Thanks for the consideration, choclatechef. Hopefully, we can get skipc and a few others to join in on this. You know what would be a big plus? It would be if we could get KitchenAid to design a 10 quart, gear-driven machine like Hobart's C-100. I am sure there is a high end market for such a machine, as there has been some interest in a 10 quart on their forums. Maybe an even better idea, would be to get Hobart to start making their C-100 again!

Cool Mr. C. Are you going to ask them to join us? That would be great.

I would rather have a Hobart C-100, than a Kitchenaid 10qt mixer. I want the best quality!

I suppose I can try to private message them on the forum. As for the Hobart C-100, I would certainly like to see that one brought back. It got replaced by the A-120 though. In that size range, I suppose 2 quarts doesn't make much of a difference.

The closest machine you can get to a C-100 is the Berkel PM-10. I believe the Hobart C-100 will run the same attachments that the KitchenAid mixers will. There is a lower-priced 10 quart mixer available from Thunderbird, called the ARM-01. It is very similar to the Berkel, yet it is priced considerably lower. I would assume it's because you can only get the Thunderbird via mail order, and finding a service center may be difficult. Just to be on the safe side, I would be more inclined to recommend the Berkel due to Berkel's wider network of dealers and service centers.

Ok, this should be a simple question to answer right?

I have

1 Kitchen aid 5 Ultra Power,

1 Kitchen Aid Professional 6,

2 Dormeyer Silver Chef’s,

1 Kenwood KSM 400 (I think that is the model #)

1 Kitchen Aid model 3B

1 Hamilton Beach Hamilton Beach Eclectrics 4.5-Quart Stand Mixer

I had a Delonghi that was the same as the Kenwood but the motor burned up the first time I used it. Oh well. At least I got my money back

I inherited my moms entire Oster set. Since I'm the one that is always cooking and baking, my sisters just told me that it's mine. There are things there that I have NO idea what they are. I do like the ice cream maker though. That brings back memories My mother got around 89 -90 and it still runs really good.

I have a KA Professional 6, which the company sent me to replace my Artisan (I think that's what it was) because the first one developed a quirk where it wouldn't shut off. I sometimes had to unplug it to get it to stop. It was out of warranty, but only gently used, so I wrote them a note and they were very good about sending a new one. I really like the new one.
