Not sure if this is the right place to post this. What kind of stand mixer does everyone use to make their buttercream icing, ect ? My Kitchen Aid stand mixer just broke! It's a red, 5 quart mixer. I paid over $300 for it on amazon. It's not even 3 years old & it's already broke. I wasn't paying attention (in a rush trying to make some buttercream) & forgot to lock the bowl in... the bowl started spinning around & then before I knew it, the paddle wouldn't spin anymore. It's like jammed or something. The motor sounds like it's running, but it won't spin. Anyone ever have this problem? Can I hire someone to fix it (if it can be fixed)? I hate to just throw it away. I'm going to have to buy a new one in the mean time because I have cakes to make this week. I saw a Hamilton Beach one at WalMart for only $129, I may get that one since it is cheaper & rated good.
