Durability of mixers
Yesterday I was making a batch of Kolaches and the dough was being kneaded in my Cuisinart mixer. I was busy making the apricot filling. When I wasn't looking, my mixer "walked" off the edge of the counter crashing to my tile floor. My first words were not "Oh Golly". The top came off, the front door came off and it unplugged itself. I put it back together, plugged it in and it worked just fine. No damage! Remarkable! I know many of you use Kitchenaid mixers and I hope they are as durable. Does anyone have stories of "walking mixers" or how to prevent them from doing it?
Lastly, how do you pronounce Kolache?
Is it: Ko-lach, Ko-LACH-key, Ko-LACH- ee, Ko-lach-cha. Perhaps it depends on your nationality.
