Mixing Time

Your KitchenAid stand mixer will mix faster and more thoroughly than most other electric stand mixers. Therefore. the mixing time

Mixer Use

NOTE: Do not scrape bowl while stand mixer is operating.

The bowl and beater are designed to provide thorough mixing without frequent scraping. Scraping the bowl once or twice during mixing is usually sufficient. Turn stand mixer off before scraping.

The stand mixer may warm up during use. Under heavy loads with extended mixing time. you may not be able to comfortably touch the top of the stand mixer. This is normal.

Injury Hazard

Unplug mixer before touching beaters.

Failure to do so can result in broken bones. cuts or bruises.

Bowl. white flat beater and white spiral dough hook may be washed in an automatic dishwasher. Or. clean them thoroughly in hot sudsy water and rinse completely before drying. Wire whip. burnished spiral dough hook and burnished flat beater should be hand washed and dried immediately. Do not wash wire whip. burnished spiral dough hook and burnished flat beater in a dishwasher. Do not store beaters on shaft.

Care and Cleaning

1. Unplug stand mixer.

2. Place bowl lift handle in down position.

3. Attach flat beater.

4. Adjust so flat beater just clears bottom surface of bowl when in lifted position by turning screw (A) counterclockwise to raise the bowl and clockwise to lower the bowl. Just a slight turn is all that is required: the screw will not rotate more than 1⁄4 turn (90 degrees) in either direction. (The full range of adjustment is 1⁄2 turn. or 180 degrees.) 5. Place bowl lift handle in up position to check clearance.

6. Repeat steps 4 and 5 if necessary.

NOTE: When properly adjusted. the flat beater will not strike on the bottom or side of the bowl. If the flat beater or the wire whip is so close that it strikes the bottom of the bowl. coating may wear off the beater or wires on whip may wear.

Beater to Bowl Clearance

Your stand mixer is adjusted at the factory so the flat beater just clears the bottom of the bowl. If. for any reason. the flat beater hits the bottom of the bowl or is too far away from the bowl. you can correct the clearance easily.

NOTE: Always be sure to unplug stand mixer before cleaning. Wipe stand mixer with a soft. damp cloth.

Do not use household/commercial cleaners. Do not immerse in water.

Wipe off beater shaft frequently. removing any residue that may accumulate.

Speed Control Guide

All speeds have the Soft Start feature which automatically starts the stand mixer at a lower speed to help avoid ingredient splash-out and “flour puff” at start-up then quickly increases to the selected speed for optimal performance.

Number of Speed Stir Speed STIR 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 STIR speed to mix or knead yeast doughs.

SLOW MIXING 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.

MIXING.

For mixing semi-heavy batters. such as BEATING 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.

BEATING.

For medium-fast beating (creaming) or CREAMING whipping. Use to finish mixing cake. doughnut. and other batters. High speed for cake mixes. Use with Citrus Juicer attachment.

FAST BEATING.

For whipping cream. egg whites. and WHIPPING boiled frostings.

FAST WHIPPING For whipping small amounts of cream. egg whites or for final whipping of mashed potatoes. Use with Pasta Maker and Grain Mill attachments.

NOTE: Will not maintain fast speeds under heavy loads. such as when using Pasta Maker or Grain Mill attachments.

Use Speed 2 to mix or knead yeast doughs. Use of any other speed creates high potential for stand mixer failure. The PowerKnead Spiral Dough Hook efficiently kneads most yeast dough within 4 minutes.

Mixing Tips

Converting Your Recipe for the Mixer

The mixing instructions for recipes in this book can guide you in converting your own favorite recipes for preparation with your KitchenAid stand mixer. Look for recipes similar to yours and then adapt your recipes to use the procedures in the similar KitchenAid recipes.

For example. the “quick mix” method (sometimes referred to as the “dump” method) is ideal for simple cakes. such as the Quick Yellow Cake and Easy White Cake included in this book. This method calls for combining dry ingredients with most or all liquid ingredients in one step.

More elaborate cakes. such as Caramel Walnut Banana Torte. should be prepared using the traditional cake mixing method.

With this method. sugar and the shortening. butter or margarine are thoroughly mixed (creamed) before other ingredients are added.

For all cakes. mixing times may change because your KitchenAid stand mixer works more quickly than other mixers. In general. mixing a cake with the KitchenAid stand mixer will take about half the time called for in most cake recipes.

To help determine the ideal mixing time. observe the batter or dough and mix only until it has the desired appearance described in your recipe. such as “smooth and creamy.” To select the best mixing speeds. use the “Speed Control Guide” section.

Adding Ingredients

Always add ingredients as close to side of bowl as possible. not directly into moving beater. The Pouring Shield can be used to simplify adding ingredients.

NOTE: If ingredients in very bottom of bowl are not thoroughly mixed. then the beater is not far enough into the bowl. See the “Beater to Bowl Clearance” section.

Cake Mixes

When preparing packaged cake mixes. use Speed 2 for low speed.

Speed 4 for medium speed. and Speed 6 for high speed. For best results. mix for the time stated on the package directions.

Adding Nuts. Raisins. or Candied Fruits

Follow individual recipes for guidelines on including these ingredients. In general. solid materials should be folded in the last few seconds of mixing on STIR Speed. The batter should be thick enough to keep the fruit or nuts from sinking to the bottom of the pan during baking. Sticky fruits should be dusted with flour for better distribution in the batter.

Liquid Mixtures

Mixtures containing large amounts of liquid ingredients should be mixed at lower speeds to avoid splashing. Increase speed only after mixture has thickened.

Egg Whites

Place room temperature egg whites in clean. dry bowl. Attach bowl and wire whip. To avoid splashing. gradually turn to designated speed and whip to desired stage. See chart below.

AMOUNT SPEED

Whipping Stages

With your KitchenAid stand mixer. egg whites whip quickly. So. watch to avoid overwhipping. This list tells you what to expect.

Frothy Large. uneven air bubbles.

Begins to Hold Shape Air bubbles are fine and compact; product is white.

Soft Peak Tips of peaks fall over when wire whip is removed.

Almost Stiff Sharp peaks form when wire whip is removed. but whites are actually soft.

Stiff but not Dry Sharp. stiff peaks form when wire whip is removed. Whites are uniform in color and glisten.

Stiff and Dry Sharp. stiff peaks form when wire whip is removed. Whites are speckled and dull in appearance.

Whipped Cream

Pour cold whipping cream into chilled bowl. Attach bowl and wire whip. To avoid splashing. gradually turn to designated speed and whip to desired stage. See chart below.

AMOUNT SPEED

1⁄4 cup (50 mL) ..GRADUALLY to 10 1⁄2 cup (125 mL) GRADUALLY to 10 1 cup (250 mL) ..GRADUALLY to 8 1 pint (500 mL) ..GRADUALLY to 8

Whipping Stages

Watch cream closely during whipping. Because your KitchenAid stand mixer whips so quickly. there are just a few seconds between whipping stages.

Look for these characteristics:

Begins to Thicken Cream is thick and custard-like.

Holds its Shape Cream forms soft peaks when wire whip is removed. Can be folded into other ingredients when making desserts and sauces.

Stiff Cream stands in stiff. sharp peaks when wire whip is removed. Use for topping on cakes or desserts. or filling for cream puffs.

“Rapid Mix” describes a bread baking method that calls for dry yeast to be mixed with other dry ingredients before liquid is added.

In contrast. the traditional method is to dissolve yeast in warm water.

1. Place all dry ingredients including yeast into bowl. except last 1 to 2 cups flour.

2. Attach bowl and PowerKnead Spiral Dough Hook. Raise mixer bowl. Turn to Speed 2 and mix about 15 seconds. or until ingredients are combined.

3. Continuing on Speed 2. gradually add liquid ingredients to flour mixture and mix 1 to 2 minutes longer. See Illustration A.

NOTE: If liquid ingredients are added too quickly. they will form a pool around the PowerKnead Spiral Dough Hook and slow down mixing process.

4. Continuing on Speed 2. gently add remaining flour. 1⁄2 cup at a time. See Illustration B. Mix until dough starts to clean sides of bowl. about 2 minutes.

5. Knead on Speed 2 for 2 more minutes. or until dough is smooth and elastic. See Illustration C.

6. Lower bowl on mixer and remove dough from the bowl and PowerKnead Spiral Dough Hook. Follow directions in recipe for rising. shaping and baking.

When using the traditional method to prepare a favorite recipe. dissolve yeast in warm water in warmed bowl. Add remaining liquids and dry ingredients. except last 1 to 2 cups flour. Turn to Speed 2 and mix about 1 minute. or until ingredients are thoroughly mixed. Proceed with steps 4 through 6.

Both methods work equally well for bread preparation. However. the “Rapid Mix” method may be a bit faster and easier for new bread bakers. It is slightly more temperature tolerant because the yeast is mixed with dry ingredients rather than with warm liquid.

YEAST BREADS AND QUICK BREADS

Bread Making Tips

Making bread with a mixer is quite different from making bread by hand. Therefore. it will take some practice before you are completely comfortable with the new process.

For your convenience. we offer these tips to help you become accustomed to bread making the KitchenAid brand way.

• Start out with an easy recipe. such as the “Basic White Bread” recipe. until you are familiar with using the PowerKnead Spiral Dough Hook.

• Always use the PowerKnead Spiral Dough Hook to mix and knead yeast doughs.

• Use Speed 2 to mix or knead yeast doughs. Use of any other speed creates high potential for stand mixer failure.

• Do not use recipes calling for more than 14 cups all-purpose flour or 8 cups whole-wheat flour when making dough with a 6 qt mixer.

• Do not use recipes calling for more than 12 cups all-purpose flour or 6 cups whole-wheat flour when making dough with a 5 qt mixer.

• Use a candy or other kitchen thermometer to assure that liquids are at temperature specified in the recipe. Liquids at higher temperature can kill yeast. while liquids at lower temperatures will retard yeast growth.

• Warm all ingredients to room temperature to ensure proper rising of dough. If yeast is to be dissolved in bowl. always warm bowl first by rinsing with warm water to avoid cooling of liquids.

• Allow bread to rise in a warm place. 80°F to 85°F. free from draft. unless otherwise specified in recipe.

• Here are some alternative rising methods to use: (1) The bowl containing the dough can be placed on a wire rack over a pan of hot water. (2) The bowl can be placed on the top rack of an unheated oven; put a pan of hot water on the rack below. (3) Turn the oven to 400°F for 1 minute; then turn it off; place the bowl on the center rack of the oven and close the door.

Cover bowl with waxed paper. if desired. Always cover with towel to retain warmth in the bowl and protect the dough from drafts.

• Recipe rising times may vary due to temperature and humidity in your kitchen. Dough has doubled in bulk when indentation remains after tips of fingers are pressed lightly and quickly into dough.

• Most bread recipes give a range for the amount of flour to be used. Enough flour has been added when the dough starts to clean sides of bowl. If dough is sticky or humidity is high. slowly add more flour. about 1⁄2 cup at a time but do not exceed recommended flour capacity.

Knead after each addition until flour is completely worked into dough. If too much flour is added. a dry loaf will result.

• When done. yeast breads and rolls should be deep golden brown in color. Other tests for doneness of breads are: Bread pulls away from the sides of pan. and tapping on the top of the loaf produces a hollow sound.

Turn loaves and rolls onto racks immediately after baking to avoid sogginess.

Divide dough in half. On lightly floured surface. roll each half into a rectangle. approximately 9 x 14". A rolling pin will smooth dough and remove gas bubbles.

Starting at a short end. roll dough tightly. Pinch dough to seal seam.

Pinch ends and turn under. Place. seam side down. in loaf pan.

Follow directions in recipe for rising and baking.
