I spent most of the week as a leader at Cub Scout Day Camp so I did not do any drugstore or grocery shopping. I did, however, make one very large purchase today.
Well, I finally did it!! I finally purchased a Kitchen Aid Professional Series 600 mixer. Are you ready for how much it cost?? $389.99 (YIKES!!). I have always wanted a Kitchen Aid mixer and I have probably spent over $389.99 on the cheap mixers that I have purchased over the past 10 years. Sometimes it is worth it to pay more for a higher quality product. I have never heard anyone say anything negative (other than the price) about the Kitchen Aid mixers and they seem to last forever. I have several friends that have their mother's or mother-in-law's 20+ year old Kitchen Aid mixers or received one as a wedding gift 10+ years ago and absolutely love them.
I know I will get a lot of use out of this mixer & I would also like to purchase the grain mill attachment at some point so I can grind my own flour.
