Mixer Adjustments

There are several adjustments you can make easily at home to get the best mixing performance from your stand mixer.  

Make sure to check each of these periodically.

Beater adjustments


  • Does your mixer not reach all the ingredients in the bottom of the bowl?

Or, do you have the opposite problem?

  • Is your beater is hitting the bottom of the bowl?

  • Is your flat beater chipping on the bottom?
