I love making angel food cakes, but my KA stand mixer's bowl isn't large enough to handle 14 to 16 egg whites plus the addition of flour and other dry ingredients. Mixing all is a challenge. I've transferred the whites to a larger bowl, then folded my ingredients, but doing this is a bit of a pain. I've been thinking about buying a large copper bowl and a hand mixer but have been told that hand mixers don't do a very good of job whipping large quantities of whites. Before I invest in some new kitchen equipment, does anyone use a hand mixer for beating large quantities of egg whites and if so, have you had good results? What mixer do you use? Any help would be appreciated.
p.s. I would have to work out more consistently to hand whip a large batch of whites - that's why I'm interested in getting a hand mixer, just for this task. thanks again!
