I also have a kitchenaid which we all use frequently for just about everything else besides bread. However, after purchasing the top of their line double oven I am very disappointed in the quality and service from Bosch. Never had a repair.

In very compact kitchens, regular dishwashers can be too bulky to be practical. Small batches I think work better in the smaller KA, but there are those times when I triple a frosting and just cannot mix it in mine.

It has been on the ribbing along the top of the paddle for me. First off the Bosch range is beautiful.
