My KA has been through a lot and I always use it to knead dough. It doesn't get tired and gets the job done in half the time. It whips cream so fast you can't walk away or you end up with butter.

I'd like to add a meat grinder and sausage stuffer some day.

If it died today, I'd go right out and buy another.

A mixer that has gone where no other mixer has gone before...

Yeah, I always let the mixer do the kneading. I still know people who hand knead because they didn't realize that their KA could handle it.

This, absolutely. My bread machine died, but my KA Pro 600 keeps me baking.

It's a 5-quart bowl lift model with a 350 Watt motor. I don't remember the model number as I sit here in the LR.

Thought I would find this thread so I could say nice things about Lucille.

This passed weekend Kathleen and some friends made pirogies, a lot of them, 271 of them. I was doing calculus.

They needed dough made and I had mentioned to Kathleen she could use her new hand mixer with the dough hooks (new KA one, the 7 speed spendy model). She said they were going to need more dough than that and at some point asked if I could take a break from calculus and mix them up dough.

I look at the recipe and it called for 4.5 cups of flour, which is a little light for Lucille but ok. Oh no, they wanted a triple recipe. She is rated at 14 cups and I put 13.5 in. Mixed it like a champ. I did start slow though, the bowl was pretty full, with the 6 cups of sour cream that the recipe calls for as well.

The next day it was just a double recipe and it almost seemed sad to have that little bit of flour in there.
