Can The Bosch MaxxiMUM Kitchen Machine Really Offer 120 Processes With Ease?
Kitchen machines come in all different shapes and sizes; some are compact, basic options for the occasional baker and others, like the Bosch MaxxiMUM Kitchen Machine are much bigger, more powerful beasts that promise great processes for great produce.
This food mixer has a range of features such as the 1600w motor and easy-lift arm, is able to hold 3.5 kg of cake mix for large quantities, comes with a range of attachments for diversification and also has some interesting technological aspects to ensure the best result possible with the least effort.
The promise of up to 120 different functions with this product is a little at odds with that of “no limits to your creativity in the kitchen” but surely that depends on the cook.
What benefits can this Bosch MaxxiMUM heavy duty mixer offer to buyers in need of a strong, multifunctional kitchen aid?
The specification for this device shows that it is all about high quality parts for a great result. The large 5.4L bowl is made of brushed stainless steel and there are plenty of extra attachments to increase the product’s versatility – the stirring whisk, beating whisk, high-performance kneading hook, blender and continuous shredder. In most cases, buyers seem to be pretty happy with all of the parts and there is no obvious weak link in the bunch.
The reliability of these parts means that there should be plenty that this Bosch MaxxiMUM Kitchen Machine can tackle but the ability to create great, smooth mixtures also comes down to the power. There are seven speed settings here, including a pulse setting, and there is even a 3D planetary mixing action for the best movement.
This power could be too much to handle in some machines but here it is dealt with brilliantly through the tough materials and the weight of the machine, plus the rubber feet, means that it stays in place.
Another important aspect with this machine is the sense of user confidence that it can give with all the user-friendly features and materials. The bowl has two handles and a spout for great ease of use, the is an auto-cable rewind, the blender is made from Thermosafe glass and there is even a sensor control for the whipping and dough kneading to maintain the right effort for the right consistency.
The inclusion of these parts adds to the enjoyment factor with this machine because buyers know they can try different things without fear of damage of failure. This means plenty of soups and dense fruit cake mixtures.
Are there any problems with this Bosch MaxxiMUM 1600W Kitchen Machine that limit its appeal to home cooks?
At the time of writing this review, this Bosch mixer had a customer satisfaction rating of 4.8 out of 5, which means that the vast majority of buyers are very happy with what they have received. A powerful motor, extra-large bowl and a range of attachments does mean that this machine is a little on the heavy and bulky side, however, and storage can be an issue if buyers don’t want to leave it permanently out on the work top.
There have also been a few minor criticisms about the instruction book and the fact that the edge of the stirrer pushes mixture out of its reach on occasions, but neither are strong enough to detract from all the benefits seen to the point that buyers give the machine anything less than 4 stars. Some wonder if a lack of instructions may limit the ability to perform those 120 processes but there is still plenty that can be achieved.
Summary: does this lack of negative feedback mean that the Bosch MaxxiMUM mixer is highly recommendable to all?
There are lots of positive, 5 star reviews for this mixer that are highly encouraging for buyers that may be keen on this model but, despite all the praise for the ease of use and the quality of the parts, there are still many users talking about this model’s worth as a “semi-professional” mixer rather than one for beginners.
There are many different processes that can be attempted with this versatile Bosch food mixer and all its different parts but there is also a lot to get to grips with and it could be too much for the casual baker that doesn’t need 3D movements and sensors.
