I'm moving to NYC to a small (but great) loft. My kitchen is going to be much smaller and I need to sell certain things that I don't have room for. First to go, sadly, is my 7 quart Cuisinart, which I love. But, I simply won't have room for it and am going to be able to keep only my smaller KitchenAid. I bought it 6 or so months ago, have posted here about how great I think it is, and it is in perfect condition.
I use all my equipment very gently and carefully. The mixer will include:
1. Mixer body
My old Mixmaster finally bit the bucket. It has made a lot of bread and cookies over the years but it was never what I would consider "Heavy Duty"
So I am looking on ebay for something to replace it. There are several vintage kitchen aid mixers listed. I have read about the problems with the newer kitchen aid mixers not being what the old Hobart built ones were so I am limiting my search to "Hobart Kitchen Aid"
Then I came across a listing for the Kenwood Chef A702 w/450watt motor. I did some research and it looks like a solid built machine.
So, I am pondering a stand mixer. Most likely a KitchenAid. The question, of course, is what model?
KitchenAid® Ultra Power Plus Stand Mixer
Well I just found out about this site and can't believe how much information is here and I can't wait until later tonight after I tuck the kids into bed so I can wander around and check everything out!!!
I am looking for a good quality stand mixer and I would appeciate if you could share your experience about the Cuisinart 7 quart mixer. Even though cuisinart is better known for its excellent food processors, this machine looks very impressive - a powerful 1000 watt motor with a 5 year warranty, 3 year product warranty and a timer. But surprisingly, there aren't many posts about it. Would someone please share experience regarding this mixer?
I'm *considering* not committed to replacing my 12 year old KA SM (4.5 qt but a workhorse -- I think the older ones were more powerful...maybe I'm wrong...).
Hello folks. I'm a bit new here, posting from the UK. I have a stand mixer-related question.
Hi! I'm a relative newbie in the breadmaking arena and am ready to purchase a new stand mixer as I have managed to destroy two other mixers that I was led to believe were top of the line models. I was considering a Viking 7-quart stand mixer (1000 watt motor with metal gear transmission). I would appreciate any positive or negative feedback on this choice option. Thanks in advance as I look forward to hearing from more experienced bakers!
