Happy DLX owner
I just wanted to thank everyone on this forum for all their time and input. I recently bought a DLX and took a long time deciding if I wanted a DLX or a Bosch. After reading all the forum posts on both of those mixers as well as all the info on KA and other mixers I eventually went with the DLX and am EXTREMELY happy. I had a 5 qt KA that I burned up about 2 yrs ago. I replaced it with a 6 qt KA and was happy with it until I started making more whole grain bread and using fresh ground flour. I was just so concerned I would burn it up. The DLX is awesome. I had heard about the learning curve but didn't really have much of a problem. It is totally different from anything I have ever used but it is simple enough. It also makes great bread and is very quiet. I was shocked at how quiet it was. And the amount of bread you can make is insane. I would never have even thought to double a 3-4 lb whole wheat recipe in my KA. It had a hard enough time with just the 3-4 lbs. And the results are impressive. So anyway, I ramble. I am just very happy with my DLX and thank you to everyone who shared their experiences here and helped in my decision making.
