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 stand mixer 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’m delighted with the Bosch mixer. I find it to be far superior to other leading brands of food preparation machines. You answered all my technical questions and shipped the item promptly and exactly as promised. I will keep in touch with your website for other items.”– Jeanette Sullivan, CA
The newest model is the Bosch Universal Plus. Its 500 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.
“My bread is so much better. l get a much better mix and knead without all the frustration I had with my other mixer. Love it!”– Mary N., TN
The Bosch Universal'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 Universal'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 kitchen mixer 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 fourteen 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 nine loaves of fabulous fresh sandwich bread can be out of your oven in just 75 to 80 minutes! (We recommend hand washing the BreadMaster dough hook to keep the finish nice. Click here for a dishwasher safe stainless steel dough hook that's shaped just like the BreadMaster dough hook.)
Smaller batches too: Dough for up to nine 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 stand mixer's 6.5 quart bowl is made of super-tough, BPA-free polypropylene. More details are under the specs tab, above. Click here for a
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!
Reaching beyond the role of stand mixer, the Bosch Universal Plus is a complete kitchen center. Available attachments extend its abilities to powerful blending, food processing, grinding, juicing and more. By eliminating duplicate power units, you save money and kitchen space while using superior, German-engineered kitchen tools. Below, you can see a wide range of optional equipment. From food processing to pasta making, the Bosch Universal Plus offers the tools to do the job quickly, easily, and right. The Universal Plus is available with or without the blender; the mixer is the same either way, so you can always add the blender later if you wish.
“With twenty years experience in customer service with Fortune 500 companies, I find positive and memorable customer service experiences almost non-existence these days. It’s refreshing to deal with a company like yours!”– Randy Lutterman, WY

Note: The Bosch Universal Plus is rated as a 500 watt motor here in the U.S. The UL (Underwriters Laboratory) recently changed the way they rate appliance motors being sold in the U.S. market. As a result, the motor used in the Bosch Universal Plus mixer has been re-rated from 800 watts to 500 watts, but it’s actually exactly the same powerful motor that Bosch has used for years and years. The only change that has occurred is in the rating issued by UL.

The Food & Meat Grinder attachment for the Family Grain Mill includes 4.5MM disk for ground meat and a knife.

Spaghetti cutter attachment for Bosch Universal mixer. Spaghetti strip width is 1/16" (1.6mm). The adapter leg is not included.

These DB2 Batter Whisks are an alternative to the DB3 whips that come standard with the Bosch Universal Plus mixer. While the DB3 whips are perfect for light materials, the clustered wire arrangement of these DB2 Batter Whisks makes them ideal for thicker (but still pourable) batters. Because the Bosch Universal is easily powerful enough to twist them if they're used in batters that are too heavy or contain large thick chunks, though they're very durable for their intended use, they are not warranted. "Quantity 1" of this...(More info)
The Dough Glide pops over the top of the mixing bowl's drive shaft. The most common reason to use one of these is that with some recipes, dough that gets between the top of the column and the bottom of the dough hook hub can blacken, and that's prevented by the Dough Glide. Not for use with the wire whips, batter whisks, dough hook extender, cookie paddles or cake paddles. For use with the dough hook only. See the main product page for additional important details.(More info)
These new cake paddles with metal whip drive attach to the Bosch Universal Plus (or older style Bosch Classic) mixer, for making cake and quick bread batter as well as other pourable batters and frosting. They let you make better cake because they avoid incorporating too much air into the batter, which causes cakes to fall during baking. See the main product page for these cake paddles for additional important details.(More info)
In the Bosch Universal Plus mixer, Bosch recommends using the wire whips and batter whisks for pourable batters, not heavier mixes. The standard-equipment dough hook works great (and needs to be used) for very heavy loads of cookie dough. For moderate batches of cookie dough, these Cookie Paddles are ideal. Be sure to soften your butter before using the paddles. See the main product page for these paddles for additional important details.(More info)
