If you make bread a lot then the dough hook is going to be your best friend. The wonderful thing about the dough hook because of it's shape, it has a little bit of a twist to it also this could be used for both mixing bread and for kneading it. So if you like making bread a lot but you don't always have time to knead it by hand, this is fantastic. It cuts through a really heavy thick doughs like nothing else. For this you're going to use a much much slower speed than for other parts of the mixer. Because you are not trying to get a lot of air into a bread dough that is what's going to happen when the yeast makes it rise all your trying to do is incorporate all of the ingredients equally. You're going to use a nice slow speed and maybe kick it up one more notch but really the slowest speed is where you're going to have it. Because of the shape of the hook, it allows for lots of things to get through so if you have a nice heavy bread dough it's going to cut through it also if you're going to be putting lots of additional ingredients into your bread dough. Perhaps you are making a sundried tomato and olive bread all of those ingredients can easily be incorporated the bread dough hook without any problems.
