Frequently Asked Questions
How to use the Stand Mixer attachments
Most stand mixers come with 3 standard attachments as shown in the image below, the dough hook, balloon whisk, and flat beater/mixer blade.
Each attachment has its own function.
Flat Beater is the most commonly used attachment. This is used to beat and mix all kinds of mixtures, buttons, and sugar that result in fluffy baked dishes that we all enjoy.
Dough hook is suitable for kneading all kinds of dough and heavy pastries. The higher the wattage in the stand mixer, the heavier the dough it can knead without breaking a sweat.
Balloon whisk is best for whisking, whipping & creaming mixtures for cakes and batters. It’s similar to a flat beater but the whisk adds more air into the mix that results in a fluffy / whipped texture.
Balloon whisk should be used on lighter batters to avoid damaging the whisk. If in doubt, use a flat beater first to soften and smoothen the batter, then use the whisk for air fluffy texture.
What is the best wattage?
The higher the wattage, the more powerful the mixer will be. For heavy dough mixing and large quantities of batter mixing, it is recommended to go with a higher wattage of 700 and above.
The low wattage of 250 and above is standard for home use with smaller, lighter volumes.
How many KG can I put in the Mixing Bowl?
This is a very vague question. The bowl is measured by liter capacity and not by KG since the item since varies.
You can pour in up to 3 to 5kg of flour inside a 10L bowl, but is flour the only thing you are going to mix?
How about water, butter, and other ingredients?
To get a better understanding of which capacity bowl you need to mix your ingredients, get a 1L water bottle and fill it with a sample measurement of your ingredients.
Find out how many KG of your ingredient mix you were able to put inside the 1L bottle and a simple math calculation can help you narrow down the Litre capacity of the bowl you require to get the job done.
