I too just got a KA. I won a 6-quart pro series and am in awe. I have wanted one of the smaller ones for years and can't wait to start using it. Anyone know of a board dedicated solely to KA products or the mixer?

I love my kitchen aid. I use it often, and when I don't I like seeing it on the counter, so it is a win win.

I'm very pleased with my Professional 5. My main use is bread making, and it handles heavy dough well. The range of speeds is very wide. It does the bread. The food processor does the pasta.

I was given a used KA45, which I horse traded to a K5. One day I walked in to a thrift store here in town and found a Hobart N50 for...$7 + sales tax. I gave the lady a five and three ones and told her to keep the change. She replied, "Are you sure? It's half a buck." As soon as I had the beaters and bowl, I gave the K5 to a friend.

Oh sure.. rub it in.

Though, to be honest I really have no issues with the KA (600 Pro) but the Hobart would be nice escalation.
