Designed for use at speed 1 and 2 on the KitchenAid stand mixer, the dough hook will become your trusty sidekick when you are whipping up heavy mixtures such as pizza dough, pasta or bread.


Follow these simple steps to get started:

  • Attach your flat beater, add your ingredients to the stand mixer bowl and mix to combine the ingredients whilst kneading on speed 1.
  • Remove your flat beater and attached your dough hook, and knead the dough for 5 minutes on low speed (1 & 2). Always ensure that you knead on low speed so as not to overheat the motor.
  • When its ready the dough will leave the sides of the bowl clear and will gather around the dough hook.

      • If your stand mixer wobbles or the beater may be hitting the base of the bowl, a hinge pin adjustment may be required on your stand mixer. Find instructions here.
      • If you find that your beater isn't scraping the ingredients at the bottom of the bowl, read our instructions below or watch this video on how to adjust your beater to bowl clearance. 

      Adjusting the beater to bowl clearance

      Tilt the mixer head down, slide an envelope or folded piece of paper between the beater and the bowl. The beater should not be touching the bottom of the bowl. The correct clearance is the thickness of the two pieces of paper. Lift the head up, you should see a rectangle hole with a flat head screw. Turn the screw counter clockwise or left to raise the beater. Turn the screw clockwise or right to lower the beater. Each time only turn the screw about a ¼ turn at a time and test again with the paper. Throughout the life of the mixer, the height may need to be adjusted as it may alter with normal use of the mixer.
