About Food Mixers
Nothing beats home cooking, but believe us here at OnBuy when we say that having a helping hand to speed meal prep along definitely adds to the enjoyment! The best food mixers are a fantastic way of adding convenience to your comfort food and a dash of the debonair to your fine dining.
While stand food mixers are well known - and well-loved by many a gifted chef too! - don't forget the simple magic of hand mixers either. It's easier to whisk cake mix with a mixer with a crank than by your own strength alone - and electric hand mixers only make it even easier!
OnBuy's collection of food mixers and blenders will help you in the kitchen with things like mincing meat, baking cakes, creating your very own fruit juice - maybe even kneading dough for bread and pizza bases!
Peckish? Let's get to work!
What are food mixers used for?
Food mixers use the natural leverage that comes from gears turning to make mixing food - sweet or savoury - easier to do. That's how hand food mixers work, while the best food mixers often use electronics to mix your goodies too!
What makes food mixers and blenders great is that they not only take a lot of hassle out of getting meals ready to cook and eat, but also that they can be used for a huge range of different meals and dietary choices.
A lot of food mixers are designed to take the strain out of repetitive motions, such as beating eggs, stirring a cake mix or churning your mince, beans, sauce and spices together for a chilli con carne. Some of the best food mixers also come with a dough hook, meaning they can help you prepare dough for baking into bread or crafting into a delicious pizza base.
Simpler hand mixers ought not be overlooked though. As one example, a hand mixer that turns meat into mince can help you enjoy much more variety in how you prepare dinner - as well as letting you only mince as much as you need, rather than accidentally buying too much and risking food waste.
What's the difference between a food mixer and blender?A food mixer and blender combination machine can certainly add some pizzazz to your meal prep, but sometimes you might prefer one or the other.
Understanding the difference between food mixers and blenders is just a case of whether you're making solids or liquids. A food mixer is used to combine lots of ingredients into a whole, all mixed together, while a blender is designed to break everything inside of it down to become one fluid.
The blades of blenders move far more rapidly than those of food mixers, meaning that making things like whipped cream, bolognese mix or guacamole are all best handled by food mixers. Meanwhile, your blender can handle things like making juices and soups.
On top of everything we've discussed, however, don't forget that the best food mixers are often pretty stylish as well as being useful! While hand food mixers lean towards the more practical look, stand food mixers can have all kinds of colours, designs, shapes and sizes - and that's a big part of what makes browsing OnBuy's food mixers range so fantastically fun!
