I gtot my first Kitchen Aid stand mixers last year as a birthday gift from my sister who knew I'd wanted one for years. I love it. It's a blue Artisan mixer and is simply gorgeous. But I'm a little put off by its performance in kneading bread dough.
The top of th emixer jumps up and down as it kneads, even when I use the "lock". And the dough rides up the dough hook and if I don't keep an eye onit, it will ride right up into the mixer. I've sortof solved that issue by spraying the odugh hook, even on top, with Pam, but what about the problem with the 'jumping' top of the mixer? Do I just have a lemon or is this something others have experienced?
