Kitchenaid mixer

I got one for the first time for x-mas I have always wanted one. I really
have not baked much I don't like sweets to much, but my family does and
we have been having a great time making cookies. My sister who passed
away years ago was a mother of 11 and made all their bread by hand.
She had a Kitchenaid which she used all the time. I saw on another post
a person was not happy with the kitchenaid for bread, couldn't handle
the dough. Maybe the older models were better she used it for years
2-3 loafs a day. I have bread machine for bread and I am very happy with it have never had a problem. This is the 3rd one we are on but to me needing a new machine every 5 years or so is not so bad. Anyway my question is what else do you use this mixer for besides baked goods?

I use mine for beating egg whites for souffles, waffles and pancakes. I also use it to make my dough for homemade pasta and noodles. I don't have the attachment to cut the pasta. I do that manually. Of course, it gets a workout for baking, too.

I use mine for whipping cream, bread, desserts, making butter. I got the pasta attachment for Christmas, and I am having a great time making pasta with it.

If you have a Sears store in your town check to see if they have the pasta rollers on sale. They were $29.95 at the end of the year.

It's supposed to be good for whipping mashed potatoes too. Mine just came on Tuesday, so I've only used it once so far to bake a cake. I also got the pasta roller attachment, will be making pasta this weekend.

I love my KitchenAid! Don't bake much either but was so excited when I got in for Christmas a few years ago. Even though it doesn't get used a ton it is so nice to have. It does such a suburb job and it's nice to have my hands free while mixing!
