The Bosch Universal Plus Kitchen Machine

Bosch's latest introduction to its line of kitchen machines is the Universal Plus, a combination stand mixer and food processor with a powerful 800-watt motor. It comes with four speed settings and a pulse function; a 6.5-quart mixing bowl; and a dough hook, scraper and double beater. One of the two models also includes a blender. Optional attachments such as a juicer, meat grinder, shredding and slicing disks, and whisks allow the Universal Plus to multi-task efficiently.

Brew Express in-wall coffee makers connect directly to power and water supplies, tapping into either a cold-water line or a bottled-water dispenser. Brew Trak technology ensures a consistent brew temperature regardless of incoming water temperature or electricity voltage variation, and the thermal carafe maintains temperature and coffee quality in or out of the heating element. Available in 12-cup, 10-cup and four-cup sizes.

KitchenAid marked its 90th anniversary with a special edition stand mixer in Candy Apple Red. As a tribute to earlier models, the 5-quart Artisan Series stand mixer includes a clear glass bowl (with a handle, pour spout, and measurment lines) in place of the stainless steel bowl sold with today's models. The 10-speed stand mixer features a tilt-head design for easy bowl access and can accommodate eight to nine cups of flour. The mixer comes with three accessories: a flat beater, a dough hook and a wire whip. KitchenAid is making the glass bowl available separately this fall.

Thanks to a patent-pending mixing paddle that mixes and aerates ingredients, the Cuisinart frozen yogurt-ice cream and sorbet maker creates frozen desserts in less than 20 minutes. The 1.5-quart freezer bowl contains a cooling liquid between a double-insulated wall that eliminates the need for ice.

The new KitchenAid Pro Line toaster collection features an auto-sensing function that automatically lowers bread to begin toasting, and after toast is finished, re-lowers the toast to keep it warm if it has not been removed. Additional features found on most models include a defrost button, LCD digital displays, and a progress bar that counts down toasting time. All models feature extra-wide slots with a bagel button that toasts just the interior side of the bagel and a high-lift lever that minimizes burnt fingers. Available in two- and four-slice versions.

The steam model also includes digital controls, pre-programmed cook times and a 13-inch pizza stone. Dishwasher-safe drip pans, a bake temperature of up to 450 degrees, warming functions and 120-minute timers all add large-appliance functionality.
