Replacement parts don’t actually have to replace a broken part. Get a second set of blades, beaters and bowls and you can use the same appliance for both meat and dairy prep.
My Braun food processor has been going strong since I got married. For all those years, everything I prepared in that food processor was considered to be “meat equipment.” And then I had an epiphany. Why not get another bowl, lid and S-blade (or whatever your favorite blade is) and make all my dips completely parve??
Or how about the mini chopper that comes with your immersion blender? You can get an extra of those and have one available for dairy when you need it! See where I’m going with this? Not comfortable using the same mixer bowl for dairy and pareve? KitchenAid and Bosch both have replacement bowls and beaters available.
And many appliances have extra add-ons that may not come with your original purchase. You can get cake paddles for your Bosch that will work on a heavier batters or cookies than the original whisks. And a citrus juicer if you tend to bake with fresh juice! Want to make homemade pasta? There are attachments for your KitchenAid mixer.
Of course, you need to make sure the part you’re buying is compatible with the model you have. Don’t just go by the pictures – check for part or model numbers. But get creative – there’s so much more your small appliances can be doing for you!
I always wondered why I need two bowls for my Bosch.
A lot of people say they make challa with the white bowl and the cookie hook. Is it the same as doing it with the silver bowl?
I make 5lbs of Challah dough in the white bowl all the time.
i broke my white bowl
trying to make a challah dough in it
but good luck
when I bought my bosch, the saleslady told me they had too many times, ppl coming in with broken bowl/hook/lid/ etc. because they used the white bowl for challah dough.
so in the long run, no you’re not gaining anything when you don’t get the silver bowl right away.
oh and btw, she also said to never mix challah dough on a high speed.
can ruin the motor
The center drive column in the white bowl means you can only fit a smaller dough than the metal bowl which has the bottom drive.

I put the metal beater from the white bosch bowl into my dishwasher and it now gets everything black.
