Hello from RigoJancsi


I am a new member and I love this site. Lots of information and new stuff.

I am thinking of buying the Cuisinart 7 quart mixer. I am looking for a sturdy mixer that would knead 12-15 cups of dry flour successfully. I have a post on this topic in the baking equipment section. If you have used this mixer or know someone who has please share your experience kneading a large batch of dough.

Howdy, RigoJancsi,

Nice to meet you. I don't have a good mixer... yet. But I can hope, right? *grin* Santa probably won't be able to bring it this year, but here's to hoping.

Wanted to say hi because I'm new here myself. It's amazing what I've learned since I joined last night. And it's amazing what I've read and haven't learned. *grin* Hey, some things deserve a second reading, right?

I have had a Bosch mixer (universal plus, new style) since September and I routinely make bread with 5 lbs of flour at a time.  I am very VERY happy with my mixer.

I agree with the above statement about the Bosch mixer.  One of the things I like about it is the fact that it does not seem to heat up when mixing a big batch of dough.  Mine is an older model, but it has lasted a long time and I have no complaints.
