Best stand mixer in $200-300 range

Hi, I have been reading and learning since joining a few months ago. Now I have a question for you folks:

My wife's father has offered to buy her a stand mixer in the $200-300 price range. I realize that this is pretty low on the scale, especially if we're talking about kneading much dough. Still, she wants to know what is the best value, in you opinions, within those limits. If you can please explain your reasoning, it would help us. Thanks very much for your help.

By the way, he insists on buying new and probably online as he doesn't get around much anymore.

Hints on finding the right mill

November 3, 2009 - 1:34pm -- violet

I know there are a number of excellent mills for different applications, so I hope I get this detailed enough to really pinpoint which will work best for me. Thanks in advance for your advice!


I'm looking for a mill that can accomplish the following;


can mill coarse or very fine flours (dry grains) for baking, pasta, hot cereal, pastries, gravies, cakes, breads, etc.


does not heat the flour (over 120 farenheit)
