mixen vs. mischen

< Previous | Next >


Español de España

I have seen both "mixen" and "mischen" translated as "mix" in dictionaries, but "mixen" sometimes also as "blend".

My question is, are mixen and mischen synonymns, or does mixen always impy that you mix something using a blender, mixer, etc.? (applied to cooking)

    Hi, I spoken about it with my wife, and I agree that "mixen" mostly involves a device. It is also more intensive than mischen.

    So mischen is when you mix flour and sugar, for example.

    We have also combined words / Milchmixgetränk - milk with syrup or cacao, Mischbatterie (that water tap that mixes cold and warm water.)
