    What mixer should I buy?

    I'm looking for a standing mixer to assist with mainly making pies and cookies.  Which mixer do you recommend I purchase?

    I did some research and thought I'd publish the answer just in case someone else is looking for a mixer with a stand.  I went with the Kitchen Aid Artisan mixer.  It's a nice mixer with stir speed plus speed settings 1-10 and comes with three types of beaters.  The bowl locks in place easily and the mixer head locks as well.  The one downside is it is large, but it is also powerful.

    I have the professional grade Kitchenaid and have used many, many times the home grade Kitchenaids. It is absolutely my favorite stand mixer. I've used a few Hamilton Beaches, Cuisinarts, etc, but found the Kitchenaids to be the sturdiest and easiest to use. I do a lot of baking, often times making 20-30 dozen cookies at a time. The Kitchenaid mixers can easily handle a doubled recipe of chocolate chip or gingerbread! I've burned a couple other brands up trying that smile The Kitchenaids come with about 3 different attachments (paddle for cookies, whisk for meringues and such, or a hook for stiff doughs like bread). You can also buy numerous other attachments and tools making it more than a uni-tasker! I have the pasta roller, ice cream maker and grinder. Love them! As far as pies go, if you're looking to make crust in a mixer, I'm not sure I totally recommend that. I've had bad luck with that. I like to use the plastic blade in my food processor, though. Anyway, hope this helps a bit. smile

    For pie crust, I use my Kitchen Aid food processor. I have done double batches of dough for a pie crust and it turned our great!

    hi Paul,
      to make pie and cookie, i guess you'd better own one mixer which get the function of slow start, by this way the flour will not scatter out.
      and, if making pies and coolies is really your favorite, you want to do it every  often, it's a good idea to get one standing mixer with timer. by this way you can do something others while the mixer is working. you don't have to stand there to wait.
      i own one Cuisinart Stand Mixers, the model is SM-55 5-1/2-Quart, you can visit my hub to know more of my experience.

      good luck.

    I've owned a KitchenAid and a Bosch.  My advice would be to go for the KitchenAid.  It works just as well, costs much less, and is easier to clean!  The attachments are also a lot less expensive.
