I just finished mixing up my first batch of dough. All I have to say is wow! This machine is incredible. I was a bit concerned about the clean up because the bowl in not removeable, but it's a breeze & took only a couple of minutes. There wasn't any dough stuck to the bowl or the hook. This is the first time that I have made dough in a mixer without finishing with a hand knead. It was perfect right out of the mixer. The dough pictured below was mixed for approx 6 minutes.
