Now that you’ve binged through all of your favorite shows on Netflix and still have free time to spare, one way to get creative with your free time is to get a kitchen stand mixer. A stand mixer is a combination of sturdy build quality materials and a robust motor that make it an indispensable tool in the kitchen. You probably don’t know this yet because you don’t have one! Whether you’re a baker or a cooker, there are several ways a kitchen stand mixer can help you in the kitchen. Quite simply, a kitchen stand mixer is an extra pair of two sturdy arms in your kitchen. You can use them as helpers to perform a mixing task while you indulge yourself in collecting the ingredients for a recipe. The best part is, not only does it give you the ability to multi-task, but a kitchen stand mixer also does a better job of mixing stuff than you’ll ever do.
A kitchen stand mixer is going to come with three standard blade attachments: a whisk, a dough hook, and a beater. How you want to use a specific attachment depends on your particular use case scenario. The flat beater can be used for most tasks around the kitchen. You can use it to mix cookie batter, cake batter, and frostings; you can use it to shred chicken, pulled pork; you can use it to mix meatballs, meatloaves, and both savory and sweet ingredients. For instance, if you’re trying to incorporate butter into a warm curd of citrus or if you’re trying to mix mashed potatoes with butter or milk, a kitchen stand mixer will get the job done easily!
In the same way, you can use the whisk to beat eggs, and add cream to your desserts. However, if you want to take it to the next level, you can also use the whisk to create marshmallow fluff and homemade butter without considerable effort! Since these recipes require a lot of aggressive mixing, a kitchen stand mixer will get the job done on its own without you having to lift a finger. On the other hand, you can use the dough hook to knead any and all kinds of dough you can imagine. Whether it’s whole grain dough, stiff baguette dough or pizza dough, the kneader will do the less fun part for you so your hands don’t hurt later on!
