Right fit for dough hook and whip???
Newbie here. Could anyone advise on what the proper fit is like for attachments?? Meaning, should some attachments not touch the bottom of the bowl?
I'm working on getting a whip and dough hook for an old Hobart c100 mixer. The hook I ordered which was labeled as a c100 hook, when attached to the mixer- there's at least a 1/2 inch to 3/4 inch space between the hook and the bottom of the bowl. That space used to drive me bonkers on the kitchenaid (and now I read that there's a fix for that) b/c ingredients at the bottom would never mix. Is a "C" or "J" hook supposed to not touch the bottom of the bowl?
How about the proper fit of a whip? There's the same 1/2 to 3/4 inch gap between the broken whip (missing many wires) and the bottom of the bowl. I guess it could handle whipping things if enough volume is put in, but it won't properly whip the ingredients at the bottom. Nor will it do small quantity whipping. I put in 2 eggs in the 10 qt bowl and the whip didn't even touch them. Is it supposed to be like this? High volume only? Or should the whip skim the bottom of the bowl?
Looking forward to your input.........
