I also have a KitchenAid Pro 5 Plus. It has really served me well. It mixes so quickly and efficiently, that I overmixed in the beginning when I first got it... not realizing that it didn't take that much time or effort.

no serious folks here

Kitchen aid IF the mixer says Hobart on the side. Whirlpool has made Kitchen Aid since 1986 and the quality has suffered in my experience. Try to find a pre-1986 Hobart Kitchen Aid and you will be set for life

I have owned a Bosch compact mixer for a few months now and have been very pleased with it. It is just the right size for myself and my wife and the usual attatchments are available. It will mix six pounds of dough at a time. The beauty part is that you can fold it up and put it away. If you need more than that they do make larger models. The mixer and bowl are plastic, which I don't see as a problem as I will not be throwing it or running over it with a car. Remember that ALL manufacturers over time either raise prices or lower quality. Or both. As long as you don't expect a 300 dollar mixer to perform as well as a 600 dollar mixer I'm sure you'll find one that's right for you.

I adore the vintage Hobart Kitchenaid mixers as well as the smaller 5 and 10qt Hobart commercial mixers.

IMHO, the Hobart mixers are the best of the best.
