Bosch has made some interesting attachments for the Universal mixer over the years. In a previous post, I put up some scans of the food mill / strainer. Today we have some pictures of the potato peeling bowl. Not just for potatoes, the bowl will peel other hard vegetables.
You add water and vegetables to the bowl, turn on the mixer and let it run. The disc in the bottom of the bowl turns ‘round and ‘round. The abrasives on the disc and bowl sides scrub off the peels into the water.
It’s not perfect, of course. It can’t dig out an eye for you, but it does a pretty good job.
You can find the manual here: Potato Peeling Bowl Manual.
It says: “Germany Importe D’Allemagne” … Google Translate tells me that’s “Imports from Germany” and the language is French … why French text on the bottom of an attachment for a German mixer? Does that mean my bowl came to the US from France?
