    Question Heavy duty stand mixer reccomendations?

    I will soon be in the market for a new stand mixer. My current Oster is about to take it's last mix. I have been making bread dough (not very stiff) and it has been getting extremely hot and oil has been leaking out of the motor onto the dough hook ends that stick up in the body. (not on the food) :verysad: Anybody have any thoughts on what the best heavy duty stand mixer for my use would be? It needs to be able to stand up to making dough without getting all stupid on me. Thanks!

    We have a KitchenAid. I've never seen it get in a bind mixing anything.

    I'd go with the Kitchenaid. That's the brand most used in professional bakeries. I have an Oster myself (don't use it all that much) I'm just waiting (praying) for it to die so I can justify getting a Kitchenaid...;)

    Also with Kitchenaid, they are equipped to handle lots of accessories which looks like fun - pasta makers, meat grinders, etc.

    My mom had a kitchenade for about 40 years LOL.
    I have one now also. Your posts reminded me that I needed to call them because mine is leaking oil. I was very impressed with their customer service on the phone. I don't use mine that often and they said the oil leaking was because it was not used and that it was not a problem. He said that a unit can lose up to 1/4 cup before needing to be serviced and said the best thing to do is turn it on at least once a month if you are not using it to run the oil through the motor and then it won't leak.
    They are great units, very heavy and sturdy.

    I have had this Sunbeam Mixmaster for over thirty years, and, I swear it is like a tank! To date, it has never backed down from any dough or mix I have stuffed into the bowl. Now, sometimes, it "walks a bit" on the counter but that is when I try to do double batches, and, I shouldn't. Sure have gotten my money from it over the years.

    I'd have to say KitchenAid as well!! My mom uses hers for breads quite frequently and she has never once complained about there being any problems.

    That's a lot of votes for Kitchen Aid...I guess now it comes down to what model is best and a very good deal. Thanks guys!!!


    Oh, and has anyone noticed that appliances made a while ago seem to hold up better than the stuff made today?

    I meant 'things' in general....I have found that Kitchen Aid products have continued to keep their quality in manufacturing. That's why they cost $$$$, they're quality and last. ;) Besides, you can find a bells and whistle one for about half that $$.

    Yeppers......folks would be shocked at what I personally prefer to cook and bake with in my kitchen! But I am "old southern stock" meaning, we can make cornbread on a garden hoe over a camp fire! A lot of my gadgets and cookware date back to my Grandmother, over one hundred years old, and, still going strong! Admittedly, there are so many wonderful new companies with awesome products, I would be hardpressed to choose. Guess you can't teach this old mare new tricks in her kitchen!
