A blender is a kitchen appliance used for mixing, pureeing, or emulsifying food and liquids by blending them into a smooth consistency. It typically consists of a container with a rotating blade powered by an electric motor.
A food processor is versatile and can perform a wide range of food preparation tasks, including kneading dough, making nut butter, grinding meat, and mixing ingredients for sauces and dips. It is a valuable tool for saving time and effort in the kitchen, especially for tasks that would be labor-intensive or time-consuming to do by hand.
A stand mixer is a kitchen appliance used for mixing, beating, and kneading ingredients for baking and cooking. It typically consists of a stand with a mixing bowl and a motorised mixer head with various attachments for different tasks, such as mixing dough, whipping cream, and beating eggs.
A stick mixer, also known as an immersion blender or hand blender, is a kitchen appliance used for blending, pureeing, and mixing ingredients directly in a bowl, pot, or container. It consists of a handheld motorised unit with a blending shaft and blade at the end, allowing for convenient and precise blending without the need for transferring ingredients to a separate blender or food processor.
A hand mixer is a handheld kitchen appliance used for mixing, beating, and whipping ingredients such as batter, cream, and eggs. It typically consists of two motorised beaters attached to a handle, powered by an electric motor. Hand mixers are versatile and convenient for small-scale mixing tasks, offering ease of use and storage compared to larger stand mixers.
