Food mixers can reduce the time and effort it takes to prepare recipes. Rather than wearing out your arm with a bowl and wooden spoon, a food mixer will give you superior results in a fraction of the time.
Hand mixers are small and portable, making them easy to store, and giving you greater control over your cooking. Fully automatic stand mixers such as those from KitchenAid provide stability and ensure that your preparations create less mess. With a greater capacity than most food processors and blenders, some stand mixers can even provide a gentle warmth and heat your ingredients as they mix, ensuring a smoother consistency and accelerating the progress of your cooking.
Selected food mixers come with specialised attachments, such as a dough blade or dough hook (for making bread, pizza dough, scones and more), a beater attachment, or a whisk (for making whipped cream and meringues). Most food mixers use stainless steel bowls that are tough and durable, though some are available with great-looking glass bowls.
Choosing a food mixer with quiet operation will make sure that your home environment is not disrupted by your meal preparation. Multiple speed settings can also provide flexibility when preparing a variety of different meals.
Several food mixers come in very cool retro styles to give your kitchen a different kind of look and feel. They also come in a range of colours, from red to green to pink to purple to yellow to black, so any kitchen’s déÉcor can match.
