Before inserting or removing attachments, always make sure stand mixer is unplugged and setting control is set to OFF .

Flat Beater

  • Use the flat beater for most of your mixing needs, from normal to heavy consistency.
  • The flat beater should be used with items such as cake batters, biscuits, pastries, icing, fudge, cookie dough, and potatoes.

Dough Hook

The dough hook should be used for heavy pastries and a heavier dough that requires kneading.


  • The whisk is designed to whip liquids, such as egg whites, cream, and light cake batters.
  • Use the whisk to incorporate air for whipped cream and meringue.
  • Do not use the whisk for mixing thick mixtures, such as dough, fudge, or mashed potatoes, as they could damage the whisk.
  • Your stand mixer is designed to whisk a minimum of 2 large egg whites or 1/2 cup (120 ml) of cream. Mixing performance is enhanced as the tip of the whisk is immersed into the liquid.
