How to Use

This product is for household use only.

  1. After unpacking, before first use, remove all stickers, packing material, and literature. Wash all parts as instructed in the Care and Cleaning section.
  2. Make sure speed switch is in the off (0) position and unplugged before inserting or removing attachments.
  • To insert wire beaters: Match beater with the collar near its stem end to the illustration located near the opening. The beater with the black plastic tip goes on the left side. Push in beater, rotating slightly if necessary, until it locks into place. Insert other beater into the second hole, also rotating it if necessary, until it locks into place.
  • To insert dough hook: Match dough hook with the collar near its stem end to the illustration located near the opening. Gently push in each dough hook, rotating it slightly if necessary, until it locks into place.
  1. Place ingredients to be mixed in a bowl.
  2. Plug cord into an outlet.
  3. If mixing on the stand, raise the arm by pressing the arm release button. Place the mixer on the stand and click into place. Place bowl in bowl rest beneath mixer. Lower the arm by pressing the release button.
  4. If mixing by handheld method, remove mixer from stand by pressing the release button conveniently located on the stand. Insert beaters or dough hooks into center of food in bowl, holding the mixer by the handle.
  5. Use the mixing guide below to select the correct speed for the food you are mixing. Generally, it is best to start on the lowest speed (1), then increase speed with beaters or dough hooks immersed in the food.

Note: The bowl only rotates with the wire beaters; it does not rotate with the dough hooks.

  1. Guide beaters or dough hooks continuously through the mixture for uniform mixing. We recommend using a spatula to scrape away buildup from sides or bottom of the bowl and blend ingredients back into beaters. Be sure to turn speed switch off (0). Place mixer on stand so that batter will drip back into bowl. Hold mixer by handle with beaters or dough hooks facing forward.
  2. To remove beaters, push eject button.

Be careful when ejecting the beaters or dough hooks since they come out of the mixer quickly. You may want to eject them into bowl or into a sink.

Mixing Guide

Use the following guide for speed selections. Note: Start mixing at the lowest speed and gradually increase as needed. For best results, use wire beaters to whip light, fluffy mixtures, heavy cream, or eggs, at speed #5.

1 (Low) Blend To blend flour/dry ingredients, and liquids for batters and cookie doughs.
To blend nuts, chips, raisins into cookie doughs.
2 (Low/Med) Stir To prepare sauces, puddings, muffins, and quick breads. To stir thin batters.
3 (Medium) Mix To prepare batters and cake mixes.
To cream butter and sugar or mix eggs into batters.
4 (Med/High) Beat To beat whole eggs, frozen desserts, frostings.
To mix light batters like popovers.
5 (High) Whip To whip fluffy mixtures, whipped cream, egg whites, and mashed potatoes.

Mixing Tips

For best results when whipping cream, chill the cream, beaters, and bowl. Start with the lowest setting and gradually increase to whip (#5) as the cream begins to thicken.

Note: For best volume when whipping cream, do not use a spatula.

We recommend using the mixer for 3 minutes of continuous use for 1 off for all functions or speeds.
