Which Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer Should I Invest in?

snix | Nov 26, 201011:08 AM

In the craziness of Black Friday I picked up a Kitchen Aid mixer for myself. I have always wanted one and could never justify the expense... until I saw the base models on sale for $149 this morning. Later when I read up on the mixer on some of the boards it seems that the older Hobart produced ones are stronger and more durable. I've been looking at some of the used K5-A mixers on Ebay... I would like one that will last, I probably would use it weekly (I want to learn to grind meat and make sausage) and I already have a spot picked out on my counter top for it. So I just wanted your advice, if you were going to buy one which one would it be? or would it even be a KA? Also are there any problems with connecting newer KA attachments to the older mixers? Thanks for any advice...
