I swear, this post is not endorsed or supported by the Bosch company, but I honestly LOVE mine. I recommend them to anyone and everyone. I am posting this because before one of my best friends in college had one I had never heard of the Bosch mixer. I loved it so much that I got one myself. I have had mine for almost 10 years without any problems at all. No repairs, no issues. I just felt like I wanted to share this wonderful find with all of you in case you had never heard of the Bosch either!
Bosch has definitely come out with a newer model, so it looks a little different than mine does now, but it still has all the same features and I know it has only gotten better. Here is a video explaining the differences if you are curious.
The most amazing thing about the Bosch is that it has a cover! So, you can put any and all flour (or other dry ingredients) in with your cookies and you don't have to worry about the flour flying all over the place, making a huge mess, and ruining your recipe.
The Bosch also has two sizes of covers that fit within each other, so you can add an ingredient while the rest of your ingredients are still mixing together. And, it will keep things clean because the sides of your cover are still intact - Brilliant.
I also often use the inner, smaller cover as a place to rest my dirty spatula.
The Bosch is also a blender! So, you get two in one - a mixer and a blender!
The Bosch mixes up cookies, cakes, brownies, cupcakes, etc, but it also can mix up and knead bread dough (I heard the newer Bosch model can mix up 9 loaves of bread at one time) as well as mix up a meatloaf. I have even churned butter out of cream in my Bosch.
The Bosch has many paddles for mixing various items, such as a dough hook, cookie paddles, and regular mixing handles. Those are the three I have, but I know there are many more - I hope you can find what works best for you! The regular mixing handles and the dough hook come with a Bosch purchase, but the cookie paddles you do buy separately.
Now that you made it through my entire rant about how great the Bosch is, here is the my favorite Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe. Enjoy!
