    They are the best though.
    So your gf wants you to buy her a mixer so she can make you cookies and cakes? Sounds like a keeper. :waytogo:

    dale... I love mine... I overload the crap out of it making bread and it comes back for more.... so far several years of use and no problems other than breaking mixing beaters etc from abusing them,,,,

    look at costco or online for the best deals... make sure its the current model

    I have one also. Actually it was my grandmas (who knows when she bought it), and it still works perfectly.

    Now I just have to get my wife to use it...:D

    I also have my grandmother's KitchenAid mixer.

    Well worth the money, if you ask me. This one must be ancient and it still mixes anything.

    One thing to look at: The old, really heavy duty style, has a bowl that raises up to the mix-head via a crank handle on the side.

    Some of the newer ones havea mix-head that tilts up and away. I haven't used one of these, so I don't know how robust they are.... but I I've heard they aren't as tough.

    You can still buy the old style, but they are much more expensive.

    Probably somewhat like a D44/D60 conversation starting here.......

    Both my mom and hers have/had kitchenaid mixers wih the tilt up head. They are "hardcore bakers" and never has either one ever failed. And they are both well over 30 years old. Heavy as hell as well! My mom can't even pick it up anymore! Even has a meat grinder attachment for making sausage :grin:
