The Bosch Universal mixer and kitchen center has a special reputation among discerning cooks. It takes in stride heavy tasks that would literally break conventional mixers within a few uses, and Bosch offers features and benefits found in no other machine!
Highly paid endorsements and continual ad campaigns are how some companies sell mixers. Bosch, on the other hand, doesn’t advertise their mixer at all. The success of the Bosch Universal has been growing for decades based simply on its reputation for superior performance. Instead of paying millions of dollars each year to housewares celebrities and cooking shows, Bosch puts their money and effort into real engineering advancements and quality of construction. Continual refinement has made today's Bosch Universal a kitchen machine like no other.
“I wasn't sure how the new, lighter-weight Bosch would work. Wow! It has more speed and runs quieter. It mixed my dough more thoroughly, causing my bread to be light and rise high.”
– Sheila B., MO
The newest model is the Bosch Universal Plus. Its 800 watt motor has a new design that extends motor life expectancy fourfold... and it was exceptionally long before. Just as importantly, the Bosch has a unique transmission that gets the motor’s hard-turning torque to the bowl better than in other mixers. Other new features include suction cup feet, a larger, lock-down bowl with 360 degree handle, and a pop-out drive shaft for easy cleanup. Another speed was added, while expanding the speed range with a lower low gear and a higher high gear, still including the pulse feature. The distinct advantages of the Universal Plus over ordinary mixers are now greater than ever before.
There’s no overhead gearbox with the Bosch, because it's powered from below—a design with major advantages. The base of the machine provides space to transmit motor power to the bowl using a belt rather than gears. The plastic gears in overhead-driven machines are small and breakage-prone, they transmit torque inefficiently, and the heat in their tight enclosure leads to early failure when worked hard. The Bosch belt efficiently transmits far more torque, runs cooler, and is incredibly durable, with an amazing twenty-year failure rate below one percent. In contrast to top heavy overhead-drive machines, this design gives the Bosch a very low center of gravity that makes it a breeze to handle. Bottom drive also provides full bowl access. With no obstruction you see everything that’s happening, so adding ingredients is easy as pie. And without a lot of meshing gear teeth, the Bosch is also exceptionally quiet.
“Strong and powerful, best on the market! Great price and great service with Pleasant Hill Grain Co.”

The Bosch mixer’s bowl is shaped like a large bundt cake form, a pioneering design that excels at both mixing and whipping. Twin whips mount on top of the narrow center column, driven from below by a stainless drive shaft. The whips float lightly against the bottom of the bowl, spinning rapidly as they rotate. And the bowl's shape ensures that your ingredients are mixed perfectly—lumps have nowhere to hide. The Bosch mixer's whipping action is so energetic it will make a cup and a half of meringue from a single egg white. And being only 10.6" tall with bowl mounted, all of this performance fits easily under your cupboards.
In addition to its stellar mixing and whipping performance, the Bosch Universal is legendary among bread lovers. It makes better bread, faster and easier, with its patented three-arm stainless steel BreadMaster dough hook—with the strength to knead up to fifteen pounds of tough dough at a time. The BreadMaster hook vigorously incorporates oxygen, processing 100% of your dough every four rotations. Other mixers merely stir the dough, never achieving the Bosch's level of gluten development. Proper gluten development produces light bread with great texture. Merely stirring the dough produces "brick bread." As many as eight loaves of fabulous fresh sandwich bread can be out of your oven in just 75 to 80 minutes!
Smaller batches too: Dough for up to eight 1.5-pound bread loaves can be made in a batch. And with the new dough hook extender (currently included free) you can make outstanding dough for as few as one or two loaves. When whipping, the Bosch whips pick up exceptionally small ingredient amounts thanks to the bowl's tubular bottom profile. The Bosch mixer's 6.5 quart bowl is made of super-tough, BPA-free polypropylene. More details are under the specs tab, above.
Gluten free? The Bosch Universal also provides the control you need to make delicious gluten-free recipes, tailored specifically to your family’s needs. Nothing approaches the tastiness of homemade and fresh!
“I'm thankful there are still places with good customer service. I feel I made a new friend and I will definitely recommend your company to others. You people are the best.”

This is my third mixer purchased to use primarily for bread (first two were a different brand). I've only made one 5 lb. batch so far, but I am very happy with the machine and the results. The machine does move a little during the heavier stages of mixing, but I'd consider that normal and not a concern---the feet keep it in place. Dough came together and achieved window pane quickly. I think this is the start of a long, productive relationship.14 out of 14 people found this review helpful. Did you?
She has been concentrating on sourdough recipes and this machine saves her time & muscles. It is the best mixer on the market. She is one happy camper!12 out of 12 people found this review helpful. Did you?
This mixer is wonderful for large batches of bread and cookies. We make a lot of bread, and now usually make four loaves at a time. I could never have fit that much in my Kitchen Aid, and it never would have had the power to knead that much. It is fairly loud, even on the lowest setting, but I suppose that is the price to pay to have a motor capable of kneading bread dough.
I don't think the Bosch works as well with smaller batches. My biggest complaint with it is the shape of the bowl. If making a cake, it is very tedious to scrape out the batter around the center post. Also, the batter gets into all the tiny grooves that hold on the mixing implement as well as the ridges along the top for locking on the lid. I preferred the smooth sides of the bowl that my previous mixer had. I also wish the bowl were stainless steel, so I could use the same bowl to let bread rise in the oven. As far as the beaters, the mixer only came with the dough hook and the wire whisks. If trying to cream butter neither worked well. A friend actually gave me the cookie paddles, which work much better for creaming butter and sugar together or for other mid-thickness batters. It is definitely worth purchasing this beater. The company should make this standard with all their mixers.
In summary, I'm glad I purchased this mixer for heavy duty work, but I still may buy a second, smaller mixer for cakes and other liquid-type batters.8 out of 8 people found this review helpful. Did you?
Love this mixer. I bake for a community center two to three times a week. I bake sixteen to twenty four 1-1/2 lb loaves each day. I also have the Nutrimill grinder and the combination has made my baking easier.8 out of 8 people found this review helpful. Did you?
I received a Bosch for a wedding gift 30 years ago. The plug started shooting sparks, so I replaced it. I use it several times a week. i live in a rural area, so I do all my own baking. My little next door neighbor calls it my cookie machine.8 out of 8 people found this review helpful. Did you?
This is my first mixer, so I can't compare it to others, but I am very happy with it so far. It even kneads soft pretzel dough, which is about the stiffest dough imaginable! And, what's also very important: It's easy to take apart and clean.8 out of 8 people found this review helpful. Did you?
Love the new mixer. I can make bread and rolls in 1/2 the time. I was also very happy with the response and shipping time from Pleasant Hill Grain.7 out of 7 people found this review helpful. Did you?
I've only had time to use my new mixer once, but was very pleased with the results. My friends loved the bread also. I hope to have a wonderful time trying lots of recipes.

We were concerned when comparing our old Bosch (lots of metal, SS bowls, etc) that we would not be as happy with the new, lighter Bosch. Boy, were we wrong - we love our new Bosch. Makes great bread, whips stiff cream very fast and with less noise. Cleans up quickly and easily. Made a very good decision.6 out of 6 people found this review helpful. Did you?
I've tried many mixers before, but the Bosch Universal Plus is the absolute best!!! My first try at mixing was a large batch of French Bread. The recipe was easy and it was great to have the convenience of being able to add the ingredients while the mixer was slowly mixing everything together. The dough turned out the perfect consistency on the first try. After the dough was raised I formed the baguettes and let raise again. The bread was wonderful and so was the machine!
