Bosch Universal Plus Mixer with Stainless Bowl, Black
This mixer is identical to the standard Bosch Universal Plus mixer, except that it has a stainless steel bowl and black and gray motor base, and it does not include the standard plastic bowl. The stainless bowl, when purchased separately, retails for $169—so its inclusion with this mixer is a tremendous value!
When ordered with the stainless bowl, the mixer includes all items that come when the mixer is ordered with the plastic bowl (except for the plastic bowl).
The Bosch Universal mixer has a special reputation among discerning cooks. It thrives on heavy tasks that will break conventional mixers down within a few uses, and Bosch offers advantages found in no other machine!
Some companies sell mixers based mainly on highly paid endorsements and continual ad campaigns. Bosch, on the other hand, doesn’t advertise this mixer at all. The success of the Bosch Universal Plus mixer has been growing for decades based entirely on its reputation for better performance. Instead of paying millions each year to housewares celebrities and cooking shows, Bosch puts their money and effort into engineering advancements and quality of construction. Continual refinement has made today's Bosch Universal a kitchen machine like no other.
The newest model is the Bosch Universal Plus. Its 500 watt motor has a new design with four times the motor life expectancy... and it was known for its longevity before. Just as importantly, it has a unique transmission that gets the motor’s powerful torque to the bowl better than other mixers do. Other updates include suction cup feet and a pop-out drive shaft for fast, easy cleanup. An additional speed was added, while increasing the speed range with a lower low gear and a higher high gear, still including the momentary pulse feature. The advantages of the Universal Plus over common mixers are now greater than ever.
There’s no overhead gearbox with the Bosch, because its power comes from below—a design that has big advantages. The base of the machine provides the space to transmit motor power to the bowl using a belt rather than gears. The small plastic gears in overhead-driven machines break under heavy work loads, they transfer power poorly, and the heat that quickly builds up in their tight enclosure causes premature failure when worked hard. The Bosch belt efficiently transfers far more torque, runs cool, and is fantastically durable, with an amazing twenty-year failure rate below one percent. Unlike top heavy overhead-drive machines, this engineering gives the Bosch a very low center of gravity that makes it a breeze to handle. Bottom drive also provides full, open-top bowl access. With no obstruction you see everything that’s happening, and adding ingredients couldn't be easier. Without a lot of meshing gear teeth, the Bosch is also a very quiet machine.
“Convenient, easy to clean, very powerful.”– Barbara K., TX
The Bosch Universal's bowl is shaped like a large bundt cake form, a design that excels at both mixing and whipping. Twin whips mount on top of the drive column, turned from below by a stainless drive shaft. The whips rest 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 powerful it will make a cup and a half of meringue from one 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 superior bread, faster and easier, with its patented three-arm stainless steel BreadMaster dough hook—with the strength to knead up to fourteen pounds of dough that has a hydration of 60% or more, at a time. The BreadMaster hook vigorously incorporates oxygen, processing 100% of your dough every four rotations. Other mixers just stir the dough, never achieving the Bosch's level of gluten development. Proper gluten development leads to light bread with ideal texture. Merely stirring the dough produces "brick bread." As many as eight loaves of delicious 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 as many as eight 1.75-pound bread loaves can be produced in a single batch. And with the 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 bowl that comes standard with the Bosch Universal Plus mixer on this page is stainless steel. 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 beats the tastiness of homemade and fresh!
Kneading very low hydration dough? The center-column bowl included with the mixer on this page is perfect for making large batches of cookie dough and whole wheat bread dough (up to 14 pounds) as well as smaller batches of low hydration dough like challah or bagel dough (up to 10 lbs). For large batches of low hydration dough, however, we recommend using the ER1 stainless mixing bowl. A full 14 lbs of dough with a hydration as low as 40% can be kneaded in the ER1 bowl. The ER1 bowl has been in service for 35+ years and is designed specifically for kneading a large volume of extra heavy dough.
Extending beyond the limits of a simple stand mixer, the Bosch Universal Plus is a complete kitchen center. Available attachments let you do 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 accessories. From food processing to pasta making, the Bosch Universal Plus offers the tools to do the job quickly, easily, and properly. 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.

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.

For maximum whipping action of lighter foods in the Bosch Universal Plus mixer, these original-equipment DB3 wire whips are ideal for pourable batters and egg whites. Because the Bosch Universal is easily powerful enough to twist them if they're used in batters that are heavier or contain large thick chunks, though they're very durable for their intended use, they are not warranted. See the main product page for these whips for additional important details.(More info)
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)
The Easy Scrape hand scraper is designed to fit your Bosch mixer bowl perfectly. Because each of its four corners has a different curve radius it will also fit most of the pots and pans in your kitchen, and its composition provides a perfect combination of stiffness and flexibility. A ridge molded into the back side makes it easy to grip even when oily or wet. Made by L'Equip.(More info)
