If you want to mix dough in the kitchen, it takes a lot of power. Nowadays, more and more people use a food processor for that. Many kitchen machines, for instance, often come with a chopper as an accessory and with this, you can also knead dough. But this is mainly meant when you want occasional dough, for daily use a dough machine with a metal bowl is a better option. Brands like Kenwood and Kitchenaid are the best-known brands for this type of machine.

This kitchen mixer has 6 different settings so you can effortlessly determine the right texture for your dough.
A 5-litre capacity ensures that you can mix large quantities simultaneously. A whisk, mixing cup and dough hooks are included. By the way, the parts are dishwasher-safe, so you can easily clean them after use. By the way, the appliance is also equipped with splash guard.

Bosch mum54230 Styline
More convenience in the kitchen with a new kitchen blender? Then you should definitely get the Bosch mum54230. This food processor has an output of no less than 900 watts.
That means kneading dough and whipping cream will be an effortless trick with this food processor. With a 3.9-litre capacity and 7 settings, you’re well placed to make plenty of dough with the right texture. If you need a brief power boost every now and then, there’s always the pulse setting. With included grater and slicer, dough hooks, whisk, mixing cup, juicer and blender, you have (dishwasher-safe) conveniences you could wish for.
For heavy dough, we recommend either the Kenwood kMix KMX750CR or the Bosch mum54230 Styline, simply because they have a very powerful output of 1,000 and 900 watts respectively, versus KitchenAid’s 300 watts. These machines are better at kneading heavy dough well.
Needless to say, it is much faster with a food processor than by hand. Around 2 minutes of kneading with a food processor is comparable to 10 to 12 minutes of kneading by hand. So a few minutes is enough and with a food processor, it goes around 10x faster than by hand!
