I've been toying with the idea of saving up for a Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer. I love baking way more than cooking, so I know it would definitely be used, but is it worth it? Right now I have a hand-held mixer that has worked fine for the past 4 years, but occasionally gets a little smelly if I work it too hard. :)
I found factory reconditioned ones by Kitchen Aid on Amazon fo $165. All I have heard of is the Kitchen Aid brand, but is there another one out there that seems to work fine also? It's not like I'm starting my own bakery, so I was wondering if the Kitchen Aid one would be too much power.
Just curious about your opinions if you have one.
