Ok, so Im gathering i should definitely get a larger mixer, not two of the same.

Also, is the 7 qt mixer considered "commercial" ? under my cottage food law we are not to allowed to have commercial equipment

I was looking at a refurbished KA 7 qt mixer today (candy apple red -- swoon). Anyway, Kitchenaid markets their 7 quart mixer as the largest "residential" mixer.

Awesome! So yeah I'm thinking that's what I'm going to get...

Six, do you have multiple mixers as well?

Liz, thanks for the price and the tip about the coupon! That's definitely in my range, I've saved quite a bit, looking to really invest, bump up to the next level so to speak.

Yes, this is the one I got.  The only differences between the 7 quart Pro's and the 7 quart Commercial models are that the Pro's come in 4 colors, and the Commercial has an orange commercial cord and is NSF rated.

 

The internal parts are identical.

Soon, very soon I will have multiple mixers!! icon_lol.gif I currently have a smaller 4.5 qt KA - It's way too small, so I've been looking at the refurbished models. I love the 7 qt red one - thanks liz at sugar for the info on the difference between the pro and commercial - I was wondering what the difference was!

I also want cake stands - lots and lots of cake stands...and an Agbay...

I feel you on the cake stands lol!! I'm trying not to get too many, the agbay you will love! I fought with that Wilton one for about a year then I just did it with a knife. I'm really looking forward to getting a larger mixer, or at least another one! It's definitely time. I've always been curious as to how others have managed having two

LOL...I was joking about the fell off the truck part. ost of the ones he sells are priced close to Amazon but occasionally he will throw one out starting at $.99. I just gotreally lucky

Having a kitchen aid and that mixer as a SECOND mixer, what would you personally take? I don't make breads or anything that's terribly tough on a mixer. Not sure I understand

Sorry, I was just wondering if you could choose between that one and a KA which one would you choose, keeping in mind I don't make large batches of breads, or things that don't really work you mixer. I saw in one of your earlier posts though that you said you'd rather the KA!

Oh if I had the money at the time I would have purchased the KA based solely on the reputation. This one has been totally reliable but not having had any issues I cannot speak as to what it would take to get it fixed, etc.... Given that $$ were not an issue I would still go with the KA, but at the time it was. I just posted my experience for anyone who may be a home baker (non pro) or just starting out at baking and not have the money for a KA and wanted to see if baking is something they would stick to. That being said I would not have paid over $200 for it from Amazon (not that it did not turn out to be worth it, but solely because if I was going to spend that kind of $$ I would have just saved more and got the KA) But being that I was able to get a deal for $70 I am very pleased with my choice. I keep trying to get my daughter to get a Hobart for the restaurant but she says she doesn't need anything that big thumbsdown.gif
