Bosch Universal Plus attachments in Toronto?

October 13, 2012 - 8:59am -- damnbiker

Hi all, I recently found a great deal on Kijiji for a Bosch Universal Plus and Nutrigrain mill, both brand new! The down side, the Bosch only came with the whisks and dough hook. I'd like to get the mixing paddles with metal attachment head, and I'd prefer to buy it in store if possible. Does anyone know if there are any brick and mortar stores in the GTA where I can buy these? I've found a few online Canadian sources, but would rather not pay for the shipping.

 

Thanks in advance!

Bosch Problems

September 25, 2012 - 4:12am -- TastefulLee

Hi. I recently acquired a Bosch Universal (not Plus) mixer. It is in almost pristine condition. I got it because I have recently been diagnosed with a disc herniation and can no longer make our bread and bagels by hand. 

I have to say I am not impressed. The bowl doesn't seem to lock in place and the dough hook didn't even mix my bagel dough much less knead it. The whole unit (bowl and hook)seemed to just twirl around at the same speed and sort of push the ingredients around the bowl. 

Has anyone else had this experience, and know what I may be doing wrong?

Looking for a used mixer

Hi

I am looking for a used  (but in good condition) 220V Bosch Universal or DLX mixer. The Bosch is my preference (with blender). If anybody has one for sale or knows somebody who may have one, please let me know. The 220V is the tricky part; I am moving from the US and so the 120 will not be useful. (don't want to do the adaptor and such)

What would best serve us? Bosch or DLX?

I know this is a question that has been bouncing around countless times on countless boards (because I've read A LOT of postings), but I'm still stumped -- and have to make a decision fast because of a very sweet thing my husband did.

For a little background, I've been baking our bread for almost a year now, after receiving (and being inspired by) a beautiful whole wheat loaf from a neighbor who owns a Bosch. We've been using a Zojirushi to do the hard work, though I take the dough out for its last rise and finish it in the oven.

Stand mixer query

Large mixers are very rare in Japan. None are offered in the major electrical goods shops, probably because kitchen space is at a premium. I saw a 'DeLonghi' in CostCo, once, [about $250] and recently came across the 'Bosch Compact' [about $400] in a baking supply store. That's it! CostCo Japan hasn't stocked any large mixers for the past 8  to 12 months

Whole Wheat/ Whole Grain French Bread, Ciabatta, or similar bread

I have been making 100% whole wheat bread (both with hard red and hard white wheat) for quite some time.  My family loves the loaves, and I love the ease of baking using my Bosch Universal.  (I have rheumatoid arthritis, and I'm unable to knead by hand.)  However, I want to branch out into French bread, Ciabatta, artisan bread or something smiilar.  Has anyone successfully made this type of bread 100% whole grain using a Bosch or similar machine?  Please share your recipes.  I would be most grateful.  Thank you, Sherri
