After testing the Blendtec® Mix-n-Blend II, Kitchen Aid® and the Bosch® Universal Kitchen Machine side by side, they are somewhat similar on the mixing side, with the Blendtec® easier to use because of its intuitive user controls and bowl design. As we compared the mixing capabilities, the Blendtec® Mix-n-Blend II outperformed the Bosch® Universal Kitchen Machine and the Kitchen Aid® on many levels. The AutoKnead function on the Blendtec® really takes the guesswork out of making bread, it will auto shut off when the gluten is formed in the bread. The Blendtec® mixer will perform with the same functionality as the Kitchen Aid® and the Bosch® combined with a lot more power! The Blendtec® blender has the same functionality as the Vita-Mix, able to make ice cream, soup and grind wheat into fine flour. Because of the square jar design, a tamper is not needed. The blade assembly is permanent in the jar making cleanup a breeze! The Bosch® blender needs to be completely dissembled, dried then put back together. The Blendtec® blender really outshines the Bosch® blender by a mile.A nice feature of the Blendtec® Mix-n-Blend II is that it is able to fit under most kitchen cabinets while fully assembled. The compact footprint makes it a complete kitchen center that stays on your counter and can replace up to 7 different appliances.
