My wonderful G.E., 1961, is on it's last legs thanks to the first and only cookie dough that I made last night. :-(
Basically I used it mainly for mashed potatoes, with excellent results. I've been looking online and the Kitchen Aids 6 - 9 speeds seem to get the best and some of the worst reviews - Bed & Bath and Amazon. They don't like it for mashed potatoes.
Any recommendations for a reasonably priced mixer that will get light use, but must make great mashed potatoes?
