I had one after nearly killing my kitchenaid.  Dont think it is a great mixer for dough. works great for cake and other mixable items.  have not even been able to sell it, so I guess word is out on these.

Mine works great for dough. Might be related to batch size. Also I have the SS beater instead of the original plastic/metal one.

No reason it wouldn't be good for dough, it's a clone of the Bosch Universal Plus with slightly less power (the updated model referenced above boasts an increase in power). They're known for how well they mix so I'm surprised to hear someone say otherwise. I actually own both products (Bosch and Nutrimill) and they do an equally good job mixing dough. I will say that I don't think either are good for really small batches, but I'm not sure I'd bust out the mixer for a pound of dough or less anyway. I just mixed up 12lbs of dough in the Bosch last Friday with the Artiste hook since my Bosch hook was temporarily MIA. Worked beautifully. Then I found the Bosch hook immediately after  :-D

I usually do 2 kilos all in. most of the time I am aiming for 6 x 250 balls.  will also do bread at ~1.25 kilo  x 2 loaf at a time.   60pct hydration for pizza and ~77 pct for bread. With that, the Artiste was working. sometimes binding, and the plastic bowl would flex. sometimes a lot. I dont think it mixed as well as the kitchenaid, but it also was not struggling as much as the KA with the same weight of dough. Most of the time, the dough just got on the hook and went round and round without any actual kneading. it would push the salt in front of it and never work it in.. adding olive oil and that never got mixed in either.  Maybe it was just my unit.


I know it is at another level, but the famag works much better for dough the way I am doing it.


on the other hand, the NMA was magic with cake batter, brownies and making frosting and whip cream.

Not that it matters, but it's more a clone of the Bosch Concept 7. The Universal series has a very conventional high-speed AC motor offset from the mixing bowl. I presume that the Concept 7 has a wide, squat motor with planetary gear reduction stacked on top, and maybe the Artiste does too. But I've not taken apart either one to see.

From the output shaft up, yeah, a clone.

It seems like the Artiste is a fine mixer.

Eric, I did take apart a Bosch Concept - not a fun job, the transmission had tons of different sized ball bearings, because while the motor turned at one speed, the drive mechanisms rotated at different multiples of that speed .

Yeah, I am sure it is not fun. They sure don't sell 'em anymore.

Given how much taller the Artiste is, it's possible that the motor is in a corner and the gearing is next to it.
