I've always made by dough by hand but this forum inspired me to break down and try a mixer. Today I bought a used Kitchenaid K5SS. I am fairly sure it's 5 quarts and 325 watts. It came with the splash guard, dough hook, whisk, and some other attachment (shown) for a use unknown to me. Anyway, I paid $100 on Craigslist. I think I got a pretty good deal because if I decide mechanical mixing is not for me, I could probably sell it and get most of that amount back. Has anyone had a particularly good or bad experience with this model? Any tips? I can't wait to get her humming this weekend.
