The OXO On Illuminating Digital Hand Mixer is a thing of beauty. I’ve been excited about OXO’s new line of small appliances, so when they asked if I’d like to test out the Hand Mixer, I couldn’t say ‘yes’ fast enough. Included in the box is a set of balloon-shaped beaters, a set of dough hooks for extra-thick batter and a stopper where the beaters store conveniently on the Mixer body. The cord even wraps around the base and is clicked into place for compact, upright storage!
I think the best part of the entire Mixer is the Soft Glow LED Headlight. It illuminates the bowl as you mix, allowing you to monitor batter consistency, and remains softly lit for safety as long as the Mixer is on. Beaters are ejected with a simple push for easy cleaning and get this… the cord swivels and snaps into either side of the Mixer to stay safely out of your way whether you’re a lefty or a righty. Ingenious!
This Cinnamon Pecan Pound Cake is to die for and it was a breeze whipping up the batter with the set of balloon-shaped beaters. The soft-touch, LED-indicated controls allowed me to smoothly adjust the mixing speed so that I didn’t end up with a flour bomb when I added the dry ingredients to the mix. The pecans are nutty and crunchy and there’s just enough cinnamon inside to warm you up. Perfect for your next Christmas party or work pot-luck!
