My new spiral mixer
yesterday my new spiral mixer arrived. I ordered it in Italy and me living in the Netherlands had to wait for over week for it to arrive. (DHL didn't understand my adress notation!) Anyway my patiences paid of. I cannot emphasize enough how happy I am with this mixer. After years of trying different mixer (all planetary) I hoped that I finally found the right mixer for me. And I can tell you I am pretty sure this is the one!
It is a spiral mixer with moving bowl and central shaft. It can mix from 500 grams up to 3000 grams of flour (so 5 kg of dough depending on amount of water). The engine is only 370 watt but the deep low sound it makes is uncomparable with my old kenwood chef of 800 watt (ok I have to admit that this mixer only has one gear and the kenwood has many more).
It took me 3 years to find out that a spiral mixer with a household size existed, so that is why I like to share it with you all. Maybe I can inspire some others.
For those interested here is a link to a movie I made of the mixer at work:
It comes from this store:
Click on kneading machines. It is the IMC5E model. (the smallest)
