Electrolux mixer-- used 450 watt or new 600 watt?
My older kitchenaid pro 500 is dying (big surprise) and since I'm baking (make that was baking) large batches of bread, pretzels, pizza dough, etc on a regular basis to feed my own darling teeming horde I've been looking to replace it with something that will last me until they've all left home. I'm pretty decided on the electrolux (correct me please if this is a bad idea).
My question is this: I can buy a lightly used, older 450 watt model for about $400. I can buy a new, 600 watt model for $600. What, if any, are the advantages of a higher wattage model? Is it worth the extra $200 to get a new model with the accompanying several year warranty?
I welcome any and all advice as I dive into your world!
