Our mixers' planetary action means much faster mixing and kneading action than by hand or with mixers made by other manufacturers. Because of this, the kneading time can be significantly reduced in most bread recipes, so you get delicious homemade bread even quicker!
KitchenAid recommends adapting your favorite recipes to the speeds and times recommended in your Owner's Manual for best results.
A guide to kneading times
- Kneading with a KitchenAid mixer for 2 minutes is equivalent to kneading 10-12 minutes by hand.
- KitchenAid does not recommend kneading bread dough for more than 2 minutes at Speed 2, and that the total mixing and kneading time does not exceed 4-6 minutes.
A guide to kneading speeds
It is important to use only Speed 2, never higher or lower, when kneading yeast dough.
