    After a long and difficult battle with a cheesecake I made on Friday, I decided to add a new weapon to my arsenal. Nothing will stand in my way!

    I've wanted that badboy for years and years, congratulations!

    (Not necessarily that model number, but a top shelf pro Kitchenaid stand mixer in Stealth Grey)

    I've had a Kitchenaid mixer like that for over twenty years. They are very well made and strong.

    Over the years, though, I have seen a mixer I think I would like better on shows I watch on FoodTV. It is made by Delonghi. It sells in 2 different motor sizes, I have found it on eBay stores for around $350. The thing I like about it, is the attachments spin (obviously}, but the head rotates as well so you get the whipping, and circulating around the bowl, so you don't have to stir.

    A million yrs ago I bought my mother a Hobart. I'd worked in restaurants and had seen how useful they were. That Hobart will probably outlive the human race. Build like a fuggin' tank.

    I have an Artisan that is more than adequate for my needs (single batch of cookies). Before you drop all that cash, make sure you aren't buying more than you need. Saving that $100 will let you get a meat grinder or pasta roller attachment!

    Yeah but some day I'm going to be making bread and the plastic gears inside are going to strip and/or 325W just won't cut it! I'd rather buy this thing once, and never have to worry about it again when I have big jobs to tackle!

    Besides, I want to show any ladies that come over how "serious" I am when it comes to cooking!!
