Which Kitchenaid Mixer

Which Kitchenaid Mixerwhich kitchenaid mixer

There are some basic questions about Which Kitchenaid Mixer and which attachments to use depending on what you are making. How do you know if you should be using the wire whip or the flat edge attachment? If you’re baking muffins where the dough will end up thicker when all of the ingredients are in, will the wire whip be OK, or will it get bent out of shape?

Which Kitchenaid Mixer is best?

The Classic series Kitchenaid mixer really is a safe choice no matter what. If you want a little bit more advanced then you could upgrade to the Artisan Series 5 especially if you bake a lot. If you have small cafe or restaurant, then Which Kitchenaid Mixer is easier as you should be confident in choosing the Pro series.

 
The Pro500 Kitchenaid mixer is also an excellent choice if you want to spend the extra money.

Which Kitchenaid attachment for cake?

The asnwer to Which Kitchenaid Mixer attachment for cake is not a simple one or another, but a combination. If you have a somewhat standard cake batter then you can use either the flat blade or the wire whip. Keep an eye on the wire whip, as heavy dough and batter can bend the wire pieces out of shape. If you try to use the wire whip attachment for a heavy dough, you may even rip one of the wire pieces right out of the socket. Once that happens it never will be the same again. You can slide it back in place, but the bend and angles will forever be different. The good news is that they are not terribly expensive, so replacing them is not a big deal.

Which Kitchenaid attachment for frosting?

The Which Kitchenaid Mixer attachment question for frosting is that the wire whip will generally give you the best consistency and  most even mixture. Most of the other blades or attachments will work (other than the dough hook) but will need to be mixed longer than if you use the recommended wire whip.

Which Kitchenaid Mixer is right for me?

Similar to the above question ‘which kitchenaid mixer is best’ this question though makes it a little more personal and obviously has to fit you needs. What are your needs? How will you use the kitchenaid mixer? Are you a casual baker or home chef who cooks most meals? Are you a serious cook who uses a stand mixer all day long?
