My mom's and my Sunbeams (circa 1940 and 1963) did not exhibit this characteristic. The beater thingies were interchangeable. For my Big Move I bought a 220 volt Kenwood in 1989 and was astonished to find it had only one (large and K-shaped) beater-thingy. Well, actually it came with three, but one of the others was for whisking egg-whites and such, and the the other was a hook-shaped thing for kneading bread-dough-type stuff, neither to be used at the same time as the K-shaped, regular cake-dough beating one. So I don't know the answer to your question, but I suspect it's part of the Plot to Increase Complexity in the world (Evil Design).

Yeah...I almost broke my mom's this afternoon when I was trying to beat whipping cream. *annoyed*

I thought they were all like that, oddly asymmetrical! Sinister and evil. Still, I'm hoping against hope there is some very good reason for it, so that I'll get to have one of those Very Small Epiphanies.

I had an old sunbeam my mom found at a thrift store until recently, and it had two slightly different beaters... I thought the reason was so the narrower one would fit the slope of the side of the bowl, while the wider one stayed in the middle.

badger

Ah... you are cleverer than I am! But then still, why are the plug ends of them different?

qp

Hm! I don't think mine were... that's how I figured out by trial and error that they had to go in a certain way, so one wouldn't grind against the side of the bowl. Maybe they were trying to be helpful in later models... to prevent people from trying them the opposite way?
