mixing it up?
- Fast Ed From Brazil
I'm in the market for a new mixer with a powerful motor. Should I be looking at Kitchen Aid mixers, or is there another brand I should be out scouting for instead?
I have always used Kitchenaid, and have been more than satisfied. But if you are in the market for a mixer you should also look at Kenwood, a British brand (not Sears). I have heard very good things about their mixers. Also, some of the speciality kitchen equipment catalogs have recently featured a heavy duty Swedish mixer that looks like it has some nice features.
My parents have a Bosch mixer older than I am (22). It still runs beautifully. At the time, the Bosch sales rep showed them a simple side-by-side comparison with bread dough. The Bosch mixer was still going quite strong even after the strongest Kitchenaid mixer stalled out. They are pretty pricey (and extremely hard to find) but it's like good cookware- once you have one, you will *never* have to replace it.
I think you might get more reponse on this topic if you took it to the Non-Food board. That said, I think Kitchen Aids look really cool (and I've never had a problem with mine, and I work it pretty hard).
