I need a mixer!
After reading answers on this forum, I was sure the Bosch compact would be perfect; not made in China and not too big a footprint. Since bread isn't on my menu, ( I hand knead or make no knead) I went with the compact which I was assured would beat 12-14 egg whites. It will sort of but never to the volume I need for my in demand angel food and chiffon cakes. It just doesn't beat fast enough and there isn't a higher setting than 4. So now I need to re-shop. If you have a mixer, minimum 400W and it works great, please let me know.
