I've got one of their hand mixers that has to be 10 years old. I use it all the time and it runs like new. It came with a bunch of attachments and I really can't complain about the quality.

I have a Kenwood Chef Major. I like it. I now know where I can go locally to get attachments for it--thanks for the link Rocket_J_Dawg. A friend who was a professional pastry chef gave it to me when she moved. I haven't shopped for any attachments other than the ones she had for it.

I've taken up knitting again. I'm working my way through one of the bins of wool (hanks from yarn I spun and lots I bought on my forays to yarn stores) making scarves and hats for friends. Once I've warmed up my knitting skills again, I have two sweaters designed--one for the DH and one for me. I used to design yarn when I used to spin, so I tend to design the sweater to match the yarn I have on hand, not the other way around--pick out a pattern and then find the yarn.

The problem with knitting is that I have a hard time putting it down--just one more repeat of the pattern...next thing I know, it is 4:00 a.m.

Glad it helped. We have a place in one of our malls that sells all the machines and their attachments. I just wish they were cheaper...I would love to have your Chef Major. With us moving back to Germany in a few years it seems pointless to spend the money on something that we can't take with us.

I'm getting a kick out of watching the Golden Globes! OMG, while Jacqueline Bissett is around 70, and looks fantastic, her speech (or lack of it) was downright painful. A tad bit smashed.
