I finally did it. I bought a KitchenAid mixer. I've been using my hand mixer and it has worked perfectly well. I couldn't pass up the bargain price...$159 for a brand new white KitchenAid Artisan 5 qt. mixer!
Bill wanted to get one around Christmas time but nearly crapped his pants when he saw how much they were. Well, today at Amazon.com they had a sale and with the $30 rebate the total price, SHIPPING INCLUDED, will be $159! The full retail at Kohl's right now is $359!!! Holy smokes! Thanks to my bargain hunting site http://wantnot.net/ !!!
