Mixer advice needed
Hello wizards of TFL,
My old and trusty KitchenAid died tonight and I am trying to figure out what mixer to buy next. I would like for the new mixer to have the capacity to mix/knead dough for a minimum of 4 one-pound loaves at a time (could not do that in my old mixer), but also to mix smaller batches of dough for things like cookies. Being able to mix even more dough would be a plus. I have heard good things about KitchenAid Professional and would love to have the feedback of those who use it. I would also appreciate any advice on alternative mixers. I would consider spending on a pricier mixer for homebakers, or even on a professional mixer, but am wondering if I would still need a smaller mixer for smaller amounts of dough.
