Just payin' my dues...KA vs Bosch
So when I tripped and fell in the back yard and messed up my shoulders, the least of my worries was what brand of mixer to use to make the Swedish Tea Rings at Christmas for my family. Never, never start a tradition with sweet bread...
The KA 600 Pro I got is growling and snapping, so I call the warranty seller and, after veiled threats, they honor the current warranty (full replacement) rather than the warranty taking force in December ( 75% of purchase price). So much for KA's fabled warranty. Gone. "So sorry, not my problem".
So I buy the Bosch Universal Plus. I'm male, need more power. To make my two loaves of whole wheat per week, fed through the Brod&Taylor folding proofer in a perfect man oriented process. And the Swedish Tea Rings on my cut down cooling racks on carriage bolt legs to do two at once.
Problem: the Bosch U P won't knead two loaves...7-8 cups flour. Now what? The new (after market) small batch set up http://www.fykitchen.com/Details.cfm?ProdID=1690 ? Void my warranty? Break the plastic hook with Bob's Red Mill flour?
Any suggestions out there? I come before you as a neophyte pleading for help from the gurus.
