use it or not too use it?
those that seen my posts know that my bread isn't perfect but while trying different ways of working on my dough i notice not much difference if any between hand kneading and hook mixer kneading.
i got breville wizz mix profesional with 700Watts motor that comes with nice hook and great side and bottom reach while mixing even small size dough.
on slow speed it takes about 10min to get it done and dough doesn't get hot as it used to with simple food procesor, that was very nasty to my dough so i never used it.
i can manage to keep my kitchen cleaner while using this machine and it gives me 10min to do other things around.
also if i use it would it be safe and maybe better to go for little bit more speed to keep dough warm? i use 40-45C water and after i finish on low speed dough temperature is low 20s those cold melbourne winter days.
