KA’s customer service is way, way, way above Cuisinart, also, in my (limited, but actual) experience.

The timer on the Cuisinart actually shuts the machine off.  Only a minor convenience; I’ve got a lot of digital timers around the kitchen and setting them is a habit.

The Bosch can do everything.  The standard configuration only includes twin whisks and twin dough hooks.  There is no paddle.  If you want to make cookies, you would start off creaming the butter with the whisks, but would transition to the dough hook after adding the flour.  From videos, that seems to work well.  However, I bought the “cookie paddles” accessory, along with a scraper blade attachment. The paddles work great for cookies.

To me, this style of mixer is vastly more sensible than any top motor sort of design.  I kick myself for buying the Cuisinart, but at the time, I had decided on the Electrolux and everyone in the US was out of stock on that, and I needed a mixer fast.

What happened to your KA?

Died.  Pretty common for KAs.  Pretty satisfied with the mixer otherwise; even though the 5 qt was a bit limiting, the bowl was wide and it had the bowl lift, rather than the tilt head.  I’d replaced the cast aluminum blade and hook with coated ones, so they could go in the dishwasher, and had bought an extra bowl, which came in very handy around holiday time.  Could probably get it fixed, but it’d probably be expensive.

Is your new Bosch the only mixer you now have?

I still have the Cuisinart.  Perhaps it might be useful around the holidays, since the 7 quart bowl is helpful for large quantities of stuff.  Even so, I had put an ad on Craigslist, but no takers.
