KitchenAid/Hobart stand mixer
KitchenAid Model K5-A
So I've been haunting this site for a while now basically just trying to get the guts up to actually get some baking done. I don't do well with failure(My pretzels were good but ugly!). I've been living overseas for a while and when I got back I realized that I have a stand mixer that's been sitting in my long-term storage for about 7 years. I was going to just take it to the local swap meet to get rid of it when I decided to do some research on what it was that I actually had. It looks like it's worth keeping! At least that's what I've gleaned from the other posts I've read. When it was first given to me by my MIL I thought it was a waste since it didn't come with anything. I never really knew where to start looking things up for mixers that were so old. Now that I know what to look for I'm still stumped! I know what it is, the motor runs when I turn it on, I know how to search, but really, it's kinda hard to find the accessories. Or is it? Whenever I type in the model number it comes up with modern KA accessories. Are these even going to fit? I don't want to get my hopes up and order this stuff just to get it here and find out that it doesn't work like it should. I've never had a stand mixer so I wouldn't even know how the things are supposed to fit. OK, I feel like I'm starting to whine now. Time to stop. I would really appreciate any help y'all could give me. Thanks!
