KitchenAid Classic Stand Mixer: The Cook’s Nuts and Bolts of Mixing
When it comes to the mechanics of mixing KitchenAid brings the technology to the counter top. As the beaters turn clockwise the shaft turns counter-clockwise creating a beating motion that is thorough and deep. It mixes the ingredients in the bottom of the bowl just as completely as the ingredients in the top and middle. With a few quick swipes from the cook using a spatula, the sides are pulled into the batter or dough. Let’s discuss those ten speeds. What a treat! With ten speeds you’ll always have just the right speed you need. The first two speeds 1-2 are only the beginning. This is the speed to start slowly stirring before building up to the others. Hike up the speed to 3-4 and mix heavier batters and doughs like cookies. At 5-6 you’re starting to move mixing into a new realm of thinner batters like cake. By the time you hit 7-8 it’s beating time. You’re no longer just mixing or stirring. You’re whipping and beating heavy cream into whipped cream and eggs into a froth of gold. At 9-10 you’re running wide open now and no one can stop you. Whip small amounts of cream and/ or eggs, at this daring speed, for cooking delights.
