Hand mixer is fine, the final texture of the soup will not be as smooth. Might even be a little lumpy. Won't affect the taste though and some people like their soup a little lumpy. If I make potato soup for company I have to leave it lumpy for one of my friends.

If I was going to use a hand mixer, I would do things a little differently however.

1) Let the pumpkin shimmer a little longer.
2) Use a ricer (device to make mash potatoes) or a masher to break up the pumpkin first.
3) Once it is all broken down, let it shimmer a little again (maybe 5 minutes) before mixing.
4) Take it off the heat and make sure the sides of the pot is high enough so that you don't get bits of soup everywhere.
The answer is chocolate, it does not matter what the question is.
