My solitaire bosch mixer is the best mixer on the market. Not only does it have all the attachments of a Kitchen Aid, but its warrantee is much better, lifetime in fact! The gears are built stronger, almost industrial strength. I personally have the blender attachment (which you cannot get with any kitchen aid), food processor, and juicer. They are are amazing pieces, which are part of my daily cooking routines even though it is just my husband and I. When we have large groups of people over, we enjoy using the Bosch for large quantities of mashed potatoes or several batches of cookies...all at once! My favorite recipe for homemade bread makes six loaves of the most amazing Orange Cranberry Wheat bread...EVER! I use the blender attachment to chop up the orange then add it to the mixing bowl with the other necessary ingredients. And like I said, the bowl is big enough to handle six large loaves of bread! It is such a must in every kitchen. With more attachments, a better warranty, a shiny stainless steel finish, it is a no brainer!
