My kitchenaid mixer died. I'm thinking about buying a Globe SP5, Any thoughts?
Put "Globe SP5" in the search box and see what comes up. There are some prior comments there.
Then get this -- a dedicated bread mixer (spiral type) used in professional labs -- not an "all-purpose" planetary mixer:
This is a little more than twice the price of the one you're looking at, but you'll never have to buy another one. I've used mine heavily and owned it for 9 years, and all that's been replaced is a 2-dollar fuse. So is a 400-600 dollar planetary mixer a bargain if it burns out in 5 years and doesn't mix dough very well?
At least -- that was MY rationalization when I ordered this. But I've never regretted getting it.
