Mixing homemade pizza dough or any bread dough for that matter is a total pain in my (hands, arms, shoulders, back, lol).
Not that I am knocking the awesome experience of kneading dough, it’s just that I don’t seem to have enough drive to consistently work the dough as much as is necessary.
I had looked on the internet and found some good deals but the higher-horsepower KitchenAid mixers were just out of my price range. I had almost broken down and decided to pick up the entry model at our local Walmart for $223.97.
I called my wife and told her what I was thinking about purchasing and thankfully she talked me into waiting it out just a bit longer and continuing my research. (Actually, now I remember it was because all Walmart had was the white version and she thought it would be hard to clean)
I went back home disappointed that I couldn’t start on all of those bakery projects I had imagined myself creating and continued my quest searching on Amazon.
And somehow there I found it.
So for the same price of the Walmart Classic Plus (white) 4.5 Quart 275 watt we were able to buy the Professional 5 Plus 5-Quart Stand Mixer 450 watt off Amazon.
Excitedly, I hollered at my wife to come check it out. She was impressed but wanted to look at the other colors (other than Empire Red). And here is why I say we totally scored.
The same model in other colors USED or RECONDITIONED was $300 and up. So I jumped on it.
The price fluctuates a bunch at Amazon so keep an eye out and wait a few days for changes to happen with the colors and prices.
Here is the direct link on Amazon to the one we purchased. =>Professional 5 Plus 5-Quart Stand Mixer
This mixer is very powerful and we are very happy with it.
