Please explain the different mixers on a hand mixer!
I have a cheap hand mixer and have been wondering this for awhile: what's the difference between the two types of mixers?
One is a thinner wire, a little thicker than the wires on a balloon whisk.
The other is what I always thought of as a more "standard" hand mixer attachment, the wires are flat and wider.
What's used for what? Does it truly make a difference?
