Hand Mixer Teardown

Torn-down mixer

The Hand Mixer is relatively commonplace; easy to overlook as a standard part of most kitchens. A good one can last for years, and we’ve come to rely on them to do all of our egg whipping, dough kneading, and batter mixing.

So, pondering what interesting lessons the design might hold, the M3 team commenced in tearing it apart. How does the design balance power and weight? How does the speed switch also function as the beater ejection system? What things were done to keep the price down and create an efficient design?
