I have a old Braun that my Mom bought for me many years ago, 15+ and really like it. That Pro Line KA looks awsome. I love my KA Pro 600 stand mixer.
Making great pizza and learning new things everyday.

Check out Amazon. I just got the 12 cup KA for about 150. Love it. Tried the comparable Cuisimart and took it back. KA is way better and well rated by Consumer Reports and Americas Test Kitchen.

I have a 14-year old Cusinart 14-cup food processor that I've expected to break-down for a while, but it just keeps taking whatever I throw at it. Lately I've been using it for small batches (500g flour) and it has been turning out spectacular doughs - some better than my fork mixer. Here is a pie we just had for lunch today using the Cuisinart:

(Today was clean out the cheese box day. The yellow cheese is some cheddar I had put in the cold smoker for a while - killer for grilled-cheese sandwiches - not so much for pizza. Never again)

  Jackitup I too love amozon.com. I致e bought many things from them. I think I値l probably go with the KA. I値l order it Monday and let you know how it is. From your avatar you appear to be hunter, as I am also, as soon as I figure out how to scan my photos from my trip to Africa (didn稚 have a digital camera at the time) I値l post a couple. By the way nice buck!

  Guys, a 14 & 15 year old food processor!  :o That痴 out of control; you sure got your monies worth out of that one.  

  BILL/SFNM I agree completely on the cheddar  cheese

I had an old Waring 8 cup food processor that just died last year, I think I bought it on a closeout deal at a gas station in 1980-82. That thing handled anything I threw at it. If the same one was still out there I'd snap it up in a minute. I think I almost shed a tear when I put it in the trash. If this KA is 1/2 as good over time, I'll be damned happy.
