Cake Mixers – Choosing the Right One for your Mixing Needs!

Are you shopping for the Best Cake Mixers?

Then, you’ve come to the right place. In this page you will find a brief (and hopefully, helpful!) write-up on the different types of Cake Mixers that are in the market these days.

There are 3 types of Mixers:

  • Stand Mixers.
  • Hand Mixers.
  • Wand Mixers.

Stand Mixers

Stand Mixers are the most expensive in the category. The high-end ones are used in professional kitchens and look really good!

The two popular ones are products by KitchenAid and Cuisinart.

If your specific requirement is basic mixing, then you can opt for the standard mixers which include the flat beater, wire whisk and dough hook.

Even the most basic and standard of Stand Mixers can accomplish tasks like mixing pancake batter, whisking eggs a lot faster than if done manually.

If you require one for more labour-intensive tasks like kneading dough for bread,for example, you will get more mileage if you get a more powerful (and expensive!) stand mixer.

It will also make your work that much faster as it’ll take literally minutes and you won’t break a sweat!
Power is important when choosing a stand mixer. For standard models, the range typically available in the market is between 250 and 450 watts of power. More powerful and high-end stand mixers can have up to 1,000 watts of power.
Most Mixers have varying speeds which range from 0 to up to 12 speed settings.

Stand Mixers are also more expensive and if you do not bake every day, it’s best to choose between the other 2 categories. But hey, that’s merely a suggestion…so if you really must have that funky, sleek and shiny KitChenAid, go ahead and indulge..

Hand Mixers

These are the common type of Cake Mixers used in household kitchens. They are easy-to-assemble and clean, functional and most importantly, you don’t need to break the bank to purchase one!Hand Mixers come in limited speeds. Most households have both a Stand Mixer and Hand Mixers; the former for major jobs like mixing cookie dough while the latter for less tedious jobs like mixing batter.

Wand Mixers

These are the most basic of mixers. It’s easy to store and takes up little storage space. I use my Wand Mixer for blending soups and smoothie. The brand I use is Braun.

For purposes of making a smooth, creamy soup, use a Wand Mixer as there is no need to transfer the soup from the pot to a blender. Merely, use the wand mixer and blend away directly in the pot or bowl you’ve placed your ingredients. Really easy!

If the pot is on the fire, please switch off the stove and let the pot cool for ten minutes before using the Wand Mixer.
