Although the two terms sound similar, mixers and blenders are extremely different kitchen appliances. One is used to combine softer ingredients without breaking them down too much, while the other is used to completely break down ingredients so they become a smooth puree. Kitchen Habit explains exactly how a blender motor works, but to put it simply, a blender has controls on the base, blades that break up chunks of ingredients, and a glass bowl or pitcher for holding the mixture once it’s been blended down. 

A mixer, on the other hand, is something that is more often used in baking than cooking. Most mixers have a motor in the back of the machine and an arm that extends over the top of a metal bowl. Mixers generally have three basic attachments: A whisk, a bread hook, and a basic “mixer” extension. These are used for making things like cake batters, icings, and, of course, bread.
