Please explain the different mixers on a hand mixer!

nooodles | Jan 27, 2005 01:18 AM

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?
