Stand mixer FAQs

One is basically the general term for the other. A stand mixer can be anything from a baking mixer to a food mixer or thermo cooker. Mixers are characterised above all by a planetary mixing system and their ability to produce dough very well.

If you like to knead bread dough and heavy yeast dough, we recommend a stand mixer with at least 1500 watts.

Safety always comes first. Make sure you have a firm stance (most of our food mixers have suction cups), a secure connection and that the mixer is used correctly. This also includes not exceeding the maximum capacity of the stand mixer.

Yes! Our GrandPrix thermal cooker with powerful motor helps you with chopping, cooking, steaming, stirring, kneading and much more. You will find many suitable recipes in our magazine.​

Food mixers are practical helpers for almost everything in the kitchen. They can help you realise recipes faster and easier. Classic mixing and kneading machines are especially helpful when baking. You can find many inspiring baking recipes in our Klarstein Magazine.​

This also depends on the type and performance of your food mixer. Excessive amounts of dough and hard foods such as nuts, frozen meat or similar should have no place in mixers. However, if you have a multifunctional food mixer with a blender or a thermo cooker, these foods could be possible. Always be careful not to overload your machine. Most stand mixers have overheating protection, but if you feel uncertain, turn off and unplug the appliance.

That depends on the quantities you want to cook on a regular basis. Most of our food processors have a bowl with a capacity of 5 litres. You can use it to prepare 2 kg of dough at once.

There is no general answer to that either. There are usually 3 attachments for mixers: Mixing and kneading hooks as well as a whisk. There are many more accessories that can be used with multifunctional food mixer: Blender, meat grinder, pasta machine, biscuit press, steamer attachment and much more.
