Types of Food Mixers & Processors


Food Mixers

Food mixers are typically used for baking. Thus it is used for tasks like kneading dough and whisking eggs. The 2 types of mixers are hand mixers and stand mixers.


Hand Mixers

Hand mixers are meant for less-demanding baking task. It is a handheld device equipped with metal beaters. The beaters are what you use for whipping and whisking. They are more portable than stand mixers. Some models have interchangeable attachments where you can swap the beater for a dough hook or a wire whisk.


Stand Mixers

Stand mixers can sustain intensive baking tasks better than hand mixers. A standard stand mixer will have a stand, a mixing bowl and an arm. The arm typically can fit different attachments like a whisk, a beater or a dough hook. Other models too can fit additional accessories for blending and mincing.


Food Processors

A food processor is typically used for mixing and chopping solid and near-solid foods. The 2 types of processors are mini choppers and food processors.
