Hand Mixer

Does anyone use a hand mixer?  My Bodum hand mixer has just died, and even if I could get inside it, spares are not available.  So - I need a new one.  I'm just making 1 x 900g/2lb loaf at a time, so not huge volumes; I don't really have the space for a stand mixer.  Does anyone have any experience of hand mixers and bread dough?  Your thoughts are appreciated!

There's really no reason at all to use a mixer for a 900g loaf.
