I've used or otherwise come across Bosch power tools but was less familiar with the company's various other industrial and commercial offerings. In addition to being the world's biggest supplier of automotive components, Bosch has applied their engineering and manufacturing know-how to several countertop kitchen appliances, of which the MUM 5 is the latest model.
Gary Leavitt of L'Chef (U.S. distributor of Bosch kitchen appliances, as well as L'Equip and Nutrimill) also related, in so many words, that founder Robert Bosch's last will and testament "stipulated that the earnings of the [private] company should be allocated to charitable causes." (From the Wikipedia entry, which has a badass portrait of Bobby Bosch back in the day, c. 1888.)
L'Chef also distributes the Nutrimill Grain Mill, which can be used to turn a variety of dry / non-oily grains into flour or cereal. This apparently is a fairly common practice in Europe, but I can easily see it catching on Stateside, what with the increasing conscientiousness about how and what we eat. (I was unable to find information about the model pictured above and featured in the video below, so you'll have to contact them for more details—assuming the Housewares Show went well, they may be available at a retailer near you.)
See both products in action:
Lastly, L'Chef also manufactures and distributes L'Equip Dehydrators, which are a veritable Swiss Army Knife for home gastronomers. Don't be fooled by its monolithic, Snow-White-meets-car-stereo aesthetic: the multi-tiered, user-friendly units can be used to make all variety of dried fruit product, jerkies and even yogurt.
