Every Kitchen Equipment maker claims to have the best machine, and that can make the selection process difficult. Until you discover The Bosch Mixer. Because Bosch's claims are backed by engineering realities the others can't match.

More Power: For starters, the Bosch Universal mixer has a 700 watt motor. Our biggest competitor, the sales-volume leader, calls their strongest model the "Professional." Its motor is only 525 watts. Universal's motor is 1.33 times stronger than their best. Power to mix better and last longer.

Stronger Transmission: Even more important than the motor is the transmission, which converts motor power into work. Our mass-marketing competitors build transmissions with inexpensive spur gears. The first shortcoming of spur gears is that they break under stress. Stress is a bowl full of bread dough or a triple batch of oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. Things you need your mixer to handle. Buyers tell us frequently that they're getting a Bosch mixer now because their other mixer, often brand new, failed.

More Efficient: The second major problem with spur gears is that even before they break, they transmit torque poorly. Torque is the ability to exert power at low turning speed — exactly what's required of a good mixer. The Universal's competition starts with a much smaller motor, then spends a big share of it on friction. Which is why many big mixers have surprisingly little oomph.

The Bosch Belt: Universal's transmission uses a belt drive design so strong that fewer than 1% have failed within twenty years. And that's twenty years of heavier work than most mixers see, because the Universal's reputation as a workhorse causes it to be purchased by a higher percentage of cooks who place high demands on their equipment. The belt drive also prevents motor failures from the heat that develops in the cramped gear enclosures of overhead drive machines.
Better Design for Better Bread, Total Versatility

The Total Kitchen Center: The Bosch Universal is a complete kitchen center -- the world's premier mixer, bread maker and blender in one outstanding machine. Available accessories extend its range of abilities to include food processing, grinding and more.

Better Gluten Development:
The Universal has achieved its dedicated following among bread lovers not only because it lasts, but also because it produces. It makes better bread, faster and easier, because no one else has the patented three-arm stainless steel BreadMaster dough hook design plus the strength to run it in up to 12 lbs. of tough dough. The BreadMaster hook vigorously incorporates oxygen as its unique design stretches and folds dough against itself, processing 100% of your dough every four rotations around the bowl. By comparison, 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. Bread from this powerful Bosch mixer needs to rise only once before baking, letting you make six loaves of fabulous fresh bread and have them out of the oven in just 90 minutes!

Mixing: Besides kneading dough, of course, you do want your mixer to mix, too and the Universal's mixing action is unexcelled. The bowl has a "tubular" bottom profile like a deep bunt cake form. Twin whips mount on top of the narrow center column, driven from below by a stainless steel drive shaft. The whips spin rapidly as they rotate, and the bowl's bottom profile ensures that every bit of your ingredients get mixed. This whipping action is so energetic it will make 1.5 cups of meringue from a single egg white.

Access and Stability: The Universal's bottom-drive configuration gives you total access to the top of the bowl. It also provides great no-tip stability through a low center of gravity rather than by adding a ton of weight to the base weight you have to deal with every time you move the machine. One of our Bosch customers saw the light when her top-drive mixer fell off the counter and damaged not just her linoleum, but her sub flooring too!

World-Class Blender: In addition to offering the finest bread kneading and mixing capabilities, your Bosch Universal also comes with an outstanding blender. Its 6-cup Lexan polycarbonate bowl is so strong it will snow ice cubes all day long. Chopping and pureeing are done to perfection at up to 13,000 RPM's. A built-in lid funnel lets you add liquid ingredients without stopping or removing the lid. The blender locks onto the Bosch mixer base, so it can't be bumped off during use.

Optional  Accessories: Further down this page you can see the wide range of optional equipment that demonstrates the axiom, "No One Does It All Like BOSCH!" From food processing to making pasta, the Universal gives you the tools to do the job right.

Quiet: Whether you're in the kitchen for an hour or a day, it's very nice to have quiet running machines, and the Bosch mixer runs at about half the sound level of competitive kitchen mixers.

The Warranty is Proof:
The Bosch mixer warranty backs up the claim that this is a better machine. The Bosch mixer motor and transmission are guaranteed for 3 full years! To get equal warranty coverage from the competition, you'd have to buy three of their mixers.

Bosch has produced over 240 technical and design innovations since the introduction of their first mixer in the 1950's. The fruits of this constant dedication to excellence show in today's superior Bosch Universal Mixer. Pleasant Hill Grain's low prices make it easy to put this mixer to work in your kitchen. Save money, time and labor while you enjoy creating foods bursting with fresh flavor and nutrition for yourself and your family!

You've gone out of your way to help me... It's been a pleasure to deal with you. Mona Baldwin, Mesa AZ

I'm so happy to have discovered Pleasant Hill Grain. Not only do you have an excellent selection and variety of quality products, but the prices and customer service are great. No hype, just good old fashioned integrity and service. My hat is off to your company and its principles. I'll recommend you to my friends and acquaintances. Catherine Arias, San Jose CA

Bosch Mixer:  Super Affordable at Pleasant Hill Grain!

More Powerful: The motor is the heart of the machine, and Bosch Universal's is bigger. While other brands use only 300-525 watt motors, the Universal's is 700 watts! Equally important is the high-efficiency Bosch transmission that transfers more torque to the job. The gears of lesser mixers are stripped by loads of heavy dough, but the Bosch Universal SHINES when the going gets tough!

Most Useful: Comes with great standard equipment, and no other kitchen system touches Bosch for available accessories. 'No One Does It All Like BOSCH' is more than a slogan, it's a fact. (All Bosch Universal accessories are displayed further down this page.) Bosch is the premier bread maker, mixer and blender.

Compact: Incorporating so many features and options in one well-integrated design produces the most efficient kitchen system. Eliminating inferior, limited-function machines makes more room in your kitchen, more space on your countertop. Base unit is 9" deep by 13" wide, and is only 10" high with bowl mounted so it fits easily under cupboards, and petite cooks can easily see over the unobstructed, low-profile bowl to see just what's going on. Weight with bowl and dough hook is 12.5 lbs.

Great Capacity Range: Six 2 lb. bread loaves can be made in a batch, yet the Bosch whisks will pick up the smallest quantities thanks to the bowl's tubular bottom profile. Five quart bowl is made of super-tough Makrilon and will hold up to 20 cups of dry ingredients plus 8+ cups liquid ingredients.

Warranty: 3 years on motor and transmission, 1 year on other parts.

Long Life: The Bosch transmission's 20-year failure rate is less than 1%!

Included Standard:

  • Patented Bosch "Pro" dough hooks for better kneading action, better bread.
  • Makrilon 5 Qt. bowl holds up to 12 pounds of dough, has splash ring and lid.
  • French whisks: Triple action turns a single egg white into 1.5 cups meringue!
  • Blender, 6 cup: Snows ice, cracks grains, purees fruits and vegetables perfectly.
  • Accepts all Bosch Universal System accessories (Displayed below)

Bosch Universal Food Processor

The Bosch Food Processor Attachment has the traditional food processor knife blades in the bottom of the bowl for chopping and mixing. Also included are 3 disks used at the top of the bowl: Slicing (reversible thick & thin), shredding and grating (reversible fine & coarse), and potato grating. Fits on the Bosch Universal's upper, high speed drive position (where the blender mounts.) May be operated with top-mounted disks or with bottom-mounted processor blade. 5 cup capacity. The Bosch Universal Food Processor lets you control food size by how long you run the machine. One of the great things about this food processor is its ability to make outstanding peanut butter very easily (see a peanut butter sample here.) The unique design of the food processing blades, combined with the power of the Universal mixer's 700 watt motor, turns peanuts into super-smooth peanut butter. For crunchy style, just toss in a few more peanuts toward the end.

Bosch Universal Slicer/Shredder

The Bosch Slicer/Shredder cuts foods as you feed them into its medium capacity bowl. It includes 3 disks: Shredding/Grating (reversible coarse & fine), slicing (reversible thick & thin), and french fry. The Slicer Shredder fits on the Universal's low speed drive, and has a 12 cup capacity. The Slicer/Shredder is a one-pass machine (no bottom blade), so it maintains uniform product size.

Whip Assembly for Bosch Universal Slicer/Shredder

New Item! Whip Assembly for Slicer/Shredder: Whip drive and single whip allows you to do whipping in your Slicer Shredder bowl. (Fits on the Slicer Shredder, available above.)
Selection Tips: Bosch Slicer Shredder vs. Food Processor

The Slicer Shredder and the Food Processor are the two most popular large accessories for the Bosch Universal Mixer. Customers who don't want to purchase both often ask us for help deciding which one would be better for them. Although they do many of the same things, there are differences. So here are some thoughts that may help you choose. The Slicer Shredder's 12 cup capacity is more than twice the Food Processor's 5 cups; that might matter if you need to do large batches. Both use stainless steel disks that mount just under their lids to slice and grate the same wide range of fruits and vegetables, with the difference that only the Slicer Shredder offers a french fry disk. The Food Processor also allows you to leave out the disks and instead drop in the bottom-mounted food processing blades which will let you cut foods into pieces larger than the Slicer Shredder does -- the longer you run the machine, the smaller the pieces become. Lastly, the optional Whip Drive shown above allows you to do small whipping jobs with the Slicer Shredder -- which can be very handy if your larger mixing bowl is in use. The Slicer Shredder is the more popular of the two, by a factor of about two-to-one. If you still have questions about these or any of the other Bosch Universal Mixer accessories, please give us a call and we'll be happy to help.

Bosch Universal Citrus Juicer

The Citrus Juicer Attachment for easily juicing lemons, oranges, grapefruit and large limes. The powerful motor takes all the hard work out of these fresh juices. Fits on the Universal's low speed drive.

Bosch Universal Stainless Steel Bowl (Original Style)

The Original Style Stainless Steel Bowl for the Bosch Universal Mixer has larger dough mixing capacity (14 lbs.) than the standard bowl because it doesn't have a center column. The dough hook drives from the bottom of the bowl. This bowl comes with its own dough hook, which does an outstanding job of kneading. Also includes splash ring and center cover, not shown. Fits on the Bosch Universal Mixer's low speed drive. Whips, whisks and cookie paddles cannot be used with this bowl. For mixing up the largest-possible batches of dough in your Bosch Universal, this heavy duty stainless bowl is just the ticket.

Bosch Universal Stainless Steel Bowl (New Style)

The New Style Stainless Steel Bowl for the Bosch Universal mixer has a center drive shaft, enabling the Universal's standard wire whisks and BreadMaster dough hook (as well as the new accessory cookie paddles) to be used in it. Capacity is 5 quarts, the same as the Makrilon bowl. This bowl is sold without dough hook, whisks or lid, because those pieces from the Universal's standard Makrilon bowl fit onto this bowl. (Lower photo shows the Universal dough hook in the bowl.) Fits on the Universal's low speed drive. The drive shaft detaches in seconds from below for quick, easy cleanup. Click for more photos showing the removable drive shaft. This new bowl is one of the most popular Bosch Universal Mixer accessories.

Bosch Universal Food/Meat Grinder 

The Food and Meat Grinder Attachment for the Bosch Universal mixer grinds and minces meats, stuffings, and virtually all foods. Comes with a 4.5 mm disk for general use; other sizes (listed below) are available to achieve any desired consistency The Universal is turned onto rear-mounted rubber feet, as shown, to operate the grinder. We've tested the Universal meat grinder side by side with a wide selection of competitive stand-alone meat grinders on the market, and the performance of the Universal unit towered over the rest. It really cranks out meat and other foods. For the best ground meat texture and easiest grinding, chill meats almost to freezing before grinding.

The Universal meat grinder also is the basic attachment for these accessories: Fruit and Berry Press, Grater for nuts and hard cheeses, Sausage Stuffer, Cookie and Pastry Press, and the Pasta Maker attachment. All of these accessories are described below.

Accessory Knives & Plates for Bosch Universal Food/Meat Grinder 

When you purchase the Bosch Universal Meat/Food Grinder, we include a 4-bladed knife and a 4.5 mm disk, a good size for making hamburger. (The millimeter size refers to the diameter of the holes in the disk.) The small 2 mm disk is for mincing. For large chunks, use the 8 or 14 mm disks. The 2-bladed knife makes larger chunks than the 4-bladed knife. If you grind a lot, you should have a knife for each disk because they'll develop a mated wear pattern over time and will cut best if kept together as a set. If you grind only occasionally, one knife will work fine for all disks, but you may want to carry a spare just in case.

Flaker Mill for Bosch Universal

Conveniently turn soft grains like oats into flakes for recipes and fresh cereals. Fellow Nebraskan Randy Watterman sent us these comments about his flaker: "Had our first batch this morning... it was wonderful! The flaker worked great and made a family sized amount of oatmeal in no time at all. The taste and texture was better than any already-rolled oats we've purchased in the past. Thanks again!" Unlike commercially-flaked oats that are paper-thin (and consequently mushy) this flaker will turn oat groats into thicker, chewier nuggets. And as Randy found, fresh is incomparably better, both in taste and nutrition, than hyper-processed commercial alternatives. Oat groats are oats with the hulls removed, and they're available from health food stores and food cooperatives (see links here for connecting with a regional food cooperative in your area.)

To use a flaker with your Bosch Universal mixer, we recommend buying the flaker and the Bosch adapter from the Family Grain Mill table on our Family Grain Mill page. Until recently Bosch offered the same high quality, German-made flaker (mfg. by Messerschmidt), but Bosch has dropped it from their line. The only difference in the FGM unit is the mount, and the adaptor takes care of that. This also allows you to use other FGM accessories on your Universal later if you want to. (Click here to see the Family Grain Mill adapter for the Bosch mixer and how to use it.)

New Bosch Universal Cookie Paddles

Great New Bosch Universal Accessory: Bosch recommends using the wire whips and batter whisks (which are shown below) for pourable batters. Heavier cookie batters can be mixed with your Universal dough hook, but now you have the ideal option: the brand-new Bosch cookie paddle! These snap onto your Universal whip drive in place of your whips and they carry a lifetime guarantee against breakage. So if you want to make a double or triple batch of chocolate chip oatmeal cookies and use margarine straight from the fridge, these paddles will mix them up without batting an eye. They're made of an extremely tough thermoplastic called Delrin. Shipping is free when purchased with a Universal mixer (or as part of any order over $50 total.) These new paddles have been moving faster than salmon patties at a cat picnic, and we recommend them highly.

Lifetime Warranty!

Bosch Universal Wire Whips and Batter Whisks

Wire Whips (DB3) come standard with the Bosch Universal Mixer. (Upper pair at left.)
Batter Whisks (DB2) have different spacing for thicker (but still pourable) batters. (Lower pair at left.)

Tip: Bosch recommends using the wire whips and batter whisks for pourable batters. The batter whisks (DB2's) are a bit stronger than the wire whips for "heavier pourable" batters, and until recently we recommended the DB2's for careful use with light to medium cookie batters not containing any stiff material (like unsoftened butter or margarine.) The new lifetime-warranteed Bosch cookie paddles (see them listed just above) have now replaced the DB2 as a MUCH better choice for all cookie batters. In our view, there is no good reason to purchase DB2's now that the MUZ6CP1 cookie paddles are available. For maximum whipping action in lighter foods, the original DB3 wire whip is certainly the best tool. Wire whips and batter whisks are not warranted because the Bosch is easily powerful enough to bend them if they're used in thick batters.

Bosch Universal Blender
(This blender is included with the basic Bosch Universal machine.)

The Universal Blender that comes with the basic Bosch Universal machine can also be purchased separately and will fit on all Bosch Universal machines, both current and older models. Lid with funnel cap is included but not shown. Tip: The blender lid doubles as a handy "wrench" that makes removal and replacement of the blade assembly fast & easy.

Just want to share my review of your company, service and product. In one word: Great! I bought the Bosch Universal mixer, and can only say good things about it. I had the 'major-brand-mixer-as-seen-on-all-TV-cooking-shows' but it constantly overheated on one loaf of white-flour bread, and finally the gearbox seized. I made a double batch as the first test of the Bosch and it didn’t bat an eye. I can now make batches of bread and freeze! Cinnamon rolls, here we come. I've shown the Bosch to people at work, and friends visiting our home -- they were all impressed. Thank you. Lars Widstrand, Lunenburg MA

Thanks for your pleasant and speedy service. I like the fact that you did exactly what you said you would do. I've been making wonderful whole wheat bread and carrot cake with my new Bosch mixer and grain mill and I'll recommend your company to anyone without hesitation. Paul Routledge, San Diego CA
