Wonder MIll Mixer vs Bosch Mixer

HI All,

I tried to do a search, and either the questions I am asking is not one that has been asked, or I am unable to search correctly. I am beating on the second , but I will ask anyway, and beg forgiveness if this has been addressed already. 

I currently have a KA stand mixer. I have loved using it, but do note that there are some minor issues ( not working well on smaller amounts of batter/dough and not managing rye doughs well are the two main issues) . I have long pined for a Bosch , after seeing one demo'd at Costco around the holidays once. IT promised to manage the rye dough AND be able to handle Grandma's Monster cookie recipe. 

Today I was daydreaming again and was looking up Bosch mixers on Amazon, and saw a Wonder Mill also. I googled it, and found some positive reviews, and no bad reviews- which makes me worried a bit. 

Does anyone here have experience with the Wonder Mill mixer, and maybe experience with a Bosch also to offer a comparison? 

I primarily use my mixer for sour dough bread, and over the holidays, I use it for cookies and Stollen, and other sweet breads. I would say it is used every other week. I might use a mixer that could manage rye breads more, as that is what I woudl really like to start making. 

Again, if this has been addressed already, please point me to the right place, and if not, I welcome any input.

I own a Wonder Mill Junior mill, and it is built like a tank. But I have no knowledge of their mixer.

The people at Pleasan Hill Grains sell both. Their support staff is extremely knowledgeable and friendly. They will give you good advice.

The wonder mill looks a peach! Same drive method as the Bosch, cheaper than the Bosch. Had I know of this brand I may have took a closer look. Seems to me, maybe, the patent ran out on the Bosch and wonder mill made a nice copy? Meanwhile I am liking my new Bosch.

Just my two cents... but my MIL was looking into the same thing last year. I've had my Bosch for a long time and it's been incredible with bread. Such a workhorse. But I told my MIL that I'd help her look into it just in case a Wondermix was better (I was kind of intrigued too, wondering if I needed to upgrade). We did some research and came across this post from a blogger I'd been following that really helped us -

My MIL ended up getting a Bosch Universal Plus (like mine) and has loved it too. While the Wondermix is cheaper and appears to do all that a Bosch can do, I beg to differ (no offense to Wondermix fans). I think Bosch is the better choice, especially for baking bread. I've had mine for years and it still works just as great as the day I bought it. Hope that helps!

p.s Some other baking bloggers I follow have been sharing Bosch Mixer specials... some good discounts now that the holiday season is starting. Might be worth looking into, especially if you've been "pining" for a Bosch for a while ;)
