This is an R1 clearance item. Please check the tables below to see how we rate our clearance items.
The Stainless Steel Bowl (MUZ6SB4) for the Bosch Universal Plus mixer (also fits the earlier Bosch Universal Classic mixer) has a polypropylene center drive shaft column, enabling the Universal's standard wire whisks and BreadMaster dough hook (as well as the accessory cookie paddles) to be used in it. This bowl is sold without dough hook, whip drive or whisks, and those pieces from the Universal mixer's standard plastic bowl (new or older models) fit onto this bowl.
This bowl fits on the Universal mixer's low speed drive (the same place the standard plastic bowl mounts). Because it was originally designed for the Universal Classic mixer, when it's used on the newer Universal Plus mixer this bowl does not lock onto the mixer base and will wobble just a little with heavier loads, but this doesn't affect operation.
The drive shaft of this stainless bowl detaches in seconds from below for quick, easy cleanup.
Capacity is 6.5 quarts (approx. 15 lbs. of dough).
The accessory bowl scraper should not be used with this bowl because the fit of the scrapers is too tight and could lead to excessive loading on the motor and transmission.
Splash ring note: This bowl has four lugs at the top of the bowl for attachment of the splash ring, which means if you have the older "Classic" model Universal mixer (model 6622 or 6610) this bowl will work on your mixer, but you'll need to order a newer-model four-pin splash ring for use with this bowl. The four-pin splash ring comes standard with the Bosch Universal Plus mixer. The splash ring that comes with the "Classic" Bosch models has three pins, rather than four.
It's important to note that even when you use the correct splash ring with this bowl, while the ring will fit over the bowl's four pins, the ring will not lock into place at all. It will work fine that way with all but the largest loads, but if you have a Universal Plus mixer and want a stainless bowl with locking-on lid, you'll want to instead order Bosch bowl MUZ6ER2; that bowl locks onto the base of the Universal Plus mixer and comes with its own splash ring that locks onto the bowl. (The MUZ6ER2 bowl does not fit the older Classic model of the Universal mixer.)
To be sure you get the right item, please check thebefore ordering.
“This stainless bowl is very sturdy and easy to clean. I like the quick and easy release feature for the center column. Makes it easier to clean than the older style plastic bowls. It's worth the extra to upgrade.”

Expanded Ratings Descriptions
|R1||Very close scrutiny is required to tell that the item isn’t brand new. Working surfaces may show slight wear; for example, the bottom-inside of a Bosch mixer bowl may show swirl marks because Bosch mixer whips are designed to “float” against bottom of bowl. Non-working surfaces (cabinet, control panel) look essentially new. Carton may not be perfect.|
|R2||Typically has a small scuff or mark on a non-working surface like a mixer cabinet or the top of a pressure cooker lid.|
|FR||Mostly returned items which have been brought fully up to new-equipment performance specs at the factory.|
|D||Demonstration items have been operated briefly at Pleasant Hill Grain.|
|DIS||These items have never been used but we no longer sell them at full price in our store because it was discontinued by us or by the manufacturer.|
|U||Has had light use.|
|SDB||Has moderate damage or blemish on a non-working surface, such as a scratch or dent in the housing, or paint blemish.|
|NOS||A brand new item that isn't the newest model.|

By Rosalie A. in FL on 7/5/2016 - Verified BuyerMy Bosch is about 20 years old and I prefer this style to the new one. I am very excited to use this bowl along with the paddles and whips I purchased. So much easier to use than the other stainless steel bowl I have. It was definitely worth buying it. I love my Bosch and all of the accessories.2 out of 2 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By Maxine D. in SK on 12/31/2017 - Verified BuyerI have an older Bosch mixer that still works great and needed to know if this bowl would fit on my Bosch. I got an immediate response from them and my purchase was made in a very timely manner. I live in Canada and they helped me with making the purchase. One thing that would make things easier for Canadians is if the payment was set up to include Canadian purchases. I could phone them though and make the purchase in that way. I would highly recommend buying products from Pleasant Hill Grain.1 person found this review helpful. Did you?
