How long should I mix my ingredients?
This KitchenAid® Hand Mixer will beat faster and more thoroughly than most other electric hand mixers. Therefore, the beating time in most recipes must be adjusted to avoid overbeating.
Beating time is faster due to larger beater sizes. To help determine the ideal beating time, observe the batter or dough and beat only until it has the desired appearance described in your recipe, such as "smooth and creamy." To select the best beating speeds, use the "Speed control guide" section of your Owner's Manual.
