The impulsive "love all kitchen tools" side of my brain really wants a stand mixer, but the voice of reason keeps asking "why?". I'm not much of a baker, though if it were easier I might be. I do like muffins, and we make bread and pizza fairly often.
Do you use your stand mixer often? What do you use it for? What brand/model do you like best? Bottom line, is it worth the hefty price tag?
