I can officially say I have owned and used both the Bosch mixer and the KitchenAid and....
I still love my 6 quart Kitchen Aid. I know my Bosch loving friends and rolling their eyes and thinking "How can you say that!" But I truthfully, as nice as the machine is, I still prefer my Kitchen Aid.
A GREAT feature of the Bosch, which is also a 6 quart machine, is that it really is TWICE AS FAST as my Kitchen Aid! Mixing and whipping in half the time, to get you in and out of your kitchen fast!
But the main feature I really liked on the Bosch was its open top design. But with a bit of practice, the Kitchen is just as easy to fill, even while mixing.
The Kitchen Aid also has greater speed control with settings from 1 to 10 whereas the Bosch only contains 2.
Bosch has many different attachments, just like the Kitchen Aid, that perform many different functions. But these attachments cost approximately 25% more. With many Budgets, including my own, being tighter, the increased cost is not economical.
My least favorite feature, and clincher for my own opinion on this machine, is that when filled with a full load, I found that the Bosch travels around my counter space. I actually found myself holding the machine in place to mix a full 4 loaf recipe. The Kitchen Aid, on other hand, is heavy enough to remain stationary and not move around, not matter how large the recipe.
These two final features are enough to keep me from converting to the Bosch fan club. I can now fully claim I am a Kitchen Aid fan. If you own a Kitchen Aid and feel like you might be missing out on something spectacular, my biggest suggestion is to “test drive” one. It may not be everything you thought it would be. And like me, you might end up disappointed.
