Is the cuisinart dough hook like the KA C-hook?
From what I have read the C-hook isnt that good compared to the spiral hook, and will probably be the deciding factor on which mixer I buy. I have read alot about the dough riding up the C-hook.
Cuisinart mixer-$250- come with small food processor
KA pro 600- $320- comes with ice cream maker (will never be used) but might get a price match and pasta attachments for $10 more somewhere else.
Not interested in other mixers, just looking for the quality of the hooks.
