It's that time of year again. . .another birthday is quickly approaching. (Didn't I just post about turning 30?!) There is something on my list of wants and needs, and I would like the opinions of some other culinary experts. :-)
To make a long story short - I need a "big mixer" since I burn out a hand one about once a year, and after nine years of marriage I should have done this a long time ago! I am really tired of not being able to double a recipe, etc.
The "question" is (**drum roll**) - - Should I use all of my birthday money and get a Kitchen Aid brand, or is there a certain type that would make me just as happy? I am not necessarily a name brand gal, but I do like quality and prefer not to purchase another "big" mixer in a few years!
I would like to know if you have another brand that has served you well, and if I do choose a Kitchen Aid, do you think it is wise to get one from eBay? (I can also get a simple one for a reasonable price at Walmart.)
