Good link. I've spoken with Jeff, and he's a real enthusiast -- he wants to (maybe already has) go pro. I have to take a look at his video again.

I run mine at the "next to slowest" speed with dough hooks.

Mine made that whining noise on #2. Next to the lowest. I mix the dough and water on 1, wait 20 minutes, then mix on #2.

Wheeeeeeeee!

Mine no longer likes to shut off thanks to so much dough making...have to unplug it so that it doesn't eat my hand when I try to remove the bowl and dough hook...scary sometimes when I forget...it ate a spatula that way once...spent 20 minutes making sure all the splinters were out of the dough

We had a ton of Green points and traded them in on a KitchenAid Mixer with the metal gears.

I just ran some dough through it and it sounded good - but a little loud. I looked for the video that started this thread so I could compare, but alas, it's gone.

So far, the mixer is working great. But I'm having separation anxiety from the bread machine we've been using for dough making for so long....

Christo,

After a year or so, I'm still very happy with my (metal gearbox) KA. Mine is also a bit loud.

Mine is not only loud, it gets pretty hot too. The manual says that's normal. I guess as long as it doesn't start smoking ....

Mine is working perfectly. In regard to noise, I think I went to one too many Black Sabbath concerts
