Kitchen Aid

November 29, 2012 - 12:06am -- equator180

I like so many on here use a Kitchen Aid. Mine, an Artisan model is an indispensable partner in the kitchen. I have tried a few different things with it but have settled on none and was looking for opinions on which speed to use when I am mixing my dough. I am new to the game and have only been baking breads for a few months and any advice would be appreciated.

RPMs on the DLX & Greetings

March 24, 2010 - 8:53am -- RugBoy

Hi everybody!

I don't think I've posted before, but I figured out a way to get the exact RPM count on the DLX, and I thought some of you might be interested.  I put a little sticky note on the side of the bowl, and took video at the three lowest speeds.  Next I played them back in slow motion, and counted turns with the second timer.

The very lowest setting turned out to be 60 rpms, where the second line starts was 120 rpms, and where the third line starts was 180 rpms.  Of course, this was under no load, but at least it gives a benchmark.
