I'm contemplating taking the plunge and buying a Kitchenaid stand mixer (never been that much of a baker, but I'm getting there). At my local WalMart, they have a Kitchenaid for $150, and a Kitchenaid Classic for $199. I cannot see any difference in the two, except the $150 one does not have the dough hook or the whisk attachment, just the paddle. I know I'm going to want a dough hook, as the big thing I want the mixer for is bread. Can anyone enlighten me as to the differences in these two machines? It appears I can order a dough hook on Amazon for $15 or so.
