My KitchenAid Professional Series 600 stand mixer broke down last night while mixing 5 cups of flour and some eggs to make dough for pasta (using the KitchenAid roller/cutter attachments). The dough hook was running on the lowest speed (1). It just ground to a stop and made horrible sounds.
This is my 4th KitchenAid mixer in about 9 years. The quality is terrible.
I am looking for another brand to try that has the roller and cutter attachments like the KitchenAid but doesn't need to be replaced every 2 years. I can't afford to spend thousands of dollars so it would need to be in the same ballpark as the kitchenaid in price.
Thanks for any advice!
