last for a long time.
Pro Sturdy and stable
The mixer has non-slip feet for added sturdiness and the bowl locks into a base for stable and hassle free mixing.
Con It is heavy
The mixer is best to be left and operated on a counter in a set area, rather than transporting it from room to room - it weighs 21 pounds.
Con The height of the mixer is not adjustable
The attachments cannot reach the remaining ingredients at the bottom of the bowl. The height is not adjustable, therefore some manual scraping might have to be done in order to have well mixed ingredients.
Con It does not have dual voltage
The mixer by default comes with USA voltage (110 V), therefore cannot be used abroad without an adapter.
