lightweight stand mixer
Has anyone bought one in recent years? Or does anyone who wants a stand mixer these days by one of the heavy behemoths and leave it on their counter or install a cabinet lift? And anyone else buys a hand mixer?
I'm not a big baker but make cookies, bars, etc. occasionally and I like a stand mixer. I still have my mother's ancient Sunbeam Mixmaster. It does the job for me but it does labor in the final stages of mixing cookie dough. I'm afraid it's going to croak one of these days so I'm investigating new mixers.
Anyone have any experience with modern day lightweight stand mixers? I'm sure they're not made like they used to be and wondering if it would be comparable to the one I'm using or a piece of junk.
