The paddle attachment is a must-have for any stand mixer lover. It is versatile enough for all your baking needs – from creaming butter and sugar to whipping up heavy batters like cookie dough. When it comes to creaming butter and sugar, the paddle attachment also introduces less air when compared with the whisk. This gives your cakes a melt-in-your-mouth, buttery texture.

Some paddle attachments come with a rubber scraper attached to the sides of the paddle. This saves you time in scraping out sticky mixtures from the bowl.

But the paddle can be used for recipes other than desserts: it can mash potatoes, shred meat for pulled pork or shredded chicken, and make creamy dips.

Here’s a simple 10-minute guacamole recipe to make the most out of your stand mixer’s paddle attachment.


 3 ripe avocados, chopped
 2 tomatoes, chopped
 1 lime's worth of juice
 1 large red onion, diced
 1 sprig of coriander, finely chopped
 1 garlic clove, finely chopped



Add avocados and lime juice into the bowl. Using the paddle attachment, mix avocados and lime juice on medium speed. Add salt and cayenne pepper.


Add the tomatoes, onion, coriander and garlic. Mix with a large spoon.


Chill guacamole in a covered bowl for at least an hour before serving. Serve with your favourite corn chips.
