Bosch MUM46A1 Food Mixer Reviews
Most reviewers agreed that the Bosch MUM46A1 food mixer has a sleek look which gives it an attractive appearance when left set up on the kitchen counter. Other mixers, which are not as pleasant to look at, are often put away in a cupboard when not in use.
Lifting a heavy mixer in and out of a cabinet can be a real disincentive to using it. Having a mixer that can stay set up on the kitchen counter means that it will get more use and you will get more value for your investment.
This Bosch food mixer is also compact in size, taking up no more space than a normal sized cutting board, so it will not crowd out your kitchen workspace. The attachments store easily inside the bowl so they won’t be hard to find when you are ready to make your favorite dish.
It is also reasonably priced for an appliance of this kind. Bosch has a long history of building quality tools and appliances making this machine a good choice for reliability and performance. The Bosch MUM46A1gb stand mixer is also relatively quite when properly used reducing noise in your kitchen work environment.
Another advantage is that the lowest setting is gentle enough to stir fresh fruit like cherries into a mixing dough without crushing them. This can be an important consideration if holiday baking is one of your primary uses.
When using the Bosch MUM46A1 Food Mixer, it is important to be sure that the bowl is completely engaged with the motor drive in the base. A little extra work can be involved in getting the bowl to click into place completely. If it is not fully engaged, the machine will be louder and the attachments will not work properly. This can also cause the motor to have to work too hard and possibly damage the machine.
It is important to check that the bowl and attachments are engaged properly before operating the appliance. One other drawback is that the mixer is so versatile and easy to use, you might just gain a pound or two from all the delicious dishes you make as a result of having it.
For the price, the Bosch mixer is a versatile and reliable kitchen appliance for mixing, chopping and juicing. It is compact, attractive and easy to use. Its powerful motor is up to the challenge of all kinds of home kitchen cooking projects from making breads and deserts to soups and freshly juiced fruits and vegetables. It will provide years of reliable service.
