The Bosch Compact Mixer is a 400-watt mixer that can handle a maximum of eight to 10 cups of flour. Although it does not handle the heavy batches of dough that its counter part does, it is perfect for the smaller batch. The 4 qt bowl is ideal for smaller cooking projects such as egg beating, cake mix, and small desserts. This electric mixer comes with a whip, batter whisks and a stainless steel dough hook. Perfect for the couple and small family. It takes less space and an excellent ecnomical alternative to the Boxch Universal Mixer. Additonal attachments include blender, shredder, slicer, juicer, meat grinder and more which can easily turn your machine into the perfect cooking aid.
