I was watching a show on the history of kitchen gadgets, and one was the stand mixer. They showed a really old one, which looked exactly like my maternal grandmother's. Yet, I realized that neither my other grandmother, nor mother, had stand mixers. I don't, either. Like them, I have a hand mixer, which I love, plus a food processor, etc.
But, on the show, they had 2 bakers there making an identical cake. One beat it by hand, one used a stand mixer. The results were astonishing. The latter was at least 50% taller, and they said that the texture/crumb was much better.
Do you have/use a stand mixer? Did your mom or grandmothers use them?
