I've been considering Bosch mixers for bread baking because they can knead many loaves at a time. But since they are admittedly pricey, I didn't do it. Now is the time!
I've only had this for a short time... I sure wish I'd have taken the plunge when I first thought about it.... when I was cooking for 6! My family is now shrinking as my boys grow up but I still love this machine. I don't do 6 loaves at a time like the Bosch can do, but I do 4!
I have a Kitchen Aid that I've used for years and it has done a good job. However... low gear died on the thing. I can no longer knead bread, it runs too fast.
This Universal Plus Mixer has not disappointed me!
I purchased a bundle set. It has the mixer, the blender dough hook, beaters, and cookie paddles. Next on my list of things to get is the food processor with the shredding and grating blades. I'll review them when the time comes.
One of the things I like best is that this is one machine that does multiple jobs. It can take the place of several kitchen appliances. You don't need separate machines for all many mixing chopping jobs you do.
