Sadly, we purchased a KitchenAid Pro 600 back in 2006, when some models had plastic gear boxes and some had metal. Ours ended up having the plastic box. (Since then, I've learned to do a LOT more research before a major purchase.)
OK, so apparently I triggered the spam filter when I tried to post the link, but KAF is having a free shipping offer now, and it appears to include their AP unbleached, white whole wheat, and whole wheat flours. Just FYI, as I know that many folks here use their flour (including me) and the shipping is a killer.
If you go to the King Arthur Flour website, I think the free shipping offer is on the main page.
I don't know if it just local, but Wegman's in Cherry Hill, NJ, has 5 lb. bags of King Arthur Flour on sale for $3.29. Most stores in my area charge $4.99 for King Arthur so this is a good deal and I intend to stock up!
I was wondering if any home bakers here have had success selling their breads from their home kitchen. Were you able to sell to more than friends and family? Farmer's market? Anywhere else? Your trials and errors would be much appreciated!
I was thinking earlier (Mark's post reminded me) that maybe we could have an area for "Items for sale" kinda like a garage sale area as long as it related to baking.
Just a thought and maybe something someone else would be interested in?
Got the Maggie Glazer book "A Blessing of Bread" today, Tue April 15, 2008, new hardcover for $9.99 (CND)! Woot!
