back to manual

Well...that Cheftronic stand mixer shit the bed on the sixth batch of dough.  Thanks to Amazon Prime, I am sending it back for a full refund.  Going to stick to hand mixing for now...but I have my eye on this one.  I think I will wait until I see some return on this venture before I invest in any more equipment.  I also need to refurbish my old large solar oven which can handle 18 one quart dutch ovens at a time.  74,90,44,0,B

That is a very popular one. I do not know how well it holds up. I think it is probably for light home use.

I have a Kitchen Aid 8Qt. commercial model that has been through lots of bread dough with no problems. Quite a bit more money, $550 on WebstaurantStore.com

All the wannabes out there for buying kitchenAid stand mixers. They are aging, and that mixer just have your name on it.
If you see a Pro series give it serious thought to buy. Doesn’t overheat, can run for an extremely long time. I looked at many brands and this was my choice.

I bought a Sunbeam bread machine on Amazon for about $160. Whether or not you use it to bake the bread (which I presume you will not) it makes great dough. Bread dough, pizza dough, any dough. Kneads it for you, times the rises for you and beeps when its ready for you. Putting in the ingredients takes about 5 minutes normally, then push the button and go away, let it to all .... then bake! Voila....

I've had my Kitchen Aid for 35 years and many bread loaves ago, as well as double batches of cookies, too-many-to-count baked items and a bunch of other stuff using the purchased attachments. You cannot go wrong with a Kitchen Aid. My friend is still using her grandmother's old Kitchen Aid. One more thing: All the KA attachments work with all the KA's, no matter the age of the mixer.

My wife has never heard the phrase "shit the bed" but she does say that a mixer for dough
needs to be heavy duty...
