After much agonizing I decided to not replace my dead bread machine and instead would like a stand mixer. They are very expensive though and after a week of reading reviews on various sites I'm more confused than ever. I want it primarily to knead different types of bread dough... which brand and model is strong enough for this without spending a lot if possible? I've read a lot of conflicting opinions.
And of course I'd like to take advantage of any labor day sales which is why I titled the post urgent :)
