Welcome to High Quality Store Stand Mixers Collection
Having the right utensils saves time and effort and helps us obtain a better result. One of the essential tools for lovers of cooking and baking is the mixer, a small appliance that not only serves to knead the ingredients, but also can beat or assemble them, avoiding us to do it manually. Those who have mounted clear or kneading bread by hand, know that it is a long and tedious process, and with a mixer is much faster and does not cost any work. While our mixer is doing its job, we can advance tasks in the preparation of our recipe or look for ways to make it more original and creative. There is a wide variety of mixers in the market, available at different prices, and most of them bring with them several accessories that will encourage you to explore the different possibilities that the kitchen offers you.
How to choose a mixer?
If you have decided to buy a mixer, there are a number of aspects to consider when choosing one:
• Power: The more power the better. If you are going to use it a lot, to knead large quantities and / or you are going to use it to make bread, it is best to choose one from 1000W. If you're not going to use it a lot and you're going to use it for creams, light sauces or whipping cream, you can buy a 300W one. However, keep in mind that, since you are going to buy one, it is better to choose the one that has a lot of power, because you can use it for everything, while with the 300W you will be limited.
• Speed levels: It is not the same to be able to choose between three speeds, than to do it in ten. In the same way, we will not obtain the same result by quickly kneading it by doing it slowly, so a higher speed range will give us a greater number of creation possibilities and will help us to optimize our recipes.
• Size and bowl: The size of the mixer will depend on the size of the bowl. Again, the bigger the better, since a large bowl will not limit the quantities.
• Accessories: Most dough mixers come with three accessories: rods, kneading hook and mixing paddles. The first ones are used to incorporate air into the dough, being able to mount egg whites and make mayonnaise or soft creams. The kneading hook allows us to knead dense masses such as bread or pizzas, that is, they are usually used when yeast is present. The mixing paddle has a flat shape and serves to give a creamy texture to the mix, although with it we can also mix broken masses or light masses such as biscuits or cookies.
Tricks to clean your kneading mixer
Once you have your mixer, it is very important to keep it in good condition. Sometimes, after cooking we are so tired that we do not feel like cleaning, but it is important that we do not let the dough remain dry that have remained attached to the mixer, because then it will cost us twice as much to clean it. A very useful trick to clean our mixer easily is: fill the bowl of water, add a drop of liquid soap and give the button as if we were to knead something. The centrifugal force will drag the mass of the rods and the bowl, and we will only have to rinse everything later.
