Speed Control Guide
All speeds have the Soft Start® feature which automatically starts the Stand Mixer at a lower speed to help avoid ingredient splash-out and “flour puff” at start-up, then quickly increases to the selected speed for optimal performance.
NOTE: The speed control can be set between the speeds listed in the chart to obtain speeds 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9 if a finer adjustment is required. Do not exceed Speed 2 when preparing yeast doughs as this may cause damage to the Stand Mixer.
|Stir||Stir||For starting all mixing procedures, slow stirring, combining, and mashing. Use to add flour and dry ingredients to batter, and to add liquids to dry ingredients. Do not use Speed 1 to mix or knead yeast doughs.|
|Slow Mixing||For slow mixing, mashing, and faster stirring. Use to mix and knead yeast doughs, heavy batters, and candies; start mashing potatoes or other vegetables; cut shortening into flour; mix thin or splashy batters.|
|4||Mixing, Beating||For mixing semi-heavy batters, such as cookies. Use to combine sugar and shortening, and to add sugar to egg whites for meringues. Medium speed for cake mixes.|
|6||Beating, Creaming||For medium-fast beating (creaming), or whipping. Use to finish mixing cake, doughnut, and other batters. High speed for cake mixes.|
|8||Fast Beating, Whipping||For whipping cream, egg whites, and boiled frostings.|
|10||Fast Whipping||For whipping small amounts of cream, or egg whites; for final whipping of mashed potatoes.|
NOTE: To move the speed control lever with ease, lift slightly up as you move it across the settings in either direction.
