Electric Mixers & Mixer Attachments
If you love baking, why do it by hand when an electric mixer can get the job done in no time? Bed Bath & Beyond carries top quality brands in electric mixers, stand mixers, electric whisks, and hand mixer attachments to make baking easier in today’s busy life. These kitchen appliances feature a powerful motor that whisks, beats, mixes & stirs bowls of ingredients for you. Precision controls and settings allow you to ensure you receive the desired results. If you love to make your homemade bread rolls, pizza dough or coffee cakes, why knead with your hand when a mixer with dough hooks can do it for you. Enjoy mashed potatoes, cakes, frosting and cookies with the flat beater. The wire whip on an electric whisk is mainly for incorporating air into eggs, egg whites for meringues, whipping cream, mayonnaise and for light airy angel food cake. Stand mixers can be used on any flat surface for hands-free operation while hand blenders offer more control using only one-handed use. Some hand mixers are electric, and some are cordless.
Most mixers come with a wire whip, dough hook and flat beater. Stand mixers can be more powerful than a hand mixer and will mix faster and more thoroughly. Another advantage is that because it is stationary you don’t need to stay by it-- you can start the mixing process and then leave to do something else. The advantage of a hand mixer is that you can use any of your own vessels for mixing. With electric hand mixers, all you have to do is hold the mixer in place while the movement happens automatically. For creaming butter and sugar for cakes, the cake mixer should generally use a medium setting. An electric whisk is different than a baking mixer. An electric whisk is great for beating eggs, mixing pancakes and more simple recipes. Cake mixers and baking mixers combine ingredients and can aerate them, too. Did you know that you can bake your cake in microwave ovens? Even if you don’t have a convection microwave, the normal heating mode is sufficient for baking a cake as long as you only use microwave safe cookware. Check out our toasters & ovens because you can bake cookies, brownies, and cakes in a toaster oven as long as you use a metal pan. As baking requires more precision, you may have to adjust the temperature accordingly and turn the cake once because the front temperature may not be as hot as at the back of the toaster oven.
Versatile Mixers To Simplify and Make Cooking Fun
As with any appliance, because there is a range in features and price in electric mixers, we recommend you consider your cooking needs and how frequently you will use the appliance. For example, if you like to make gifts of bread for friends and family or like to make large batches of cookies for occasions, you should consider a high-capacity dough mixer. Stand mixers have a lot more use than desserts and pastries. With a stand mixer you can add attachments to make pasta, tamales, meatballs, and so many other recipes that may have previously seemed excessively complex. You need to check if your stand mixer will be compatible with all the attachments that you’re interested in adding later on. For example, some mixers have an attachment for juicing. Or you may want to consider a separate juice extractors. Different types of foods require different mixing speeds. If you are making meringues, you need a setting that is fast so you can whip the egg whites to lofty heights. Most models of both hand and stand mixers offer several speeds ranging from 3 to 12. Three speed options are usually enough for most bakers, but if you are looking for absolute precision in your recipes, you may want a baking mixer that has more speed settings.
