Speed Control Guide – 10 Speed Mixers
All speeds have the Soft Start™ feature which automatically starts the Stand
Mixer at a lower speed to help prevent ingredient splash-out and "flour puff" at
startup then quickly increases to the selected speed for optimal performance.

Use Speed 2 to mix or knead yeast doughs. Use of any other speed creates
high potential for unit failure. The PowerKnead™ Spiral Dough Hook efficiently
kneads most yeast dough within 4 minutes.
For slow stirring, combining, mashing,
starting all mixing procedures. Use to
add flour and dry ingredients to batter,
and add liquids to dry ingredients. Do
not use Speed 1 (STIR) to mix or knead
yeast doughs.
For slow mixing, mashing, faster
stirring. Use to mix and knead yeast
doughs, heavy batters and candies,
start mashing potatoes or other
vegetables, cut shortening into flour,
mix thin or splashy batters. Use with
Can Opener attachment.
For mixing semi-heavy batters, such as
cookies. Use to combine sugar and
shortening and to add sugar to egg
whites for meringues. Medium speed for
cake mixes. Use with: Food Grinder,
Rotor Slicer/Shredder, Pasta Roller, and
Fruit/Vegetable Strainer.
For medium fast beating (creaming) or
whipping. Use to finish mixing cake,
doughnut, and other batters. High speed
for cake mixes. Use with Citrus Juicer
attachment.
For whipping cream, egg whites, and
boiled frostings.
For whipping small amounts of cream,
egg whites or for final whipping of
mashed potatoes.
NOTE: Will not maintain fast speeds
under heavy loads, such as when using
Pasta Maker or Grain Mill attachments.
