I use my Kitchen Aid all the time. Made pasta dough and used the pasta sheeter attachment to make ravioli tonight in fact. Other days it grinds meat for burgers etc. It's always out on my counter, ready to go. Makes great pizza dough too. Can't go wrong with a KA or it's various attachments!
UDS, Akorn, Weber Red Head Kettle, Drum Grill, Gasser w/cobwebs all over it. I'm JD.
