How to use a Dough Hook
For great bread that can be made right at home, your dough hook can be your best friend by streamlining the dough-making process no matter the recipe. The compatible dough hook for your stand mixer may be a C-shaped hook that comes with all KitchenAid® tilt-head stand mixers and select bowl-lift models, or a spiral-shaped dough hook that comes with large-capacity bowl-lift stand mixers.
The C-shaped hook kneads by pushing the ball of dough against the sides of the mixing bowl while a spiral-shaped hook kneads by pushing dough off the bottom of the bowl. The instructions below can help you use a stand mixer dough hook accessory, so you can take your dough-making skills to a new level.
