I’ve been looking into Stand mixers for a while now since I really want one.
I’ve never had a stand mixer before and I’m tired of burning out my hand mixers when I make things like royal icing or a batch of cookies (72 cookies).
I was looking at Kitchen Aid and Cuisinart initially because those are the brands most people typically used.
But then when I was doing research there were quite a few of bad reviews about what it can handle, warranty, bad customer service etc.
I don’t like the fact that the gears or gear box (in the pro) series for Kitchen Aid is plastic.
So I turned to Cuisinart but it looks like their latest 7 qt machine isn’t living up to it’s name when people tried to make bread with it.
I usually bake all sorts of cakes, cookies and even sometimes bread.
So I would like to have 1 mixer that can handle everything without the motor overloading and dying on me.
There seemed to be lots of good reviews for Bosch for making bread but less for cakes.
I’ve only really seen 1 review for it for making cakes and there wasn’t much detail.
The DLX looks really weird but there seemed to have been great reviews for it as well.
Both Bosch and DLX seemed to be mixers that can last a lifetime.
I was wondering if people on this forum have used either mixers can help me decide on which one I should get.
I don’t mind spending a little extra for something that can last for years.
What I would really like to know is if the turn outs for cakes (chiffon, sponge cakes and genoise) and icings (butter cream, royal etc) is good with either of the mixers
And if any modifications are needed to Rose’s recipes when using these mixers because they’re different when making the cake? (ie beating time, speed etc)
