The mixer's planetary action gives it a much faster mixing and kneading action than by hand or with mixers made by other manufacturers. Because of this, the kneading time can be significantly reduced in most bread recipes.
KitchenAid® recommends adapting your favorite recipes to the speeds and times recommended in the Owner's Manual for best results.
- Kneading with a KitchenAid
®mixer for 2 minutes is equivalent to kneading 10 - 12 minutes by hand.
- KitchenAid® does not recommend kneading bread dough for more than 2 minutes at Speed 2, and that the total mixing and kneading time does not exceed 4 - 6 minutes.
