Kitchen Aide is for heathens!!
Good Guys had a Mothers Day Special, I bought the Chef Major 770 with 6.7 litre mixing bowl
and it was cheaper than Kitchen Aide and Sunbeams at the time.
The special came with $300 pasta attachments, mincer and blender.
I've also bought the continuous grater/chopper since.
I've made a 12 batch of meringues, in 15 mins and didn't even break a sweat.
I loooooove my KC!!
I think some new models have digital timers for mixing, I told the sales lady that's what my iPhone is for. Gotta actually do some work!
