Bosch Universal vs Ankarsrum
I'm looking for a quality mixer, mostly for bread, but would like to be able to use it for all my baking. I currently have an older KA (K5SS), one made by Hobart, but it isn't much use for making bread, especially whole wheat, with only 300 watts of power, and then only one or two loaves at a time. I also don't like the overhead motor which makes it hard to add ingredients or check mixing progress.
I'm considering either the Bosch Universal or the Ankarsrum. I hear comments about them not being good for small batches and/or for cookies, etc. I will often make several loaves of bread at a time, but will sometimes make one or two specialty loaves (ie: Rye, sweet bread, etc). I also do a lot of other baking, especially during the holidays.
Before I spend $400-700, I'm trying to do as much research as I can. I'd appreciate all suggestions, input and experiences from you all, pros and cons, etc. Thanks.
