So glad we purchased this stand mixer. The KitchenAid name in stand mixer is one of the most popular and recognizable brand and I can see why! This small appliance is a must have especially in the time of pandemic. I have been using this to make bread and all kinds of baking goods and even noodles to help reduce trips outside. This appliance makes it so easy, no longer need to have big biceps for kneading flour and doughs (although you might need the biceps to lift it off the counter). This is well built and sturdy, you will only need to buy one your whole life and you could definitely pass this down generations. Love the extra attachments it comes with or that you can purchase separately, I recently purchased the ice cream maker attachment, it makes some of the most delicious ice cream, and you don't have to worry about ingredients that are hard to pronounce being in it, because you are making it from scratch! The possibilities are truly endless!
