On note of mixers, as I said before, I am convinced that hand kneading is why I get the bubbles I get.
Yeah, ....um, forget about that, I didn't know what I was talking about back then.
So look what I got! It's the pro 5, 450 watt, 10 speed one! Now I just have to relearn all the doughs and pay attention to the "mixed for 4 mins at X speed", etc. Then decide if their speed 3 is my speed 3, all that. I see you don't use spiral above speed 2. By the way it came with a spiral hook, whisk, and flat beater. What else will I need? Paddle hook? C-hook? Fill me in!
Great looking unit, you can get all sorts of wild attachments for pasta, coffee grinding, juice, ravioli, you name it! I know you all know this already, lol, but remember I'm "vintage".
Look, it even matches the Senseo coffee maker!
