    The wife and I have been considering a Kitchenaid mixer for years.
    We've always kneaded our dough by hand since we dont often bake homemade bread.
    We're now considering getting the Kitchenaid for the bread kneading and the meat grinding/sausage making capabilities.

    Anyone have any insight or experience with the Kitchenaid?

    At $350 bucks I'd like to know how it performs before buying.

    Ad the fact that we'll soon be moving to the boonies where a quick trip to the store for a loaf of bread or ground meat will soon become a chore.

    I have never tried it for kneading bread, but I absolutely love my sister's for everything I've done with it, and I desperately want one myself. I hear from everyone I respect in the area of serious cooking that it's worth every penny.

    I've heard nothing but good things about these units.
    It sounds like it'll fill our baking needs without a problem but I'm more concerned about it fulfilling our meat grinding/sausage making needs.
    The reason we're interested is the attachments you can purchase.
    Meat grinder/sausage maker,pasta maker,ravioli maker,chopper grater.
    It appears to be able to fill a lot of needs.
    Just curious if it would be better to buy individual products to perform these tasks.

    I love my Kitchenaid ! I've had for about thirty years and use it once or twice a week. It has a nice range of speeds and is heavy so it doesn't travel across the counter when you put it on high. The kneading hook works fine, so does the meat grinder. I highly recommend it. It is worth the money.

    I suggest a freezer if you're that far out of the way. If you've got the $$ left, get the KitchenAid.

    Money isnt an issue.
    Fresh bread and custom ground meats are the issue.
    Making my own Italian sausage,fennel sausage,breakfast sausage,meatballs,meatloaf,burgers and of course Kolaches and bread.

    He had the mixer but was too cheap to buy the accessories! I did not like the meat grinder so I gave that away!
