Stand mixer recommendations?
I know there's a decent amount of discussion over this on the hotline, but I just want to see if anyone else has any ideas. I'm getting a mixer (likely a KitchenAid) and can't decide what model would be best. The price differential between a pro lift-bowl really isn't that different from the normal tilt-head, and I've heard that the pros are better for bread doughs. I definitely will be using it for bread, but not exclusively. Are there any of the newer models I should actively avoid for quality issues? What's your preferred model?
