I have owned this exact KitchenAid stand mixer for 15 years and have made multitudes of things from bread, chocolate chip cookies to pizza crust.
What I love about this mixer, is the ability to add attachments which turn the mixer into a juicer, meat grinder, pasta maker, or a cheese grater.
I realize these stand mixers are an investment, however, keep a lookout for sales on these (I will too and post them when I see them). There are often great deals on these kitchen workhorses.
In my opinion, KitchenAid stand mixers have no rivals. They are simply the best!
