Electric mixers are great tools for beating eggs, blending batters and more. The best mixer for you will depend on what you plan to use it for.
There are two basic types of mixers: hand mixers and stand mixers. Hand mixers are usually less expensive and take up less space, and they're generally adequate for beating eggs, blending cake or pancake batters and whipping mashed potatoes. However, if you want to use your mixer for bread dough, cookie dough or other thicker or more complicated mixtures, you'll be better off with a stand mixer.
Stand mixers come with bowls, which have varying capacities, so consider how much dough or batter you want to be able to make at a time. Pay attention to power ratings as well: if you'll be preparing thick batters or doughs, you'll want a mixer with a more powerful motor.
Finally, consider what attachments you may have use for. Certain attachments will allow you to knead dough, grind meat, make pasta, juice fruits and vegetables, and even open cans.
At Walmart, you'll find a wide variety of mixers at Every Day Low Prices. Save money. Live better.
