What is the answer for those who want homemade bread, but need more than one or two loaves at a time? I am an avid bread baker. With a large family, a bread machine is pointless, so I needed a good mixer that would knead the dough for me, so the only labor left on my part was shaping the loaves.
I first decided on a KitchenAid. However, I was disappointed that I could mix only two loaves at a time. I would mix a batch of dough, set it aside to raise, mix another batch, etc. As our family grew, I became more frustrated with this. My mother in law had a Bosch that she had owned for about 40 years. She told me that it would mix six loaves at once. I researched and found that she was right. After checking to see if there were other options, I decided a Bosch was what I wanted. I love my Bosch! It does handle six loaves (I do only five whole wheat). It does all the kneading and makes a beautiful loaf of bread.
The Bosch also comes with a blender. I've always owned a good blender, but after having bought my Bosch, got rid of it. I doubt there is a more powerful blender on the market!
The only thing I liked better about my KitchenAid was that I never had to scrape the bowl when making cookie dough. The Bosch requires it. Bread dough mixes fine without scraping, just not cookie dough.
