I'm on a mission to cut back my monthly spending, like almost every one is lol. But I really want to learn to make my own breads, pie crust, cakes, pretty much if I can make it from scratch, I want to make it. With that being said, I really want to invest in a stand mixer. It would come in handy when it came to kneading bread and mixing batter. I found one I REALLY want on walmart.com, but it is about $130. And it's not even a kitchen aide! Do you think it's worth it? I don't want to buy one second hand, because you never know if there is someone wrong with it and there's no way to return it if there is. And they have cheaper ones online, but I don't know how well they will work, and most are plastic. Has anyone out there invested in a stand mixer and thought it was a good investment?
