    I need a new stand mixer!

    Thinking about getting the one pictured above. It is almost in the style of the KA mixer, being the it has planetary mixing action.

    KA is no good! Was going to get another KA machine, but the reviews on it were coming from lots of dissatisfied users. While KA only warrants their mixers for only one year, Cuisinart warrants this one for THREE years. Two years more!! It has a lot of nice features. Built to last!

    Also, THIS machine features a 500-watt motor, whereas the KA Artisan has only 325 watts.

    KA products have gone down hill & down the wayside!! :wink:

    I'd name it Gort. From the top, front it reminds me of the head of the robot Gort from the original movie "The Day The Earth Stood Still".:okay:

    Yeah, the front part where the cover is that hides the accessory drive looks just like him. Hah!! I think that it's a fresh newer look than the KA mixers though.

    They are just junk now, & not too many consumers like them any more.:wink::laugh:

    That's a stand mixer??

    By the way, if you can afford the one on top, and you can get the use out of it to justify the cost. then go for it. But, I've been using this one for years, and I'm happy with it for what I do:

    Hamilton Beach, 6 speeds, detachable mixer, and only $40 at Target (marked down from $50).
