Tips for better Whipping Performance - Hand Mixer

Possible Solution

Mashing Potatoes

Hand mixers do not mash potatoes, but instead, whip them.

There are several reasons why mashed potatoes have lumps:

  • Potatoes may not be thoroughly cooked.
  • Potatoes vary significantly, and there can be tough spots in them.
  • Different types of potatoes will yield different results.

Tip: Try cooking the potatoes longer and/or smashing the tough spots with a fork.

Whipping Cream

Put the beaters into the freezer for 10 minutes before whipping. 9 - Speed Hand Mixers have a professional whisk that may help, or you may purchase the whip for any other model.
