Looking for a Bosch Mixer/bread maker and wheat grinder.

I am looking to buy a used Bosch Machine Mixer and a good wheat grinder. Also any info on these machines now. I had a Bosch mixer in the 70's and a Magic Mill Grinder.

Here's a link to a 700W Bosch Universal now up for grabs on eBay:

Bidding closes Nov. 01, 2010, at 18:59:59 PDT. But if you're patient, you may be able to get one for peanuts -- I saw an 800W Bosch Universal a month ago on eBay with a "Buy It Now" price of $100.

I am watching Ebay. Would you be afraid to purchase a 20 year old one? She has all the attachments. Yes patience is the key!!!

... I'd give it a shot. The less you spend, the less you've got to lose.

Anyone have a whispermill grinder? I can get one used once and in the box for $178 plus shipping which comes to $190. It says it retails for $289.


Should I buy it?

I just found out that on Pleasant Hill Grains you can get a Bosh Universal Plus for $159.99 and then buy the food processor for $29.99 a savings of $80 I think. Then they have an attachment that hooks up to the Bosch Unit to Grind wheat for $129.95. For those looking to save money this is the way to go.



Now where is the best place for me to buy a good grain of wheat. I am in AZ.

The Pleasant Hill page I'm looking at says the Bosch Universal Plus is $359.99.  With the food processor it's $389.99

The Whisper Mill is no longer being made, the company folded, so something to think about before purchasing on Ebay, although Pleasant Hill Grains has some replacement pats. The noise level is about like the NutriMill.
