Default Bread dough mixer/kneader advice


I'm getting backing into baking bread. I'm currently using my
KitchenAid mixer with a 4.5 quart bowl to mix/knead the dough.

I'd like to make enough dough for 2 largish loaves (9x5 pans, 1.5 to 2
pounds each). WhenI try this with the KitchenAid, the dough starts
climbing above the top of the bowl.

I'm thinking I need something with about a 6 quart capacity, and just
as sturdy as the KitchenAid.

Does any one have suggestions - preferably based on experience?

Thanks in advance!

- Mark

I use my hands. There is no machine that can tell me when the dough
feels right.

Using hands also has the benefit of a small workout, relief of stress
and anxiety and very low electricity consumption <g>

Using my hands hurts so I use a mixer.

I use a Hobart Kitchen Aid K5SS and I can do 2 loaves of bread at a
time. If you really want to make more try an Electrolux Magic Mill.
My husband uses it and usually makes 4 loaves at a time.

Thank for the information on the Electrolux. I'll have to start
saving my pennies.

I know this is going to make me sound like an ass, but why did you
waste your time and mine with this non-answer to the question I
actually asked?

Hi Mark,

Perhaps Janet offered her comments because she understands
that were yours the only needs to be met, you probably would
have chosen a private communication medium rather than
posting on a public forum.

All the best,

Because my hands work better than an electric machine, especially when
mixing such a big recipe. I make a double challah recipe often and I use
about 7 cups of flower. I mix by hand in a huge plastic bowl and find it
is a lot easier and, in the long run, faster than battling with a machine.

You did not specify you wanted a recommendation for a machine. Sorry I
touched a nerve. Maybe you should try kneading some dough and putting
some of your anger into it. Might make you feel better.

Some people will never understand Usenet.

Thanks, Kenneth. I think Mark was just having a bad day. People
shouldn't let Usenet upset them. There are far too many other things
that matter in this life.

I apologize for posting this response to the wrong reply!!

However, I posted the original question to a public forum. Janet
decided to answer a question I did not ask. Why should I not be a bit
peeved at that? I have no problem with her opinion on hand kneading
vs. machine mixing. BUT, THAT ISN'T WHAT I ASKED ABOUT! If she
couldn't respond to my question, why answer at all?

You could try the previously discussed "artisan bread in 5 minutes a
day" approach.

Otherwise, my 4.5 quart kitchenaid used to do it for me, and the 6 quart
does 3 to 4 loaves. A loaf takes like 3.5 cups flour (like 0.9 lb) and
a little more than a cup of water (0.6 lb or there abouts), along with
salt, yeast, oil, sugar etc as desired.
