Default Mixer is dying...

My ancient Braun mixer is at the end of it's life so I started looking for a new mixer for dough.

Looks like the kitchenaid is off the list.

The SP5 looks like a great machine but I don't use the machine enough to justify it at the moment. Thanks for the great write up Jim! http://www.fornobravo.com/forum/f18/mixers-596.html (Mixers)

The Globe is a planetary mixer and pricey.

Bosch, not so sure.

I am leaning towards the Electrolux, glad to see the FB store will carry it soon.

So my question is between the Bosch and Electrolux. Has anyone used both? Looking for pro's and con's if any. Can you mix small batches in the Electrolux?

Thanks!!

Loren

I can relate. :-)

I just heard that the Electrolux is going through the UL gauntlet, and delivery might slip into Oct/Nov. More to come on that.

Still, I've decided to stick it out. I'm going to run my brutal KA until the day the Electrolux arrives. I even used it today -- making banana bread. Gotta do something with those brown bananas. But that noise.....

I thought I saw a thread a couple of weeks ago that said KA is going back to metal gears so all is good.

James,

Will you stock the Electrolux at the Windsor location? I pass through that area occasionally. I would also like to pick up some of the bake ware. Not sure if you stock it there since I have never been to the store.

I also read the release date would be Novemberish... Mixing by hand will help me appreciate the new mixer that much more whenever it arrives!

Les,

Do you have any other information on that? Just curious...

We will be able to stock in the Windsor showroom, or drop ship to you from Electrolux. We have fun stuff you can see and touch in the showroom -- just call ahead to book a time to make sure we're there. Hey, we're a flexible bunch.

When was the date that KA switched to metal gears? My KA Pro 600 is 2 1/2 years old.

I'm feeling pre-upgrade.

No worries James - you are going to carry a better product.
