One of the biggest purchase I did was my mixer but I don't regret it. Before I was mixing my cake butters just with a hand mixer and could not do anything fast because I have to stay there holding the mixer :(
This is why I'm sharing a little bit about mixers with you and I hope this help you decide on which is right for you.:)
Feel free to share it with your fiends: :)
A stand mixer can easily be one of the most exciting purchases you ever make for your kitchen, especially if you bake a lot. Since this is such an investment piece, most people really want to make sure they have the space, money, and need for such a machine before taking the plunge. Although finally deciding to make the purchase can feel like a big decision in and of itself, the real decision comes when picking the one that will be right for your home, home business and cooking needs.
A stand mixer is a great way to take your baking game to the next level, and I believe that the KitchenAid Artisan ($280) is the best mixer for the home baker looking for an equipment upgrade. Not only did it expertly cream butter and sugar for cookies and whip up a genoise cake batter to perfection, it also effortlessly kneaded whole wheat bread dough without straining or walking around on the countertop. For the money, the KitchenAid Artisan can’t be beat in performance and versatility.
Commercial mixers are some of the most useful and versatile pieces of equipment you can invest in! With numerous innovative features and attachments from belt drive systems to bowl guards, a mixer is a vital asset for any commercial kitchen. To aid in selecting the perfect mixer, take a look at the mixer types to break down the mixer size needed for various types of mixing jobs. Whether you're a pizza shop that mixes hundreds of pounds of dough a day, or you're a restaurant that only needs to make mashed potatoes once a week for a dinner special, choose the right commercial mixer for you.
-Planetary mixers (also called a vertical mixer) are so named because they feature an agitator that turns on an offset shaft, while the mixing bowl remains stationary. This motion is similar to the way the planets move around the sun, hence the name.
A variety of interchangeable agitator attachments let you mix anything from dough to icing to meringues and puddings.
Many feature a Power Takeoff (PTO) hub, which lets you add slicing, grating, chopping, and other attachments.
You can usually mix smaller batches by using a smaller mixing bowl.
-Spiral mixers consist of a spiral-shaped agitator that remains stationary, while the bowl revolves around it. This specialized design makes them great for mixing large quantities of dough at a time.
They don't have a variety of agitator attachments like a planetary mixer, but mix high volumes of dough much quicker.
Unlike a planetary mixer, you do not need to change the bowl or agitator when mixing smaller batches.
-Vertical cutter mixers feature a large covered mixing bowl, a high horsepower motor, and an interior agitator that lets them perform a variety of functions, though when it comes to things like dough and batters, they generally can't achieve the same level of precision a planetary or spiral model can.
Mainly for fast, bulk production.
A variety of functions: mix batters or sauce, chop nuts, salad material and bread, chop cooked meat, and knead dough depending on the attachment configuration.
