Having a big picture view can help you see how all the important elements fit together. That’s why we are here comparing Bosch, KitchenAid and Ankarsrum mixers because they each have different strengths that make them better for some types of jobs and worse for others.
In this article, we’ll take a look at these mixers side by side and give you an idea of what makes them each great for certain tasks. We hope that this information can help you decide which mixer is best for your needs!
Bosch: $350-600, depending how new or old it is and where you are buying it from. Also, if you are the adventurous type, there are tons of repair videos on YouTube on how to fix broken parts and make your Bosch mixer last even longer. However, Fixit Clinic cannot guarantee that they will be available in the future and so we are not specifically endorsing any of these DIY videos. We do not promote do-it-yourself fixes in lieu of visiting a professional and charging your Bosch mixer as instructed by Bosch as we have heard different reports about their success rate.
KitchenAid: $325 to $500, depending on the year that it was manufactured and where you are buying it from. If you are having trouble with your kneading attachment, there is a forum available for KitchenAid mixers.
Ankarsrum: Aus$420 (approx. US$320). It is the cheapest mixer in this comparison because it comes from Sweden. The power requirements for it are 230V AC, 50Hz and gives approximately 1HP output. It is currently only available in Australia, but there may be distributors in other countries who can help you get this mixer if you cannot find anyone near your area who stocks them locally or if they decide not to import Ankarsrum products anymore.
Ankarsrum: It has a tilting bowl design, which means that you can conveniently remove the bowl by slightly tilting it to one side. This also makes cleaning it a lot easier because you can detach the bowl (without unplugging it) and rinse the dough off in the sink. On top of this, its base is made of plastic instead of metal and so it is lighter than Bosch and KitchenAid mixers. Ankarsrum also came out in 1969, which was before KitchenAid started making their products!
Bosch: This mixer has a very powerful motor that starts at 350 watts and can go up to 600 watts depending on what your recipe calls for. It has a stainless steel bowl which holds up to 10 pounds of your dough recipe. This mixer’s base is made out of metal and it weighs almost 17 pounds. It has planetary mixing action, which means that the beater can reach every part of the bowl, even towards the sides. Another really cool feature about this mixer is that it has a delayed timer on its dough hooks which makes kneading bread dough much easier. You can turn off the timer once you know how long to mix your bread with its kneading hooks!
KitchenAid: With this brand, you can choose from 3 different sized mixing bowls: 5qt, 6qt and 8qt. This is in addition to their whisk, dough hook and flat beater attachments. Some of its popular features include planetary mixing action, a special folding blade and a flat beater. There are so many attachment options available for this mixer that there is enough versatility to go around! Its bowl can hold up to 12 pounds worth of bread dough.
Ankarsrum: The main feature that we love about this mixer is that it has a tilting design which makes cleaning the bowl easier and also makes it more versatile than other mixers. It has a power output of 1HP and is also very light in weight. It also has a delayed electric timer on the kneading hooks.
Bosch: This mixer feels much heavier than other brands because it is made from stainless steel and metal, making it more durable and sturdier. It has a planetary mixing action and comes with the power to go up to 600 watts. This means that it can be used to make extra heavy dough such as pizza dough or bread dough for content for food items like hamburger buns or breaded chicken pieces like wings! Not only does this mixer have planetary mixing action, but its bowl is large enough to hold almost 12 pounds worth of dough.
KitchenAid: This mixer comes with a folding blade and one of its most popular attachments is its flat beater. It has a planetary mixing action, making it easy to incorporate ingredients into the recipe you are mixing. It also has a timer that you can use to delay the mixing time after you’ve put your dough hooks on and know how long to mix for. It has 6 different mixing bowl options for your recipes, ranging from 5 quarts to 8 quarts.
Bosch: Bosch offers a 36 month warranty.
KitchenAid: KitchenAid offers a 4 year warranty. If you bought your mixer from Williams Sonoma, you can extend that warranty for an additional 4 years and it will cost you $40.00 USD to do this.
Ankarsrum: Ankarsrum offers a 1 year warranty which covers defects in materials and workmanship. If your mixer isn’t working properly, you’ll need to ship it back to Sweden at your own expense and they will repair or replace it as necessary. They may also ask you to pay the shipping costs of returning the product to your country if they choose to replace it instead of repairing it.
Bosch: For us, this is the best mixer because it has all of the features that we like and will make your life as a baker easier. The large bowl will make it easier to mix recipes that have more ingredients, and you can knead bread dough with its special folding blade! If you are looking for an inexpensive option which is durable and reliable, then this is definitely the one for you!
KitchenAid: For us, this is the best mixer because it has so many different attachments for recipes for sandwiches and cookies which will help set you up nicely if you need to make a lot of different kinds of foods. It has a larger capacity for dough than the Bosch mixer, making it a more viable option for you if you are looking to bake a lot of bread dough. Also, its delayed timer feature that allows you to put your dough hooks on and then delay the mixing time by up to 10 minutes is really useful!
Ankarsrum: This is the cheapest mixer in this comparison but it is also one of the oldest and lightest mixers. We would recommend this mixer if you don’t have much space to store your heavy duty mixer or you don’t need to make heavy dough often. It is not as durable as the other mixers, but it is a good deal!
Having used all of these mixers, we think that Bosch and KitchenAid are the best two mixers to choose. If you don’t have a lot of money to spend on buying a quality mixer, then the AnkerSrum is the one to go with. It may be lower in price than the KitchenAid but it is so much lighter that it really isn’t worth comparing because you will get its problems with storage and durability. If you are looking for a lightweight durable mixer that has good features, then we definitely recommend going with KitchenAid or Bosch!
Who makes ankarsrum?
Ankarsrum is a Swedish manufacturer of mixers. Their products are made for the everyday baker who loves to make delicious recipes at home. They have been making their products since 1946 and have a very clear mission statement: “Creating joy in baking”.
How much do ankarsrum mixers cost?
Ankarsrum mixers are more affordable than other commercial grade brands like KitchenAid and Bosch. This is because they are not as well known in the United States, so they don’t need to charge as much money for their products as other brands do! Having said that, Ankarsrum mixers still deliver great quality performance.
What’s the difference between an ankarsrum deluxe blender and their standard blender?
The deluxe model comes with more attachments than the other models, but all of them are compatible with this model! All of them come with a whisk, dough hook, flat beater and no bowl. The Deluxe model also comes with a tilting head which makes it easier to clean while it is in use. It also comes with a small grinding stone, a container for grinding lentils, nuts or coffee beans, and an extra jar for storing any leftovers.
What’s the biggest diffence between ankarsrum mixers and other brands (we’re looking at you kitchenaid)?
One of the biggest differences is that Ankarsrum mixers are not as well known to those living outside of Europe. This means that you can get a great quality mixer at a more affordable price than that of other well known brands like KitchenAid. Also, because it is not very well known here in the USA it doesn’t need to charge as much money as other brands do.
Which company stand mixer is the best?
We think that KitchenAid is the best stand mixer. It is a very well known brand, the attachments and accessories for these mixers is one of the most versatile, and it has a lot of good reviews from clients who have bought this brand of mixer.
What type of mixer is an ankarsrum?
Ankarsrum mixers are open body mixers which are made for everyday users who will be cleaning their mixer after each use. Because of this, the power cord is not removable from the mixer and it has a much shorter warranty than other brands.
How do I clean an ankarsrum?
The smooth non-slip mixing shaft can be cleaned with soapy water, however we recommend that you do not use metal tools to clean the shaft of your mixer as this may damage your unit. You can also use a dishwasher for easy cleaning. The head can be washed by submerging it into warm soapy water, gently squeezing out all of the excess water and wiping with a soft cloth afterwards.
The Bosch and KitchenAid mixers are both better choices than the other two. They are more powerful, they have attachments that are easier to use, and they come with a longer warranty. What if you don’t have a lot of money to spend on buying a new one though? The AnkerSrum is the least expensive but it is not as durable so we would not recommend it. The Bosch is lightweight and easy to store, but it does not have as many attachments as the KitchenAid and it doesn’t have a delayed timer which is one of the best features. The KitchenAid is also a very popular brand that has many good reviews from customers who use them on a daily basis.
