Win with #MixlikeaBosch

With #MixlikeaBosch, six readers can experience a once-in-a-lifetime cooking competition where one lucky winner will walk away with a new Bosch OptiMUM kitchen machine valued at R12 999 and be featured in F&HE with their winning recipe!

In 1886, Robert Bosch founded the “Workshop for Precision Mechanics and Electrical Engineering” in Stuttgart, Germany. This was the birth of the superior-quality range of kitchen appliances we know today. Along with its innovative strength and social commitment, Bosch Home Appliances is developing products that focus on green technologies and user convenience.

One such product that sets Bosch apart is its new and highly covetable OptiMUM kitchen machine. Sleek and contemporary, this appliance is so much more than a mixer – the integrated scale allows you to measure ingredients in the bowl, and its extra-powerful 1 500-watt motor makes light work of even the heaviest dough.

What’s more, the OptiMUM’s stainless-steel mixing bowl’s capacity of 5,5L allows processing large quantities – for example, up to 3,5kg of cake batter can be mixed in one go, making the OptiMUM your best friend in the kitchen when entertaining bigger crowds! Added to the mix, the OptiMUM’s 3D PlanetaryMixing technology offers stirring movements in three directions at the same time to ensure your ingredients are always perfectly combined and nothing stays stuck to the edge of the bowl.

Along with a variety of accessories for a vast number of cooking and baking ideas, Bosch’s OptiMUM is a must-have for any serious foodie. Visit for more information, images and specifications about the Bosch OptiMUM appliance.


Six readers will be selected to partake in an exciting cook-off at the Bosch Live Kitchen in the newly launched BSH Brand Experience Centre in Kramerville, Johannesburg on Saturday, 19 May at 9am. The selected participants will be contacted by an F&HE representative in the first week of May 2018. All appliances and ingredients will be supplied to each participant (as set forth by the recipes submitted). Each participant must prepare a main dish within one hour and a delectable dessert within 30 minutes. Participants are not allowed to prepare their ingredients at home and each dish will be judged on execution, appearance and taste.


A carefully selected panel of judges will select one winner to walk away with the new, multifunctional Bosch OptiMUM and also be featured in F&HE with one of the winning recipes!


Select a recipe for a main dish, as well as a dessert recipe that you would like to prepare during the cook-off.

Next, send us these recipes (and photographs, if possible) with an explanation as to why you think each of the recipes is a winning dish, as well as a list of equipment and appliances needed to prepare these dishes to [email protected] with #MixlikeaBosch in the subject line. Please include your name and surname, ID number, address and contact number in your email.
