Old Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer
I am very new here and have never owned a stand mixer in my life. I just turned 46 about a week ago. When I was probably 10 or 12 years old my mother bought a Kitchen Aid stand mixer. I may have been even younger. All I know is that she had this thing forever and it got quite the workout. She baked constantly and did so quite well.
A few days before my birthday this year my mother passed away. She was 82. My father asked if there was anything of my mother's that I wanted. Without hesitation, I replied, "I would really like to have mom's Kitchen Aid."
My question is this: This mixer is over thirty years old. Is there any maintenance I should do on this mixer prior to really putting it back into use. It did sit idle for the last several months as my mother was unable to use it. Any words of wisdom will be appreciated.
I am looking forward to using the mixer and thinking of my mother every time.
