“It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a baker in possession of a good Bosch Mixer, must be in want of an attachment”
-Kari Kimball, pretending to be Jane Austin-
It’s that time of year again, time to prepare for the whirlwind of traditions, shopping, list-making, and baking. Yes, it’s only October, fall-break and Halloween are foremost on our minds, costumes, corn-mazes, and sugary treats are looming. But we all know with the passing of Halloween we enter second gear, that blur between Halloween and Turkey Day. Then it’s warp speed ahead, holiday plays, school concerts, piano recitals, parties, shopping, baking, more shopping and most of all lists. Lists of gifts, and groceries, and schedules.
I think we should get started on the most important list now, no time like the present. So get out your pencils and start your wish list. What do you want this year. Be prepared when your significant other asks what you would like for the holidays. If they need a subtle hint then print your list out and paste it on the bathroom mirror! Missing a significant other? Then it’s your job to take care of you, step up to the plate and get yourself the gift that you want! It doesn’t matter if it’s smoothies or pasta you have on your mind, you deserve the best, and Bosch Mixers is here to help.
Many of you already have a Bosch Mixer, that’s why you’re reading our blog, but if you just happened to land on our page then welcome! If you’re looking for a great mixer then you’re in the right place. The Bosch Universal Plus Mixer comes in two great colors, white and black. Both mixers have an amazing 800w motor, bottom drive and a wonderful open-top bowl with a lid that closes completely. No more flying flour. So powerful, and it’s easy to add ingredients to the bowl.
The Bosch Mixer is strong enough to knead 100% whole-wheat bread dough. (Most other mixers will void your warranty if you are mixing 100% whole wheat). The black mixer comes with a beautiful stainless steel bowl, isn’t it pretty? The white mixer comes with a white plastic bowl with the lip. The stainless steel bowl is available to purchase, see #13 below.
The big news for both of these mixers is the recent price drop, unlike anything we’ve ever seen before. It’s like Black Friday every day here at Bosch Mixers! Why spend money on a mixer that won’t last when you can get one of these beauties that will be loyal for years to come?
