What Are The Types of Kitchen Mixers

There are three types to choose from when you're cooking or baking. Many kitchen mixers are affordable and can be used to make any dish. You will most commonly use a stand mixer to make pizza dough. The hand mixer is used to make sauces, creams, and soups. A hand/stand mixer is the third type of mix, which is a combination mixer that can do both.

Three Different Types Of Kitchen Mixers

  1. Stand mixers: This type of kitchen mixer is the most common. A majority of stand mixers come with a book that contains simple recipes to help you use the mixer. Hand mixers can be distinguished from stand mixers by the fact that they have fitted bowls and come with different heads. They are also more expensive. Because stand mixers are larger than hand mixers, they have a reputation for being more reliable. This is because they can fit a larger, more reliable motor. They are considered "upper-end" kitchen appliances and are used by many enthusiastic cooks and home bakers.
  2. Hand Mixers are also very popular. They are easy to use, cheap, and can mix, and blend just about any ingredient, except raw vegetables. Mixing soups and cake batters with a hand mixer is a common task. Hand mixers are better suited for heavy-duty tasks like making pizza dough or blending vegetables.
  3. Stand-Hand mixers: This type is used by someone who needs to make the dough and also be able to mix soups. These stand-hand mixers are simple in that they can be moved around and multitask.

Choose The Right Kitchen Mixer To Suit Your Recipe

  • Use Stand Mixers For: Blending solids, making doughs, preparing creams or sauces that need to be delicately folded.
  • Use Hand Mixers For: Blending in the pot, making soups, and sauces, and slicing up cooking vegetables quickly.
  • Use Stand-Hand Mixers For: When you need to mix solids and liquids together and need the flexibility of blending ingredients in multiple pots or bowls.

A Quick Buyer's Guide to What to Look for in a Kitchen Mixer When Buying

  • Multiple settings are a sign of a motor that is working well.
  • It is most likely that your motor has high RPM or wattage.


  • A product warranty policy that is strong and enforceable is a sign of a brand's confidence in it.
