K5a can have its bowls and blenders replaced by using the ones for newer KitchenAid Mixers.
I believe in either going for the cheapest or dearest of a product. If you want to replace your k5a you should look at the KitchenAid K5SSWH Heavy Duty Series 5-Quart Stand Mixer, White which will give you a fast mix.
People have found that KitchenAid K5SSWH is very good for bread making particularly with its heavy duty motor. A grain grinder can also be added. How fresh is that!
The KitchenAid K5SSWH is heavy so you will probably leave it out on your counter so make sure you check the measurements particulary head room as it lifts up.
There are mixed reviews about the accessories of the KitchenAid K5SSWH some likeing them some not.
Check whether the paddles are made of stainless steel I understand they are not and that they are not dishwasher safe.
Make sure you addd all the ingredients to your bowl before you put the bowl on the mixer as the bowl itself goes up and down. The solution is to take the bowl out and then add any further ingredients.
