Growing family stand mixer recommendation??
Hello! I have a decent sized family and our Kitchen Aid artisan mixer is just not big enough anymore. I believe it is a 5qt size. We've made the KA work for a long time, but we can just about finish off a decent portion of one batch of bread in one sitting ( each batch makes 2 or 3 loaves).
We make bread fairly often, but I don't believe I could ever bake enough bread for the family to justify a $3000 dollar mixer. Do you have any recommendations? I'm willing, with some persuasion, to spend about $800-$1200 tops.
I'll be honest, i'm considering a 20qt mixer, but have concerns that if i just wanted to make a small batch of something...that it would not be able to handle small quantities. Would i still need too keep the KA mixer too??
Is there anyone else out there with a similar problem?
