YAY!! I got my stand mixer.. I have opted out of getting a bread machine since this particular model will mix the dough up and everything for me!! I can make all kinds of breads and crusts and more!! I am so excited! I made my first batch of wedding cookies with it tonight. THIS is the one I ended up getting.
It is the 575-watts, Bowl-lift, design 6-quart professional model. I wanted to make sure I got the one with the metal gears since I would be using it a lot for doughs.
Anyways, Just thought I would share :)
