Welcome to DC.

A newer, more powerful mixer may do a better job on a heavy bread dough.

First, welcome to DC. A fun place to be.

The newer and more powerful mixers are cable of doing more tasks with less effort. I think you will be very happy with a new mixer.

DH says we sold mine at a yard sale, but I don't remember that. I think it's in the attic. He convinced me to get the Kitchen Aid because there was something off with the control knob on the Oster. On the setting "1" it went extremely fast rather than slow, and on the highest setting, whatever number that was, it went extremely slow. But I was aware of that and adjusted for it. I loved the fact that I could put the blender, food processor, grinder attachments right on the main appliance, easily exchangeable, and I felt that it mixed more thoroughly than the Kitchen Aid.
