If I could buy the mixer I want, it would be one of those large chunky ugly white professional things which holds about 8 kg of dough, and weighs about a ton. I've seen them on little wheels, so I would just roll it out of the way when not in use and roll it into the middle of the floor on bake days. And maybe I'd sew a little slip cover for it (with twirly bits on).

Of course you would Frances.... Of course!



But I bet it would be pretty!

I like the Zwei-Arm Knetmaschine:



I'd like to see a video of that monster in action!

Since it holds 99 pounds of dough, I think I'd need a little bigger oven than my thirty-six incher.

I thought I would bring this thread back to life. While waiting for the Electrolux to be available (again) in the U.S., I decided to move my KA mixer permanently to the counter -- and I can happily report that so far, it's been a great choice. Having the mixer sitting there, waiting to be used, have motivated me to make a lot more bread. Whole wheat loaves for toast and school lunch boxes (sorry Frances), focacccia, baguettes, banana bread, etc., and I'm on a roll. I'm even using it for basic things like whipping cream. Plus, it's easier to clean when it is just sitting there; next to the espresso machine.

Thanks for the input on this one -- this was very helpful.

Though this leads to a new question -- how are you storing your bread? I think I am going to post a new poll.
James

I'm with Telehort. My DLX also sits in the corner on the counter. The cool part is it is shrouded under the KA fabric cover. My only regret is I am unable to sew twirly bits with any great success. Same footprint more or less.
Small doughs (which I rarely mix) can be done with the roller, but I mainly use the dough hook.

Just a quick picture I want to share with you...


And my question is: Where exactly would you store a mixer on this counter???

But I'm glad it works for you, James. Baking more bread is always a good thing.

Hm. I don't think I could find any room on that counter either. Do you sleep with it?

My cabinet doors used to look like that too- but it's been a long time since I had that kind of art to decorate with.

Here's hoping that your kids will never get the idea that my twins had once- copying a commercial they'd seen in which a hose was used indoors... it totally ruined some of my son's best artwork. And my day. (and few other things I would rather not think about, even from the distance of nearly 12 years...)

On the ceiling?

since the KitchenAid/CuisinArt/whatever is a beautiful AND useful tool, leave it out! As long as you have the space, it will encourage you to use it more.

and I freeze my bread after it's fully cooled on the counter or finished it's final rise. either way, they only need a bit of oven and defrost time to get ready for dinner.
