Appliances such as mixer stands - you'll find 5qt and under KitchenAid mixers with the weak motor and plastic gear case at many stores, but most don't stock the 6qt and larger models with the stronger motor and transmission with metal gears. Soo. I'm going to Amazon for that.
I'm an Amazon customer for many things, but for electric kitchen appliances, I go to Pleasant Hill Grain. It's still an online purchase. They seem to know what they're talking about, and the prices are close enough to those on Amazon. I ended up buying Ankarsrum instead of KitchenAid. My elderly mother is very happy with it.
