Fork v. Spiral - and is the Santos "fork" an oblique?
If the baking gods bless me, I think I'm going to relegate my KA for other purposes and look for a dedicated bread mixer. I've looked at the Ankarsrum and it's still in the running, but I'm considering a spiral (e.g., Famag) or a fork (e.g., Santos). The fork is comparable to the spiral, and I'm keeping my e-bay eyes on (yes, one British baker scored a barely used fork for 200 GBP).
I've looked up several videos incl. one side-by-side of the spiral and fork mixer on a production level, and it looked like the fork was a really gentle mix. That said, looking at comparable windowpanes, they both did the job.
Anyone with any experience with the fork mixer? And I believe that's what we commonly know as an oblique mixer, is that right?
