fork mixer vs spiral mixer

September 9, 2012 - 11:13pm -- h20flour

hey guys, 

So im hearing alot of talk lately on fork mixers. why is this? are they that great? what is wrong with a spiral mixer? 

I've been making sourdough my whole life using a spiral mixer, why would I be now getting told that I should look at replacing my faithful spiral for a fork? will it make a difference to my doughs, or my bread for that matter? 

I just want to hear what peoples thoughts are on this topic as I know nothing about fork mixers.

Got a new SP5 Spiral Mixer - Any tips or best practices?

January 22, 2010 - 2:44pm -- dantortorici

Just got a SP5 Spiral Mixer from TMB. Will try it out this weekend.

Was wondering if other SP5 owners have some tips or best practices for using it. What advice would you give?

What is the biggest size batch of dough you have made in this?

What is your method for cleaning it?
