We're in the market for a good quality stand mixer - something like a Kitchen Aid or a Bosch...I think my hubby has also looked at some Cuisinart ones? Any recommendations? If you have one, what type do you have and what do you like/dislike about it? We will be shipping it overseas where it will be difficult to replace it or get parts, so I need something that will be reliable and durable. My other big consideration is that it will be able to knead at enough bread dough to do at least 2 loaves at a time, as well as any other general mixing needs.
I'd also love to know if you do have one of these types of mixers if there are any attachments you'd consider essential? I don't think we will be grinding wheat or anything. A meat grinder attachment was recommended by our colleagues where we are going since ground beef is not readily available. Any others that you'd be lost with out?
