FAQ’s on Stand Mixers

How to use the attachments

Most stand mixers come with 3 common attachments as shown in the image below, the dough hook, balloon whisk and the flat beater / mixer blade.

Each attachment has it’s own function.

Flat Beater is the most commonly used attachment. This is used to beat and mix all kinds of mixtures, button, 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 mixture that results in 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?

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.

Low wattage of 250 and above is standard for home use with smaller, lighter volume.
