I have left Taiwan and am moving back to Shanghai. I decide to part with my wonderful Kitchen Aid mixer because SH is 220v and the inverter that I was using (was a rather expensive one) was causing the motor to run irregularly :( Sad...I will miss you my dear KA!
I have noticed the emergence of a new (at least new to me) appliance called a dough maker that sells for about 1/3 of the price of a new stand mixer (not a KA :( ) I am talking about something that looks like this: http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=1...bbe6685a63ee4a
I used my KA to make cake batter, cookie dough, bread dough, frosting, mashed potatoes and other veggies, gravy, hmmm lots of stuff.
My guess is that a dough maker works at a limit number of speeds - maybe even one, and that one speed is relatively low. A dough maker probably cannot substitute for a stand mixer but a stand mixer would substitute for a dough maker. Am I right?
Do dough makers do their things well enough to warrant both a dm and stand mixer?
