Kitchen Aid advice kneaded

Sat, 24 Aug 1996 01:52:29 -0700
I'm happy to be the owner of a new Kitchen Aid mixer, but I'm wondering
about the length of time dough should be kneaded with the dough hook.
Kitchen Aid says 2 minutes, which I find hard to believe. Betsy
Oppenneer's book recommends using the paddle for mixing, then the dough
hook for 5 minutes, and Bernard Clayton recommends the paddle for mixing
and then the dough hook using the same amount of time as you'd use hand

I've always hand kneaded about 15 minutes and would think something
approaching that would be reasonable with the Kitchen Aid, too.

I'd appreciate advice from the Kitchen Aid owners out there.
