What do you use your mixer for?

I have a mixer that has been in the box for over a year. I never had a mixer before, don't really know how to use it or what to use it for.

What do you use your mixer for?

  • A hand mixer or stand mixer? My hand mixer is rarely used, but it comes out if I'm making brownies. My stand mixer is used for bread dough, pizza, dough, cookies, etc. It's a lot easier to just turn it on than stand there trying not to splatter :)

  • We use our to make everything Ginger mentioned! For desserts it comes in handy when I have to make large quantitites--like bake sales--otherwise I use my hand mixer.

  • Cookies, frosting, whipping cream...that's all I can think of at the moment, I probably only use it every other month or so....

  • I use my stand mixer for lots of things: cakes, cheesecakes, cookies, frosting, fondant, mashed potatoes, ice cream (an attachment).

  • Everything mentioned above....bread dough, pizza dough, frosting, cake & brownie batters, cookie doughs, mashed potatoes, big batches of pancake or waffle batters, muffin batters, homemade whipped cream, etc....It's especially nice for mixing up large batches of things and kneading doughs.

  • I bake my own bread, so I use the mixer for that. I also use it for cookies, cakes, and my MIL uses it for cinnamon rolls when she's visiting.
