KA getting tired. Dedicated bread?
My humble KA 4.5 is getting tired. I'm astounded it's lasted these many years given how much abuse I've given it. I'd hope to let it retire to the green pastures of genoise batter or meringues, but I hope I have something left in the life of the machine before it dies completely.
So, some point coming up I'll need a dedicated dough machine. I salivate at a Famag spiral or Santos fork mixer but can't justify it at least for now. So likely looking for a good, strong planetary. I've only used KA all my life, so know very little about other makes. I follow Lutz Geissler alot, and i know he's very fond of his Kenwoods, Cooking Chef and Titanium.
Up to maybe $700.
