There are companies selling Bosch knock-offs of the cookie paddles. We unknowingly bought the fake ones from Kitchen Resources sold by Kitchen Krafts Inc. and they broke after their first use. It took Kitchen Resources a month and a half to replace them. These are not the real thing. Make sure that they are Bosch products. I would not buy from Kitchen Krafts Inc. if I were you because they are misleading. These are a waste of money and time.
If you want to use your Bosch to do cookies these are a must have. They sweep the sides much better than using the dough hook, and aerate the batter fabulously. Don't need to cream butter separately because of the power. Get a second bowl while you're at it!
HINT: Buy a small baby bottle brush to clean these (Dr. Brown's brush). There are little divits in the paddles that need to be cleaned with something small, and a bottle brush works great.
Cookies are the #1 thing we make with our bosch, family tradition! These solve the problem of having to scrape the sides of the bowl when making cookies. Perfect dough every time. Great product for cookies!!
Save your money. What works best for me is the instructions in the Universal handbook, ie, use the wire wisks to cream the butter-sugar. Remove the wisks, insert the dough hook and mix in the flour and other stuff. Much quicker, better mix, easier clean-up. Up date 3-10: Have found that if I mix the eggs first, then add the sugar mix, it doesnt pile up around the center. Latest batch of choc.chip cookies had great results with this paddle kit. Go ahead and buy this set.
