Kitchenaid stand mixer attachments reqs

lulou23 | Jan 28, 2012 08:34 PM

I just received my grandmothers old KA mixer ( KSM90) and plan to use it as a starter mixer to see if I will truely use it often enough before upgrading to a new machine ( or until it dies). It has the wire whip with it but I need to purchase other attachments. Any reqs on the dough hook and beater. I am not sure whether to go with the flex beater, coated or non coated hooks etc. Any other must needs for starting out? Shield? I am not a huge baker, but I would like to start making some breads and fresh pasta. ( I just received the atlas pasta machine for christmas, so I will be rolling pasta with this, maybe mixing pasta dough in KA) TIA
