Powder to water?

I've been doing some reading of late on concrete, especially Quikrete. A couple of times I saw....

Always add the powder to the water

Whats the big deal with this? I use cement a bit, but am clearly no Pro. So what's the big deal if I add mix to the water, or just dump the bag into a mixing pan then add water to mix?

Concrete is a chemical reaction of the blended components. You get a better product with the precscribed method. Placing water onto the cement starts the hydration process before the materials are properly mixed.
