A dough hook is a mixer attachment, typically shaped like a helix (corkscrew shape) or hook. Beaters are used with foods which require great force to mix. Example usages:

Dough hooks are not very good for making whipped cream from cream, beating Eggs to make a meringue, or mixing thin cake batter. Normal beaters are much more efficient for these tasks.

Unlike most beaters, dough hooks are typically easy to clean.
