Since I had to say good bye to ol' red :( a year and a half ago, I've been doing my mixing and kneading by hand. Which hasn't been all bad. It's a great way to punch out some stress and I did appreciate the opportunities to teach my kids how things get mixed without it being hidden in a machine high on the counter.
Besides that, though, I was thrilled at the surprise Casey brought home last night!
I kind of don't even want to bake with it yet because I like the way it gleams. Give me time...I'm sure I'll break it in well.
Oh, and also, I must say they've made some fabulous design changes in the last 15 years. I love the new handle and one piece easier-to-attach splatter guard.
