Tip #17: Stand Mixers
I get asked fairly regularly about which attachment to use in stand mixers. Here are the general rules:
– If the recipe says whip, whisk, or aerate, use the whip.
– If the recipe says beat, mix, combine, or incorporate, use the paddle
– If the recipe says fold, use the dough hook, unless you are folding whipped cream or whipped egg whites (meringue). If you are folding either of these things, it must be done by hand.
