Sticks to tilt-head stand mixers - types of food mixers explained

You can find 3 main types of food mixers and the best one for you will depend on your cooking needs and personal preference.

You can find tilt-head stand mixers that have a switch to lift the head and add ingredients or bowl-lift stand mixers with a stationary head and a lever to move the bowl up and down.

  • Hand mixer - A hand mixer is a handheld device with two electric beaters that can be used to whip and mix batters. They may come with different attachments and are small for easy storage.
