Q: What is the best introductory stand mixer for someone who is trying to get into baking bread on a budget? KitchenAid mixers seem to be the favorite but they also have a higher price tag than I'm willing to spend on something I'm not sure I'll use.

Editor: Travis, a good stand mixer or food processor is certainly an investment, and it's probably best not to purchase unless you're pretty sure that you'll make good use of it. Perhaps consider a heavy duty food processor with dough kneading capacity? Readers, any suggestions?

In the meantime, do consider just kneading by hand — here's a good starter tutorial!
