Tip - Ankarsrum Dough Hook - Alternate Method
Jim, aka Jimbtv, told me recently about a new method he discovered to use the Ankarsrum dough hook. He gave me permission to post it.
Yesterday, I got a chance to try the method. I was using the dough hook for a 60% dough. The dough kept running up the hook. Then I tried his advice. I removed the hook from the swing arm, but left it attached in the attachment hole. Since it wasn’t attached to the swing arm I was able to manually move the hook in a greater arc by hand. After this change the dough never ran up the hook again. But the greatest benefit was that I was able to knead the dough much more efficiently as I manually moved the hook.
Obviously, this can’t be done with the roller because it needs the swing arm to attach it to the mixer.
If you get a chance, give it a try. You may really like it. I know I do.
