    It's hard to beat a KA for the cash. IMHO. Lots out there for sure. Some are better but I don't think you can go wrong with the classic look and performance.

            I also concur. I have the ice cream attachment and use it all the time. I also love the pasta rollers. If you like pasta, homemade pasta is super easy with this attachment and the standard beater to mix the dough.

              I did a lot of research before getting my KA stand mixer. I really think the Professional 600 is worth the extra money. Its what I ended up with. Apparently in the 5qt there is a plastic gear that is designed to strip under too much pressure, I read quite a few complaints of this happening with dough. They say its an easy fix but...

              The 600 has been unstoppable so far. I love my KA. I' should be getting the meat grinder attachment soon!

                I have a KA mixer that I inherited from my grandmother. Thing's probably 40 years old and it's still going strong.

                  I have (I should say my wife has) a KA mixer, I think it's the second or third one down from their top tier. It's the one that comes with the stainless bowl, the Artisan I want to say. I want to get a meat grinder accessory for it.

                  I've heard seen & heard that the dough hook & regular paddle makes a great pulled pork puller by the way. Never tried it myself though.

                    I already have a 1/2 horse grinder from Cabela's.

                    No need for those attachments, at least the sausage and grinding.

                    In fact, I stuffed so much sausage last winter, we will probably get a sausage stuffer with the crank.

                        Our most used attachment is the shredder, followed by the meat grinder. I've read complaints about the grinder that comes with the plastic pusher, which I believe is the current model. The pusher itself isn't the issue; rather, it's how you can tell if the grinder is one of the newer, less well-made ones. We bought ours off of E-bay after making sure it had the wooden pusher, and we've been happy with it. You might want to look around for aftermarket grinder attachments though.

                          There's Breville brand as well, but KA seems to be the most popular

                            Hi guys: I have the KA Professional 500 Watt Lift mixer with the 6 Quart stainless steel bowl. I love my KA!!! I got mine at Costco. They do have sales on where they drop the prices by 50 to 80 dollars. Mine was regularly $349.00 and then Costco put out the coupon for 60$ off so I got mine for $289.00. Best money I ever spent. I went out and went on E-bay and got the grinder, slicer attachments. LOVE THEM. Have made much sausage using those attachments, and never had any complaints.

                            The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                            the good one grill
                            The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

                            Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

                            Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
                            The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

                            The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

                            Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
                            The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

                            Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

                            Grilla pellet smoker
                            We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5" x 29.5" footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

                            Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

                            PK 360 grill
                            The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it's easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

                            Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

                            kareubequ bbq smoker

                            The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

                            masterbuilt gas smoker
                            This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp's dial from 175? to 350?F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin'.

                            NK-22-Ck Grill
                            Napoleon's NK22CK-C Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It's hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the NK22CK-C a viable alternative.
