is there any difference between a paddle and a beater?
OR are they one and the same simply referred to by two different names - paddle/beater?
Hello, a whisk/beater allows air in and a paddle does not which helps when working with butter, for instance. Paddles can also scrape the sides of a bowl. Typically, recipes will specify whether a paddle or beater is needed which thankfully takes the guess work out of it. Thank you!
