Cuisinart 7 qt and Small Batches
Just bought this machine to replace a KA that died. (I wanted the DLX, but everyone was out of stock and I needed something soon.) Anyway, I did a small, 1 baguette batch of dough and wasn't impressed. The hook never really caught the dough and the outside edge of the hook just tugged at the dough ball stuck to the side of the bowl, moving it just a bit with every pass. There was no turning the dough on top of itself like I got with the KA. However, the dough seemed to have a fair bit of strengh at the end of the mix and I've got it fermenting now. Is this normal with small batches on the Cuisinart?
