News flash: There is a big sale on the British made Kenwood electric mixer (7 qt. size, 650 watt motor, I think) at Williams-Sonoma for half price (currently $250)! The brand is not so well-known here as Kitchen Aid, so they haven't been selling well. Rose Levy Beranbaum prefers this make over Kitchen Aid because she said that it can handle small quantities as well as large ones. I just bought one recently: it works like a dream. It holds the counter well, doesn't "walk", and is quiet (though I haven't heard any other standing mixer in action, so do not have a real basis for comparison.) In addition to turning themselves, the beaters rotate in the "head" of the machine. If it matters to anyone, in comparing the cost of accessories for Kenwoods to those for the Magic Mill DLX from Sweden, accessories for Kenwood's generally seem to be less expensive.
