This sounds like such a first world question. Sorry. I am cringing a bit writing this if it helps. Basically we've been watching "The Great British Bake Off" and have been branching out a bit in our baking and cooking and feeling more adventurous. Simultaneously we lack quite a few 'essential' bits of kitchen equipment recipes frequently call for, and other bits of equipment we do have are ailing and in need of replacing. Basically, this askmefi question concerns what one bit of kit could I buy for my wife's birthday which will answer as many of these needs as possible? [more inside]
I have a 2004 Hyundai Tiburon with its original factory radio, a Kenwood KDC-MPV6022. I've just now tried to use its Aux In feature by connecting a cable to its RCA cables as listed on page 31 of the manual. According to Page 27 of the manual, the radio's configuration menu should have an Aux On/Off setting but this setting doesn't appear in my menu. I can hear the music from the iPhone but it's in addition to the other source (radio or CD), not instead of the other source, i.e. I hear both the iPhone and the other sound combined. I've tried connecting older iPods in case there were some equipment compatibility issues but the results were the same. What am I missing here? The radio has the Aux In cables so clearly it's expecting the audio. Why doesn't the radio allow me to select it as an input?

I want a crazy overpowered stand mixer that won't burn out whatever I throw in it. Is KitchenAid still the way to go? I've heard that the quality has dropped off in recent years. Do you have a newer model (preferably last five years) that you can recommend or rant about? Is there another brand that I should get? [more inside]
I am treating myself to a stand mixer for Christmas. Do I go with the trusty Kenwood Chef or should I consider one of those KitchenAide jobs that seem to be so popular right now? Or is there another brand entirely that I should look at? [more inside]
