Since I was a little girl I've believed with all my heart that KitchenAid mixers are the very best mixers to be had. And I continued to believe that even though my beloved tangerine artisan stand mixer broke once. I even believed it after it broke twice. But now, after the motor has died yet again, I'm starting to doubt my commitment to KitchenAid.
But maybe I just got a lemon of a mixer and need to give the brand another chance. Afterall...my dishwasher and food processor haven't failed me [knock on wood].
Here's the situation: The last repair is under warranty. I can have it repaired again for free if it is a problem related to the previous one or pay for parts only if it's a whole new problem. Or I can return the whole darn mixer to the repair guy and he'll give me my $80 back from the last repair.
So what do I do? Get it repaired and possibly have it break again? Or just take my $80 and buy a sturdier model that can handle my quadruple pizza dough recipes?
One option is clearly cheaper than the other, but I don't want to get stuck in a loop of continually repairing this thing. I've already spent nearly the original cost of the mixer in repairs!
What would you do?
