This is the stand mixer that I have. The Kenmore KSM Stand Mixer. We got a really great deal on it years ago. However, my big metal bowl does not have a nice handle on it, which is the only thing I can imagine would make it even better! I really do like this mixer. It works really well. The only negative would be that it is so big and I don't have a kitchen large enough to keep this out. So really I do not use it as often as I would like. It is so easy and makes baking a breeze. It does all the work for you - and does a great job I might add! My husband really likes it too (he uses the dough mixer for pizza dough). KitchenAid is a big name and everyone wants one, including me, but recently I used my Kenmore stand mixer and realized it is probably just as good as the KitchenAid mixer. I realized how much I really liked it and how it made me enjoy baking more. I think KitchenAid is more attractive though (just the truth). I would still like one of those as well. =) Durability I have had this 7 years and it is noisy now. May need a new one soon.
