A hand mixer is the more modern version of an eggbeater mixer, but with a motor. A motor is encased in a top section, which has a handle . It’s the motor that moves the beaters, rather than cranking a handle.
Stand mixers have a frame that acts as the housing for a heavier-duty motor than a hand mixer, as well as the mounting base for a bowl, which is designed to fit the mixer and lock in place during mixing. They have various mixing attachments, which makes whipping, creaming, kneading, etc. an effortless task.
Made with creators in mind, a stand mixer can be so much more than a baking appliance. KitchenAid® offers a line of products that transform the KitchenAid® Stand Mixer into the Culinary Center of any kitchen, backed by quality that will keep the creativity flowing for years and years to come.
