Food processors liquify, your KitchenAid mixer is for when you want to whip air into things, like egg whites. I agree with the above comment, great for bread, you can get to the kneading stage without getting it all over your hands!

Everything Kitchens currently has the KitchenAid 600 Pro mixer for $299 in a plain brown box (sounds like porn!), plus a $50 rebate from the manufacturer for purchases through August 20, 2011. No tax outside of Missouri, free shipping. Limited colors available (Blue Steel or Copper Pearl) at that price. Check it out:

Within the last two weeks I purchased the KitchenAid KP26M1XWH 575watt 6qt bowl lift stand mixer for $299 on-line and then took advantage of the $50 mail-in rebate. So far I have made 3 types of breads & breadsticks, 2 varieties of chocolate chip cookies and whipped potatoes. I am pleased with the product and its results so far.

Does anyone have experience with the KA Pasta Excellence attachment set? Since these cost more than the mixer I need to make sure they perform as advertized. I have read that making pasta is worth the extra effort which does not seem to be that extreme. Is that pretty much on target?

Same performance questions for the food grinder attachment for producing coarse ground ‘chili’ beef.

Thanks

I have no experience with the pasta attachments but with the food grinder.

You need your meat cold but it works well. Regrinding is a hassle as the throat of the grinder is small. I wish the coarse plate was coarser but there are aftermarket plates available, though I don't have them so I can't speak to how well they work.
