Assistent VS. Globe 10qt
Hey there everyone, I'm new here and I've been trawling the forum and reading up on mixers. Two that have stuck out to me are the globe 10qt and the Ankarsrum Assistent.
I'd be using the mixer to make significant batches of bread, croissants and brioche, possibly on a small commercial scale and was wondering what you folks might suggest?
Mechanically I like the engine belt on the Assistent and don't mind the learning curve, however there seems to be an awful lot of plastic in its construction which I'm a tad leery of, also while it seems great for bread, how is it for doughs with a lot of butter in them? Croissants being my main concern.
As pertains to the Globe, while it is powerful, I fear it would suffer from the same overheating issues as a KA (I have a 600, ick!), also I'm afraid that it won't be able to reach the dough should I choose every now and then to make a small recipe of something.
I'd likely be making croissants 40 or 80 at a time so I'd be using one or two kilos of flour respectively, can the Assistent handle the latter?
I'm looking for a mixer that will last me a lifetime and which can be repaired instead of chucked out.
Thanks for the feedback everyone!
