    I bought me a Kitchenaid stand mixer. Not one of the big fancy ones, this one sold for 299.99 at Kolhs was on sale for 229.99 and a 30 dollar rebate with it and I got an additional 20% off so I got it for 154.99. I thought that was a pretty good buy and something I could afford. I have always wanted one, but didn't want to spend the money and didn't know where I'd put it. Plus I don't do much baking anymore. I have decided to take one side of my counter tops, that I never use, except for junk, and put the gadgets that I don't have room for in my cabinets but will use on it. So I will have Ninja cooking system, Vitamix, Food saver and mixer on it and if room my big George Foreman. I am so excited and wanted to make something when I got back from Lexington, KY today but was tired we made the trip from start to finish in just shy of 12 hours, but being gone from home that long and riding for 8 hours I didn't feel like it. I have to make 10 batches of brownies between Wednesday and Thursday so it will get used a lot this week.

    I have had mine for perhaps 20 years, and it just keeps chugging along. I think mine is the same model, but cost me 175 or so when I bought it, so you got a great deal. I used to make bread with it before I bought the bread machine. Now it's more brownies, marshmallows, other things.

    Oh congrads Jackie on a great machine AND a great deal. You are going to love it, it's the one machine that never gets put away in my kitchen as I find I use it all the time. When I got it I thought I'd be using it for bread dough and cakes - but there are so many others.

    Mine is over 10 years old now and still going strong - I've been panting over the newer models that have the raise up arm (mine just goes up, not swing back) but this one works so well I just cannot justify it.

    You are going to love it Jacqueline. I got mine a few years back for making bread. I could no longer keep up with making bread by hand because my shoulder was giving out from working as a cook. I was up to making 12 loaves by hand at a time. (The problem with being a height-challenged cook, everything is hyper-extending my shoulder). I now use my mixer to make the 12 loaves for me. I bought the ProfessionalHD from Costco as it was the biggest mixer I could afford. I am thinking of upgrading as the dough is just a bit too much of a strain on the mixer as it goes over 6 lbs. The screws holding the head tend to come loose now, so I am debating to get lock-tight for the screws and still upgrade, or just keep it.

    Oh tasb, if anyone deserves the biggest and best when it comes to bread making it's you. Someday I want to come and just stand in your kitchen and watch how you do it icon_cool.gif

    Bonnie, I am going with you when you go to tasb's place to watch her cook. Putting that on my bucket list.

    Since I have not been able to sleep tonight I went back to Kohl's online to order me the cover for my mixer, since I had some Kohl's cash. I also picked up the grinder and slicer while there. I don't care enough for pasta to buy it and being it is just me it is much easier to just buy it, but I think I can really get my money out of the grinder. I can buy roasts on sell and make my own ground beef, pork, lamb, bison, chicken too, but not out of a roast. icon_smile.gif I actually see using it for this to be my main use. I don't bake that often although in the last two days I have made 8 pans of brownies, too bad you mix them by hand.

    I use my mixer even when it's by hand - just use the slowest speed - works great. I've also bought the meat grinder attachement but haven't used it yet need to get it out and give it a try

    I've used the grinder attachment to make sausages. Love controlling the ingredients, especially sodium.

    I bought the set that has the slicer, shredder, grinder, food strainer. Thinking I would use the grinder, slicer and shredder the most. Well hubby quit hunting so I had nothing to grind. I wasn't too pleased with the shredder and slicer. But I love the strainer, I use it all the time in canning season, especially for making nectar from peaches and apricots, and when making jellied cranberry sauce.

    You know when I bought my grinder I'd looked at that set but didn't buy it and have always regretted that.

    katie, doesn't the KA go under both categories, heavy and used most. icon_lol.gif

    Bonnie, I may make a lot of bread at one time, but I am kinda boring, I only make 2 kinds of bread. No straying from these 2 recipes as my family isn't that adventurous. Sometime I am down to making only the white bread if I don't feel like doing 2 kinds.
