I bought the largest size so it doesn't knead a small loaf well (3 cups of flour). It mixes it well but I have to finish kneading by hand. It does best with 7-16 cups of flour. I love everything about the machine- I use it at least once a day. It handles all dough types well (bagels, pizza doughs, whole grain bread...
Where can you find a list of the 13 states that have "cottage laws?" Thanks, Emily
I guess it shows my age that these concepts are new to me. Thanks, it's something I'll have to experiment with. :)
