Summary: I love this attachment for my bosch! I was a little skeptical at first because the blender does such a crummy job, but decided to try it anyway because I don't have room in my kitchen for another giant appliance. This food processor is a pleasure! I find the mixing bowl (that comes with the base) particularly annoying to clean (I do large batches of wet bread dough and dough gets in the shaft.
Summary: I've only owned a few low-end food processors before, so this is a major step-up for my kitchen. I love that it harnesses the power of my Bosch Universal and makes it a true multi-function machine and workhorse. I've made creamy-smooth hummus, chopped chickpeas for falafel, and will make salsa with it tomorrow - why dice by hand for something like salsa when I'm going to cook it down in the end anyhow?
Summary: This item seemed flimsy and I particularly didn't like plastic piece required for the discs always caught and trapped large amounts of whatever you are grating -- especially cheese, which made it very difficult to clean. Also, I would have really liked a FF disc added to this.
Summary: I love my universal bosch mixer. I got this b/c my mom had one years ago, but the design is different and the food gets stuck in the food processor ring that attaches the blade. It really could just be the attachment without the ring. I wish they would change it, but it does a good job shredding cheese, vegetables and nuts.
Summary: My wife loves the Bosch system, but the food processor volume is smaller than what she is used to, and it does make some recipes and larger batches more work than the stand alone processor she used previously.
