Just wondering if anyone knows if the Vitamix 5200 can actually knead dough? I'm looking to make pizza dough in small quantities (enough for a 14" pie) in the next week and I'm hoping to not have to splurge another few hundred on a stand mixer if I don't have to. I have not made too many doughs before so I'm not sure what to expect from the Vitamix. Perhaps other chowhounders can comment?
I tried searching youtube and on Google and there are a surprisingly little amount of discussions on using blenders for kneading dough - maybe because it doesn't make sense??
Anyway, if I'm advised against even trying, perhaps someone can recommend what mixer to get? So far I have only found: http://www.amazon.com/KitchenAid-K45S... ($144) and KitchenAid KV25GOXMC Professional 5 Plus 5-Quart Stand Mixer, Metallic Chrome ($319).
To add some more background as to what doughs I'd like to make:
Chapatti, naan, pizza dough, no-knead bread (just kidding), maybe once in ever few years brownies or something similar...
Thanks in advance for your help!
