Review

We also tested the Sunbeam JM7000 hand-mixer, which has a HeatSoft function. Its beaters warm up to gently soften cold butter to room temperature, so you don’t have to wait for fridge-hard butter to soften or risk melting it in the microwave. When we tried this function, it worked well, but we needed to cut the butter into 2.5cm cubes before we could get started.

We also put this mixer through our regular tests. It did an excellent job beating egg whites and was very good mixing cake batter. It’s not the best hand-mixer we’ve tested but if you use the HeatSoft function, it’s worth considering.

Notes
Technically similar to the JM7050. The JM7050 only comes with beaters.
