What's the Best Place to Buy a Hand Mixer?

Walmart sells more small appliances than any other store, but more customers prefer to purchase from online retailer Amazon.com, according to a 2014 study from Consumer Reports. Both retailers stock over 100 models of hand mixers, including all of the mixers listed as the best choices in Good Housekeeping's review.

Customers who preferred not to make their purchases online tended to choose local or regional stores, citing such stores' service and knowledgeable sales people; Kmart, Sam's Club, Target and Walmart scored low in those categories. Consumer Reports' study shows the lowest prices were at Costco, but none of the large chain retailers matched Amazon.com for overall small appliance selection.
