    It looks like they're offering the 6qt model for $200 less than its list
    price. That's a good buy, obviously. We have a 4.5qt and a 5 qt. Kitchen
    Aid. I use the smaller one more than the larger one mainly because of the
    quantity size for a recipe. Look at what you're going to use it for. For
    bread I'd get the largest one. When I'm making pizza dough on the 4.5qt
    mixer I have to watch it jiggle and make sure it doesn't fall to the floor.
    My Breadman in the dough cycle makes pizza dough far more easily with less
    tending than either Kitchenaid. Other than that they're a good solid
    product, made in the good old U.S.A. You'll enjoy it!

    You need one with sharp paddles to mix SPAM properly with the rest of your
    garbage. Just more crap from foodbanter.

    It *looks* like that. I didn't use her link because I suspect
    lilyc.. gets a nickel for every sucker- but I went to dealstudio &
    looked up the mixer, which they list for $255. Clicked on the link
    and went to buydig.com where *that* link was no longer valid. they
    are asking $399 for the KA 6qt today.

    It was about $300 at Amazon last time I looked.

    Thanks for saying the small one can handle pizza dough! I use my
    Cuisinart processor for that now. The bread bakers discussions here
    scared me away from even attempting to make dough with the small KA my
    kids gave me last year. I'd never want anything larger for what I do,
    but their comments made me think I would burn it out if I ever
    attempted to make dough in it, so I continued to use the Cuisinart.

    Start with a small recipe of a wet dough*, and then go from there. Use the
    dough hook. As I mentioned, make sure you stand by to control the counter
    "jiggle". The motor is very tough.

    * 3 cups flour
    1.25 cups water
    2 tb olive oil
    1 tsp active dry yeast
    1 tsp Kosher salt.
    As the dough initially kneads, it sticks to the round bowl somewhat. Use a
    spatula to encourage dough ball formation. Once it forms things work pretty
    well, although don't want away the first few times.

    BTW: I bought a 2lb package of Red Star active dried yeast THREE years ago
    at Costco. It was almost free! It's been in the freezer since. It works the
    same now as it did when purchased, 1-2 tsp at a time from the freezer!

    Thanks, Kent. That's not too different from what I do now. The
    jiggle factor doesn't phase me, I just don't want to burn the motor
    out.
