I agree about most of the wilton stuff!
But my most upsetting purchase was just recently... I got a loan to open my cake shop and drove to Kentucky to buy used equipment (I live in Northern Indiana). All the used equipment is fine but my DH got so equipment happy he nearly threw a fit when I almost turned down a 20qt mixer, so needless to say I bought it. I thought maybe I could get ALOT of frosting done at once and it was not nearly as expensive as a hobart, I payed $1,300. Well I finally got to use it last week, I almost threw up when after all my frosting was made and there we tiny lumps of shortening through out my frosting! I ended up having to put small batches into my KA to get it smooth! What a nightmare! Im going to try a few more times but I am very frustrated that I gave into the pressure of my equipment crazy husband!
So in the end for all of you who hate your wilton pans and turntables, just sleep good knowing you dont have a $1300 piece of equipment sitting in your kitchen.
