Whether you’re a seasoned baker or only cook at home, the Deluxe Stand Mixer will quickly become a fixture in your kitchen. Why? Because it takes the guesswork out of everyday baking and meal-making with easy-to-use presets.
We know it’s tempting to just take your Deluxe Stand Mixer out of the box, toss in some ingredients, and get mixing, but when you take the time to get to know your new mixer, you’ll get the most delicious results. This article will help you get more familiar with your Deluxe Stand Mixer and it’ll also give you some tips and tricks along the way.
What Makes My Deluxe Stand Mixer Special?
From its no-guess presets to convenient cleanup, this stand mixer helps you prepare everything from delicious weeknight meals to creamy, dreamy desserts without the mess.
All 5 presets reach the ideal time and speed, so you get optimal results every time. Plus, use the Custom setting to set a specific time and choose from 8 manual speeds to make recipes you already know and love.
The presets always starts out slow, gradually increases to full speed, and automatically stops mixing when it’s done. That means you’ll never undermix pizza dough or overmix brownie batter again!
The LCD display clearly shows you the timer, mixing speed, recommended accessory for your chosen preset, and if the mixer’s sounds have been muted.
Easy to Move & Store
Thanks to the even weight distribution, cord storage, and carrying handle, you can easily move and store it in your kitchen.
You can add your accessories by just tilting the head. Then, push the lever to lock it in place. If the tilting head isn’t locked into place, the mixer will automatically stop mixing!
Don’t stress about the mess! All the accessories, including the bowl, are dishwasher-safe.

Which Preset Should I Use?
Whether you want to bake a loaf of bread or mix up mashed potatoes, the preset you use depends on what you’re going to make. While each preset is programmed to gradually reach the optimal speed, they each create different—and always delicious—results.
When used with the whisk, this setting is much more powerful (and quicker!) than whipping by hand. In fact, it incorporates a lot of air into your ingredients, giving you lighter frostings, frothier egg whites, and fluffier cakes.
Use the Whip Setting to make:
- Whipped cream
- Meringue cookies
- Whipped frosting (Swiss and Italian meringue)
- Whipped cream cheese
- Frothy egg whites for souffles, angel food cake, etc.
- Homemade butter
- Egg salad
- No-churn ice cream
Have you ever come across a recipe that requires creaming? That’s exactly what the Cream Setting is for! Using the scraping beater, you’re able to perfectly combine sugar and softened butter or shortening until it’s light and fluffy without fear of overmixing or undermixing.

There’s magic in the mixing—especially when it comes to the Mix Setting. When used with the scraping beater, this setting combines ingredients slowly, without adding too much air—which is perfect when you want a more delicate texture.
Use the Mix Setting to make:
- Brownie, muffin, banana bread, and quick bread box mixes
Whenever a recipe calls for you to rigorously mix your ingredients into a fluffy or smooth texture, use the scraping beater on the Beat Setting. Since this setting uses a medium-high speed, it adds just the right amount of air while blending all your ingredients together.
Use the Beat Setting to make:
- Cake batter
- Cream cheese-based dips
- Mashed potatoes
Have you ever tried to make your own sandwich bread or pizza dough? Well, with your Deluxe Stand Mixer, you can make any kind of dough with ease! Just use the dough hook on the Knead Setting to slowly work your ingredients together into a soft ball of dough. Since it mixes in the same motion as kneading by hand, you’ll get the same results in half the time and with less mess!
Use the Knead Setting to make:
- Sandwich bread
- Dinner rolls
- Cinnamon rolls
- Brioche buns
- Pizza dough
- Pita and naan flatbreads (without yeast)
The Custom Setting lets you run the show! You choose the speed and time, which gives you both control and flexibility. Use this setting when you’re making a family-favorite recipe or need to mix something at a specific speed and for a specific time.
Use the Custom Setting to make:
- Tried-and-true recipes that require particular speeds and mixing times.
- Recipes that call for specific mixing speeds.
- Low = 1–2
- Medium = 3–5
- High = 6–8
