Buying a pre-owned mixer
I did it. I killed my mixer after really, not that many doughs. I make very heavy dough though...
Anyway, I'm on my way to opening a home bakery and I am caught between two states of mind.
Buy a Kitchen Aid and replace as necessary.
Invest in a commercial mixer.
There is no way I can afford a new commercial mixer so I've been looking at used. This is new territory for me (commercial equipment) and I'm not sure if its stupid to buy used equipment. I suppose I wont *really* know its wear and tear.
Is this a bad idea? What kinds of questions do I need to ask? What do I need to look for?
