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?

HOBART KITCHENAID MIXER EXCELLENT CONDITION WITH ALL ATTACHMENTS

September 24, 2012 - 6:04am -- TastefulLee
Forums: 

Kitchenaid HOBART (i.e. it can actually handle dough kneading) Mixer in excellent condition. Comes with bowl shield, paddle & whisk attachments, and dough hook, plus 5 quart stainless steel mixing bowl. Photos are available upon request.

Beautiful off white color with very few blemishes. Simply stated it’s a workhorse.  Lack of counter space near an outlet and a recent lumbar disc herniation make it necessary for me to say goodbye to this reliable and favored member of my appliance family.

How To Make A Dough Mixer/Kneader ?

July 21, 2012 - 7:37pm -- abrogard

We are working with batches of dough that fill a 20 litre bowl.  About 5.3 US gallons I think.  

That is as much as we can handle: mix up, knead.  It gets very stiff, pretty hard work.

So we'd like a machine but commercial machines this size cost thousands of dollars, it seems: http://www.foodequipment.com.au/downloads/pricelist/W_201205_R-PRICE_FED_AUNZ_v11mR3a_A4.pdf

Dough Mixer

June 20, 2012 - 5:46pm -- chykcha

Hello everyone, it's been a while since I have posted here. I saw many questions here about dough mixers, some of them unanswered. So when I was presented with the same challenge, I decided to post my experience, in case anyone finds it helpful.

Kitchenaid Artisan Mixer Problems with Kneading

June 12, 2012 - 7:12am -- TastefulLee

Hi. I have owned a Kitchenaid Artisan Stand Mixer with a twisting lock bowl for about 3 years. I have used it successfully for soft doughs such as cookies, and general mixing purposes.

Since I began making bread about 7 months ago I have tried to use the dough hook for several different recipes of several different hydration levels, and every time I have the same problem - once the dough starts to come together it the adjustable arm (the one the dough hook is inserted into) begins to float wildly about, even though I have the switch in the locked position.

I am looking to buy a used Magic Mills Assistent mixer.  I have been doing a lot of reasearch on different mixers for dough and everything I have read leads me to believe that this mixer is the best including reliability.  Anyone selling one?  Let me know on this post or you can also email me at mikewildt @ gmail.com .  Thanks!
