It’s official, the new Bosch is named Vera!!! One person got the reference last week… But I know my readers are cool enough that more of you should know where the name came from. So virtual awesome points to anyone who gets it right!
Today I want to talk a little about the Bosch Universal blender! I use the bowl daily, and my husband uses the blender daily! I love it myself, but don’t use it quite as much as he does. He likes to make breakfast shakes. I remember when my parents glass blender fell and broke. When the plastic replacement arrived we all freaked out a bit, could it possibly work as well? And of course, because it’s a Bosch, it did!
Here you can see the NEW blender (on the left – borrowed from my sister) and the older blender (on the right – on Vera). The lid is a bit different in the new one, it clicks in to place nicer, but the shapes are totally the same. You can see all the recipes I use the blender for here.
The blender uses the same amazing motor the mixer uses, so its strong. I chops ice easily. I use the blender for lassi’s, milkshakes, grinding oatmeal for my chocolate chip cookies, dressings, etc… I LOVE this blender. It doesn’t spin as fast or have the horsepower that a Vitamix has, but it’s pretty darn amazing! I’ve never wanted or needed anything stronger!
I love that you can use the lid to grab those little feet on the bottom of the blender and help twist it on (tight) and off. Here is when I admit that I owned it for a few years before I figured that out though! In fact last week at my sisters I showed her how to use it (she didn’t know either) Brilliant I tell you!!!
Really there are only 5 parts to the blender. The plastic 6 cup jar, the lid, the rubber gasket seal and the blades. There is also a funnel for the lid that my husband accidentally destroyed it in the sink disposal… I’m ordering it today (along with another fun attachment I can’t wait to share with you!
what else do you want me to review? the sifter? food processor? meat grinder? pasta? there is just so much share what you want me to try?
I bought my own bosch universal mixer years ago, and I’m sharing it because I love the machine. Bosch did send me a new machine to try out, with no expectation to write about it. I am not being compensated for this review. but I am an affiliate and if you click over and buy something I do make some money, just FYI
