Thanks for the feedback and welcome to DC!

I don't know much about the Hobart. Is that a very expensive one normally?

I finally used my KA Stand Mixer for the first time. I made chocolate chip cookies and then I made blueberry muffins. I absolutely love it! I also love the Aqua color. Don't know why I didn't just get one years ago!

The next thing I need to try is yeast bread and/or pizza.

I was making dough the other night and I realise what a mistake I made the last holiday season. Macy's had a nice big KA, with 6 quart bowl for $250 only after rebate from KA. There is no way I can find one any cheapper. Darn. Well, maybe next season.

Just bought a flaker attachment for mine at Jalyns in Canada so now plan on adding some oats and make my own granola too.This machine has never let me down.
Thanks for the input. And welcome to DC!

That was a good sale. I saw it online around holiday season too. I am sure they will run another sale like that during our next holiday season. Another good time to check for sales is on Black Friday.
