    Default Heavy metal

    For you bakers out there what machines do you use to mix and knead the dough? What are your experiences with machines you have used and would you recommend them?

    I have an old westbend that I still like. My mom still shames me for not using my hands...I have to admit, I can't get her quality with a damn machine!

    We have the Kitchenaid also. Not sure but I think it is the Pro 500 lift stand model.
    I like the paddle and dough hook for baking, although I do most of the kneading by hand.

    I used to have a viking which I don't recommend. Right now I have a Bosch Universal Plus however it's not good for small batches and is a real pain to clean. There is a swedish machine the Ankarsrum which is supposed to be the cats meow. When I get around to knocking over the next bank I'm gonna buy the Hausler which is a dedicated bread kneader/mixer.

    The Hobart N50 is probably the ideal machine as long as you don't make really stiff dough like bagel dough and 5 quarts is enough for you.

    I suppose it's shameful to have a Cuisonart Bread machine... So forget I even mentioned it.

    I play with an old Kitchen Aid. Used to knead by hand all the time but like the convenience of the machine. Perfect for one or two batches of bread (recipe later in The Recipe Box for one loaf of challah).

    And thanks, big for setting up the new sections.

    I still use the Kitchen-aide - (tilt, not lift)
    Some of my clients have the Ankarsrum in their test kitchens - like them - but they mostly do Pastry, Cakes, will have to ask them if they have done dough.
    How big a batch and what are you making?

    I was making a batch of Gingerbread during the Holidays, a recipe that the SWMBO asked me to try.
    It was enough to load the Kitchen-aide to that "this does not sound good" level.
    And I thought about that Ankarsrum...
