The funny part is this will be a tiny one compared to the last time I used a stand mixer. Those were the big Hobart floor type.
I have a KA and it really does a wonderful job with dough.Enjoy your new treasure.

Around here, residential FEDEX deliveries come late in the day. Why don't you break for lunch...

There in lies a good question. Not sure yet. Won't be doing bread until tomorrow morning cause it is too late in the day for that now, and too late in the starter cycle.

Mayhaps I will make a cake tonight

Has anyone used a vintage Hamilton Beach Mixer Model K, stand with removable head. I saw one at thrift store and its cheep, just the head, and man is it H-E-A-V-Y! I might go back and buy it.

It's similar to this but white, and just the head .. wish it had all the other parts:

We have the chrome version. It does a great job mixing the dough for black forest cake (schwarzwalder kirschtorte). The stand, beater, and accompanying stainless bowl are important components of this rig. We bought new replacement beaters about 5 years ago.

I got an somewhat older 3 speed KA hand mixer from Thrift Store, KHM3WH. It's not like the ones pic'd on their site, this one is abit more square looking. The speed selector is dark red and rectangular-ish, and the ejector button is black and tall rectangular.

It's works fine, but one of the clips that hold a beater doesn't work. I got a replacement parts list PDF, but not sure what part I need...I think it's the Gear Set that holds it.

Part # 16 is the Gear Set.

For S&G, I took it apart, and it is the gear set. I cleaned the motor contacts, and upon looking more closely at the gear set, there were supposed to be lil plastic fingers that held the beater in place. So I added a lil bit of tape to the beater, and it fit snuggly!

$7.99 KA mixer & 2 fix!

i have a stand mixer, same one for thirty years. now that i live alone, i don't use it anymore. handheld works for cakes. i only cream butter and sugar for cookies with it. it still works, no room on counter at all. it is very heavy and a pain to get it out. i guess the answer is what works for u
