Wanted - 10 qt Hobart c-100 attachments (whip/whisk and dough hook)

Hello-

I just bought a used 10 qt Hobart c-100, and I need some things: a whip/whisk, dough hook, and possibly another bowl.  Does anyone have any of these that they might want to sell??  Or maybe you know someone who does??  There are just a couple on ebay, but pricey, especially the whip.

Thanks!

Debbie,

I just bought a dough hook for my c-100 last week! Like you, I was sick at how much everybody wanted for this part especially (for some unknown reason) the ones that fit  my c-100. I have not beeen able to utilize the mixer's full potentential without the dough hook.

My Hobart was built in the 1950's and I was not sure if the few hooks that I found advertised on the internet would even fit my old machine. Last week I fount a place on ebay that had them at a SMOKIN' price so I thought what the heck . . .

The hook arrived in 2 days, was built like a tank and fit perfectly. Now I'm making double batches of bagles, etc., and the Hobart does not even break a sweat. Here's the link, it is from an ebay store called "Butcher Works" You may find what you need, Good-luck!

Hi Scott-

Question for you about the dough hook.  I bought one last week too and received it 2 days ago.  I was so excited I immediately attached it to the mixer to have a look and I was a bit surprised as to whether or not it was the proper dough hook.  This hook doesn't go down to the bottom of the bowl, it has about a 1/2 to 3/4 inch gap from the bottom of the bowl!!!  Does yours fit like this too?  It doesn't seem right to me.  However, my husband (the engineer) thinks that dough may need that clearance at the bottom.  Also, do you have a whip?  Does it reach the bottom?  The paddle I got with the c100 reaches the bottom, so I'm a bit confused as to what is the proper fit???

Enjoy your c100.

for a dough HOOK that is, i believe(its how mine is) quite normal, it works differently from a spiral and other attachments.

So it's normal for a dough hook to have a 1/2 inch gap from the bottom??

What about the whip?  Shouldn't that just skim the bottom of the bowl?

I used to have that problem with my KitchenAid, and used to drive me nuts b/c it wouldn't mix the ingredients on the bottom of the bowl.

I'm just trying to figure out what's the proper fit??

For a whip, it will have very little clearance, but should not be touching the bottom.

The way the hooks apear to work, provided the dough batch is large enough, is to slap the dough against the side of the mixer instead of just moving the dough.  It does sometimes take longer for ingredients to incorperate, but never too long.

That was just the answer I was waiting for.  Thanks so much for clearing that up!!!
