    ...for the occasional meringue, whipped cream and for creaming butter, once a week.

    Have you considered a small Immersion blender with attachment?

    Never used an immersion blender and so I don't know what to think.  More comments appreciated.  Whatever I get, it won't be used for mixing doughs.

    Well, it turns out a family who has a crystal ball is giving me a hand me down KA handheld and I'll let, as Paula Deen says, Y'ALL know how it works out.

    I had a KA hand held before getting the stand mixer. I don't think you'll be disappointed.

    Correction:  Rather, it's a Hamilton Beach mixer.  Sorry.
