Is a Kitchenaid Pro 600 Adequate for Kneading Whole Grain Doughs
The question of which stand mixer has been debated well. If the question of a KA Pro 600 was addressed, apologies for posting again.
The only bread making I have done is Ezekiel Bread from freshly milled flours. It is a batter dough that my wife's Kitchenaid Pro 600 mixer handles well. Now I want to branch out to whole grain yeast breads.
I have been warned about burning up a KA with whole grain flours and advised to get an Electrolux DLX. The KA manual says it will handle 8 cups of whole grain flours.
I don't want the KA to go up in smoke. But most of the warnings I have read involve the decorator mixers. Does the KA Pro 600 do a good job of mixing and kneading, or will I taste a difference with the DLX even if the KA doesn't go up in smoke? Will it handle an 8 cup whole grain dough batch?
