Bosch MUM6N10UC 800W Universal Plus Stand Mixer
Bosch MUM6N10UC Universal Plus is a 6.5-quart capacity, 800-watt power stand mixer with nice and user-friendly features like letting you put the ingredients with the bottom drive. It includes the cake paddles, cookie paddles with metal whip drive, wire whips with plastic whip drive, dough hook, dough hook extender, two-piece pouring shield, a lid and a bowl scraper. The whole unit is quite easy to clean as the bowl is safe to be put in the dishwasher, the drive shaft is detachable and a lightweight plastic bowl with a handle that is easy to hold, which is also BPA-free (anything that comes in touch with food). It is capable of handling any whipping job with ease, thanks to the triple whipping action offered by the efficient double beaters. If you’ve cooked a whole chicken you can shred it easily, mash as much as 10lbs of cooked potatoes, or do very small jobs like whipping an egg white. 800-watt motor and the belt-driven transmission offer a lot of torque for whatever you may want to prepare or cook.
You will be able to knead as much as 15 pounds of dough for bread or mix lots of ingredients for your cookie or cake in one go. You can easily make fresh pasta, juice oranges and grind meat with different accessories and attachments provided or the optional ones you can get additionally. Bosch Universal has about 64 years of history, with products that are known to be great quality, offering superior reliability and performance, and this stand mixer making your food prep much easier in the kitchen- acting like an all-in-one kitchen machine. It has a unique design of separate motor that is not in your way, making it light in weight and compact in size. You can cream butter, mix cookie dough and medium to thick batters with the cookie paddles and you will not get much air in when performing the task. You will make great pancakes, muffins and quick bread as the dough will be at jut the right density and texture, and you’ll not get anything hard. You can attach the bowl scraper straight into the metal or plastic whip drive to be able to clear the sides of the bowl properly and center the column when you’re mixing.
It comes with a very decent dough hook that actually imitates the movement of your hands when you knead dough, when stretching, tucking, and folding, so it will ensure the development of maximum amount of gluten. You can use flour of your choice- white or whole grain and make anything between a standard loaf of bread all the way up to 14lbs loaves. Although it is quite powerful with a fair amount of torque, and letting you choose from four speeds and pulse, it will stay put with the 4 suction feet underneath. You can purchase any accessory or attachment you wish, to use this great stand mixer as a citrus juicer, meat grinder, slicer and shredder and pasta maker. Price is a bit high but the customer reviews are very positive and as a very functional powerhouse it seems to be very much worthy of the higher price tag, promising many long years of efficient operation- actually forever, without slowing down or shutting down and if it ever gets hot, which we very much doubt, it includes the overload protection. It is made of plastic but rather solid plastic so you should not worry about the build quality or durability, and the good thing is it is lightweight and you can put it away for storage if you don’t have a lot of space on your counter, or if you are not keen on the design.
