Standing vs Handheld mixers 2961
On Mon, 27 Mar 2006 23:54:08 -0500, Dave Smith I have the KA stand mixer and a Cuisinart hand mixer, which I use for different things. The hand mixer...
That's quite a collection -- if I weren't trying to rid myself of some possessions, I'd make a request for inclusion in your will to me. It only proves that they don't make things today like they used to. I oft wonder how they engineer these things to last vs. last a few years.
I bought my first KitchenAid K5 in 1976.

I have buttociated 'sugar' with weight, but not so, I guess.
Trying to wake up! Can't do it this a.m., Too much sugar last night? No, as a matter of fact, I had all the proper things, maybe that's why I am so groggy. More tea! More tea! Dee Dee

nobodyhome1 I find the taste to be just fine. But then I grew up eating them that way as that's the way my grandmother and mother made them. That is something I would never do...
