Starting in 1952, Bosch Universal mixers have been providing quality and reliable help in the kitchen. With no overhead motor allows for a larger access to the bowl for your ingredients while running. There are 4 suction cup feet that provide extra stability. The bowl is ergonomically designed for easy grip. It is top rack dishwasher safe and the shaft is now removable for easier cleaning. The splash ring is curved for extra volume.
The Universal Plus comes with the dough hook & extender and wire whips & plastic driver. The patented dough hook is designed to be similar to the two handed kneading method, by stretching, folding & tucking. It kneads 100% of the formed dough every 4 rotations, developing the gluten more effectively. The 800 watt motor allows the transmission to provide the torque needed to mix/knead up to 15 pounds of dough. The wire whips incorporate air masterfully with its triple whipping action. With the 2 wire whips rotating independently while rotating 360°. The whips are delicate enough to whip 1 egg white or 1/4 cup whipping cream to making 10 pounds of mashed potatoes. It can also be sued to make waffle batter and shredded meat.
The dough hook is intended to be used to knead doughs and to mix large batches of cookies, candies and pastry dough. Designed to replicate hand kneading. Also when adding hard items (nuts, chocolate chips, dried fruit, hard butter or shortening, hardened brown sugar, etc) to batters. Best to used speed 1 and/or 2. The dough hook extender can be used for kneading batches from 1 to 14 loaves. It improve kneading in every batch.
The twin beating whisk (wire whips) is intended to used for very light substances (cream, egg whites, sauces, batters & light pastry dough that are thin enough to pour. It can also be used for mashing soft, cooked potatoes and shredding pressure-cooked meats. You can used with either the plastic or metal whip drive. Good to used speeds 1 to 4.
Other attachment for the bowl are Cookie Paddles and Cake Paddles. Both must be used with the metal whip drive. Cookie Paddles are designed for medium to thick batters, frosting or cookie doughs. The right speeds to use are 1 to 3. Cookie Paddle tips: ALWAYS use soft butter, for large batches of cookie dough switch to dough hook after creaming the butter & sugar. Cake Paddles are designed for thin to medium thick batters (cakes, frostings, muffins & non-yeast quick breads). The right speeds to be used are 1 to 3. Switch to dough hook when adding ingredients such as raisins, nuts, oatmeal, etc. or making extra large batches. ALWAYS use soft butter.
