In Love With My Bosch Universal Plus!

My daughter, the lawyer, and her fiance, the brilliant MBA candidate, bought me a Bosch Universal Plus for my birthday.  Today, I put it to good use making Bernard Clayton's Marbled Bread - a tri-colored (and flavored) bread.  Previously, I relied upon my KitchenAid Pro 6 to make everything.  Resting my hand on top of the motor housing, I would pray that it would live through the bread-making process.  It has survived.  Barely.  Now, I am a lover of baking.  Cakes, cookies, you name it.  I, like all of you, love making bread.  It has been a passion as well as therapy.  Last year, while participating in the testing for The New York Bakers Jewish Bakery Book, I lost both of my parents within five weeks of each other.  And so began the therapy.  I began making bread every day.  Never less than two loaves.  As you can see, when I say my KitchenAid has "survived" it truely has. BUT, all that being said, the Bosch Universal Plus is a dream.  Quiet, powerful, easy to use and to clean.  I would highly recommend it to anyone who is considering their next "bread" machine.

I aspire to someday own one also. Currently I do have a Kitchenaid which was my beloved Grandmother's. She was an incredible cook and baker. It is satisfying to know that she would be proud of the cook and of the woman I have become. I always feel close to her when I'm in the kitchen. One day I will save the Kitchenaid for light duty recipes and use a Bosch for the bread as I too worry over the motor.


Enjoy!

I am sure your Grandmother must smile every time you use her KitchenAid.  The fact that you have and value it is surely an indication of the wonderful qualities you possess as a person.  All my best to you!  Let me know when you make your Bosch purchase and please share your thoughts!  Best regards -
