Who has a KitchenAid mixer, of very recent vintage, and can answer questions?
Yeah, I hauled out The Flounder to ask this, because I'm trying to stay in the middle of the pack on Reputation. Black triangle == good. High reputation /= good.
I apparently don't use my mixer much, or at least I hadn't in the
past. I'd never paid attention to which brand it was until very
recently. When I got out all the equipment to make green tomato
relish, I realized that my food processor stuff said "Oster" and not
"Kitchenaid" (or even Sunbeam/Hamilton Beach). I just kind of noted
it, and then went back to what I was doing. I paid no further
attention until a couple of weeks ago, when I decided that zucchini
bread would be nice. I dragged out the mixer part, and was fine, up
until the batter thickened, and I suddenly remembered that I had the
incredible hate for the mixer.
There's a lot more, and I'll put it in the comments...
