Types of Stand Mixers

Whether you’re a beginning baker or a seasoned pro, a stand mixer is a must-have for every kitchen. With so many colors and styles to choose from, you’re sure to find the perfect mixer to complement your décor and personality. Consider these other factors when investing in a stand mixer:

  • Speed: Stand mixers may feature up to twelve speeds to accommodate a variety of mixtures. You may find that you only use or need a few speeds, a slow speed is best to minimize splatter, but the more the merrier! A good kitchen mixer will indicate which speed is desirable for a particular task.
  • Size: A heavy, sturdy stand mixer is always a good bet. Consider a larger, more built-to-last mixer that you intend to be a fixture on your countertop. If you'll be storing your mixer frequently, a lightweight, more portable design might be ideal.
  • Capacity: A minimum of 4.5 quarts is ideal for mixing cookie dough or cake batter. A 5- or 6-quart stand mixer will easily accommodate bread and pizza dough; however, if you’ll be preparing lots of double-batch recipes or homemade breads, consider 6 quarts or more.
  • Attachments: A stand mixer that is set up to receive a variety of attachments is every home chef’s dream. While usually sold separately, handy mixer attachments like juicers, sausage stuffers, pasta rollers and more will turn your stand mixer into a one-stop shop.
