I know this topic has been covered several times. I've read all the threads, and I am leaning towards the Pro 600 as people tend to suggest. I am willing to pay the price for it if it will be more versatile in the long run.
I have just one major concern: is the Pro 600 good when I'm NOT making bread dough and NOT making big batches? For instance, is a single batch of brownies that would fit in an 8x8 cake pan doable in this thing, or is it just too big a bowl to be effective on such a small volume of batter?
You see, while I really like the idea of having the capacity to do bigger projects, I just have a feeling that more often than not, I'm not going to need it for that. I take baking fairly seriously when I do it--I like making cakes and cookies too, and I am looking forward to getting into breadmaking. I just tend not to make enormous batches. And I don't want to find that I'd be better off just pulling out my bowls and doing it by hand after I've shelled out the big bucks for this thing. That would be very disappointing.
