Mixing bread dough: Anyone own Viking or DeLonghi?
Through the forum search I have read some threads mentioning these mixers, but found no mention from anyone who actually owned one. I'd like to hear from anyone who does, and, especially, about it's bread dough making capacity.
I've been using a Dimension 2000, which holds 12 cups of flour and mixes dough for 4-6 loaves of bread at a time. The one review of the mixers I read only gave the results from mixing dough for 2 loaves. My little KitchenAid can do that, but I need to do more at a time.
I do like my KA for cakes and cookies better than the D2000, but would like to make bigger batches. I thought maybe these mixers might be able to do it all, but don't want to spend almost $500 and find out they don't!
