I've wanted one for a long time but didn't think I cooked (or baked) enough to deserve something so magnificent!! Well, then I thought about it some more and decided my wonderful new kitchen deserved one!! It really didn't take that long for me to figure out a reason to
buy : ))
I bought it from Overstock.com and decided to get a refurbished one. I read a lot of people's comments about them and didn't hear anything bad.
So, along with free shipping, (yeah Overstock) and the price you can get a big one for refurbished, I SAVED a lot : ))
Excitement was in the air as a tussled with this big very heavy box.
Yes Sireeee, I got a bright red one. There was never a question on the color for me. I know, Martha has a white and a stainless one but I'm no Martha!
I got RED!!
My main reason for deciding to get this is that I want to make home made bread and my hands hurt too bad to be kneading dough for a straight 20 minutes. I got the powerful one because it's supposed to do a better job with bread.
See the dough hook : ))
This large red machine weighs a ton. I bet it's 30 lbs! So there's no putting it away and getting it out or even moving it from place to place easily. I had to pick it's permanent home.
No, not there.
It takes up to much space there and it can't replace my toaster! That's where I make my Eggos every morning!!
So this is where it will live. It's where I'm used to using my old one but this baby will be there permanently.
I'll take pictures of my first mixing experience and for sure my first homemade bread!
For today, I'm just looking at it.
I'm linking with some new parties this week:
