Single/twin tool attachment View more details.

Single tool attachments can handle heavier loads and can knead dough. This type is for the serious and regular cook, and ideal for batch preparation. Twin tool attachments are a cheaper alternative for the occasional cook, but if you're making dough you'll need to knead it by hand.
