I completely forgot tthis old wonder until I started to make a bach of cookies. I inherited this heavy clunky POWERFUL thing from mom when she went for newer/lighter. Cuz I'm a guy, I like more power so I grabbed it up when it became an orphan. I own and use a 1948 Dornmeyer "Mixwell" mixer. Nothing slows this down. The stand is gone, the bowls are gone, the meat grinder is gone, but I still have the beaters, and it still grunts through some heavy batter.
1948, does this make me the winner? Oh, my sister gave me a new stand mixer years and years ago, but it'sa still in it's plastic bag. Just not as powerfull as my Dornmeyer.
