Making dough with Kitchenaid - am I killing Martin?

Sonia | Feb 8, 2005 01:15 PM

My Kitchenaid stand mixer's name is Martin... don't ask. Martin's about 3 years old and gets very light use (I'd say 3-4 times a year). I made pizza dough last night with Martin and he seemed to be laboring really really hard. He was making a wheezing sound, sort of like a heavy whimpering. Almost rhythmic. And sort of twisting at the neck. The sound of the motor was belabored... not a healthy hum but whining and complaining... This is too hard, he seemed to be saying. I'm not built for this kind of abuse. But you came with a dough hook, so surely you were expecting to knead for me?

Tell me, is Martin sick?
