I had to choose between this mixer and the Bosch. It was a close call, but because I am cooking ALL the bread and lots of cookies for a large family, I decided this one was my best choice. I bought the one with the least expensive finish after being assured that the different finishes did not affect durability, and I am more than satisfied with the appearance of the mixer. I have not regretted buying it for one minute. I make 6 loaves of whole wheat bread with ease. The machine doesn't budge or try to "walk" on the counter. The machine is remarkably quiet and I have never once heard the motor strain. I don't even have to use the heavy duty dough hook that came with it! The timer allows me to clean up the kitchen or go sit down and rest for 10 minutes while my bread kneads.

When I make cookies or cakes, I set the speed to high to cream my butter and sugar and it works beautifully. I had wondered how on earth that peculiar roller and scraper would do cakes and cookies, but there was no need to worry!
I also bought the flaker attachment and was delighted with it. It is easy to attach and detach, easy to use, very quiet, and does exactly what it is supposed to do.
I plan the buy the blender attachment in the near future. It is very powerful and has the straight sides that keep materials from clinging near the bottom and sticking, so you don't have to be scrape and restart.
An attachment is available so you can use this product for grinding grains, etc., without electricity. This may be a consideration for some people.
This product looks like it will last forever and is so easy to clean. (One big factor that steered me to this one was a few complaints I heard that cleaning the Bosch was difficult if dough "crawled" into the inner works. That can't happen on this machine.)
The instructions I read on-line seemed confusing when it talked about setting the roller in a different place depending on the size of your recipe, but when you get the machine in hand it all falls in place pretty quickly. The sales assistant on the phone had assured me it took her only one time using it to understand how to set the roller. I agree.
When the DLX Assistent arrived everyone who saw it immediately commented that you could look at it and tell instantly that it was of the highest quality. If you still are not sure, look at www.breadforlife.net for an exhaustive review of both the Bosch (which is a good product) and the Electrolux, which is the creme de la creme, in my opinion! This machine is a real pleasure to use.
