Manual or stationary
A kitchen mixer is a mechanism necessary for better mixing and whipping ingredients with the help of nozzles. On the shelves there are devices of manual and stationary types. During the operation of the hand mixer, you must hold it in your hand. The corollas can be lowered into a suitable container of any material in which ingredients are added as needed.
Since the container needs to be held in the process of mixing, both hands are occupied.

The stationary device is supplied with a bowl of optimum depth.

The advantage is that the whole structure is confidently installed on the table, you do not need to hold anything in your hands. While the bowl with nozzles rotates, hands remain free and you can perform other work.
The disadvantage of the stationary model can be considered a higher price in comparison with the manual one. Such devices, as a rule, do not have compact dimensions, for their storage in a small kitchen will have to allocate a certain place.
