Poll #502977 KitchenAid

I don't bake a lot, so I've been happy using my ancient Sunbeam Mixmaster (a wedding present to my parents). Lately, however, the mixer has been showing signs of age (funny noises). On the food porn community there was a post saying that Amazon was promoting KitchenAids for $125 with promo till May 31. It comes in white only. Should I get over my reverse snobbery ("I don't have a fancy mixer") and go for it?

Of course, you idiot

At about $100 for a fully loaded (if low end) one, I'm goin' for it.

I only wish I had been organized enough to tell my parents about it ... my birthday is right around the corner.

It's silly to not use a tool because people who happen to be prats use it. Tools just help you do the work. Besides, the Kitchenaid is not terribly fancy.

Just as a warning: if you're going to knead bread dough with it, get the largest motor you can.

Heh. I had been thinking it, but this one is not one of the Monster Motors. I will probably stick to confining my breadmaking to foccacia and soft rolls (which should be less crazy on the motor, nu?). I mostly use my mixer for cookie dough.

Love the Rosie icon!

You are worth the Big Motor. I say go the full monty and don't worry about the price. You'll be very happy with a studly kitchen gizmo and will pet it when you walk by it.

Do make sure to donate the old one to Goodwill when you get the new one, else you will feel Mixed Loyalties to your kitchen appliances, which is a confusing feeling (she said with the old microwave sitting in the garage awaiting disposal.)
