A mixer is a kitchen appliance intended for mixing, folding, beating and whipping food ingredients. Mixers come in two major variations, hand mixers and stand mixers. A hand mixer, as the name implies, is a hand-held mixing device, usually with dual beaters and adjustable speeds. A hand mixer is ideal for smaller baking projects and has the advantage of portability. A stand mixer, on the other hand, is a heavy duty kitchen tool that has more mixing power and can handle larger amounts. This mixer type can be rather hefty, and is not a very portable option. Typically a stand mixer will also have optional attachments that can help with other kitchen tasks – the KitchenAid stand mixer, for example has available attachments that can do everything from shred cheese to roll out pasta dough.
