    i just *know* it'll be so much easier to make bread and pizza dough without making my neck and back play up for a week after all that kneading!

    Yep. One of the things I learned (not as quickly as I would have liked!) is that you can indeed overmix things with these high powered mixers.

    I have this really yummy peanut butter cupcake recipe. I've always stirred it by hand. When I used the mixer, those lovely little morsels were dry as a bone. :(

    So, when in doubt, undermix for the first few times! (Doesn't apply to doughs where you are trying to develop the gluten, so you are good to go there).
