I have a Kitchen Aid Artisan. It does a very good job per bread recipe; but don’t double up the recipe and knead two batches one after another ‘cause the motor becomes so hot you can fry an egg on it. If you have to, wait at least forty five minutes or until the motor cools off before kneading the next batch.
Which is considered the best for bread baking????? Thanks
The Electrolux is adored by serious bread bakers. It has a huge capacity and the motor will not strain with even the toughest dough. But the unit is expensive and there’s a learning curve; do you really need its capability? If you only make a couple of loaves at a time and use mainly non-whole-wheat flour, then any of the machines will work fine.
the ka5 artisan is fine for single loaves. the ka5 bowl lift for double. the ka6 as well as the cuisinart7, too. I love my Bosch universal and can knead up to it’s full 7 qt capacity!
but for the most amazing bread dough, NOTHING beats the Zojirushi!!! the capacity is limited to 1 loaf. if u use it for just dough kneading, u can mix 2 loaves, maybe 3; and let it rise and bake using a traditional oven.
Given the question posed. I think the Electrolux is best. Be mindful however that it is not as versatile as the other mixers. In addition it is expensive. Keep in mind also that a mixer is a luxury and not a necessity.
