Difficulty with dough hook - Delonghi DS7
I've got a new Delonghi mixer (burned through two Kitchenaids in the last 10 years) as well have just switched to using only fresh ground whole wheat.
I'm failing at being able to knead well with the dough hook. Everything just clings to the outside of the bowl while the the dough hook spins inside. I coax and prod with rubber spatula, but it just doesn't take and form a nice ball like my bread flour and kitchen would do.
Today I just adjusted my dough hook so it is lower and closer to the bowl, but it didn't appear any different.
My process is toss all ingredients into the bowl, put on dough hook and turn it on. Adjust moisture by adding add'l water or flour.
I almost went with the Bosch with the different style kneading hooks....would this have been a better choice for me?
