What to buy?
I am looking to buy a mixer. My very first. I have always loved the Kitchenaids, but have heard the quality is not the same as my grandmothers. This lead me to do a little more research. I do bake sometimes, but not on a large scale. Enough for my family of 4. I heard that KA fixed their gear housing problems and went back to the metal ones, but have also read that they don't really handle bread dough all that well. I would probably only be making a couple loaves at a time. But do I really want to buy it and then find out that I want to bake more, and not have a machine that can handle it? So I started looking at the Bosch and the DLX. Both seam like awesome machines. And from what I have read, both would be able to handle small batches well enough. We also do pulled pork and chicken a lot, which was another reason I was looking at a mixer. I know that the KA and the Bosch can shred meat, but what about the DLX? Any ideas or input would be greatly appreciated!
