Is there not one mixer that can do it all and for less than $600??
My Kitchenaid Pro 600 isn't totally dead, but when I bake bread, it burns out real easily and can only kneed for 30 seconds, so it's on it's way out. I've been reading posts on here for days, but there is no one clear winner. The KA is good for cakes, cookies, but not bread dough. Bosch- not good w/small quantities. DLX- high mainentance, user has to watch constantly and move the arm, plus they just raised prices on DLX to $750. That's crazy money! The Globe 8 or 10Q seems perfect, but costs over 1K.
So I have no clue what to do. The Globe would be perfect but it's too pricey. The DLX seems complicated and pricey at $750 (at that money i'd like to turn it on and walk away like with KA). Also I have a small kitchen, so I can't have 2 mixers, I really need one that can handle everything including bread.
What do you guys suggest??? I really don't want to go over $600. Please advise...........
